Some nonresidents do, in fact, pay taxes

Dear Editor,

Leticia Sanders, have you asked every “nonresident” if, in fact, they pay taxes?

My husband is a nonresident, meaning he has not received residency in the United States. Yet he has been paying taxes since he has been here.

Also, as they said in the papers sent home on the first day of school, you can’t pack a lunch for less. So you are getting a good deal.

I agree that there are loopholes, but being upset with the school isn’t going to fix anything. The problem is with the government and social services guidelines.
