In most wealthy countries, married people file separate income tax returns, reporting their individual income, just as they would if they were single. But, in the United States, a system of joint tax returns results in a marriage penalty for some, and a marriage bonus for others. The marriage penalty is the additional taxes that couples pay when filing jointly, compared to what they would pay if each person were allowed to filed individually. The penalty stems mostly from the fact that tax rates rise as income rises — and the brackets for married people and single people are different. Yet the penalty is far from uniform. The largest marriage penalties fall on couples on either end of the income spectrum — poor or affluent — as well as on couples in which the two people are making similar amounts of money. In marriages without children, the largest bonuses, in percentage terms, occur when couples have income just under $100,000 and only one earner.

What a shame as parsley sauce is actually a really delicious, quick and simple sauce to make and will jazz up many a piece of fish, or baked ham. It is firmly back on my repertoire and i am happy to report, I am now seeing it regularly making a comeback in restaurants too. It is the simplicity and freshness of this sauce that makes this a real winner. Parsley is the classic herb in this dish but there are other tasty alternatives, see the notes below.
