Do you know what a nightmare that would cause just in red tape and paperwork alone? Not to mention the privacy issues and concerns. Really, do you
want the minimum wage sales clerk to know how much you make in a year?
Then you would have a lot of richer folk trying their best to hide exactly how much they make. There would be a nice, new, big black market for under
the counter work that isn't reported. Don't forget the poor class denying any and all pay increases they get.
I don't see it working, and would not want to be a part of that system. Besides I still feel that sales tax should be eliminated anyhow. We already
pay federal, state, and local income tax. Why do we really need to pay sales tax, gas tax, property tax, and etc. We are actually being taxed out our
buts, and don't say much since we don't see the entire impact all the taxes put together have on our wallets.
If people could put all the taxes they pay out a month or year together including social security and employer with held taxes, everyone would get a
large shock including myself I suspect.
Don't find a new way to tax us. Do like Ron Paul would like to do, eliminate taxes. If possible, eliminate all taxes.
