Every Body says that the Flat tax is great...
But aside from debate of illegal vs legal
The system I would Love to see is Tax on consumption!
Sales Tax, That's what I think would be easiest
There would be less tax over all brought in, but it would be paid by those who Spend Money particularly on items they don't need
I smoke, I don't mind the 2.00 extra I pay for a pack, it's fair, can't really complain about it, I don't have to smoke... ever, If I choose too,
I can pay the bit extra
I think it would encourage Americans to be Healthier, waste less, not be so decadent...which, we certainly are!
Income tax is hard...
all my shpiel above, i really don't wast money and I make a good living but i'm supposed to save some aside for quaterly taxes and LOL... It's too
If they taxed me when I was SPENDING my money, that would be easy, no forms, no nightmares with the IRS which can be very intimidating and makes me
hate the govt sometimes and who needs that emotion in a country?
If I want a new couch, i can spend the extra 100.00
If I want a hot car it can be 15 G more
and that's easy
But ask me to make 15 G in 90 days for example and have any left over?
I fail at that always and make up ways to get out iof it, start writing things off, looking for loopholes
It doesn't gert paid anyway
that's why I say I'm not rich because...
I mention this in another post, I need to get my veneers done... 14 G at the frackin Dentist, because I used to fight allot as a kid 20 years ago and
now I pay and pay again every 5 years or so for caps for my friggin teeth as my price to pay for being a scrapper...
(world has no forgiveness I swear)
But anyway, do you think, when the need is there i'll be paying uncle sam or paying for my Veneers
People that say the rich figure a way out...they are CORRECT
Because I'll start a business that fails and "loose" 15 G or write off part of my rent and power... or some thing to find a way to afford my
It gives you choice in what you spend
It teaches frugality
Leave the income alone, it just creates stress and intervention and crime
