that is why I favor taxing from $1 , one rate people and corps. For people, no exemptions, no deductions, all file as individuals.

I see you didn't answer the idea of "If you are old enough to go to war, you should be old enough to vote" argument from the Vietnam War that was also in my post. A good number of states only have an age limit of 16 for when you can legally work. Your $1 helps this by removing only seasonal workers, it still means that effectively the age limit is 21/22, three years AFTER a person could choose to go to war.

A flat tax of 30% of any income collected in a tax year of $500,000 or more for married and single file status.

OR
Individual taxes and no longer needing to do tax returns.

Taxes be as such:
Deducted from taxpayer income throughout the year:
2% Emergency Health tax with a 3% cap
4% Infrastructure tax with a 5% cap
2% Environmental tax with a 4% cap
6% Medicare & Medicaid tax with a 8% cap
4% Social Security tax with a 5% cap
2% Energy tax with a 3% cap
10% Budget/Debt tax with a 12% cap
4% Government Operational Services with a 5% cap

Be on sales and purchases:
2% Gasoline/Diesel tax with a 4% cap
4% Sales tax with a 4% cap
15% Flat tax with phased-in elimination of deductions and exemptions. Everyone pays something... EVERYONE, not just the top 50% as it is now.

It's an important plank in the Communist/Socialist plan.

I too would like to see a fairer, flatter, less complicated tax structure without the loopholes, but I ain't holding my breath!

Yes less loopholes less confusion.

No tax returns.

Receive a refund check in January or February based off of percentage of surplus budget.

I think taxing 10% on $30,000 of income and then when you go over $30,000 income the income over that amount is taxed at 20% is fair.

Then a National sales tax of 5% or less. With a Constitutional Amendment saying the NST can't go over 5%. No tax on anything medical related or groceries.

I believe that flat taxes tend to be regressive.
