Would you rather have a:

Flat tax of 20% of any income over $30,000 for married and single file status
&
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

None of the above.
I prefer a national sales tax to replace our current tax system

That way EVERY BODY pays their "fair share". Even drug dealers, and others, would pay when they buy their Mr T gold and Cadillac Escalated etc!

This is a false choice.

Income taxes can also be "smaller taxes," depending on the way they're structured.

If you want income tax, everybody shall pay the same AMOUNT.

Why should Person A pays more than Person B when we have a one person one vote system?

Yes the only difference is the money, supposedly uncertainty in guarantee it it will, will go towards where the tax is allocated for. Also uncertainty if the Government would add more taxes to.compensate for increase in spending and change caps increasing the tax.

Option B does include a National Sales Tax and a income tax as well.

To compensate for doing away with an income tax the sales tax would be very very high I believe.

With option B everyone is paying the same income tax.

Option A - Flat tax of 30% of any income over $30,000 for married and single file status and a 4% sales tax

No tax returns or any other additional taxes outside

A flat business tax of 25% on gross profit and share dividends.
