National Sales Tax?
Honestly filling out your taxes should be one one page. I feel a national sales or consumption tax would be so efficient, I guess that is why the government doesn't do it.
I would have a 0 income tax
Perhaps a 10% state sales tax and a 18% nationals sales tax.
I would also incorporate a more progressive tax for capital gains and Dividend taxes.
No loop holes here. Paris Hilton buys her dog a 100,000 dollar collar... well it is taxed. A consumption tax is flat, but progressive by nature in the sense you buy more **** when you have more money.
Literally one page to fill out your taxes. Name and all that info, Capital Gains and Dividend income made, any charitable donations. Signature.
Bam done, you owe this, or we owe you that. So simple.
Anyone else think it will ever happen, people have talked about it for a long time, but nothing. Thoughts?
Jackie Bradley Junior.... that is all
