Is it time for a flat tax, thus severely limiting the power and scope of the IRS?

Update:

"Make the 1% pay more... no more loopholes"

Uhhh, that's my point... a FLAT TAX, no loopholes, no deductions.

    No - the progressive income tax is not the problem. All the special exemptions and deductions are the problem.

    You state the motive that a flat tax just isn't how one can go. It would be a tax that as a percent hits scale down sales humans rough, hits core sales humans harder given that they have got more cash to spend on goods which might be taxable and hits the wealthy men and women the least. We'd like a graduated earnings tax. This variety scandal has occurred with the IRS prior to now. There have been just a few scandals, folks are thrown out and the brand new persons be aware of now not to do that once more. The IRS works when they have got enough individuals to do their jobs. I real think that this happened due to the fact that they wanted short cuts to do the job of checking out who certified for this new tax popularity and it was once easy to get the laptop to choose out these words. These conservative political businesses utilising the word teaparty and in some cases patriot have been easy to identify and in ninety% of the cases didn't qualify as an group for the public good. They have been handy goals for the IRS to manage to do their job and weed out agencies that did not qualify for this reputation. They are political firms and do not qualify. No. No flat tax and we'd like the IRS. We simply need a tax code that helps create a level enjoying subject by way of taxing the rich at so much higher premiums and removing the entire legal guidelines that allow corporations to refuge most of their taxable earnings. Now we will be able to ask the IRS to manage the well being care legislation so we truly do need them. The tax code is ridiculous and wishes to be revamped.

    no its not

    a flat tax reduces investment

    with a flat tax,

    higher income earners do not need to reduce taxable income so they do not need to make the investments and engage in business spending in the way they do under a marginal system

    flat tax = shrinking economy = higher unemployment

    A flat tax wouldn't do that. There would still be people hiding money and cheating.... so there will still need to be investigations.

    No. Just make sure that the 1% are actually paying more instead of paying less than the middle class.
