The current tax code has grown into something incomprehensible. With over 70,000 pages of regulations and more changes made every year, even the I.R.S. can't quote every technicality. And how many billions of wasted hours do Americans spend preparing those taxes every year?
The IRS has lost all semblance of "Service." Instead, this agency hounds taxpayers and businesses. Our entire financial lives are exposed on a government whim with intrusive methods that are clearly NOT what the founding fathers intented. It's high time to dismantle this ineffective, antagonistic bureaucracy and give people back their incomes.
It taxes purchases rather than income is a fairer system. Everyone buys things, so the tax burden is spread among the full population. And it's ultimately equal. Your tax rate isn't higher if you have a trust fund of lower if you own a house instead of rent. Best of all, the only way to dodge these taxes is to never buy a thing.
It encourages a strong work ethic. Since you get to keep every dollar you make, people and businesses will be willing to work harder to get ahead. And all those efforts can go towards generating earnings instead of documenting them.
It encourages savings. The more people save and invest, the lower their overall tax burden. And each person and family gets to choose what's best for them. It can help turn us from a nation of debtors into a nation of savers.
Family Allowances offset any regressive effects. Those who must spend all their income for essentials like food and shelter will pay virtually no taxes. The monthly allowance checks guarantee that the plan is fair for every family.
Retail prices will no longer include embedded taxes. Corporations already pass along their taxes in the cost of their goods. When we eliminate those taxes, we reduce the cost of goods and consumer prices will go down, not up. Consequently, the net costs paid by consumers will stay basically the same.
U.S. exports will be more competitive in the global marketplace. Goods and services consumed outside the U.S. won't have any sales tax, only whatever tariffs apply. As a result, our products will no longer be the most expensive choices in Brazil or China or India or here at home. We'll sell more, make more income for U.S. companies and turn around the trade deficit.
Offshore companies will pay their fair share. If a company sells goods or services in the U.S., they will pay taxes in the U.S. Better yeet, there will no longer be any reason for companies to go offshore to hide their incomes. This could help bring back jobs and ultimately benefit the whole U.S. economy.
A stronger market for used goods will emerge. Since taxes are only levied on new goods or services, used items will resell tax free. This will increase demand for everything used. More small businesses will rise up to meet that demand and overall waste will be reduced.
