Yes, I believe that the government should implement a flat tax. A flat tax would ensure that everyone pays their fair share regardless. It may come to a point that those that are making less still may be burdened because at what tax is it actually a good tax for everyone?
The current tax system in the united states is progressive and it punishes achievement. A flat tax is much more fair. It eases the burden on the poor, is fair to the middle class, and to the rich as well. Everybody paying the same percentage is much more fair. You wouldn't have to pay for a myriad of different programs, and get taxed multiple times a year. You'd see your whole pay check. No sales tax at the supermarket. Just a once a year tax. No endless paperwork, no loopholes, no confusing misdirection. Just a simple flat percentage.
Yes, the government should implement a flat tax, because it would be so much easier to do taxes. Rather than taxes being a big exhausting thing to hope that you do right every year, we could just file a simple form which would calculate the amount easily and call it good.
I personally agree,In a flat-rate system, all are equal. We would all pay the same percentage taxes, thereby keeping it fair. A person who makes $100,000 a year paying 20% taxes pays $20,000. A person who makes $50,000 a year paying the same 20% tax rate, pays $10,000. It's only fair to have the same percentages across the board. Otherwise the very wealthy pay less and less percent the more they make.
I personally think that In the early 1990s, Rep. Dick Armey (RTX) proposed a flat tax. He would have junked the Internal Revenue Code and replaced it with a system designed to raise revenue in a much less destructive fashion. The core principles were to tax income at one low rate, to eliminate double taxation of saving and investment, and to wipe out the special preferences, credits, exemptions, deductions, and other loopholes that caused complexity, distortions, and corruption.
