Super Taxation (Surtax)

A levy upon a tax levy. For example, your base income could earn you a rate of 15%, but the extra levy would add a flat 3% to your rate.

Windfall Taxation

This is an interesting form of taxation. One that has a bit of potential. The idea, behind WFT's, is to tax profits instead of income. So if a companies gets a 5% increase in net profit, then 1% of that will be levied. The problem would obviously be...  how it aims directly at growth   more

Negative Taxation

Instead of taxing the lower class, we give them money in the form of liabilities, in order to stimulate them. Don't personally agree, but whatever.

Stealth Taxation

When the government deducts money through loopholes. Mostly directed towards corporations, but I can see it being used against persons of interest. If it were ideal, a agency directed towards exploiting loopholes would be created, but I can see the ... headlines already   more

Regressive Taxation

A regressive tax is a tax imposed in such a manner that the tax rate decreases as the amount subject to taxation increases. "Regressive" describes a distribution effect on income or expenditure, referring to the way the rate progresses from high to ... low, where the average tax rate exceeds the marginal tax rate. In terms of individual income and wealth, a regressive tax imposes a greater burden on the poor than on the rich — there is an inverse relationship between the tax rate and the taxpayer's ability to pay as measured by assets, consumption, or income. These taxes tend to reduce the tax incidence of people with higher ability-to-pay, as they shift the incidence disproportionately to those with lower ability-to-pay.The regressivity of a particular tax can also factor the propensity of the taxpayers to engage in the taxed activity relative to their resources. In other words, if the activity being taxed is more likely to be carried out by the poor and less likely to be carried out by the rich, the tax may be considered regressive. To measure the effect, the income elasticity of the good being taxed as well as the income substitution effect must be considered   more

I really like the idea of Surtax's, which were more progressive then what we have now.
Jifpop09 says2014-05-02T04:27:01.1264039-05:00
Juan, you do know we already have a progressive tax?
Juan_Pablo says2014-05-02T04:29:23.5525779-05:00
Well, it's become less progress over the last 3 decades, jifpop. That's why the federal deficit (and national debt) have slowly been growing over the years.
Juan_Pablo says2014-05-02T04:30:06.2492305-05:00
Progress = progressive
Jifpop09 says2014-05-02T04:30:39.8211409-05:00
IDK, haven't they been raising the rates slowly over the years. Anyways, I have 5 debates to create right now
Jifpop09 says2014-05-02T04:33:15.7899409-05:00
We wouldn't need a national debt if we still had the national bank. I think lowering the debt ratio 30% would be ideal
Juan_Pablo says2014-05-02T04:33:28.1451409-05:00
Tax rates on the wealthy are at the lowest they've been in the last 5 decades. And conservatives still want them to be even lower! That's not sustainable.
Jifpop09 says2014-05-02T04:34:17.0403963-05:00
You should check out my debates I'm rolling out by the way. One every 15 minutes
Juan_Pablo says2014-05-02T04:35:00.6435143-05:00
LOL. You're busy! I can only handle one debate at a time.
Juan_Pablo says2014-05-02T04:57:11.4111409-05:00
Hypothetically we wouldn't have to raise taxes on the wealthy if low wage earners were rewarded higher wages from profits, because then the federal/state governments would be able to tax workers more to acquire their revenue. Raising the federal minimum wage would actually reduce the need to increase taxes very much on the wealthy.
Jifpop09 says2014-05-02T05:09:48.3491531-05:00
Hint: Install a national bank, and half of the tax burden is relieved
Jifpop09 says2014-05-02T06:01:54.6933690-05:00
I really want the Surtax reinstated. It worked extremely well when we had it.

Voting for a flat tax is honestly the equivalent of voting for creationism -- both are equally rubbish.
Wylted says2014-05-02T07:47:02.8220790-05:00
The best taxation is no taxation.
progressivedem22 says2014-05-02T14:43:42.7912339-05:00
I guess you liked deficits then, Wylted.

"Taxes are the price of civilization." If you want to live in a world of law and order, you need to implement a tax system.
Juan_Pablo says2014-05-02T14:51:13.3348339-05:00
Of course the tax system should be fair to people depending on the amount of income acquired and it needs to be efficient and well-managed, so that the civilization that employs it can be properly sustained.
Anarchocapitalism says2014-05-03T12:32:35.4235129-05:00
No Taxation.

This was in my "popular" section. Just noticed it's 2 goddamn years old. I should stick to "new."
