NEW CASTLE —
Editor, The News:
Recent IRS scandals have brought forth new discussions on how to replace our outdated tax code system.
There is also serious concern about the ability of the IRS to be in charge of implementing the Obamacare program.
To accomplish this implementation, thousands of new hires into the IRS will be required. These will have to be qualified in the weaponry to fire the millions of bullets now being stockpiled by the IRS.
The discussion is to decide on which tax plan would be best for the taxpayer. The new plan would have to be simple and replace a 70,000-page tax code system that most taxpayers cannot use.
These taxpayers have three choices: Don’t pay taxes, lie on the tax form or hire someone to do their taxes. A new system would close loopholes and put tax attorneys out of business, to the benefit of the taxpayer.
The fair tax system would be a consumption tax based on spending habits. The more you buy, the more taxes you would pay. The taxpayer’s obligation to finance the operation of the government would be based on consumption.
The flat tax system would be based on total income. The corporation tax structure would be based on profit margin, not tax write-offs, as is the case today. Individual taxes would fall within one or two tax rates with limited, if any, tax write-offs.
This is our biggest opportunity to fundamentally transform America back to the basic tenets of the Constitution and the concerns of our Founding Fathers, which included limited government with its primary responsibility of protecting the United States.
The present government should not be controlling all aspects of our lives and we must put a stop to it.
The future of our Republic hangs in the balance.
