Could a flat tax work if it was implemented with exceptions?


If a flat tax was implemented having exclusions like food, but a higher rate on luxury items would it work?

    Great info here! I was not surprised about the government wanting to control us, just hoping as a country we could ban together and get things back to the way they should be. Our founding fathers are turning over in their graves! Thanks for sharing

    Stated in its simplest form but I tend to agree.

    I don't think it's fair to tax necessities like food, but not much else. @Larry Wall, yes I was thinking along the lines of a sales tax where everything but the exceptions get taxed, that way everyone pays their fair share on everything.

    I understand your explanation so I'm going to take it one step further. Eliminate each person filing taxes at all. Stick with flat tax, keeping essentials like food exempt. I know this is pie in the sky but thought it might be interesting.
