Is it time to replace the IRS with a true fair tax system?


Is it time to replace the IRS and current disproportionate tax system with a 1% charge on every commercial monetary transaction that creates equal contribution for all?

    I agree. And the consumption tax must be applied to all commercial transactions. This includes all business transactions as well.

    This latest "scandal" is a molehill growing into an artificial mountain. It was one office, a few misguided employees. They tried to interpret uninterpretable regulations to make sure that non-profit applications were not actually political organiz.

    So do you also want to eliminate the gasoline tax that built the Interstate highway system..Something that work when our nation was young and not an international player will not work today.

    Are you proposing that we create a national bank, national health insurance, etc!? America does not need any more of these Socialist ideas. Please don't write in such an ignorant way.

    the best elimination of wasted resources is a consumption tax collected by the states with the sales tax for every transaction. no IRS necessary. no special magic math for corporate books. no deductions. flat as it can be.

    The True Fair Tax is applied on every commercial transaction handled by licensed companies. The system is currently operating by every state in the union as a sales tax. It would be 1% additional for the states to collect and forward to the feds.

    fair is a 1% consumption tax collected along with the sales tax on transactions. No exceptions. States collect it and deposit it in several accounts - 1 fed budget, 2 social security, 3 state welfare, 4 progressive profit refund to legal citizens.

    I agree, why should any entity be entitled to YOUR money and labor without your permission!

    everyone will pay 1% based on every commercial transaction processed. this means that when $100 is spent by anyone, they will pay $1. This will then eliminate the differing percentage rates because there will be no deductions.

    No, the problem with it's existence at all...this is not just about the current issues. There is no need for this agency to even exist if we had a flat/fair consumer tax.

    And it does not merely do paperwork...it is an enforcement agency.

    The problem is that we have abdicated personal responsibility to the government. We need to stop all the levels of bureaucracy and end the federal government's reach into things that it is not given the specific power to do by the enumerated powers.

    Recent revelations about the IRS amount to a mosquito bite. I once thought a flat tax was a good idea. You can get rid of the IRS and create the FTS, Federal Tax Service. Stores, credit cards track your spending habits. There will be no privacy.
