A National SALES based tax system. This is similar to those already found in the State Sales Tax. This is different than a FLAT Tax which is still income based. Replacing Income with Sales would get rid of the Internal Revenue Code which is the basis of how the rich avoid or severely reduce their tax contribution. The IRS could be severely reduced in size, and the TAX court would also find little to do. Most any of the arguments against the Sales Tax have already been answered by the State Sales Tax. Most of the middle class are wage earners, while the rich make their fortune in Stocks.
