Make Taxes Fair!
“People want just taxes more than they want less taxes.” ~ Will Rogers.
“I am not against taxes. I am for fair taxes.” ~ Gary Bahr.
In Wisconsin, see StopTaxesOnProperty.com and demand that we replace our outrageous Property Tax with fair taxes and The Fair Tax Plan! Save 85% in property taxes and cut the income and sales tax rates to 4% by asking everyone to pay our real estate, income and sales taxes. It is only fair!
Politicians have exempted for their large special-interest campaign contributors half the income from the income tax (State and Federal), half the state sales and services from sales tax, and half the property from local property taxes. Thus, there is not enough revenue to pay for essential services and they have budget short falls, deficits, a poor economy, unfair taxes and outrageous property taxes. All these problems can readily be solved with The Fair Tax Plan.
If everyone paid every tax, tax rates could be cut in half (after paying off State or Federal debts).
Unfair tax exemptions, exclusions, loopholes, special benefits and tax credits hurt everyone who pays taxes. If half the income, sale and real estate in Wisconsin is not taxed, the State denies others equal protection under the law – a violation of the 14th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.
It makes no sense to exempt anyone from a tax. An income tax should apply to all income. The tax rate could be progressive and could fairly allow every taxpayer (rich or poor) a tax deduction of poverty level income. Business and farm expense would remain as tax deductions.
A sales tax should apply to all retail sales, goods and services. Those who buy higher priced items pay more tax.
A real estate tax should apply to real estate owned by everyone, anyone, any organization, any business, non-profit, group or any individual. If it was only a local tax for local real estate related services – as it should be – it would be affordable and fair to all.
If politicians continue to exempt more and more from a tax – those not exempted will pay even a larger portion of the taxes.
THE SOLUTION – THE FAIR TAX PLAN:
The Fair Tax Plan is a blueprint for government reform, tax reform and campaign finance reform for any government level.
A: MAKES TAXES FAIR
Repeal all tax exemption devices, exclusions, special benefits and credits. No one should pay a tax others do not have to pay on their income, sales or property.
No reason justifies exempting or benefiting one citizen, taxpayer, group or class at the expense of another.
An exemption to a tax must cannot be “reasonable” if it does not benefit all taxpayers immediately and directly.
If lawmakers do not adopt reform, special-interests will continue to demand more tax exemptions and fewer and fewer of us will be paying the taxes.
A tax deduction should be allowed of poverty level income for all (rich or poor). Income taxes would begin on income above the poverty level.
B. CONTINUES PRESENT SERVICES
If everyone pays taxes, funds would be available for present services, expanding essential services or to cutting tax rates.
C. ELIMINATES GOVERNMENT FOR SALE
When all taxes and all benefits apply equally to all citizens, there is no benefit for a special-interest to lobby for exemptions or special benefits. Eliminating special-interest legislation means special-interests cannot buy tax exemptions devices or other benefits with large campaign donations. It is the best campaign finance reform as it prevents government-for-sale.
D. MAKES GOVERNMENT EFFICIENT
Government can be made more efficient by assigning specific non-duplicating services to local, county, state or federal government levels; and a tax to pay for each level of government. No duplication in services will save tax dollars or provide more needed services.
Waste occurs when towns, cities, counties, school districts, state and various departments provide police protection, snow removal, social services, nursing care, psychiatric help, etc. By assigning each level of government, agency, and department specific non-duplicating duties and a tax to pay for each level, this Plan will end all duplication and waste in administration and delivery of services and thus further reduce taxes – or more services could be provided by any waste savings.
