Cupcake15-I agree that a consumption tax like a national sales tax would be fair. I also like the idea of the flat tax which would make all Americans pay the same percentage of tax.
This would eliminate the tax on social security earnings as well as the federal tax table. There would be no need for income tax estimator because there would be no IRS and everyone would know exactly what they would owe in taxes.
I prefer a consumption tax vs., and income tax, but I doubt that congress will make any changes to the tax code anytime soon.
