A form of "hidden national sales tax" that in my opinion can only be described as a politicians dream, that would be subject to manipulation at the "taxmaster's" and or the "politicians" will is now being proposed by some elected officials. It is a "value added tax" that is embeded into everything we purchase. At each step of the manufacturing process it is a cost that is passed on to the next phase. The logger sells to the mill, he pays a tax on the added value of forest products that now have enhanced value, the mill pays tax on the enhanced value they added by turning the logs into lumber, the cabinet maker pays tax on the value he added by turning the lumber into cabinets, it goes on through wholesalers, retailers and so on.
The consumer pays the embeded taxes without knowing that he has been taxed at every step of the process. Therefore the " value added tax' is a "national sales tax" by another name, and, it is off of peoples radar, hidden. Under the proposed system it would be a new tax, the "IRS" would logically expand to handle it, and, the "income tax" would remain. Imagine, a twenty or twenty-five percent "hidden sales tax" on top of the "IRS" burden which takes about 2.5 trillion out of our economy each year. Is there a viable honest and open alternative? In my humble opinion, yes, read the following.
The "Fairtax" a proposel that has been introduced into Gongress for some time now is not only a viable option, but, a common sense option to provde the needed revinue for government to operate as well. Are taxes necessary? Of course they are. "Taxes are the price we pay for a civilized society" this "IRS slogan" is correct, however it was taken from a court decision aginst them.
The proposed "Fairtax national sales tax" is now being proposed and already has a substantial following of politicains and average American citizens alike. The manner in which The "Fairtax" is structured prevents a regressive taxation aspect by untaxing the necessities of life for all. The "Fairtax" would keep the "tax system" open to the light of day and so would have protection from manipulation and abuse in the future.
