I love any idea that eliminates the IRS! Also, the reason I like this is everyone pays, no one has a free ride any longer. Everyone needs toilet tissue, groceries, etc.. Those who are rich will buy more and pay more. Those who have less buys less so it is proportional. This reaches the underground economy that never pays taxes. However, the income tax must be dead and buried. The IRS must be dead and buried. The starting suggested percentage is too high.
