Taxes are an age old argument that everyone has an opinion on. We are all equal and should share an equal responsibility. I flat percentage across the board is the only fair method of taxation. No deductions or add-ons. This method would reduce the amount of overall taxes because we could reduce the cost of the government tax office greatly. The depart would be much smaller, just enough for processing the taxes collected. Taxes to be taken out at paycheck time, and no need to do a year end tax processing since everyone already paid the flat percentage amount based on what you earned. No taxes on savings accounts or the like, just one time based on your paycheck. Businesses would be the same, based on their profit. Simple, clean, and fair.
