OK, But get and read "The Fair Tax" for better, easier to read info on this subject
on July 28, 2013
This book dispels a lot of misconceptions. In fact, the rich DO pay taxes.... but many of them do escape them. The reality is that the current system (the 75,000+ page tax code) is completely unfair, and serves the politicians, lobbyists and those that employ them. It demonstrates some of the problems with the current income tax, and recommends "The Fair Tax" as a solution - - which makes a lot of sense.
I enjoyed reading most of this book, but it did get a little tiresome at times. Lots of detailed data. The book does correctly point out that there is a proposed tax system that IS fair, that WILL INSURE that everyone pays their fair share of federal taxes, will NOT tax the poor, and will tax those in the middle fairly, and the rich heavily, but not unfairly. It's called "The Fair Tax," and I highly recommend getting the book:
THE FAIR TAX by Neil Boortz and read it before buying this book. It has a better overall discussion about the Income Tax and The Fair Tax (a proposed national sales tax). Everyone should get and read that book.
