“A government has become corrupt when they impose any tax, or any semblance thereof, without the expressed consent of the People. From corruption is bred tyranny and oppression.”
– Dean A. Beers
Abolish the IRS and return taxation to the states
In my book, I expand the concept of taxation to include jurisdictions of the states and federal governments. In short, the federal government, beyond income tax, has no authority - except interpretation of the commerce clause - to tax within the states. As an example, federal fuel taxes. When you go to the pump an average of forty cents is added to the price of gas, with most of that being federal taxes.
I am opposed to any federal taxation of any goods and services within the states. The only reason the states allow this is to get federal funding for programs - schools, highways, etc. This is redistribution of state monies. The federal government acts as a filter, keeping a percentage of the funds to fund pet projects and bloated departments (such as the Department of Education). If a state or entity within does not comply with a federal 'optional' regulation - such as a federal holiday or reducing the DUI limit - the federal government will withhold state funds until 'voluntary' compliance.
Abolish the IRS - and the federal taxation of goods and services within the states.

This week it was announced that the Chairmen of the congressional tax committees, Rep. Dave Camp (R., Mich.), chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, and Sen. Max Baucus (D., Mont.), chairman of the Senate Finance Committee, have launched taxreform.gov and joined forces to move the campaign to overhaul the tax system online. Your input is needed, I have sent the below information and links.
There are simple foundations to a real solution for income tax and reform.
• Any adjustments to the tax rate must be approved in a manner similar to a Constitutional amendment – the state legislatures have an up or down vote and a super majority of two-thirds of the states affirming and sending to Congress as the Peoples’ consent and final vote. A super of two-thirds in both houses of Congress would also be required. Introduction of a tax adjustment must be introduced to the states by April 01st and concluded by September 30th. Any inaction or unconcluded action after that time the proposal is expired and void forever;
• All income is taxed at 10% on all derived income from business ventures and employment;
• No post-income activities are taxed, to include savings, retirement, investments and gains on personal and business holdings;
• Retirement, disability and public assistance are not taxed;
• Deductions would include all consumer and business loan interest, non-elective medical and personal care (eye, dental, etc.), education, charitable donations, medical accounts, retirement accounts, secondary education accounts, and income producing expenses and losses;
• No deductions for marital status, children or other personal lifestyle decisions;
• Exemptions for state and federally recognized non-profits business;
• Federal taxes of any form on all sales, goods, services and other in-state taxes all prohibited;
• Withholding is at 10% of the gross wage, salary or compensation paid;
• Personal assets of a primary residence, single personal vehicle, retirement accounts and up to six months of gross income are exempt from post-adjudication seizure for any non-payment of taxes or any civil or criminal penalties or judgments;
• Penalties can only be assessed for the aggregate late filing and payment or non-payment at 10% per occurrence and annum;
• Arrears qualify for installments termed at ten years and accrued interest equal to the federal prime interest rate, with no additional accruing penalties.
Public Assistance Income
• Total public assistance (housing, food, medical, unemployment, etc.) cannot exceed the equivalent of 80% of the net median poverty level income of the state of residence;
• Any aggregate public assistance overpayments are taxed as income and the difference is payable to the overpaying program/s under the terms similar to the income tax penalty otherwise described in this work;
• Earned income must be obtained and will reduce the aggregate of public assistance accordingly, earned income is taxed, and assistance reduced by 80% of the gross income differential (the converse may also apply for the loss of income).
