Its ridiculous the stuff people have to do to file a tax return. We need to stop this nonsense and have a flat tax based on income with FEW DEDUCTIONS. Id like to see these rates:

$0-20,000 5%
$20001-45,000 10%
$45001-75000 15%
$75001-100,000 20%
$100,000-150,000 25%
over 150,000 35%

plus 40% on capital gains

We also need to abolish sales tax on groceries, while having a national sales tax on luxuries like cars over 30 grand, boats, campers, second homes, etc.
no way

It will never happen, too many bureaucrats would lose jobs if the IRS had common sense and did things simple.

I am from Pa and we already have this in place. No sales tax on food or cloths. Any private sale of a car is tax free under 15,000 and 10,000 on a car lot. Richmond has tax free food and cloths. Local government can pass tax laws.
flat across the board
