    Re: State of the Union Address

    Nah we are going about this all wrong. Sangha how much of a business' operation should go to business and how much to government? Please be specific on the percentage.

    Second question, in the area of accounting, what is another name for cash gained through equity or income? Oh look, its capital.

    So, since I dont know anything explain it.

    But I do approve of corps getting taxes like individual entities because the status it holds provides a large number of benefits to the owners. If it were a Partnership, then I'd be staunchly against it being hit twice with the same tax. That wouldn't be fair at all.
    You realize your bud Sangha there is arguing exactly that, right?

    One mIllion taxed at 35% leaves 650K 650K taxed at 40% (260K) leaves 390K so you approve of a net tax of 61% on that money

    Here's a prime example of someone not understand the legal entity thing. The corp isn't taxed twice. It's taxed once and the owners are taxed once. If they don't want this to be, go for a Partnership.
    A man without fear is a fool, a man that succumbs to his fear is a coward and a brave man acknowledges fear yet presses on.

    please explain, but I don't understand how you've come to that conclusion.

    ...Partnerships are taxed the same way. Once when they make it and once when they collect it for use from the business.

    Sangha, please reply to the percentage of a business' money that a government should take, Im curious as to your answer and rationale. Same for you Tettsuo, how much do you think is enough? And why?

    And here is someone not getting the crux of the issue.

    The activity that produced the profit is being taxed multiple times, creating inefficiency.

    If you want to do this, why not just raise the effective rate and tax once, producing the same revenue stream with less overhead and compliance enforcement?

    Or was that just another post of yours that you made even though you don't believe what you said?
    While we can argue the semantics you said:

    Then:

    Which would infer that one is not entitled to any profits based on laws against it.
