Nobody wants to give their money away, especially if they worked to earn it. If we tax income, we are basically discouraging people from earning money.
I'm not sure how practical it is, however, to not tax income under this system. Where would schools, roads, etc., etc. receive their funding? We would need a big revamping of our current system to eliminate income tax.
Through a Macroeconomics class, I deduced that a system that taxes highly is a very rigid in movement and does not allow for long-term growth unless the tax money is reinvested in favor of the taxpayers. AKA - taxes going to war efforts do not allow for maximum economic growth.
I'm not arguing the merits or demerits of a war. I can imagine someone will say that war is an investment. The truth is, it isn't an investment in the traditional sense.
Back to the question, though. If somebody lived in a town which received no federal funding, they should not need to pay income tax. However, they were most likely educated in a public school that did...
...I guess I'm not sure. Long-winded post for such a basic answer, huh?
"All mankind is of one author, and is one volume; when one man dies, one chapter is not torn out of the book, but translated into a better language...No man is an island, entire of itself...any man's death diminishes me, because I am involved in mankind; and therefore never send to know for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." - John Donne
Every citizen should have to pay income taxes. I believe in lower taxes for the poor and struggling, but everyone still should have to pay. Personally, I don't think the top earners should have to pay a higher percentage, it's not right.
Income should never even be taxed!
