Flat Tax sign now

We the undersigned, petition the taxpayers of the United States of America because we deem the current tax structure as undermining the good governance of the people.

The current income tax code is too complicated and consists of many exemptions, loopholes, and targeted breaks. A flat tax would replace this redundant system with a postcard-size form. So instead of spending countless hours or hard earned money to have someone do it for you, you could simply spend a few minutes and be done with it.

Efficiency plays a key role in government and business alike. A flat tax system would allow for a more efficient use of government expenditures and personal income. It has been estimated that a flat tax would reduce compliance costs by 94 percent, saving the taxpayers as much as $180 billion in compliance costs each year. Not to mention, the current tax code requires a substantial amount of paperwork cutting down nearly 300,000 trees each year.

A reformation of our current tax system would also ensure equality among the taxpayers. Our current tax system has a vast amount of deductions, credits, and other special preferences that give uneven treatment to the taxpayers. With a flat tax system it doesnt matter how much money you make or what kind of business you are in, everyone is treated the same and thus taxed the same. Progression is maintained because of the large personal deduction. The personal deduction is based on how much you earn compared to the size of your family.

A flat tax system would not only promote greater economic efficiency, but also increased prosperity. If the taxpayers are taxed less due to personal deductions and are no longer taxed twice on their savings, it will influence more people to save and invest more money. The more money that people have and are willing to invest the more our economy grows. Even if people chose not to invest or save they would still be purchasing goods increasing our gross domestic product.

All in all, the current income tax code is displeasing and disagreeable. Its time for a change that will create simplicity, efficiency, fairness, and prosperity. It is your divine right to stand up for what you believe in and vote for a change that will not only better our lives, but also our future generations lives.
