An Uncivil Income Tax System

If we are "all created equal" than no matter how much someone earn's they should pay the same percentage. If everyone just gave 10% to feds and 3% to their state with no mumbo-jumbo tax deductions, credits, so on, we'd all be better off. I hate this Robin Hood-winked method of taxation. Earned Income Credit is one of the worst examples. Those who get it usually are already receiving other assistance and are capable of receiving grants for schooling if they would just be willing to improve themselves. I went through hard times as a single mother of two children both with handicaps and I've made a success of myself and my kids through hard work, school (which I paid for) and AMBITION. Flat tax is the only real answer.

Each year in the United States, an estimated 6.1 billion hours are spent complying with the federal tax code. I'm pretty sure at least half of those hours are spent by me.

With less than two weeks remaining before this year's tax returns are due, I've barely made a dent in my stack of forms, receipts, and instructions. Each year the prospect of doing my taxes looms more daunting and dismal than the year before. Each year I wonder where I'll find the time, never mind the patience, to get it done. Each year's tax ordeal seems to require more...
