Income Tax
8% is what we take out of your first $50,000 of income
6% is added on to that rate on income from $50,000 to $300,000 (14%)
7% is added on after your first $300,000 (21%)

Value-Added Sales Tax
5% on items purchased by individuals greater than $1000 plus alcohol, tobacco, and marijuana
3% on items purchased by individuals from $0.01 to $999.99 that could not be classified as:

0% on items that could be purchased with food stamps (groceries)

Corporate Tax
9% flat on corporate revenues

Pass it, smurfs.

This being on the 2012 board would be like 867-5309 winning the Grammy for best RnB song.

Do not fight with one another over my banning.  I've enjoyed the time I have spent with all of you, but the time really has come for me to leave.  It is what I want.

I have to say that a Presidential candidate reciting, "8-6-7-5-3-0-9" during the debates would be much more amusing than Cain's annoying repitition of "NINE. NINE. NINE!"

Income Tax
7% is added on after your first $300,000 (21%)

Why would you want the top tax rate to be only 21%?  Do you realize that is a reduction from the current already destructively low level?

75% Income and capital gains tax above $1,000,000
30% Income and capital gains tax above $50,000
9% Income and capital gains tax from poverty line to $50,000


...not really. It's a joke people. I'm not opebo.

Eh, not much different from tax rates in the 50s-70s. Certainly not dangerous or anything.

It might take in slightly more after I thought more seriously about this (joke) plan for awhile later today.  Our 9s would be both in the same corporate tax.  The sales tax would be significantly less, but still substantial and less regressive.  The income tax of 8-14-21 bracket compared to 9 flat would probably make up for the lower sales tax.
