I guess the tax system was brought in to pay for the war effort. Whichever war that was.
Every household was expected to pinch in.
The Govt would reach in their pockets and remove a pinch, between thumb and forefinger.
As time went on, the Govt needed more, so the pinch became a fistful.
Soon the Govt expanded and needed more of the hard-earned earnings: so they reached into the pockets and got an armful.
In our times, Govt is fully immersed, bent at the waist, deep in the public feeding trough.

Just another explanation for taxes.

Jay.

It's a fair explanation, but there are too many at the top who pay NO tax because they can afford the sleazy attorneys to fudge the loopholes.

What percent of people in this country do you think cheat on their taxes? Maybe easier to count those who don't cheat.

Everybody, including the first 4, should have skin in the game. A flat 10% across the board tax. No loopholes, deductions, etc. You make only a dollar? Put 10 cents in the bucket. We all pay sales tax that has no loopholes, deductions, etc. Balance the budget against that 10 percent income tax with a cap on spending on total taxes that come in. Easier that way to avoid cheaters and guarantee income.

Sadly, this will never happen.

Steve Forbes for President.

That would discourage investments. There is no good way to allocate appropriate tax share.

Many loopholes and deductions. Some pay less taxes than their refund is? That's a problem. How can you get back more than you paid in? Evil or Very Mad

Will Rogers said it best many, many, years ago: "We've got the best government money can buy".

It is absolutely true that the rich keep getting richer, and everyone else is doing worse (with very few exceptions).

You can get more $ back than paid in due to certain tax credits. The "Child Care Tax Credit" is one that comes to mind right away.
