Описание на книгата Откъс от книгата За автора

America's federal income tax code is a horror of incomprehensible complexity, corruption, and opportunity-killing provisions. Meanwhile, our competitive position in the world economy is being threatened and undermined by a worldwide wave of tax simplification. Nations -- such as Russia, Hong Kong, Romania, Lithuania, and Slovakia -- who are instituting simple, low-rate Flat Tax systems are providing enormous incentives for economic growth, while America's tax code continues to grow into an out-of-control and burdensome beast. Now, in Flat Tax Revolution: Using a Postcard to Abolish the IRS, Steve Forbes proposes a grassroots revolution to overhaul the current 9 million-word tax code to unshackle the entrepreneurial spirit and creativity of American workers.
In Forbes's carefully thought out plan, there would be one rate -- 17% -- after generous exemptions for adults and children. Under the Flat Tax, for example, a family of four would pay no federal income tax on its first $43,765 of income and would pay only 17 cents on every dollar it earned above that level. There would be no tax on Social Security benefits. No tax on personal savings. No capital gains taxes. And small businesses and family farms wouldn't have to worry about being wiped out by the death tax -- no taxation without respiration. Best of all, there would be no more time-consuming complications -- you could literally fill out your tax form on a single page or even a postcard!
Forbes draws on a quarter century of academic research, and combines that with practical reporting about countries across the planet that have improved their economies by moving to a Flat Tax system. He shows how the Flat Tax that will translate into a tax cut for every American while also adding seven to ten percent to the American economy through faster economic growth. He further shows how this extra economic growth would help finance the transition to a personal social security savings account system, help balance the federal budget, increase philanthropic giving to charities, increase business investment in new machines and new technology so American workers could compete successfully in the world market and, finally, this growth would increase your take home pay, your families retirement savings, and your ability to achieve your dreams of a better future.
