Tax Reform

Taxation & Tax Reform of the IRS in America

Our Position On Tax Reform

We firmly believe that our existing tax code system, administered by the Internal Revenue Services (IRS), has become overly complex, unjust and outlived its effectiveness. What was once created as a taxing authority to simply raise the necessary funds needed by our government to prosecute the wars in which we were engaged and run our small government, has grown into a 'Green Monster' of bureaucracy. It has now been abused by our government to the point where it now threatens the financial stability and prosperity of all Americans.

Our lawmakers, over the years since, have sought to bastardize the tax code to the point that its complexity and loopholes have made it impossible for Americans to comply without fear of fines, penalties, prosecution and even imprisonment. It has further promulgated and encouraged fraudulent filings by individuals or the shifting of revenues and income to offshore enterprises and companies by business. The complexity of the tax code further allows government to distort the so-called equality of taxation or place unfair taxation or penalties on business and individuals for achieving the American dream of success. This must stop! We must provide a simple common sense approach and system that is fair, equal and at a extremely lower taxation rate for all American wage earners.

That is why the American Reform Party, under its platform, will propose the downsizing of the IRS and a simplified reform of the existing Federal Tax Code. We will put forth a bill in which the existing complex tax code will be replaced with one of the following tax structures at tax rates that will put more money back in the hands of business, States and most importantly, the American family.

1.) A straight forward flat tax on all individual wage earners and business with increases, based on a Federal Budget, capped and tied to a national index.

2.) A graduated flat tax on all individual wage earners and business with increases, based on a Federal Budget, capped and tied to a national index

3.) A National Sales Tax on all goods and products sold or exported.

In any of the above scenarios the tax rate would be significantly lower the the current IRS tax code. Of course we will need our government to put into place a balanced budget proposal which will fit within the newly created tax revenue.

DescriptionHow do you become the owner of the largest furniture retail company in history?  Two words, work ethic. Those words aptly describe Jim “Mack” McIngvale, founder and owner of a sprawling retail complex in Houston known as Gallery Furniture. McIngvale’s vast acreage of furniture for every family ranks as the sales-per-square foot leader for any furniture store in the United States. Upon entering the store, his employees appear as ethnically diverse as his variety of styles of furniture. …

In answer to the question, 'Do you have any dependents?',
I listed...... '12 million illegal immigrants, 10 million crack heads, 20 million unemployed bastards too lazy to work, the entire cast of The Jerry Springer Show, 140,000 people in 133 penal establishments in California, 2 million leftovers from Katrina, half of Mexico, all of the House of Representatives, most of the Senate, and Michelle Obama’s trip to visit relatives in Africa.

Apparently, this wasn't an acceptable answer

Our President said he is bringing back home 100,000 troops and he is going to pay each employer who higher them a big tax credit. This sounds good , but at what expense to the people that are replaced to make room for the troops who get the jobs? An other 100,000 let go workers go on unemployment lines, most of those that are going to be let go are family bread winners.

Why not entice our manufactures that shipped our jobs over sees to come back home to help out? Its now time to get angry and insist on help…

If you're like me, then you too have had it with all the party politics being played out in Washington over government spending and National Debt that is jeopardizing the National Security, freedoms and general welfare of all Americans.

The financial crisis looming big over our country was created by both parties and its simplistic resolution are of a nonpartisan nature. Their is NO place in the process for playing party politics or posturing for who goes first let the other party make the mistake.  The fact is that this crisis impacts on all Americans not a particular…

Neither the Congress, the Executive Branch nor the Justice Branch of the Government of the United States of America Shall have the authority to set, change or manipulate the tax kind and rate or amount collected from the people.  THAT AUTHORITY BELONGS TO THE PEOPLE and this authority SHALL NOT BE CHANGED OR DIMINISHED.  The people may, in a special election limited to the single purpose of fixing the taxes in the USA, by a 75% majority of the registered voters, change the tax laws. 

There shall be only one simple tax.  THIS SHALL BE A "FINAL SALE CONSUMER TAX"…
