Yes, but strictly speaking, no church, synagog, mosque or ashram would be taxed. No company would be taxed. No person would be taxed. Only purchases would be taxed, the taxes would fall evenly and controllably on the rich, the poor, the believer, the atheist, and most importantly on the state itself.
Everyone who benefits from the government would have skin in the game to keep taxation low.
The state itself would feel the bite of its own taxes at every level and in every department’s budget as well.
No system of taxation will ever be perfect, but I think this might be worth a try as the ONLY form of national taxation within US boarders.
I agree with the principle of the consumption tax and would like to see it replace our insane complex taxation system.
