Abolish Income Taxes !!!!!

Abolish Income Taxes

By Robert M. Barber, Philoeconopolist

Currit tempus contra desides et sui juris contemptores

To get rid of income taxes join the Philoeconopolist Party and elect 290 new members to the U.S. House of Representatives and elect 67 new members to the U.S. Senate to pass new tax legislation with a required 2/3rds vote in both the House and the Senate. We can do it !!!

THE BARBER PLAN

The only way Congress will Abolish Income Taxes is for the replacement taxation system to be Revenue-Neutral. Revenue-Neutral means that the tax system that replaces the income tax must generate the same amount of tax revenues that the income tax generates. The Philoeconopolist Party has a plan that provides a revenue-neutral Fee On Transfers and/or Apportioned PPR tax instead of a Flat Tax or National Retail Sales Tax (NRST). Flat Tax requires you to file a tax return. The NRST requires you to file a tax return if you claim deductions. No tax return or deductions or exemptions are needed with Fee On Transfers or Apportioned PPR. ***************************************************************** I propose to replace the present income tax system our federal government uses with two simple tax methods,

1) a small fee on the money which the Federal Reserve Bank handles for the federal government called the "Fee On Transfers" tax, and a $.25 per hundred fee on bank check writing for individuals and a $.05 per hunderd fee on bank check writing and funds transfers for businesses.

and/or

2) *** OPTIONAL *** a small purchase percentage rate of 1% to 15% tax on most goods and services, a smaller tax on the least product price, and a higher tax on luxury items, to be collected from all States according to the population in each State, known as "Apportioned PPR".

The two simple taxes are discussed in "The Barber Plan":

Part A - Fee on Transfers

A1. One half of one percent is collected on the FRB's daily total of funds and securities transfers.

A2. One half of one percent is collected on ALL monetary transfers except on loans from the government (not including loans from Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs). GSEs pay the fees.

A3. One half of one percent is collected on ALL State's daily Gaming and Lottery monies wagered.

and/or

Part B - Check writing fee

B1. $.25 per hundred fee on bank check writing for individuals and a $.05 per hunderd fee on bank check writing for businesses.

Part A and/or B should do it. Or at least half of the budget. If not, then we implement Part C.

Part C - Apportioned PPR

C1. The federal government determines fiscal budgeted tax requirements.

C2. People and businesses give voluntarily to the State government anonymously to reduce apportioned tax requirement to the several States.

Since there will be no federal income taxation, this step will offer the underground economy, individuals and businesses to contribute as much as they desire to the State to reduce the federal tax liability to the State.

C3. The federal tax liability balance is apportioned among the several States.

What does Apportioned mean? Both the Constitution for the united States Of America and The Federalist Papers discuss apportionment concerning taxation. Apportionment under The Barber Plan means that the balance of revenues needed after Social Security, Unemployment Insurance, Payroll Taxes and donations have been subtracted from the federal tax requirement until 2004, are allocated to each State according to population. After 2004, apportionment under The Barber Plan means that the balance of revenues needed after donations have been subtracted from the federal tax requirement, are allocated to each State according to population.

Phase I - Abolish Federal Income Taxes Individual and Corporate (1999)

Phase II - Abolish Unemployment and Payroll Taxes(2001)

Phase III - Abolish Social Security Taxes (2003)

C4. A Purchase Percentage Rate (PPR) is collected at the State level.

What is PPR ? PPR is Purchase Percentage Rate. The PPR may be variable and change at a moments notice. The PPR is taxed on price and not on the total sale as is currently being done with sales taxes. The PPR tax is collected until a State has meet the allocated apportioned amount of revenue needed from that State. The federal government and States may collect SURPLUS monies using the PPR tax method.

$.01 - $3 0 $3.01 - $10 1 $10.01 - $25 2 $25.01 - $50 3 $50.01 - $100 4 $100.01 - $250 5 $250.01 - $5,000 6 $5,000.01 - $10,000 7 $10,000.01 - $20,000 8 $20,000.01 - $30,000 9 $30,000.01 - $40,000 10 $40,000.01 - $50,000 11 $50,000.01 - $100,000 12 $100,000.01 - 500,000 13 $500,000.01 - 1,000,000 14 $1,000,000.01 and over 15

Don't be misled by the "media" or any "think tank" into making you think that The Barber Plan won't work. The Barber Plan will work and the government knows it! The Barber Plan is fair and will help our Country get out of the big economic mess it is currently in.
