The IRS has been collecting your tax dollars since 1862. They started taxation back then to support the American Civil War. The rate was a flat 3 percent. Wow!
Today the IRS is collecting over $2.4 trillion of your hard-earned wages from 234 million taxpayers who filed, of which many don't pay a dime.
Billions of these dollars are being flushed down the sewer by our corrupt government. The IRS has over 90,000 employees with a budget of over $11.2 billion per year. They have lost emails, yet to be accounted for, and now they are losing 100,000-plus Social Security numbers to who knows. The IRS needs to be dissolved now!
Not one presidential candidate has come forth and spoke of the corruption in the IRS.
Never miss a local story.
This country needs a flat tax. That's right, a flat tax. No deductions! No IRS! Cut $11.2 billion from the budget. The flat tax could start at 7 percent for every individual, corporation, business and, yes, even our political leaders. Give your comments.
