Phil your preferred simple system may be the flat tax. There are others including the VAT and a graduated income tax system with zero deductions are two examples.There are two problems from my view point with the current system.#1 The tax system is used for political/social purposes (e.g. home mortgage tax deduction to stimulate home ownership)#2 The rich and/or powerful will get the system altered to further their personal interests. For examples look at any bill passed by Congress - it is called Pork.GordonAtlanta
