You are grumbling, BUT WHAT IS YOUR PROPOSAL?KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid). Firs $20k you make (from any and all sources), tax free. Everything else above that 20%. No write offs, no deductions. Would fit on a postcard. Why should I get to write off a % charitable donation, mortgage interest, IRA contribution, etc.? I can either afford a house or I can't. Its a good cause I want to support or it isn't. I save for retirement/rainy day or I work till I'm dead. I AM PERSONALLY RESPONSIBLE FOR MY OUTCOME, not society nor Uncle Sam. Something similar could be done for businesses.The problem is, you get a bunch of jackwagons in Congress fighting/defining what is income. And in a few years you have 73,000+ pages of tax code.JLC
