"do you think we will all (including the government) be better off if their was no capital gain tax."


I can't really comment about tax policy - but I
can say that we would all be better off if the
people who write the IRS procedures were trained
to use straight-forward language.
Every time I try to follow the IRS capital gains
form instructions I end up having to read and
re-read and re-read - and then try to do the
declarations and calculations on a side-sheet of
paper once or twice to see if what I understand of
the intent matches the results.

The IRS forms are a nightmare.
