Let’s get rid of federal income tax

Isn’t it time to replace the IRS with a system of no federal income tax?

To support the budget of the federal government, a national sales tax would be a great replacement for our present system and could be run by the Treasury Department.

No more benefit and retirement programs for IRS employees. What a savings for the American people, who would be able to keep their hard-earned dollars.

The sales tax percentage would be determined by the total of each year’s federal budget; some years more than others.

For the very poor, special credit benefits would apply on their payments.

I wholeheartedly believe that this new sales tax program would be so much better than our present income tax system — and guess what: No more IRS scandals.
