Letter: What about an income tax?
Has there ever been a study done to determine if the property tax could be replaced by an income tax? Most of our taxes are regressive: They hit the middle- and lower-income people the most. If we had an income tax that replaced the majority of the property tax, what would the numbers look like?
Could it be just a percentage of the federal tax so we would not have to create a bureaucracy to collect it?
I find the casino revenue as well as the other “sin” taxes to be irresponsible. We need to be self-sufficient and not rely on the addictions of our neighbors to pay our way.
If there is such a study, where might I find that information?
