Tax Reform Poll

As the new Congress prepares for their next session, one of the items on their agenda, will be tax reform. We ask our readers:

"What kind of tax reform will serve all Americans best?"

Sorry. Poll closed on January 15, 2007 at 6:00PM CST.
See the results of this poll <here>.

Watch for our follow-up to this poll, in a day or two. It will only include only the top three ranking options from this poll, the Fair Tax, the Flat Tax and taxing the states.

The current progressive (multi-rate) tax system is fine, as it is. Don't tinker with it.
Keep the current progressive (multi-rate) system, but lower taxes across the board.
Keep the current progressive (multi-rate) system, but raise taxes across the board.
Keep the current progressive (multi-rate) system, but adjust some rates up and some rates down, making it more or less progressive.
Change the progressive income tax into a single-rate income tax (often referred to as the Flat Tax).
Replace the progressive income tax and Social Security tax with a single-rate national retail sales tax (often referred to as the Fair Tax), collected only at the point of final retail sale of new products, which would also entail the elimination of the IRS.
Replace the progressive income tax with a European style VAT (Value Added Tax), collected at all points along the distribution channel, including final retail sale.
Replace the progressive income tax with increased duties and tariffs.
The federal government should not tax individuals, but rather only tax the states, by apportionment. It would then become the responsibility of each state to collect enough taxes from their citizens, in whatever manner each state should choose, to pay the federal tax bill.
Some combination of the above.
Eliminate all federal taxes. Taxes should be voluntary.
Other unspecified changes.

SORRY, POLL CLOSED.
