Back in the 1760’s, 70’s, and 80’s The King of England taxed the populace (that’s us) unfairly with fees on specific groups and products.
Here’s an updated version for 2014/2015 from the King in Washington D.C.
To Wit: Let us create a new way to collect our revenues by eliminating benefits the populace have long enjoyed. We will take them away by raising the qualified deduction so high that only the rich could apply them to their tax forms. These would include donations to places of worship, helping the poor, feeding the hungry and clothing the naked. This action would increase our revenues and reduce the claims against it. We will also the increase the burden of complying by requiring needed assistance in preparing proper reporting forms. Let this system be in effect in all the states.
