OmarS. The overall taxes paid would be less.  The only tax paid would be the sales tax.. You would have more money from your check to take home. (of course the sales tax could not be a huge amount)  Then the rich would pay more becuase they buy more and bigger things.  buy a yaht and see what the sales tax would be...lol

I am not totally convinced that a sales tax would work but I like the idea of some kinda of flat tax or sales tax.. Remove IRS and have no loopholes just pay what is needed and no more. 

Another issue is Corporate tax which is a falasy as well, just think if corporations pay tax they just increase the price of the goods or services they offer to pay for the taxes so consumers pay for all taxes in the end anyway.
