I agree!! However there would still need to be a compliance office to make
sure the sales tax collected is actually remitted to the govt.
Remember that tax laws come from Congress & are often designed to benefit a
certain business (oil, for instance) or a certain group of people. The
rich may pay a lot of income taxes but many are in a position to set their
own salaries which are “grossed up” so they end up with what they actually
want to earn. These are the people who also control wages for everyone
else. Being underpaid is really paying a tax if you think about it.
