Mark Hinkle so now you want zero taxes on companies but taxing people? So how about the guy that works on his own? You are making him much less able to compete with companies. My blog http://ehabheikal.net

Every expense every profitable business pays has to come from consumers, stock holders, or employees. Typically it comes from customers. Thus, businesses don’t pay taxes, they just collect them from their customers and pass it onto the government. Every business tax is just a hidden tax on the consumer.

Thus, business can’t really pay taxes. For transparency reasons, there should be no taxes on businesses or corporations.

The only “fair” tax is no tax at all.
