Yes, but...

... Don't forget that the income tax would be gone, hence resulting in a 20%-30% increase in your income (depending on the tax rate). So in the end from the final cost standpoint it probably wouldn't change much. But what I like about it is that the IRS and their intrusive ways would be gone.
