Hey, I'm not trying to defend the system here, and have already stated I don't believe we should be taxed at all, but no one forces you to buy gas or any other consumer goods so I don't see how sales tax should count. And while I do agree permitting costs are excessive that is not a yearly expense. I think I've spent a total of $250 in my 40 years on this earth on building permits.Please site your source for the statement that 75% of income is taxed. I just don't see how you get those numbers? Please show me the math.
