Flat Tax

Business / Taxes / Flat Tax: A flat tax, also known as a regressive tax, applies to everyone at the same rate, as a sales tax does. Advocates of a flat income tax for the United States say it’s simpler and does away with the kinds of tax breaks that tend to favor the wealthy. Opponents say that middle-income taxpayers would carry too large a proportion of the total tax bill.
