A novel tax reform: Tithing to the IRS

January 30, 2012

Since we're talking about the meaning of fairness in taxation, how about a fixed, flat rate? This would be akin to the biblical tithe, where God asks a fixed, flat 10 percent a year, year in and year out, no exemptions, no exceptions, no deductions.

If the flock has a good year, then God has a good year, and vice versa. Whether one is 8 or 80 years old, everyone can understand it, and no one needs an accountant to figure it out.

If it's good enough for God, it ought to be good enough for Caesar.

Dave Reich, Perry Hall
