How many drug dealers in America?
More than you think.

But the underground economy does exist even though you think it doesn't

We see that the problem isn't necessarily "high earners" and really are the super rich going to be the ones getting paid under the table or making some extra money selling shit on E bay ?

This is why i think a consumption tax is the best choice. Everyone takes home 100% of their income, the government doesn't have to know what's in your bank account and and people who don't pay income taxes now will pay the consumption tax
But the Biden plans are to RAISE consumption taxes...where?
That program — a “National motor vehicle per-mile user fee pilot” — is included in the infrastructure package still before Congress.The idea, he said, is that volunteers with passenger and commercial vehicles across the country would participate in the program that would provide insights into how such a per-mile fee could be collected. Such a tax has been weighed as a potential replacement for the gas tax, he said.
The infrastructure bill includes $125 million to fund pilot programs to test a national vehicle miles traveled fee.
  • National pilot program: This includes $10 million each year from 2022 to 2026 for a national vehicles miles traveled fee pilot program.
  • State and local pilot program: This includes $75 million provided from the federal government to regional, state and local transportation agencies. The breakdown is $15 million provided each year from 2022 to 2026.
In addition... Biden proposes....

IRS would track all bank transactions over $600 under Biden plan; Businesses revolt​


Two plans to have the equivalent of "consumer tax"... on everyone!

Biden wants to keep the income tax.

The income tax is the worst way to generate revenue.

We need to ditch the income tax altogether

Here's where that's impossible. Washington will NEVER replace one tax system with another. Yes, they will gladly add a consumption tax in addition to the income tax, but it will not replace the income tax. Also, Washington will NEVER step back from the surveillance they can do now by knowing the level and sources of your income. The IRS is just too potent a weapon for them to give up.
