Assignment 1: Should the U.S. Convert to a Zero Personal Income Tax?

 

 

 

In a recent news article located at http://www.nbcnews.com/business/economy/heres-where-your-federal-income-tax-dollars-go-f654971 NBC News reported that the U.S. Government spends $3.6 trillion per year to fund Social Security, Medicare, homeland defense and safety, education, transportation, and the interest on debt obligations. In spite of the services and benefits that the government provides, many taxpayers dread paying income taxes but consider them a necessary evil. Consequently, there is much debate about the inequities contained within the tax code, due to tax shelters and tax credits provided to some taxpayers which thereby increase the tax burden on others.

 

 

 

Using the internet, research at least two (2) countries that have a zero income tax rate.

 

 

 

Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you:

 

 

 

 

  • Analyze the way in which the two (2) countries that you have researched provide services and benefits to its citizens without collecting personal income taxes.

 

 

  • For the countries that you have chosen, determine whether or not he U.S. could adopt their taxation model without reducing its total amount of revenue generated by collecting personal income taxes from individuals and business. Justify your response.

 

 

  • Suggest at least three (3) advantages and three (3) disadvantages of the U.S. adopting a zero income tax model. Provide a rationale for your response.

 

 

  • Create a proposal for where the revenue would be derived if the U.S. were to adopt a zero income tax model. In your response, provide specific recommendations concerning the following:

 

 

  • The prosed tax base.

 

 

  • Whether or not tax payers at certain income levels should be exempt from taxations.

 

 

  • The Primary way in which the IRS would calculate the tax rate in order to ensure that the same level of tax revenue would still be collected.

 

 

  • The primary way in which your plan will achieve equity.

 

 

  • Speculate on the primary way in which the federal government could make up any shortfalls if it does not collect its targeted revenue from person income taxes, and ascertain the most significant way in which the U.S. Department of the Treasury, through the IRS, can still adhere to its fiscal and monetary policies. Justify your response.

 

 

  • Use at least four (4) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other Websites do not qualify as academic resources.

 

 

 

 

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

 

 

 

 

  • Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.

 

 

  • Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.

 

 

 

 

The specific course learning outcomes associated with this assignment are:

 

 

 

 

  • Examine the types of taxes imposed at the federal, state, and local levels; the federal tax formula; and the rules for arriving at personal and dependency exemptions.

 

 

  • Analyze the concepts of gross income and distinguish between the economic, accounting, and tax concepts of gross income and strategies to minimize gross income, maximize deductions, and minimize disallowance of deductions.

 

 

  • Use technology and information resources to research issues in federal taxations.

 

 

  • Write clearly and concisely about federal taxation using proper writing mechanics.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Grading for this assignment will be based on answer quality, logic / organization of the paper, and language and writing skills, using the following rubric.
