Comment: I am an individual:

I support a graduated flat tax for everyone except the poor. They should
have a lower flat tax. People who earn over $250,000 a year should pay more.
I also would be in favor of a VAT.
There should be NO Deductions, period.
I AM AGAINST child credits, deductions and allowances. This is totally
UNFAIR to childless people. If you must give a deduction, do it for the 1st
child, less money for the second, nothing for the third or more.
Again: Please remove the child allowance. It is nothing more than free money
or a bribe to people who should shoulder the financial responsibility and
joys of parenthood themselves. I already give them money for thier childs
schooling in other state taxes.

Thank you,
Dean Geules
