Which tax is the fairest?

Which tax is the fairest? With people talking about the ‘fair tax’, the taxpayers talk about the ‘unfair’ tax(es) …

At a business conference in Montpelier, Vermont, the state tax commissioner asked the audience which sort of taxation they found fairest.

There was a pause, and then a white-haired man in the back raised his hand. ‘€œThe poll tax,’€ he said.

‘€œBut the poll tax was repealed,’€ replied the commissioner.

‘€œI know,’€ declared the man, ‘€œthat’€™s what I like about it.’€
