No Taxation without Representation
I've been meaning to create a tax adjustment calculator. I started with the 2009 IRS summary data here and then created a "change the tax rate" scenario.
As I type this, I remain firmly neutral to this issue. However, it is interesting to note that even the smallest changes in tax percentage points add up to significant overall changes. Ask yourself: what can 1 billion dollars provide if handled properly by the US government? How about a 100 billion?
Download the workbook to pick away at it, change it, improve it, or scoff at it. It is by no means perfect. Just an idea that I wanted to mess around with. The last tab contains more references. Each tab has a quick comment on what's going on.
