I would end the reliance of the state on various fees, taxes, and excise taxes. The fees are far more than the cost of maintaining various records. They have changed into a fee generating mechanism.
The various taxes are not as visible to the tax payer. The excise taxes on tobacco and alcohol are getting high enough to invite smuggling, and an expensive enforcement bureaucracy to counter it.
The real estate tax is a poor way to finance our schools. It also makes life difficult for those who have lost their jobs. It generates pressure to cut education, which we should be improving.
I would vote to rely on the income tax. It is more visible, and people pay more attention to it. The real problem is that the taxes are spent on wasteful things. I address these points in the other parts of my platform. Under my system wasteful items would be cut, taxes would go down, they would just me more visible and easier to watch.
I would vote to increase the rental deduction to $20,000.
