Today is the due date for people to file their federal income taxes. These are taxes levied by the federal (national) government on the amount of money a person earns each year. Our federal income tax is said to be a progressive tax, meaning the more money you make, the higher a percent of tax you pay. The current tax rates are 0%, 10%, 15%, 25%, 28%, 33%, and the highest is 35%.
Your Question (Two Parts):
1) Do you believe the government has the right to tax a persons income (the money they earn)? Why or why not?
2) Do you believe that a person should be taxed more for making more money? Why or why not?
