Assignment 1 Should the U.S. Convert to a Zero Personal Income Tax?

Due Week 7 and worth 180 points

In 2017, Motley Fool reported at… that the U.S. Government spends about $2.7 trillion for various kinds of social insurance (Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare, unemployment compensation, veterans benefits, and the like). Another $604 billion, or 15.3% of total spending, went for national defense; net interest payments on government debt were about $240 billion, or 6.1%. Education aid and related social services were about $114 billion, or less than 3% of all federal spending.In spite of the services and benefits that the government provides, many taxpayers dread paying income taxes but consider them a necessary evil. Consequently, there is much debate about the inequities contained within the tax code, due to tax shelters and tax credits provided to some taxpayers (which thereby increase the tax burden on others).

Using the Internet or Strayer Library, research one (1) country that has a zero income tax rate.

Write a four to five (4-5) page paper in which you do the following:

Analyze the way in which the country you have researched provides services and benefits to its citizens without collecting personal income taxes.

For the country that you have chosen, determine whether the U.S. could adopt their taxation model without reducing its total amount of revenue (as currently generated by collecting income taxes from individuals and businesses). Justify your response.

Suggest at least two (2) advantages and two(2) disadvantages of the U.S. adopting a zero income tax model. Provide a rationale for your responses.

Speculate on the primary way in which the federal government could make up any shortfalls if it does not collect its targeted revenue from personal income taxes. Ascertain the most significant way in which the U.S. Department of the Treasury, through the IRS, can still adhere to its fiscal and monetary policies. Justify your responses.

Use at least three (3) quality academic resources in this assignment. Note: Wikipedia and other websites do not quality as academic resources.

Your assignment must follow these formatting requirements:

Be typed, double spaced, using Times New Roman font (size 12), with one-inch margins on all sides; citations and references must follow APA or school-specific format. Check with your professor for any additional instructions.

Include a cover page containing the title of the assignment, the student’s name, the professor’s name, the course title, and the date. The cover page and the reference page are not included in the required assignment page length.
