I am watching 60 minutes. Part of the program is about companies that move a portion of their companies in order to pay less or no tax in the United States.
If every entity, no matter the income, paid 10%, would that bring the companies back to the U.S.? Rich, middle class, poor, small business, large business all paying the same tax. Would that shut all of the mouths? Would that make a positive difference in the taxes collected now? Would the action create jobs in the U.S.?
Just asking. Thank You

Tax Internet Domain Names

Virtually the entire practical namespace for Internet domain names is locked up because the cost of owning such names is so low. If these names were subject to significant taxation ($100/year?) then these names would begin to free up for reuse (and their return to the free name pool should also be guaranteed by legislation).

This measure would also have the effect of greatly increasing the quality of information on the Internet, because only those with a somewhat serious commitment to their site would pay the tax to maintain the domain name.

I personally own several domain names, and this tax would be one that I would willingly pay simply because it helps to weed out those who are serious about their venture from those who are not.

And, for those who cannot pay this tax, they can still place their content with the larger aggregators – then just wouldn’t have a dedicated Internet domain name.

Eliminate E-Mail Spam while Generating Revenue

Have the US Post Office begin selling/issuing various classes of digital certificates that are required for use with a new, secure email system. If someone is found to use such a certificate for an unauthorized purpose then it could be revoked, and it would instantly no longer be able to send emails.

End users would then be able to block or filter emails by sender, class of email, size of email, etc.

The new “professional” email protocol would be “smarter” than the current email protocol in that, if an email did not meet the recipient’s criteria, it would never even consume Internet bandwidth (another money-saver).

The analog between this new class of email and the old standard would be similar to amateur vs. CB radio.

Revenue would be generated through sales of the digital certificates (which would have to be periodically renewed). The Postal Service would be energized with a new, modern purpose (and, since providing a person/business with a digital certificate should require verifying their identity in person, the USPS infrastructure would be critical), and emailers throughout the world would be supportive because email SPAM would have become a thing of the past.

Tax Unhealthy Foods

I think the new healthcare plan should be paid for by taxing ALL items that cause health care problems, which includes alcohol and tabacco, of course, but ALSO: soda pop, potato chips (and other assorted “junk” food), fast & fried foods such as french fries, candy, ice cream, cookies. If the government added as little as 10 cents levy on small bags of junk food and cans of soda, or as much as $5 on alcohol and tobacco, the money would be there for healthcare.

Sin Tax

If the government wants to raise some serious money without increasing personal tax, then they should consider a Sin Tax on booze & tobacco. These two whims are a strain on the health care system and are so out-dated. If cigarettes went from $3 to $10, people would have a serious incentive to quit. And booze is cheaper than food which is ridiculous, and leads to DUI and family abuse.

No income = no tax

So, within a short time, no one will be making an income, EXCEPT government workers, and so THEY will be the only ones liable for the income tax. Simple math indicates that one cannot tax them at a rate sufficient to raise the revenue to PAY those same workers. Better drop the income tax and do that national sales tax….. Historical note: prior to the income tax, the United States Government ran SURPLUSSES year after year.

Let people use their IRA money without tax to allow them to use this money for a down payment on home or car, home repairs or what ever they need to use it for. Just for a couple of years.
