Who benefits from the income tax system? The overwhelming majority of the public simply does not. Boiled down to its basics, it’s a matter of WHO decides where your money goes: you, or politicians (and special interests) who take your money from you?
If your money were not involuntarily being taken via the income tax system, YOU would be keeping it and deciding where it would be spent. When it’s taken from you, politicians decide where it goes (much to pet projects, huge amounts wasted, and some not even accounted for).
Who do you think is better qualified to decide where your money goes — you, or federal politicians?
Special interests also greatly benefit from an income tax system.
