said by amarryat:Exactly. The whole tax structure is set up to fool as many people as possible, so that they don't realize the extent that the government is dominating the economy thru taxes that are often hidden from the citizens.
Instead of taxing corporations, the govt. ought to tax us directly. Either way, we're going to pay. Charging Verizon a property tax on poles will be reflected by a rate increase.
The bottom line is that those in govt. want more money, and are constantly dreaming up ways to fool all of us into paying more. A tax on a corporation is a tax on all of us.
