8. It does none of the things "you" claim/listed - accountants &attorneys
continue to make the same money from tax questions.

What is income? Trust vs offshore vs "controlled", etc PLUS what is US INCOME? - the huge loophole that allows US corporations to make tons while claiming a loss on US activity.

What income is taxed? - Savings "incentives" via lower tax for a given "account"?

Gifts to the rich in not taxing capital gains or some portion of them.

Who gets a Carry-back/carry-forward so as to smooth tax for various items- everyone, no-one, only corporations?

If the rate is flat do we have tax credits that favor the middle class, or tax deductions - a method that favors the rich. The Home Loan interest "deduction" will be in any "flat tax"

Do we have large per person and per return tax credits that must be with a higher flat rate (so as to develope the total dollar tax needed) that favors the middle class, or do we have low or no per person and per return "deductions" with a low flat rate that favors the rich?
