Tax Rates – The Laffer Curve

Pay attention to the Romer & Romer Study.

He does make a valid point.

It doesn’t matter what kind of business you operate or if you’re just an employee for a company… Under the progressive tax system, the more money that you make, the higher tax bracket you’ll be put in and more taxes you’ll pay out of your own pocket.

Obviously, the higher tax bracket you start being into, you find ways to lower your taxes or you just work less.

This adds on to what one of John Stossel’s videos mentioned, the higher the taxes there is imposed – the wealthy or big businesses making big bucks find ways to lessen their taxable income (e.g. work less hours) or move their business outside were they can utilize favorable tax incentives, etc.
