Business-Level Consumption Taxes

Business-Level Consumption Taxes

(p.161) 11 Business-Level Consumption Taxes
The Death of the Income Tax

Daniel S. Goldberg

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the methods by which a consumption tax could be enacted at the business level. The two places for imposing a consumption tax at the business level are at the point of sale and on businesses annually. The retail sales tax and the credit method value added tax both impose the tax at the point of sale. In contrast, the subtraction method value added tax imposes the tax on the business annually. Importantly, all of these business level consumption taxes eliminate the need for an individual to file a Form 1040. Like chapter 10, this chapter uses a numerical example to demonstrate how each of the alternative methods operates, which allows for easy comparison among alternatives. The chapter compiles the results of the example into one table for easy reference.
