The Libertarian National Committee is officially calling on the United States Government to issue a full refund to all Americans on their federal income taxes. The push comes as the the nation officially hits the deadline to file their tax returns on Tuesday.
The Libertarian party estimates that the average American family pays almost $14 thousand in taxes and the dollars being funneled into the government could be used to increase the American quality of life stating examples like an extra vehicle for a family or a year of college tuition at an in-state University.
“Every dollar that the federal government takes from Americans every year is a dollar they can’t use to make a better life for themselves and their families.” says Libertarian Party Chair Nicholas Sarwark “Instead, it is used by politicians to benefit their special interest cronies. The best thing the government could do is to stop stealing money from hard-working people and that’s why we are calling for a 100% tax refund to every American.”
As Libertarians are calling for abolishing the income tax, other groups continue advocating for a tax system that collects revenues of consumption of various goods and service.
