Income tax a tax mostly on labour is the biggest source of government revenue worldwide. But in taxing your labour the government is taking what you have worked for. Perhaps what you have earned should be yours to keep? There are many forms of wealth that are unearned Why not tax these instead? Take land, for example. Nobody made the land, nature gave it to us. When you build on it, you improve it But the land itself was always there. So let us consider only the unimproved value of the land which is easy to assess. Desirable land in city centres commands an extremely high value. Remote rural land a very low value. Land has value because of the needs of the community. If you want a plot of land to be exclusively yours and you want the community to respect that title and the government to protect it Then some of the unimproved value of the land should be shared with the community. Land Value Tax should replace all other taxes. No VAT, No duties, No council or local taxes, No income tax. What you earn, you keep. What is unearned, is shared. Currently land, particularly in city centres is a luxury of the few. In the developed world over 80% of the land is owned by less than 1% of the people. If they want the sole use of that land Then share some of its unearned value. Let us redistribute the unearned wealth in the land from the few to the many. It would mean a fundamental shift in the way society works but surely a welcome shift. Hard work and endeavour are rewarded. Unearned wealth is not.
