Taxation is Theft
by Blood & Virtue
The emphasis on distributing the tax burden relative to pretax income is a fundamental mistake. Taxation does not take from people what they already own. Property rights are the product of a set of laws and conventions, of which the tax system forms a central part, so the fairness of taxes can’t be evaluated by their impact on preexisting entitlements.
Pretax income has no independent moral significance. Standards of justice should be applied not to the distribution of tax burdens, but to the operation and results of the entire framework of economic institutions.
