The US Tax Code Forbids Individualism

Posted on: November 4, 2016

An argument can be made that the US Tax Code forbids individualism.

Because the tax code provides tax benefits to families for dependents and other activities related to having a family and not to individuals and provides no corresponding tax incentives to individuals, the tax code forbids individualism. A person with no dependents pays a larger share of taxes on the same income as a person with dependents.

The tax code also provides similar tax incentives to corporate activities but not to individual tax payers when corporations are themselves seen as “people” by law.

A tax code that forbids individualism is a tax code that also forbids creativity as individualism is the very font of creativity.
