EXPLAINING THE SINGLES MONTHLY HOUSEHOLD TAX PENALTY

A single mom or dad, a single man or woman without children, of any adult age, who lives in a middle class house or apartment and able to purchase the services representing the usual lifestyle of those living in a safe neighborhood in a safe structure equal to the quality of life enjoyed by the two wage earner households in the neighborhood, pays approximately two hundred dollars ($200) more a month in 'taxes' (not including the singles income tax penalty) than each of the two wage earners of a two wage earner household in the same neighborhood.

That is a $200 singles tax penalty on top of the singles income tax penalty and in addition to the penalty of the expenditures of singles money collected and spent by the government on other people's children.

The listed expenditures of taxes are provided for consideration.  The total cost for the list below is $400 monthly, hence the tax penalty is $200.  Although one or two of the items are debatable, the principle and the approximate tax penalty is still valid.  The list is from the actual set of monthly bills of a middle income, middle-America neighborhood.  The national average may be higher and certain areas of the country may have additional taxes which are much higher.

CONCLUSION: SINGLES TAX PENALTY IS A LIBERAL CONCEPT

For those politicians who jump on the bandwagon of the dubious income tax marriage penalty, they should consider the total taxes paid per person that includes the monthly household tax inequity against singles.

The Fairtax people need to consider that not all consumption sales are individual sales. A sale of a house to a couple versus the sale of that same house to a single will not result in a fair tax for the single individual.  If the idea of the Fairtax is to provide a sales tax that taxes individual consumption to make taxes fair across individuals then the couple is not paying the full taxes for two people consuming the house. On the flip side, if each person of the couple is indeed paying the full individual consumption tax for the purchase of the house, then a single person buying the same house is paying twice the recognized fair individual consumption tax.

All costs of living incurred by singles similar to two wage earner households can not be normalized to per person levels, however, there are some tax burden measures that can be considered to provide a fair shake to singles.  Piling taxes on to singles is first pushed back on by the Seniors through compassionate advocates and seniors' organizations, but why should it have to come to that?  Don't Democrat and Republican politicians and their fiscal policy Think Tanks represent the singles of all ages?

Before any tax solution can be called a Fairtax or called a marriage tax penalty correction, the singles total tax liability must be considered and factored into the big equations.  In addition, spending the singles tax money on non-singles causes must be examined against ethical standards.  Family values is a crutch that some politicians manipulate to get votes and is not a desired value if it takes from singles to subsidize families vacations, jet skis, and college education.  Taking from one group to give to another based on a politician's district demographics is not a Conservative Value but is a Liberal Cause.
