SORA Fairtax is our implementation of Adam Smith's taxation system described in The Wealth of Nations, designed to make governments wealthy while being easy on the people
SORA Fairtax or shared direct taxation is a double entry tax system where each tax is split between the buyer and the seller. The seller's payments for each transaction must match the buyers'.
Tax burden is borne by the seller who must pay on behalf of the buyer. Receipts must be analyzed to determine correct tax payment
Tax burden is split evenly between buyer and seller. Tax payments are checked by comparing the tax payment of the buyer and seller in a sample
Where the riches are engrossed by a few, these must contribute very largely to the supplying of the public necessities. But when the riches are dispersed among multitudes, the burden feels light on every shoulder.
SORA Fairtax categorizes taxes according to two classes: Tax on fixed capital, called rent taxes, and tax on circulating capital, called profit taxes. The profit taxes check the natural rent-seeking behavior from rent taxes, while the rent taxes check the natural oligarchy tendency from profit taxes.
SORA Social Fairtax refers to the double-entry system on profit taxes where the buyers' interest checks the sellers' interest to evade taxes, and the public interest of the government checks the combined interest of the buyers and sellers who then check the government through elections. The simplicity of the system empowers everyone to check each other!
The ancient Tenths and Fifteenths were taxes so usual in England. They were taxes of the same kind as the taille.Simple Wealth of Nations, Book 3
