Taxation

I have written extensively on taxation over the years, with a special emphasis on the income tax. As a libertarian, I believe that taxation is theft. But as a realist, I came up with a practical plan to abolish the income tax in 2001. I later took this idea and elaborated on it, posting all the information online at a new website I created called Towards a Tax Free Canada. The idea was predicated on the government running a surplus, which it had for several years when the site was created. However, after the Conservatives took over, they plunged the country back into a deficit again. The idea is still sound if the government can ever get its act together. There are five articles in the series, the original three part feature from April 26, 2001, an update from March 2005, and a revision and expansion for the new website in October 2006. The articles after that include an account of Canada's most famous tax rebel as well as some philosophical articles arguing that taxes are immoral.
