The article “high income Americans pay most income taxes, but enough to be ‘fair’?” by Desilver on Apr. 13th, 2016 is about how some Americans believed that the tax rate levied on different individuals and corporations is not fair. Survey showed that most Americans think that how much tax they pay every year is relatively fair. However, many believed that the rich people still paid too little. In fact, individual tax income consisted of a little less than a half of government total tax revenue. Another 30% came from payroll taxes, 10% from corporate income taxes and the rest are from other kinds of taxes. Some small corporations in the form of partnerships or sole proprietorships pay tax according to the individual tax income bracket. The article concluded by saying that different people have various opinions on how tax should be levied.

The economic concepts involved in this article included proportional tax system, progressive tax system, regressive tax system and etc. proportional tax system is when everyone pays a fixed percentage of their income as tax. A progressive tax system is when the rich pay more percentage of their income as tax while the poor pay a small percentage of their income as tax. This policy helped to reduce the gap between the rich and the poor and it is the tax system that the US is currently using. The graph on the article showed that 51.6% of the income tax paid is from the top 2.7% group of people who earned the most income. While there are 24.3% of people earning less than $15,000 income, they contributed only 0.1% of the total income tax paid. Regressive tax system is the opposite of a progressive tax system and it is when the poor pay a higher percentage of their income as tax while the rich pay less percentage of their income as tax. This tax system is there to encourage the poor to work more and to be pulled away from the poor group soon.

I believe that the concept of “fair” is very hard to define because everyone has different thoughts on what is considered fair. There are different ways to measure what is fair and unfair. In the article, the author stated that the percentage tax levied changes constantly from time to time, depending on the economic situation. So it is hard to say which tax rate is fair because times change and the tax rate has to serve as a method to respond to current economic conditions. While some people argue that the tax rate should be structured to be more progressive, others argue that the tax rate should be flatter. The correct balance should be found to suit the overall economy and favor the majority of citizens.

Graph of progressive tax rate

From the graph, we can see that individuals who make less income are depicted in the lower left corner of the graph while those individuals who earn more income are represented in the upper right corner. Moving up your income level to the next tax bracket will let you pay a higher tax rate. Some argue that progressive tax should not be used because it discourages individuals from working hard and getting to the higher income level. However, I believe that individuals will still have the incentive to work hard even if they are faced with a higher tax rate because in absolute terms, not percentage terms, those who work harder will still receive more income. So for those who believe the progressive tax is not fair, they should try to work harder and move up to the next tax bracket instead of saying that progressive tax is not fair.
