UNITED CALIFORNIANS FOR TAX REFORM ANNOUNCE A SIGNATURE DRIVE TO PLACE AN ALTERNATIVE INCOME TAX RATE BEFORE THE VOTERS

IRVINE, CALIF. - CA Simple Tax will offer middle class taxpayers the choice of filing a simple one page tax form with simple instructions at tax filing time.

It will Simplify your record keeping

Gone will be today’s 63 pages of unintelligible instructions.

There will be no need to keep financial records (W2 and 1099 federal forms are all you will need).

The Standard deduction will be raised to $7020 for single filers and &14,040 for married couples filing jointly; there will be no need to itemize your deductions.  Simple!

It will Simplify your Tax Computations

Add up how much money you earned.  Subtract the standard deduction.  Multiply the adjusted amount by 0.025.  It's that Simple!

It will protect you from future audit

Every dollar amount entered on the simple form comes from an employer or a financial institution. If the dollar amounts are wrong its their fault, not yours.

It may reduce your taxes

The average rate of tax paid by taxpayers who earn less than $100,000 dollars is less than 2.0%. if you are paying more than this you may be paying for another persons tax break.

The Simple Tax establishes a single 2.5% rate and an increased standard deduction.

The Simple Tax eliminates the 4, 6, 8, and 9.3 % tax rates. It saves taxpayers $900 million.
