Flat Tax System Questions

What is the Flat Tax System?

The Flat Tax System is a system in which the American population pays the exact same rate regarding taxes no matter what income the person receives. There are different places throughout the United States that administer the Flat Tax System. Not all states have put this system into effect yet and currently are being proposed to the states that are not offering this system.

Is the Capital Gains income included in the flat tax?

If the person was to choose the Flat Taxes 10% of the income earned would have to pay without deductions; even with 10% taxes wealthy people would be taxed the same. Since most of the American population is in a tax class that is more than 10%; those individuals would have to pay less tax. People that are poor would have to pay more taxes back to the Internal Revenue Service. Also, people that are wealthier would benefit more because of the people being in a higher tax bracket.

    My husband and I live in Chicago but have a second home in Indiana. We have had homestead on our townhouse in Chicago for 9 years, but are considering changing residency to avoid the high taxes in property and cars, etc. But since there is no reciprocity with Indiana, would it just be a wash because we'd have to pay income taxes for both states?
  • Hello, I have a delaware LLC and I am the single member

    Hello,

    I have a delaware LLC and I am the single member (I am also a non-US resident/citizen), I understood that I do not have to pay taxes in US but I still have to file tax return with form 1040NR. My concern is that if I do not pay taxes in US, I have to do that in my country but I don't know how are is the profit from the last year considered ? as dividends or how exactly ? On the Operating Agreement of the LLC, it appears as Distributions but how are these distributions considered as ? Do I have to report in my country the profit from the last year, all income & expenses or just the amounts that I sent in my personal accounts ?

    I do not know if the distributions are considered as dividends.

    Thanks !
