Has the notion of a consumption tax ever been bounced around here? I have given it some thought, and it seems to be a decent idea conceptually, but there would have to be some major restrictions on it. I don't want to see goods and services taxed all the way down the line. I am thinking back to my second business here which was a pizza shop. I wouldn't want to see all the ingredients to make a pizza taxed and then the final product taxed as well. I tend to think that only the consumable product should be taxed. So in that sense, I am thinking that businesses would only be taxed on products they buy as the end user, and not product that would go into the production of their product or service. Too complex?
