For years everything was harmonious in Dead Man's Gulch. Then the ranch
owners got their tax bills and started a range war. They turned the
townsfolk against each other all because of Progressive Taxes!
The idea behind Progressive Taxes sounds simple enough: The more you make, the
higher percentage of your income goes to taxes. In other words, your tax rate
rises as your income rises.
But try to tell our ranch owners they should pay more taxes than a
cowpoke just because the cowpokes earn less income.
