Proportional Taxes - How Does It Work?

Under a Proportional Tax system, everyone pays the same percentage of their income in taxes, regardless of how much money he or she makes. Let's say that the Proportional Tax was 20%.
If you made $1,000 a year mowing lawns over the summer, you would pay $200 in taxes. Pie Graph

If you made $8,000 per year working part-time at the pizza parlor, you would pay $1,600 in taxes.

If you made $80,000 a year working at an advertising firm, you would pay $16,000 in taxes. That might sound like a lot of money, but it's exactly the same percentage of income as someone making only $1,000.

Proportional Taxes take the same percentage of income from all income groups.
