The Best Stimulus: 0% Income Tax
Instead of collecting and spending $2 trillion, why not cut out the middleman?

By Stephen Moore
Updated Oct. 6, 2020 3:33 pm ET

There’s a better way. Instead of spending the money, why not cut out the government middleman and not collect the taxes? In 2020 the personal income tax was expected to raise $1.81 trillion and the corporate income tax $260 billion, for a total of $2.07 trillion. For a little more than $2 trillion, Congress could suspend the personal and corporate income tax for a year.

The best stimulus would be no income tax for a year, per WSJ editorial. Great idea!  Better than government redistribution programs that accomplish nothing.

Could the best stimulus plan be a 0% income tax? Income-tax reductions have always had positive repercussions for the economy.
