I think all taxation should be personal taxation; that a business should not be classed as a person for legal purposes and that no taxation should be levied on industry or business at all.
That should enable the tearing up of what in the UK is a 10,000 page tax code, most of it concerning various bribes, shakedowns, let-offs and special cases for businesses. I think if you can't make a tax code that can be written on one side of a piece of A4 paper, you're probably being paid by the hour to write it.

That they do not is indicative, don't you think?

Anyone losing the will to live yet? I could go on...
