STREET BEAT: ‘Should a flat tax rate be instituted?’

Sabrina Larson

Baldwin Hills

“Yes.  I think everybody paying the same rate would definitely make it fairer, but I don’t think rich people would go for it.”

Charlie McCoy

Los Angeles

“I like deductions myself, but I think they would get more money if there was a flat tax.”  

Victor Ali

Leimert Park

“Yes, because those who can afford to have their taxes prepared professionally usually end up paying less.”

Shawna Beal

Los Angeles

“It would make it more fair, but people with money would find a way around it.”
