Best Answer

To collect over $2 trillion they would like about $11 billion for 2008. Will likely be budgeted for much less. See link for wish list budget.

Note: 1 trill = 1,000,000,000,000

1 bill = 1,000,000,000

So if we didn't just casually round the collections and you even just said 2.1T....that .1 T is one tenth a Trill or 100 Bill! Their budget is well within the trailing rounding! (If your thinking of arguing something like it costs more to collect taxes than it's worth).

The statement in quotes is opinion. Not fact. Use a value added tax. Eliminate the IRS completely. Even Illegal Aliens would pay taxes raising revenue. With our current debt, America cant afford an $ 11 billion dollar waste.

Obviously it would depend on how much it costs to operate your specific automobile. Without that information, all we can do is estimate based on averages. The IRS has performed that exact type of study, and has determined that, on average, it costs about 55 cents per mile driven to operate an automobile. Since the driving distance between El Paso and Orlando is 1,707 miles, then on average it would cost about $938.85 to drive there.
