Why is the progressive tax is the ideal tax system?
the progressive tax system is the ideal one because it would not be unfair to the people whose income are less because the more you earn, the higher your tax rate.So it means that people who earn less will pay less tax rate while those people who earn more will pay more tax rate. That's the good thing about progressive tax system.
What type of income tax system does the tax rate or the proportion of earnings taken out in taxes is greater for higher incomes?
A progressive method is one in which the [marginal] rate of tax increases as the amount that is subject to taxation increases. A regressive method is one in which the rate decreases as the amount increases. A regressive tax system takes proportionately more money in tax from somebody on a lower income than someone on a higher income.
