Mr. Cain says the deduction from your paycheck will be 9% and you will pay 9% sales tax on all that you purchase (that is new). Hope someone doesn't try to develop a used food business! :laugh: Is that an increase or decrease for you? How big an increase/decrease - not looking for facts and figures just overall changes. The news tonight said a family of four with income of 50,000 income could have an increase of over 2000 in taxes. The context was income but they were not clear whether the 2000 includes sales or no, I would guess not.
