The Tax Foundation has released a recent poll on voters’ attitudes toward taxes. Not surprisingly, 56% say that taxes are “too high” (vs. 2% saying they are too low). More overwhelmingly, 85% say the federal tax code is too complex (how could anyone disagree with that, given that the Treasury Secretary and half of Obama’s cabinet nominees can’t figure it out?), and 82% thinks the system needs to be overhauled.
As for the question “What is the maximum percentage of a person’s income that should go to taxes?” The average response was 15.6%.
