Mike Pezz started this petition to President of the United States and

We, the People of the United States of America, sternly remind our government that we are in charge. We no longer accept the notion that the government can raise taxes on it's citizens any time they wish and to fulfill funding goals for special interests. We recognize the need for government funding but will not accept that the government gets to decide what their funding will be. 

For too long the taxpayer has footed the bill for government projects and programs at the behest of Congress. We watch as our government spends frivilously and then suggests increasing taxes and then increasing minimum wage so they can get an even bigger bite while citizens still cannot make ends meet. This stops now. We, the people, will decide what to fund the government and the government will either make their programs fit into the budget or they won't be able to do it. Fiscal responsibility is a concept they need to get used to.

This petition demands a federal income and payroll tax of no more than 12% in peacetime with 2% or more of that dedicated to defense spending and 15% in wartime. We also will allow state income tax of no more than 5% and a local tax of no more than 3%. The corporate tax will increase from 21% to 23%. Small business tax will not exceed that of corporate tax. Capital gains and dividends tax will be reduced to 18%. Property tax should be eliminated because you are taxing something that we own and have already been taxed on but we will grant a property tax of no more than $300 per month for 1 family residential property under 10 acres and not to exceed $600 per month for properties of more than 10 acres. Income properties shall not be taxed more than 1 family residential property plus 5% state and 3% local income tax for less than 10 units and no more than 15% of generated income of properties exceeding 10 units. Commercial property tax will be subject to 2% of generated income or no more than $3000 per month per acre with structures not exceeding 2 levels above ground and 1 below ground level, whichever amount is higher. Sales tax will not exceed 5% as this is a form of double taxation and should be illegal. Tax breaks for all will be eliminated and tax refunds will not be necessary except for companies that invest in and create job opportunities in low income areas. 

This is our country. You serve at the permission of your constituents. You do not have our permission to egregiously tax us for our hard work and time away from our families.

Signed,

The Citizens of the United States of America.
