The vast majority of states have a combination of sales, property and income tax. Only 5 states do not have a general sales tax and only 7 do not have an income tax. That is pretty balanced.
Constitutionally only corporations should pay income tax.

The reason is simple, there are far fewer of them and they are much easier to tax.

AKA you would need to collect far fewer taxes at much less effort to get the same financial impact.

Forcing every poor ******* to do income tax every year on down to $3500 a year just wastes billions of dollars.

There have been many analysts that state collecting personal income tax doesn’t
Break even anyway.
