My preferred taxation system
I prefer a mix of property taxes, government usage taxes, and shipping taxes. Eliminate retail sales tax and income tax. What this looks like to me: Run local governments (towns, townships, cities, counties) entirely off of property taxes. Run States off of assessments of local governments + port fees that consist of mileage/volume taxes. Run the federal government off of port fees of an additional level of mileage/volume taxes, plus assessments of states. Fund the roads and public parks off of usage fees. I believe this would enhance economic freedom by basically making domestic, middle class living inside of your city as cheap as possible for the services provided.
