Tax the Rich until there is Rich No More! Of course they would have moved out of the country.

In that case, they should be stripped of their French citizenship.

Income taxes are but one part of France's tax structure where policy can *harm* high income/net worth individuals.

Probably more of a concern are the various other taxes ranging from VAT, inheritance, property and so forth that really can hit hard.

For instance inhertiance taxes in France currently range from 0 to 60 percent. Because these taxes are mostly based upon relationship to the deceased there is ample room for movement.

It's good that they tried for progressive taxes. The world will eventually get there. I just hope that it doesn't require Great Depression 2 to make it happen.

45% isn't progressive enough for you?

One rate isn't progressive.

Not exactly surprising - NYC taxes are taking over 50% of folks earnings, while California is up to around 63%? The question, one imagines, is what is "fair?"

If we had the economy of those times, I'm all for it for everyone - let's all have some "skin in the game."

I'm curious why you feel those rates are "fair", and I wonder what kind of rate you pay, if you pay "your fair share" or if you perhaps you get back more than you put in.
