Eliminate the Taxes on Capital Gains and Dividends In Order to Eliminate the Double Taxation
Eliminating taxes on capital gains and dividends would lower the cost of capital and encourage
investment in the American economy to create jobs. Additionally, these taxes amount to a double-
taxation on most individuals who choose to invest since they first had to earn that money and pay
income tax on it. Taxing these same dollars again when capital gains are realized serves to deter
productive and much-needed investment in our economy.
