Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
No, this is just propaganda.

Tax code complexity doesn't come from the number of tax levels (one or ten line in a table) but from the sheer number of tax exemption (99.99% of the content of your favourite tax code).

"Niche fiscales" in french. I use only two niches fiscales and I divide my income tax by two. Only 8599865 pages left in the tax code...

All tax exemptions should be unconstitutional everywhere.

If a government wants to give money to someone, the government should just write a check and book it in the budget. That way it would be fully transparent to everyone.

And remember that tax exemption are only for those who pay a decent amount of taxes, direct check can be to everyone, not just the rich.
