Abstract:

This thesis provides a quantitative analysis of the impact of a flat tax rate on military members. The flat tax-rate proposal is the most popular alternative to our progressive tax system. The foremost experts on this topic are Robert E. Hall and Alvin Rabushka. They have made several claims regarding the flat tax however, insufficient research has been conducted to determine the impact of the flat tax rate on the income of military members. This thesis will address the claims of Hall and Rabushka and provide a quantitative analysis of the effect of a flat tax rate on military members of various pay grades.
