Reports say about 100 tax officials entered Google's offices in central Paris early in the morning. Police sources confirmed the raid, but Google itself has so far made no comment. Google is accused of owing the French state €1.6bn ($1.8bn; £1.3bn) in unpaid taxes.

Good.

We're coming for you.

Question:

Do you, yourself pay the "morally fair" taxes or the "legally fair"?

For example. In the country where I pay taxes there are deductions that everyone can make but can also choose not to make.

*Not* doing those deductions would be "morally fair".

So which is it?

I take the standard deduction since I don't have enough to make itemized deduction worthwhile.

Personally I'd rather there were NO deductions and just have a lower tax rate with no loopholes. What kind of tax code has the working class paying higher taxes than corporations and billionaires anyways?
