Republicanís destination based cash flow tax?

Republicanís destination based cash flow tax?

Destination based cash flow tax, (DBCFT):

This explanation published by the Christian Science Monitor, (a reputable newspaper), is inadequate. Can any of the forumís members provide a link to a superior explanation of DBCFT?

Excerpted from
Here is the scoop on corporate tax reform proposals from House Republicans - CSMonitor.com

ď(2) The DBCFT is essentially a value-added tax (VAT), but with a deduction for wages. Every advanced country except the U.S. has a VAT alongside a corporate income tax. The U.S. would in effect be replacing the corporate income tax with a modified VAT. A VAT taxes consumption, not income Ė it has the same effects as a national retail sales tax, but works better administrativelyĒ.

Double dipping? Enterprises operating within the USA deduct their normal domestic expenditures for labor costs (from what if corporate income taxes are repealed)?

How would the USA enforce a tax upon money paid to recipients beyond our borders? Isnít that particularly difficult when the money is passed among globally operating single enterprises, or enterprises associated with each other such as subsidiary enterprises or otherwise independent enterprises that are associated by innumerable manners of other agreements?

What Iíve read thus far implies a proposal thatís only applicable to USAís international transactions; I consider that to be less rather than more feasible than USA adopting a general value added tax, (i.e. VAT).

Respectfully, Supposn
