One argument I keep hearing from Republicans is this: Taxes intended for "the rich" end up falling on struggling small business owners. As with most things politicians say, they don't explain themselves, but I assume the reasoning is this: a small business' revenue may go directly into the owner's bank account, making him appear "rich." But the owner doesn't treat that money as income -- most of it goes back into maintaining and building the business (or perhaps repaying the loans with which he started the business.) My question is: Surely there are ways around this? Isn't that what accountants are for?
