Passed on 6/7/2013

Whereas the United States imposes a self-employment tax on individuals who choose to establish their own means of earning a living, and

Whereas the amount of self-employment tax as a percentage of overall income far surpasses the proportion of income that is typically taxed through payroll taxes on individuals who work for other employers, and

Whereas the discrepancy between the amounts that self-employed persons and other employees are taxed creates an unfair disadvantage to self-employed persons who are trying to create a sustainable income and economy with which to make a living, then

Be it hereby resolved that it shall be the official position of the Ministry of Small Business Administration that any self-employment tax rate imposed by the U.S. Government shall never surpass the percentage of income that is likewise applied as the payroll tax for employed individuals, and

Furthermore be it resolved that this resolution immediately be forwarded to the Ministry of IRS, Ministry of Economics and the Executive Board of the U.S. Parliament for action and synchronization.
