Economics 101: Proportional Tax

What is defined as a proportional tax?

Proportional Tax is a tax where everyone pays the same percentage, regardless of income.

The obvious example is a flat income tax.

Everyone, for example, pays a 15% tax rate - regardless of the income that they earn.

This is obviously different than a progressive tax, or a regressive tax.
