Income taxes are not border-adjustable; meaning the tax component embedded into products via taxes imposed on companies cannot be removed when exported to a foreign country (see Effect of taxes and subsidies on price).

The principles of an income tax are also argued by critics. Frank Chodorov wrote ¬タワyou come up with the fact that it gives the government a prior lien on all the property produced by its subjects.
