If you really want redistribution of wealth, you should tax wealth or charge protection fee, not income. I am not saying you should. But if you want, you may want to consider this.
If you tax income you will punish those who are more diligent. Many of which are actually poor. Tax wealth based on actual wealth the government protects. Land tax, for example.
Doesn’t have to be a lot. .5% is enough. Any rich guy can have more return than that. They declare their wealth and if some foreign country seizes that money, you send the troops. Fair deals.
