Default Please have a check. Are these sentences correct?

1 Consumption tax is equal to everyone.2 Regardless of our age, gender, status, all people have paid same amount of consumption tax when they buy a same product.3 Rich people who can afford luxuries like jewelry, top brand articles and imported car should pay a lot of consumption tax because it has a same rate on every product.4 Struggling families can cut down expenses by choosing the inexpensive product. 5 Other tax such as corporation tax and income tax is unequal because it isn’t imposed on everyone evenly, however consumption tax is a flat tax so it can be raised evenly among citizens. Please have a check.

Please read over the changes I have made. There are not many, I've just tidied it up a bit for you.

I'd say "Consumption tax is equal for everyone."Perhaps change number four to ... choosing a less expensive product.

1: Consumption tax is equal FOR everyone.[to = wrong preposition; tax equal "for who" not "to who".]2: Regardless of our age, gender or status, people pay the same amount of consumption tax when buying a product.[ or = conjunction; saying just people is enough as people already is plural; we still pay the same tax, it hasn't changed. So, it should be pay instead of "have paid"; "when they buy a same product" was not worded well.]3: Rich people who can afford luxuries like jewelries, top brand articles and imported cars should pay a lot of consumption tax because ---- [ it has a same rate on every product. ] ?? - your idea or what you are trying to say is unclear after because. Do correct it.4: Struggling families can cut down expenses by choosing the inexpensive products.5: Other taxes - such as: corporation tax and income tax - are unequal because they categorize people into different groups, whereas, consumption tax is flat enabling it to be raised evenly among citizens. Hope it helps.
