The FairTax Picture of the Week
Grant Swanson writes: I have this magnet on the back of my truck. I am getting many readers in my rear view mirror at "red lights". Lots of "thumbs ups".
FairTax.org Staff Spotlight
We would like to extend our heartfelt
appreciation to Michele Driver for her service to the FairTax as
our Comptroller. Even through long nights of work and short schedules, her
cheerfulness and dedication were an inspiration. Our organization is stronger because
of her efforts and we wish her the very
best as she moves to a different career field. Thank you Michele!
The FairTax in the News
FairTax seems like a
simple choice – PostBulletin
We all have to make tough choices in life. Choosing between
the current income tax and the FairTax is not that tough. How would you like to
get your entire paycheck, for an immediate 10 percent raise, maybe more?
How would you like to never have to file another income tax form for the rest
of your life? How would you like to see a number for the cost of running the federal government on every cash register receipt?
How would you like to see trillions of dollars returned to the U.S. from
Switzerland, Cayman Islands, Hong Kong, etc. to jump start the economy and
restore "Made in America?"…

Federal tax system
needs overhaul – Lacrosse
Our income tax system is the most fundamental interface we
have with our government. Yet in this most fundamental interface with
government, we don’t understand the tax system.
The tax code consists of some 70,000 pages. It has been
estimated we spend $900 per person each year complying with the tax code. That’s
a total of about $265 billion each year…
We can leave our children and grandchildren something
better. The Fair Tax organization has drafted bills for both the House and the
Senate, H.R. 25 and S.13. The Fair Tax organization has sufficient support that
there have been committee hearings on these bills.
