FairTaxers Needed In Your Town!
Tax week is normally a very
busy time for FairTax volunteers. In this issue of FTF, we’ve put
together some great activism suggestions. Also, keep reading to find out
about some special Washington, D.C. FairTax activities on April 16 and 17.
this issue of FairTax Friday, many families are reflecting on their religion
and preparing to gather with friends and family. Many others will sit around their
dining room table and struggle to finish a tax return that even many employees
of the IRS cannot understand. Frantic taxpayers everywhere are gathering W2s,
receipts and 1099’s to determine how much additional tax is due or has been
yearly cycle of frustration continues to cause untold economic damage to individuals, small business and our nation as a whole. There
is, however, an alternative.
FairTax plan removes federal payroll taxes, income tax withholding on wages and income taxes on savings, investments, capital gains and inheritance. It is
fair, simple and shines as an honest tax that removes the hidden taxes in
consumer prices so with every sales receipt, taxpayers can see how much they
are contributing to their nation. With the FairTax, every taxpayer ends the
April 15th nightmare.
To move the FairTax legislation forward we need your voice
and many more!
This is the time of
year people are most receptive to tax reform. The most dissatisfied Americans
are likely heading to the post office to drop off their tax returns. You can print FairTax
handouts, pick up FairTax gear and contact
a local FairTax
leader to coordinate reaching taxpayers outside the Post Office and give them hope!
you can forward this email, take just a minute to contact Congress, write
a letter to the
your website and 'like' our Facebook page.
Tell your friends, family and Congressman that the FairTax legislation replaces
today's IRS mess and will:
- Eliminate all
personal and business income taxes, payroll, estate and capital gains taxes
- Create jobs and
restore the Made in America
label by making U.S. products more competitive
- Raise real wages over 10% in the first year
- Save Americans $400 billion wasted yearly complying with 72,000+ pages
of tax regulations
- Lower tax rates for all Americans and capture taxes from
the underground economy
- Provide monthly
“prebate” payments to all
legal American households to offset taxes on necessities
- End the sale of tax favors to the rich, politically connected, and
special interest lobbying groups
- Grow the economy and GDP by billions of dollars
- Add trillions of US and foreign dollars to our economy by making America the place to invest
- Secure funding for
Social Security and Medicare with a larger, more stable tax base
- Raise the same revenue as the current system
- Lower product costs by removing business taxes & avoidance
and compliance expenses now hidden
- Eliminate the IRS and be collected by the states
are a lot of ideas to get our nation back on its feet but the
FairTax trumps them all. It has years of research to support
its claims and already has the backing of over 70 Congressmen and Senators.
who don't support the FairTax need you to help them understand why they should!
