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.

With 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 overpaid.

This 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. 

The 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!  

Also, you can forward this email, take just a minute to contact Congress, write a letter to the editor, get widgets for 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

There 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.

Americans who don't support the FairTax need you to help them understand why they should!

It's High Noon for the FairTax 

On Monday, April 16, 2012, we are joining with our friends at Fair Tax Nation for a virtual “Storm the Hill.” We’re asking FairTaxers everywhere to call their U.S. Representative and Senator at 12:00 noon eastern and tell them why you want their support for H.R. 25 / S. 13 “The FairTax Plan.” Send them a tweet – write a comment on their Facebook page.  Make sure your voice is heard.

Click www.house.gov to find your Congressman's contact information. All 435 Congressmen need to hear from Americans demanding this horrible tax code be replaced NOW with the FairTax.

Take action for the FairTax at high noon!

Stand Tall with Rob Woodall on April 17

On Tuesday, April 17, 2012, Representative Rob Woodall (R-GA and FairTax Sponsor in the House of Representatives) is hosting a press conference outside the capitol at approximately 1:00 pm eastern.  He is inviting members of Congress who support the FairTax and all FairTax supporters who are able come join him in support of the FairTax.

The FairTax in the News

Fair Tax would fix our economic woesDaily Record

… Let us focus on tax reform as a significant step to rebalance our economy. The Fair Tax, in Congress as HR 25, is the most promising tax reform alternative. It is revenue-neutral and eliminates all payroll, federal individual and corporate income taxes. It replaces that with a consumption tax on only new products and services. It is progressive via prebates up to poverty level to offset impact of added consumption tax. It eliminates all special tax breaks that are dubious at best in terms of a positive net impact on economic growth. It eliminates the Internal Revenue Service, which alone will boost our GDP annually by at least the $430 billion in tax compliance cost.

Finally, its zero percent federal corporate income tax rate will position the United States overnight as an entrepreneurial-friendly haven. Foreign and domestic investors and venture capitalists will take advantage of this. This will accelerate much needed economic growth. To learn more visit www.fairtax.org.
