The FairTax Act In The News
Is This Still America? - Congressman Kevin Brady
…Americans shouldn’t fear the
IRS. Nor should they worry the powerful agency is discriminating against them
based on their beliefs. It’s bad enough how much wasted time American families
and businesses waste just complying with this bloated, complex tax code...
As Congress considers the IRS
abuses and tax reform, the Fair Tax is the gold standard of simplicity. A
simple retail sales tax that no longer punishes hard work, thrift and investment.
The most efficient tax in the world to collect. A tax with no loopholes, no
hidden tax breaks, no exemptions other than to ensure no American pays sales
tax on their necessities up to the poverty level.
Yes, it’s too bold for many
lawmakers. Yes, we have to continue to educate and build support in the public
and in Congress. But if you want the IRS completely and totally out of our
lives, the Fair Tax continues to be the only option that achieves it.
Let’s keep working. This won’t
succeed from Washington, but only from the grassroots up. And it’s worth
fighting for. Now more than ever.
Renegade IRS is
making even 'extreme' ideas seem rational - The
…“This could be the largest transfer of power (in American
government) since the Revolutionary War,” Armstrong told members of the Anthony
Wayne Rotary Club Wednesday, referring to the so-called “Fair Tax,” which would
essentially replace federal income taxes with a national sales tax. “The power
to tax is the power to destroy . . . The Fair Tax would stop punishing success.
Government would be funded by prosperity.”
There are plenty of good reasons to be skeptical about a
system that would allegedly generate more money for federal and state
governments while reducing taxes and accounting headaches for most Americans.
But with allegations of Nixon-style skullduggery making headlines on a
seemingly daily basis, there's no denying the appeal of what may be the Fair
Tax's most revolutionary feature:
The elimination of the IRS…
What is the purpose
of a tax system? – Watchdog
Almost from the day of its enactment, Congress has used the
income tax not only to collect revenue for the government but also to influence
behavior, to intimidate its foes and to reward certain groups of people. This
is a major reason that the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) has grown to 74,000
pages and nearly 4 million words. However, the income tax is a very inefficient
way to influence behavior.
If you ask most politicians, government officials or
realtors, they will tell you that the mortgage interest deduction is vital and
without it home ownership would collapse.
However, the facts tell a different story…Since the
homeownership rate in the United States is 65%, this means that the mortgage
interest deduction was not even used by 44% of our homeowners…
In light of recent events, there is a growing understanding
that the IRS must go. Only a national retail sales tax collected by the states
will allow the elimination of the IRS. As Representative Tom Rooney (FL-R) stated
when he recently became a sponsor of HR 25, the FairTax Act, “The
revelations of the last week have confirmed that it’s time to reduce or
completely eliminate the IRS, and build a new tax system that treats American
taxpayers with the fairness, honesty and integrity they deserve.”..
