The FairTax Act In The News
Don't reform the IRS,
shut it down – Washington
… What about the IRS? We will always have taxes, but do we
really need the IRS? I believe there is a compelling case that the time has
come to end the IRS and restructure the tax system that enables it.
First, as a nation, we have too few jobs and too much
consumption. And yet the federal government taxes jobs (wages, profits, capital
gains) and gives consumption a free pass. We have an IRS because we tax
production; switch to a consumption tax instead of a production tax and we no
longer need the IRS, as we know it.
A consumption tax can fund the government. In fact, two of
the largest and most vibrant economies in the world run without income,
payroll, or capital gains taxes: Florida and Texas. And the federal government
operated without an income tax for over 120 years…

Let’s scrap the
income tax, IRS now with Fair Tax bill –Homer
You may have noticed there’s a scandal surrounding the
Internal Revenue Service. The IRS has acknowledged the targeting of
conservative groups applying for IRS Code 501(c) status. This strikes at the
heart of the freedom guaranteed by the First Amendment. Regardless of political
leanings, certainly we can agree that the misuse of such a powerful and
feared bureaucracy is unacceptable. To paraphrase Shakespeare: Something is
rotten on the Potomac…
There is legislation pending in Congress that will end the tax
on productivity and the life of the IRS and its powers to harass and punish
hard working Americans. That legislation is known as the “Fair Tax” (HR 25 and
S122). The Fair Tax is the most extensively researched project on taxation ever

Think “the opposite”
about funding the federal government – Frank
and to the Point
Until the Mexico Olympics of 1968, high jumpers faced the
bar, and the record stood at 5′ 8″. Dick Fosbury turned his back on it and
leapt 7′ 4″, by thinking the opposite of everyone else. He literally ‘turned
his back’ and instead of jumping over the bar facing forwards, like every other
jumper in track and field history, he jumped over it backwards and shattered
records making heads spin in the process.
Today, US taxpayers face the IRS daily in the form of tax on
production. Personal and corporate income tax, inheritance and payroll tax: a
few of the largest taxes which have plagued citizens of this country since the
ratification of the 16th Amendment in 1913. What if there was a simple,
fair and transparent solution which could replace the current tax structure?
There is. It’s called the FairTax…

Enact 'FairTax' – Tri-City
…The politicians in Washington, D.C., give lip service to
simplifying the tax code. What they really mean is it's time for special
interests groups to open their cash accounts and fund the politician's
re-election. The politicians will then amend the tax code with
"loopholes" that benefit those special interests. Later, the
politicians will denounce the use of these "loopholes."
There are bills in Congress (HR25/S122) that would eliminate
the impact of the tax code on all citizens, groups and businesses. Tax exempt
status for groups such as churches and nonprofits would be a thing of the past.
Individuals would realize more take home pay once payroll taxes are eliminated.
All citizens would pay their "fair share."..
