FairTax.org has conducted extensive policy research and commissioned a variety of issue papers on the economic impact of the FairTax on various sectors of industry and individual taxpayers. This work has been conducted in a nonpartisan manner, and the results are made freely available here. We are also providing transcripts of testimony about the FairTax delivered to the House Ways and Means Committee and the House Committee on Small Business.

Beacon Hill Insitute in Boston has recently completed comprehensive research on the major facets of the FairTax: estimation of the tax base and rate for the FairTax compared to other tax reform proposals, its impact on the economy, on the states, on the distribution of the tax burden and on charitable giving.
