The Tax Deception

The Tax Deception
Tax reform in plain language.
By John Gaver
Foreword by John Linder

If you’re a FAIRtax supporter, you know that there is a lot of deception being perpetrated against the FAIRtax.  DC and its minions are determined to discredit the FAIRtax by any means they can.  That includes spreading a wealth of disinformation that they know their friends in the media aren’t going to question.

In John Gaver’s latest book, The Tax Deception, he exposes these fabrications and explains tax policy in a way that even people with limited knowledge of how taxation works can easily understand.

Though it's difficult to call a book on tax policy entertaining, you certainly won't be bored. In fact, Former Governor Mike Huckabee calls the book "brilliant” and said that it “should be read by Democrats and Republicans alike.” You can find his full comments on the back cover.
When you finish reading The Tax Deception, you'll have the knowledge to clearly and authoritatively discuss the FAIRtax, and tax policy in general, with everyone from your spouse to your Congressional representatives.  Although when speaking to your representatives, be sure to speak slowly and not use big words.  You’ll be able to advocate persuasively for the FAIRtax on social media and at town hall events.
"The Tax Deception" is essentially a plain English goals-based analysis that breaks tax reform down into 22 bite-sized goals. 
In The Tax Deception, three types of tax reform are compared to the current income tax and to each other.  The book is broken down into four sections. In the first section, John identifies the problems with our current income tax. In the second section, he discusses the basics of each plan and establishes 22 goals for tax reform, based on the problems identified in the first section. 

Then, in the third section, he examines how well each tax reform plan meets the stated goals.  Each plan is ranked on a scale of one to ten for each goal. 

In the last section, the scores are totaled, and one tax reform plan clearly rises to the top – the FAIRtax. Even an “Ideal Flat Tax” barely broke 50%.
If you have ever found yourself stumped when talking to someone about the FAIRtax, then you need to read The Tax Deception. It’s filled with charts, tables, graphs, and analogies that make it easy to remember the important points. There are 76 footnotes containing URL’s where you can find the sources for cited statistics, official statements, and the like. 
The Tax Deception is a fast read, but it will arm you with the data you need to discuss tax policy clearly and accurately with everyone.  But most importantly, it will let you see what the DC elites have been hiding from you for decades—that current tax policy is designed to benefit them, not you.

When it comes to taxes, an informed voter is the last person many members of Congress want to have asking questions at a town hall. They know that one properly phrased question can shatter their narrative on taxes and expose their tax deception to everyone present.  

On the other hand, the politico may just be another victim of tax deceptions regarding the FAIRtax. Either way, after reading The Tax Deception, you could well become the person who turns one of those politicians around.

This is a book that each of us should order and send to our elected representatives as well as our friends and neighbors. 

It is now available for pre-order on Kindle, for delivery on March 15.  The paperback will be available for normal order on March 15 on both Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The eBook should also be available for Nook and IOS on that day. 

First day sales make a huge difference in making it a best seller.

Also, after reading it, please write a review. Even a one sentence review is far more important than just a star ranking. The more people who read "The Tax Deception", the more people can see through the myriad of deceptions surrounding the FAIRtax, and the closer the FAIRtax comes to being a reality.


Please order copies of The Tax Deception for each of your Members of Congress.  Give copies to your friends as well and enlist them in helping us eliminate the dreadful income/payroll tax system.

The choice is easy—do we want a system for funding the federal government:
  • That is so simple everyone can understand it.
  • That shows the costs of the federal government on every retail receipt so all of us understand what we are paying.
  • That helps U.S. companies compete with foreign competitors.
  • That keeps jobs in the U.S. rather than exporting them to other countries.
  • That permanently establishes the solvency of Social Security and Medicare.
D.C. is ignoring the one real solution that allows us to remain citizens and not subjects, the FAIRtax.  The FAIRtax is simple, non-invasive, but most of all, IT WORKS!

Please go to this link to invest in AFFT and help us pass the FAIRtax.  It’s an investment in your and your family’s future. 


Why would D.C. pass the FAIRtax and give up this almost unlimited source of donations?  The only way that they will is if the rest of us demand it!
Isn’t it time to end this ludicrous tax collection system and the IRS?

There is going to be a vote on the FAIRtax in the House of Representatives.  

We now have the opportunity to force all Members of the House to show where they stand.  They can:
  • Vote for the present income/payroll tax system or for the FAIRtax.
  • Support the corrupt income tax and the IRS or eliminate it.  It can’t be any simpler than that.
  • Hide the true cost of their government or pass the FAIRtax and show everyone the true cost of government on each retail receipt.
  • Support the largest transfer of power from government to the people, the FAIRtax, or not.
If Members think that the FAIRtax needs to be amended to address a problem, then they can propose the change.  Don’t let reject the entire bill because it has a perceived “flaw” that can be addressed.  

By contributing (investing) $10.40 per month, you help provide a financial base to AFFT.  If you can make larger contributions (investments), these will be used not for salaries, as we are all volunteers, but for the needed updates to our economic studies which will be vital for all future years.
