Tell Congress: Pass the Fair Tax Act of 2017!

Messages Sent So Far

The current federal income tax system is clearly broken — unfair, overly complex, and almost impossible for most Americans to understand. 

But there is a reasonable, nonpartisan alternative before Congress that is both fair and easy to understand. A system that allows you to keep your whole paycheck and only pay taxes on what you spend.

It's called the FairTax. Introduced in the U.S. House and Senate as H.R. 25 and S. 18, respectively, The FairTax is a national sales tax that treats every person equally and allows American businesses to thrive, while generating the same tax revenue as the current four-million-word-plus tax code... and without the I.R.S.

The Fair Tax Act of 2017 is the only tax replacement plan before the U.S. Congress that: 
 

  • Eliminates all federal income and payroll taxes including personal, gift, estate, capital gains, alternative minimum, Social Security/Medicare, self-employment and corporate.
  • Eliminates the need for businesses and individuals to file federal income tax returns.
  • Eliminates over 74,000 pages of Internal Revenue Code and the estimated $350 billion in annual compliance costs.
  • Defunds, disbands and eliminates the Internal Revenue Service.
  • Favors American businesses and workers over foreign corporation, and dramatically increases the rate of economic growth and job creation.
  • Brings American jobs back to America and generates employment opportunities for the hundreds of thousands of chronically unemployed.
  • Repeals the 16th Amendment and direct taxation through companion legislation.

Take action and tell your U.S. Representative and Senators to co-sponsor the Fair Tax Act of 2017. Add your name in the fields below to proceed to send your no-cost letters.

The FairTax returns the power of governing to "We the People", stops tax lobbyist from owning our public servants, makes taxation more visible and filing taxes is no longer a time and financial burden to the People

Why do we penalize a person working by taxing his income?Why do we have a social secuity network based on age and not need?How do we encourage individuals to save instead of spend?Is our present system fair?We are always arguing how we spend money(as a nationP And not how we raise revenue to support our budget,It is time to let the laborer keeps his income and for everyone to become more fiscal responsible.This all can be done with the FairTax

Individual and social responsibility is what the FAIRtax offers.We can spend the money we earn on our needs and wants and at the same time contribute to the social safety net that so many of our citizens depend on.

Finally. A taxation plan that makes sense and has equal representation for every person within our insecure borders...including people who shouldn’t be here. Amazing!

Everyone is subject to the Fair Tax. If you buy something new, you will pay your fair share of taxes. There will be an increase in tax revenue. This tax will also be the answer for taxes and cryptocurrencies.

While the republicans have control this is the ideal time to pass to fair tax. This is the only FAIR tax method. Every person who presently claims no income currently,such as drug dealers etc,. will start to contribute.

When the government does 30-40% of my work I'll pay it, until then is just extortion, plain and simple! Tax the hell out of everyone and everything still nothing changes, it feels like my money gets traced by the government more than it should be, 35% on my check, another 7% at the check out lane for food, the 7% at the gas pump, the 7% at a restaurant, 7% at the clothing store, it seems to me like i take home 100 dollars a week, and that doesn't count house payment taxes, water, electricity, cell phone, television taxes up the wazoo and before all that the government wants to put their hand in my pocket first!!! Scam!!!!

Only tax items that people purchase. We are already taxed with income tax. Either tax our pay checks and nothing else OR eliminate federal income tax and tax us on the goods and services we buy. Doing both is choking the American worker.

Taxes should only be on spending, not income and taxes should be included in the price quoted, displayed and advertised for better informed consumers.

Many libertarians such as myself believe that taxation is theft. I believe that there is a way of doing it so that it is not theft. FairTax has come up with a way. Thank you!

It’s time for real tax reform that benefits the majority of Americans. A national sales tax is transparent, fair (with the monthly prebate), and easy to collect through businesses (which are paid for collecting those taxes)! Please join us by enlisting the support of your neighbors, friends, local businesses, religious leaders, and elected officials!! Grassroots pressure on our elected officials is the only way to get this passed, but that pressure needs to come from a diverse group of people.

Not only fair but helps solve multiple problems. Cuts out welfare abuse through the prebate and encourages those wanting to better their lives to get a job. It will entice new businesses and whole corporations to move their operations here thus increases the need for skilled workers. It will slow the flow of illegal immigrants and encourage the ones already here to seek citizenship, because only legal citizens and legal immigrants get the prebate. Everybody pays their fair share and the government will actually get more than they will with the current system. It is a win-win all around. Do the right thing for all those that elected you. Pass the Fair Tax Act NOW!!!
