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.

I support this whole heartedly. Nobody should be exempt from taxes. Many states do it this way because it costs less to collect the money this way.

Seriously we need tax revenue just to opperate as a country, however the current system is unfair and not equal accross all demographics. IRS and the tax code at one time was the answer but it's time to have another, better plan. Fair tax is the best idea I have heard of and will do much more than just fix the broken tax code in this country.

Tired of struggling to work for things when other people use my tax money to live. This country was started partly because of all the taxation in other countries. It's sad the way we our country spends money. Shame on us!

Passing the Fair Tax would save taxpayers over $12B by abolishing the IRS. It would also eliminate the $21B in losses to fraudulent returns. Think of what US businesses could do with the $500B they currently spend to comply with the current tax code. And don't try to tell me that all the Republicans that voted for the reform bill know all the little details about the content of the tax "reform".

The Fair tax will collect taxes from anyone and everyone regardless of income. The more money in the public's pocket the more they tend to spend at stores which would bring in more revenue for the government. It eliminates the possiblity for loopholes and evasion. Vote Yes to HR25/S18 and give yourself the chance to claim that you helped change a nation forever in a positive way.

I am American Citizen blessed with the birth-right of Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness by Almighty God. Every politician that has held national office since the creation of the 16th Amendment has conspired to strip me of my God given rights. My income is the product of my Life and my Life pursuits, it belongs to me not the government! Restore my God given birth right! Repeal the 16th Amendment. Institute the FairTax. Stop the class warfare! Stop the wealth redistribution! Do it now!

I am a licensed professional counselor from a healthcare shortage area. Low provider reimbursement rates combined with the high cost of being self employed put me out of business. I now drive an hour to work, work long hours and can no longer service my small town community. Income taxes punish productivity. If I had a choice I would no longer work. I have considered disability due to my health issues. Please help. Texas thrives on a sales tax, so can the United States. It's the only solution to keep the working class able.

When congress on both sides has one of the lowest approval ratings in the history of the United States of America, what really do you have to lose? Choosing a taxation system that is for the people and by the people would shock a nation that no longer sees you in public service but in self service. The current tax code and proposed tax code reflect and attest to the self serving nature of your tenures. It is an arbitrary system designed to pick winners and losers based on what congress thinks looks sexy to their "constituents" (read lobbyists) . Because you can't agree on ANYTHING, even "Common Sense" and constitutional sound solutions, we the people grow more disaffected and even cynical. In fact the fair tax would solve a hell of a lot of other problems congress has proven incapable of resolving to date, like illegal immigration. If everyone that lived here paid for the services they received, the immigration challenges would be largely mitigated. At this rate who knows how long before a true patriot may be inspired to write something so bold and outrageous as, " When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation......

Please stop screwing over the American people with "tax reforms" like the one you just passed and make a real difference in our taxation and country. The status quo has been maintained for too long by congress.

This is our best option for improving our tax system and I believe our overall economy. It removes all the loopholes and makes everyone equal from a tax perspective. Let's make this happen.
