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.

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.

FairTax is the biggest transfer of power from government to the people since the Revolutionary War.

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!!!

That politicians have shelved this legislation for 20 years proves undeniably that they care only for themselves in the present (the income tax code helps raise campaign donations) and for their futures (where they hope for high paying lobbying jobs after leaving congress) nurtured by the same special tax favoritism the income tax provides. Fair Tax bills were researched and written by private and university economists (not politicians) to provide America the best possible tax system. Fair Tax will: create jobs and opportunities for young Americans in a booming economy, dramatically lower the "tax gap", tax the underground economy, allow families to keep more of what they earn, reduce compliance costs, adequately fund social security without benefit reductions, eliminate trade deficits without tariffs or trade wars, and eliminate the I.R.S.

This is the tax system that our country needs. It creates an incentive to save, would boost the economy, make government more accountable with money they have, create an incentive for illegal immigrants to become legal (in order to get the prebate), makes it so that even drug dealers and con-artists pay taxes, and no paperwork would ever need to be filed! Why is this not being talked about more in the media???

Considering the tax bill signed in March of this year, which is basically at a point of no return of debt in this country. This bill is a step in responding to the debts that this country continuously incurs. As a bookkeeper, this would make EVERY employer and employees' lives more of the American dream than the nightmare it will become with our debts.

I have supported this effort for many years. I believe this progressive tax structure would solve our current budget issues and generate more revenue from resources that the current tax system does not address. I believe this type of system has been validated by many states that use a sales tax system with NO income tax. Please help us improve our tax system by adopting a system that is truly non biased and FAIR.
