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.

Our current system is broken. Save everyone the stress, waste of time and aggregation of filing income tax, shut down the IRS which has finally been revealed as corrupt and pass the FAIR TAX. Or change the day of all elections to April 16.

The tax code needs reform and the FairTax is one of the best ways to accomplish this. Please consider giving the legislation a real chance at an up/down vote in Congress.

It would be great not to have spends out gathering then doing my taxes, Everyone would pay their fair share. It would actually lower the cost to manufacture items in the USA as you would not have that added payroll taxes and give everyone a raise. This would boost the economy immediately as everyone would see an increase in their paychecks as less money would be taken out for Federal Taxes,

In my opinion the FairTax represents the best taxation idea I've ever seen, whereas the income tax is the very worst idea. Having an income tax is like having a rattlesnake as a pet -- you are sure to get bitten. In addition, the income tax, as a revenue tool, has been around for 100 years. It's like trying to drive an old 20th Century Model-T Ford on a modern 21st Century super highway. Wouldn't you be better off scrapping that car and replacing it with a new, modern vehicle? That's exactly what the FairTax is -- a more suitable vehicle for advancing this nation economically and efficiently. We all need the FairTax instead of the income tax.

Our current system takes too much taxes out of the working person pocket. As an example I just received a success check from my employer, I was taxed at 40%. That's 40%percent I could have put into my retirement fund, We need the change now.

It is FAR past time to re-evaluate how we do this... Overly complex and "hidden" is immoral, unethical, and just plain unfair to the average person. In this modern economy, our tax system must be made simpler and MUCH more fair to motivate the workforce to succeed and advance, and also leave people's wages in their pockets, thus further fueling their ability to keep the economy trending positive.

I recognize that a free society has to pay for that freedon. The problem with our system is the complication of the paying process. Filing my taxes is a burdensome, stressful process. I am never sure if I have obeyed the tax law or if I'll be punished in some way. I always try to follow the law but I don't want to pay more taxes than I am required to. I never really know if things are okay until I hear from the IRS, and even then, I am not certain. This is a stressful and unfair burden to put on free a free society.

The Fair Tax is long overdue! We shouldn't have to hire a tax accountant to prepare our tax form. This levels the playing field!
