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.

Lois Lerner took the 5th because she new she had violated the law. The IRS has always violated our God-Given rights and will always do so. It can not be "reformed." It must be eliminated. Rip it out by the roots so it can never come back. The only way to do that is to pass the Fair Tax!

Recent discoveries of the abusive nature, and above the law attitude by the IRS clearly shows that the system is broken and needs to be dismantled. A form of consumption tax; such as FairTax; is a key step in stabilizing our economy and creating growth.

Fair? What is the definition of fair? A tax system that allows large businesses to find loopholes to exempt themselves of their responsibilities of their tax burdens? While pentalizing small businesses starting up so much that it is almost impossible to start a small business? A tax code that has a thousand or so pages that is so complicated that most of washington have no clue to understand it and the people do not understand it and have to hire some professional to do their taxes? One that is so terrifying that tax payers will commit crimes to get the money to avoid being in the irs crosshairs? A government entity that has no laws regulating them and have more power than should be allowed? Is this the definition of fair? Or maybe a tax system that holds everyone equally responsible for supporting the government? One that is unbiased in not giving tax loopholes to anyone? News flash washington---government is of the people, by the people and for the people. Bosses do not get told how they are going to act! WE are your bosses!!!! Maybe washington should have a refresher course in this. A wakeup call to realize we pay you! But a fair tax takes an element that is lacking in washington, common sense. Any sane citizen can make better decisions on more regulations than our paid employees of washington can. So pass the Fair Tax and let our economy flourish and everyone relax from the stresses and pressures of our current UNFAIR tax code!!! Get with the program and get current washington. Quit slacking!!!!

ABOLISH THE IRS!! It is a miserable failure, and has WAY WAY to much power. The fair tax would simplify taxation and make it truly equitable. It makes so much sense that I'm afraid the corrupt morons in government will fight it tooth and nail because it removes one of their most powerful terror tools.

I really feel like it is the public VS the government now. This country can not last if the corruption is not stopped. The IRS is corrupt. There is something wrong with a person who has a masters degree from a major university and cannot figure out his own taxes.

The FairTax(R) is the only tax, existing or proposed, that is transparent, efficient, conducive to economic growth, unintrusive, neutral in application and fair.
