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 is the most simple and straightforward tax system we could adopt, that is truly "sweeping tax reform." It eliminates the IRS and income and payroll taxes, so everyone keeps their entire paycheck, while un-taxing working poor U.S. citizens via the prebate and the elimination of regressive flat FICA and Medicare payroll taxes that is withheld from everyone's paycheck. Most importantly, the intrusive IRS and billions in individual and corporate federal and payroll tax compliance costs each year are eliminated and no tax returns are ever needed again. We only pay the federal Fairfax on purchases of new goods and services and this includes everyone, including those in the U.S. illegally or operating criminal enterprises- since everyone who lives here has to consume goods and services to live. These new goods and services will cost significantly less due to embedded income and payroll taxes now being removed from the roll-up of costs that go into the price of every good and service we consume, which offsets to a substantial degree the inclusive FairTax that will now be included in the price of new goods and services. The FairTax encourages "legal" immigration, since a social security number is needed to receive the prebate and will be a great step in becoming more environmentally friendly as a nation, since the paper printed out each year to comply with 77,000 pages of IRS rules, regulations and tax court opinions and rulings could stretch around the earth thousands of times, and the FairTax will encourage the purchase of many more "used" items since the FairTax is only included in the price of new goods and services. Lastly, a significant portion of Washington D.C. lobbyists will be unnecessary since there will be no more special treatment tax exemptions, exclusions or carve-outs to lobby for, and politicians won't be able to use the tax code to divide this great nation along ideological lines any more, since the only political debate will be what the FairTax "rate" should be.

This makes so much sense and it would reduce the federal work force (if that's what you after) by eliminating the IRS. This also simplifies life for every tax paying citizen in the US.

The 80k page tax code needs to go. There is no reason for it to be so complicated and difficult to figure out.
