The FairTax: It’s Time

 

 

FAIRTAX AD

The US economy needs to bounce back from the current recession.

The creation of new jobs requires restoring consumer and business confidence.

State of the States Snapshot: Consumer Confidence

State of the States Snapshot: Hiring vs. Letting Go

Real Unemployment Figures Double Those Reported By Labor Department

The vast majority of jobs are created in the private sector by small businesses.

Consumers must be willing and able to purchase goods and services from businesses.

Before businesses will expand and invest in their businesses, they need the certainty that  consumer demand for their products and services is growing and tax rates will remain fixed.

The number of unemployed Americans is now over 11 million people and the unemployment rate is heading for 10% by July.

A 10% unemployment rate would mean over 16 million Americans being unemployed by July 4, 2009.

The proposed “stimulus bill” is largely more government spending and more government debt, one of the causes of the economic crisis.

The stimulus bill is a continuation of the problem not a solution.

We the people must regain confidence in the future of the US economy.

Businesses can create wealth and jobs now provided the Federal government would get out-of-the-way.

We the people need another plan or course of action, call it the American People’s Plan–6 Month Tax Holiday and The FairTax.

 Revised and Updated

  

For the third and fourth quarters of 2009 (July 1 through December 31, 2009) give all individuals and businesses a six month tax holiday from Federal income taxes, payroll taxes (Social Security and Medicare taxes), and capital gains taxes.

For individuals this means their gross pay will not have any deductions for income and payroll taxes.

This means an individual’s gross pay will equal their actual pay.

FairTax for America

The sixth month period will be used to prepare businesses and the Federal Government for the change over from a Federal tax based on income to a Federal tax based on consumption– the FairTax.

UPDATE

The American People Celebrate Independence Day–Saturday, July 4, 2009–By Marching in 1000 Cities and Towns and Attending Ice Tea Parties To Freeze Federal Government Spending, Taxes and Deficits–30 Million Expected Nationally–1 Million In Washington D.C.!

What is the FairTax plan?

The FairTax plan is a comprehensive proposal that replaces all federal income and payroll based taxes with an integrated approach including a progressive national retail sales tax, a prebate to ensure no American pays federal taxes on spending up to the poverty level, dollar-for-dollar federal revenue neutrality, and, through companion legislation, the repeal of the 16th Amendment.

The FairTax Act (HR 25, S 1025) is nonpartisan legislation. It abolishes all federal personal and corporate income taxes, gift, estate, capital gains, alternative minimum, Social Security, Medicare, and self-employment taxes and replaces them with one simple, visible, federal retail sales tax  administered primarily by existing state sales tax authorities.

The FairTax taxes us only on what we choose to spend on new goods or services, not on what we earn. The FairTax is a fair, efficient, transparent, and intelligent solution to the frustration and inequity of our current tax system.

The FairTax:

  • Enables workers to keep their entire paychecks
  • Enables retirees to keep their entire pensions
  • Refunds in advance the tax on purchases of basic necessities
  • Allows American products to compete fairly
  • Brings transparency and accountability to tax policy
  • Ensures Social Security and Medicare funding
  • Closes all loopholes and brings fairness to taxation
  • Abolishes the IRS

We offer a library of information throughout this Web site about the features and benefits of the FairTax plan. Please explore!

Unfortunately, the American elites of both political parties are opposed to the FairTax.

Once the FairTax is in place, lobbyists and the Federal Government would no longer have the Internal Revenue Code to play with and change to benefit their clients and professional politicians.

On July 4, 2009 march on Washington D.C. to demand the passage of the American People’s Plan–both the six month tax holiday and the FairTax.

This must be a grassroot effort of individuals no matter what your political affiliation.

Do this on your own initiative and bring your family, a friend or neighbor.

Have city car convoys and fly the American flag on your way to Washington D.C. for the biggest fair and Tea Party in American history.

Call your favorite talk radio host and ask them to support and speak at various Tea Parties at the Washington Fair on Saturday, July 4, 2009.

If you cannot make it to Washington call the capital switchboard and ask for your Senator and Representative.

American citizens are the boss.

FairTax

“The FairTax is a proposed change to the federal tax laws of the United States that would replace all federal income taxes[1] with a single national retail sales tax. The plan has been introduced into the United States Congress as the Fair Tax Act (H.R. 25/S. 296). The tax would be levied once at the point of purchase on all new goods and services for personal consumption. The proposal also calls for a monthly payment to all family households of lawful U.S. residents as an advance rebate, or ‘prebate’, of tax on purchases up to the poverty level.[2][3] The sales tax rate, as defined in the legislation, is 23 percent of the total payment including the tax ($23 of every $100 spent in total—calculated similar to income taxes). This would be equivalent to a 30 percent traditional U.S. sales tax ($23 on top of every $77 spent before taxes).[4]

With the rebate taken into consideration, the FairTax would be progressive on consumption,[3] but would also be regressive on income at higher income levels (as consumption falls as a percentage of income).[5][6] Opponents argue this would accordingly decrease the tax burden on high income earners and increase it on the middle class.[4][7] Supporters contend that the plan would decrease tax burdens by broadening the tax base, effectively taxing wealth, and increasing purchasing power.[8][9] The plan’s supporters also argue that a consumption tax would have a positive effect on savings and investment, that it would ease tax compliance, and that the tax would result in increased economic growth, incentives for international business to locate in the U.S., and increased U.S. competitiveness in international trade.[10][11][12] Opponents contend that a consumption tax of this size would be extremely difficult to collect, and would lead to pervasive tax evasion.[5][4] They also argue that the proposed sales tax rate would raise less revenue than the current tax system, leading to an increased budget deficit.[4][13]

In recent years, a tax reform movement has formed behind the FairTax proposal.[14] Increased support was created after talk radio personality Neal Boortz and Georgia Congressman John Linder published The FairTax Book in 2005 and additional visibility was gained in the 2008 presidential campaign. A number of congressional committees have heard testimony on the bill; however, it has not moved from committee since its introduction in 1999 and has yet to have any effect on the tax system. The plan is expected to increase cost transparency for funding the federal government, and supporters believe it would have positive effects on civil liberties, the environment, and advantages with taxing illegal activity and illegal immigrants.[10][15] There are concerns regarding the proposed repeal of the Sixteenth Amendment, removal of tax deduction incentives, transition effects on after-tax savings, effect to the income tax industry, incentives on credit use, and the loss of tax advantages to state and local bonds. …”

BEYOND THE BASICS

Although a national consumption tax is simple, fair, and transparent, it is recognizably a dramatic shift from our current taxation system.  The economic impact has been researched and debated at length with the resulting studies being presented primarily within two sections:  Beyond the Basics and Research & Bill.  In Beyond the Basics, we present an in-depth view of the FairTax, the background of the current tax code, and the economic arguments that support the FairTax initiative.

Historical View of Taxation
Alexander Hamilton, our nation’s first Secretary of the Treasury shares his thoughts on taxation (excerpt from the Federalist Papers, Federalist No. 21).

Plain English Summary of the FairTax Act (PDF)
This document is a summary of the Fair Tax Act of 2007 (HR 25/S 1025), written in plain language.

Testimony submitted by FairTax.org to the President’s Advisory Panel on Federal Tax Reform (PDF)
Our Chairman, Leo Linbeck, explains to the Tax Panel how the FairTax meets the President’s principles of tax reform: simplicity, fairness and pro-growth.

Taxing Sales Under the FairTax: What Rate Works? (PDF)
The results are in.  Beacon Hill Institute and Dr. Larry Kotlikoff team up to provide a detailed estimate of the FairTax Base and derivation of the proper rate calculation formula.  Bottom line is that the 23% rate works it replaces the revenue generated by the repealed taxes, maintains the real value of federal spending, and imposes no additional fiscal burden on state and local governments.

A Macroeconomic Analysis of the FairTax Proposal (PDF)
This study employs a dynamic supply-side economic model to estimate the impact of the FairTax on major economic indicators:  GDP, disposable income, consumption, investment under the FairTax are all exceed what they would be if the current system were to remain in place.

These documents give a comprehensive look into the overall explanation of and arguments for the FairTax.  For more research pertaining to specific sectors of our economy and more thorough discussions of the economic issues, please visit the Research & Bill section.

Implications of the FairTax

By Wendy Valencia and Dan Valencia

“…The tax would only be applied once on new goods and services used for personal consumption. Anything purchased used or secondhand would not be subject to the tax. In addition, the tax would not be levied on intermediate business purchases.

The Act also calls for a monthly “prebate” to be issued to every family for purchases up to the poverty level. This means that every month, every household would receive a rebate check for purchases that household will make on necessary goods up to the poverty level.

Under our current system illegal immigrants don’t pay taxes, yet receive benefits, benefits being paid by legal taxpayers. Under the FairTax Act the monthly prebate would not be given to illegal immigrants, but illegal immigrants would still be paying the sales tax, which provides additional revenue to the government that is currently unaccounted for.

The FairTax would provide increased government transparency, but at the loss of tax deductions. However, even with tax deductions becoming meaningless, business owners and corporations still have much more to gain. For instance, businesses would not be required to pay corporate, self-employment, payroll, or capital gains. Businesses would keep more of their money and only be taxed on new goods or services purchased. In most cases, this would mean an increase in your business’s bottom line.

We all know that having more money in your pocket will lead to either increased spending or increased saving/investing. Increased spending would mean more tax revenue for the government at the time of purchase. If you save/invest, then your savings/investment will be able to grow tax-deferred until you spend it at which point you’ll pay taxes on it. The end result is that all income will be taxed, but the question is when. The primary benefit to you as a business owner or as an individual is that you determine WHEN and HOW you pay. …”

Economy in a Free Fall – Millions More Will Lose Jobs

THE EMPLOYMENT SITUATION:  FEBRUARY 2009

Nonfarm payroll employment continued to fall sharply in February (-651,000), and the unemployment rate rose from 7.6 to 8.1 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor reported today.  Payroll employ-ment has declined by 2.6 million in the past 4 months.  In February, job losses were large and widespread across nearly all major industry sectors.

Unemployment (Household Survey Data)

The number of unemployed persons increased by 851,000 to 12.5 million in February, and the unemployment rate rose to 8.1 percent.  Over the past 12 months, the number of unemployed persons has increased by about 5.0 million, and the unemployment rate has risen by 3.3 percentage points.  (See table A-1.)

The unemployment rate continued to trend upward in February for adult
men (8.1 percent), adult women (6.7 percent), whites (7.3 percent), blacks
(13.4 percent), and Hispanics (10.9 percent).  The jobless rate for teen-
agers was little changed at 21.6 percent.  The unemployment rate for Asians was 6.9 percent in February, not seasonally adjusted.  (See tables A-1, A-2, and A-3.)

Among the unemployed, the number of job losers and persons who completed temporary jobs increased by 716,000 to 7.7 million in February.  This measure has grown by 3.8 million in the last 12 months.  (See table A-8.)

The number of long-term unemployed (those jobless for 27 weeks or more) increased by 270,000 to 2.9 million in February.  Over the past 12 months, the number of long-term unemployed was up by 1.6 million.  (See table A-9.)

Here comes the Internet sales tax grab

By Michelle Malkin  

uncle_obama

“…State governments — now suffering from spending binges, fiscal mismanagement, and exploding budgets — are starving for new tax revenue. Brick-and-mortar stores and the commercial real estate lobby — reeling from the bad economy — are desperate for a leg up on online competition. They’ve teamed up to renew their years-long push for Congress to effectively impose Internet sales taxes and turn online retailers into tax collectors. A bill will reportedly be introduced on the Hill this week by GOP Sen. Mike Enzi and Democrat Rep. Bill Delahunt.

The New York Post sums up the possible legislative implications with a helpful graphic:

The Million Taxpayer March

By Michelle Malkin 

“…If only the condescending cable TV anchors at CNN and MSNBC had paused from wallowing in gutter puns about tea bags, they might have reported an even more significant phenomenon: Tea Party protesters were as vocal in their criticism of Republicans as they were of Democrats. In Salt Lake City, Utah, a crowd of 2,000 repeatedly booed GOP Sens. Orrin Hatch and Bob Bennett, who both supported the $700 billion TARP bailout, and protested GOP Gov. Jon Huntsman’s decision to accept $1.6 billion in porky stimulus funds.

In Sacramento, Tea Party organizer Mark Meckler singled out California GOP chair Ron Nehring for waffling on proposed $16 billion tax hikes. The crowd of 5,000 greeted Nehring – who unsuccessfully tried to hitch his wagon to the Tea Party movement – with a roar of boos and catcalls. Speaker after speaker lambasted Republican Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger for abandoning fiscal conservative principles. The loudest chant of the day: “Throw them out.” …”

“…What resonated on Tax Day were non-partisan calls to roll back pork, hold the line on taxing and spending, end the endless government bailouts, and stop the congressional steamrollers who have pushed through mountains of legislation without deliberation. This is a teachable moment for GOP public relations peddlers in Washington. While they search for the Holy Grail of Re-branding in tony salons and country club conferences, the agenda for 2010 is smacking them in the face. It’s the three T’s, stupid: Too Many Taxes, Trillions in Debt, and Transparency. …”

Stay tuned to the Fresh Tea blog, where you can meet organizers from across the country. Check in with TCOT Report and Smart Girl Politics for more grass-roots organizing.

(On a parallel track, fellow Fox News colleague Glenn Beck has spearheaded “We Surround Them” parties scheduled across the country today. I’m hearing from lots of first-time activists who have found overlapping networks. The same principles that unite the “We Surround Them” effort also are in sync with the tax revolters. Synergy is good. We need every body and mind in motion we can get.)

In the meantime, other local Tea Party events keep rolling on.

No duh! White House “worried about bailout backlash”

By Michelle Malkin  

“…With a few notable exceptions, the national media has ignored the tax revolt movement against the porkulus package, omni-pork spending bill, and bottomless bailouts that began in Seattle on President’s Day; continued in Denver on the day of the Generational Theft Act signing; spread to Mesa AZ during President Obama’s massive mortgage entitlement push; spurred protest in Overland Park KS; and evolved into the Tea Party movement across the country.

But local politicians and local newspapers/TV are definitely on notice. Thousands of folks converging in places like St. Louis (1,500), Greenville (2,000), Fullerton (est. 15,000), and Cincinnati (5,000) are getting harder to ignore.

And now, it seems, word is getting around in Washington. The White House, the NYTimes (which has mocked the tax revolters) tells us, is worried about a populist backlash against bailout-mania. Naw. Really? You don’t say: …”

“An act of generational theft;” Update: Ugh. Not another Gang of 14! Update Corker’s office clarifies

By Michelle Malkin

 

“…Here are two staunch conservatives in the Senate who are looking out for you.

U.S. Sens. Jim Inhofe and Tom Coburn weighed in Thursday against a massive package of spending and tax cuts designed to stimulate the economy.

Joining a group of fellow Republican senators, the two Oklahomans questioned whether many of the areas funded in the $800 billion-plus measure would actually end up providing a much-needed economic boost.

“We know what works,” Inhofe said, citing previous packages that succeeded.

He repeated his previous comments of disappointment that spending on infrastructure projects such as highways is not a bigger percentage of the bill.

Citing the package’s historic price tag, Inhofe said that each of the 3 million to 4 million jobs expected to be created would cost about $295,000.

Coburn also said spending on certain areas would help but predicted 80 percent of the money in the bill would not stimulate the economy.

“This is about spending money we don’t have for things we don’t need,” he said.

Coburn said cities across Oklahoma have prepared their own lists of projects they hope to get funded.

“Everybody wants their share,” he said.

Future generations will be denied wealth, Coburn said, if the bill passes.

“This bill is a generational theft bill,” he said.  …”

From the Boston Tea Party to your neighborhood pork protest

By Michelle Malkin

“…In Schmucky Schumer’s world, these American taxpayers don’t exist. A big crowd of them gathered in Seattle this afternoon to raise their voices in opposition to the trillion-dollar, pork-filled Generational Theft Act of 2009 — which will be signed into law by the blind President “There are no no earmarks” Obama. Thanks to Zac Petersen for the photos. It took just one person — blogger Liberty Belle — to get the ball rolling. She writes: “Make no mistake, the President will be signing that bill tomorrow, I have no illusions that he will actually listen to us. BUT, maybe, just maybe we can start a movement that will snowball across the nation and get people out of their homes, meeting each other and working together to redirect this country towards its truly radical founding principles of individual liberty and freedom. Maybe people will wake up slowly at first, and then quickly when they realize the urgency needed.”

IN CONGRESS, JULY 4, 1776

The unanimous Declaration of the thirteen united States of America

“…We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. …”

Taxpayer revolt: Porkulus protest in Seattle, Obama to sign theft act in Denver

By Michelle Malkin

 

“…There should be one of these in every town in America. What are you doing? Liberty Belle announces a taxpayer protest against the porkulus tomorrow in Seattle:

The protest against the porkulus is on for President’s Day!

Date: Monday, February 16th
Time: 12:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Where: Westlake Park in downtown Seattle, 401 Pine St., in the open area by the big arch.

The idea is to use what we’ve learned about dissent over the last eight years. We need loud protests with lots noise and visuals. So, what should you bring?

Bring AS MANY PEOPLE AS YOU CAN! Bring your families, your friends, neighbors, bring everyone!

Bring SIGNS!! Get those craft making juices flowing and make signs and banners and pictures and paintings. Just imagine that you are a left-wing college student with nothing else to do and that should help you get started!

Bring something to sit on and appropriate clothing.

Most importantly, JUST BRING IT!!!

If you can get a real pig roast going, all the better! …”

More scenes from Mesa: “I need a beachfront condo, Mr. President!”

By Michelle Malkin

“…I love this. At the Mesa AZ protest against President Obama today, KFYI listeners brought signs telling Santa Obama what they wanted from the savior-based economy. Hats off to KFYI’s Bruce Jacobs and J.D. Hayworth. Reader Al Swanson sent these priceless pics. …”

Rebel Yell: Taxpayers Revolt Against Gimme-Mania

By Michelle Malkin

“…Plans are underway for anti-stimulus-palooza protests in Overland Park, Kansas, Nashville, and New York — home of smug Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer. Schumer’s derisive comment on the Senate floor about the “chattering classes” who oppose reckless spending has not been forgotten or forgiven. The insult spurred central Kentucky talk show host Leland Conway to organize a pork rind drive. Angry taxpayers bombarded the senator’s office with 1,500 bags of cracklins.

Disgraced Democrat Sen. John Edwards was right about one thing: There are two Americas. One America is full of moochers, big and small, corporate and individual, trampling over themselves with their hands out demanding endless bailouts. The other America is full of disgusted, hard-working citizens getting sick of getting played for chumps and punished for practicing personal responsibility.

Now is the time for all good taxpayers to turn the tables on free-lunching countrymen and their enablers in Washington. Community organizing helped propel Barack Obama to the White House. It can work for fiscal conservatism, too. …”

Tea Party U.S.A.: The movement grows

By Michelle Malkin

“…Seattle on Monday. Denver on Tuesday. Mesa AZ on Wednesday. Overland Park, Kansas today. What a week, huh? We got the anti-stimulus, anti-entitlement protest ball rolling — and now the movement, spurred further by CNBC host Rick Santelli’s call for a “Chicago Tea Party,” is really taking off.

David Hogberg at Investor’s Business Daily has a nice piece out today spotlighting the growing taxpayer revolt the rest of the MSM won’t cover. He interviewed our registered commenters Liberty Belle Keli Carender, who spearheaded the Seattle anti-pork protest, and HuskerGirl Amanda Grosserode, who organized today’s anti-stimulus demonstration against Democrat Rep. Dennis Moore in Overland Park, KS.

I’m happy to report on several new protest events now on the docket. …”
