Fair Tax passed to House Ways and Means for up or down vote, eliminate IRS, waste and abuse

Dear over-burdened Taxpayer,

We’re close.

Close to an up or down vote.

Close to eliminating the IRS.

And closer to making April 15 just another spring day.

That’s right, by passing the FairTax Plan® we end the IRS and restore economic freedom, and freedom from intimidation, for every single American.

That’s because the House Committee on Ways and Means is going to vote the FairTax plan up or down.

This historic vote will represent the FIRST time a true tax reform plan will be voted on by a body of Congress since the 16th Amendment was passed, enacting the current income tax system in 1913.

This is our chance to fundamentally change Washington!

Americans For Fair Taxation is committed to building a national grassroots army of Citizen Patriots committed to passing the FairTax Plan.  Are you also committed?

Will you help us accomplish this goal?

Please forward this email to 25 or 50 or even 100 friends right now!  Encourage them to add their name to our Rapid Response Force email list. They can also learn about the FairTax Plan that will change their country and their pocketbooks, forever.

What is the Fair Tax?

The FairTax is fair. One flat 23% rate for all Americans.

The FairTax replaces federal income taxes, including personal, estate, gift, capital gains, Social Security, Medicare, self-employment and corporate taxes.

The FairTax Plan eliminates the IRS. If you haven’t noticed lately, the IRS is completely out of control; they have lied to the American people, they have abused their power, they have leaked confidential taxpayer information, they have targeted political enemies, veterans organizations, and one top official “plead the 5th Amendment” before a Congressional Oversight Hearing. 

It’s way past time to eliminate one of the most obtrusive and dangerous federal agencies ever created.

  1. No-one else except the FT peddlers have heard anything about an upcoming “vote” – this sounds like more FT “Hype & Change”.

    The “Fair Tax” is a Fraud – we need a 10% “Tithe”!

    I am a retired tax lawyer/CPA, with no financial stake in ANY tax system. I can support every comment I make – for supporting details, call Stephen C. Eldridge tel. 423-532-7337.
    The so-called “Fair Tax” (“FT”) is a fraud – it is MORE WEALTH REDISTRIBUTION, AND a financial SCAM.

    In their own words, FT proudly advertises that it is MORE PROGRESSIVE (INCREASES WELFARE).The Prebate is advertised as merely repaying the poor for any FT they pay, but actually would pay them far more than any FT they might pay and also gives the working poor free SS/Medi. The Prebate is NOT a refund of FT paid, it is a new $600B ENTITLEMENT, leaving many Americans receiving a monthly check from the federal govt – a very bad idea for those of us who are not Socialists. More poor people will be receiving free SS/Medi.

    The FT hits us with a 40-70% in-your-face retail sales tax that would spark a taxpayer rebellion that would destroy our 70% retail-sales-sensitive economy. 40% = 30% FT + e.g., 10% State sale sales tax and 70% is the rate needed at a sample 30% FT evasion rate (the FT incredibly assumes ZERO evasion and ZERO intentional reduction in spending and ZERO migration from new to used goods).

    IN ADDITION to that 40-70% tax, the FT contains several HIDDEN TAXES. 1) FT’s 30% rate is really 42+%; the 12+% is hidden by having fed + S/L govts paying FT – they must get that money from you. 2) The initial 30% rate is 1-5% short and that plus any other revenue shortfall will have to be made up by raising more FT (or a NEW Income Tax), 3) The fed budget will rise for a) SS benefits because the FT-guaranteed SS COLA of almost 30%, b) fraudulent new SS benefits, c) COLA’s payable to all federal retirees – and more FT (or a NEW Income Tax) we be required to fund these.

    The NEW IRS (i.e., the STAA) may well be far worse, far more invasive than today’s IRS b(the buyer is liable to pay FT and get/show a receipt) – we may well have to file an “Annual FT Summary”.

    We may well wind up with BOTH a NEW Income Tax AND the FT.

    Seniors will start to pay for SS/Medi again and will pay a 2nd-3rd tax on their earnings. Middle class seniors will pay more tax under FT and will lose purchasing power because of the 15-30% price increase.

    What we need is a Flat Income Tax with No Deductions, No Exemptions, No Credits and a 10% rate, with business income taxed to shareholders on a very simple basis (i.e., no corporate income tax) – See H.R. 1040, but with changes as noted here. Call your representatives in Congress and let them know that this is what you want.


  2. This guy should read the details — both Fairtax and flat tax are goofy frauds. Flat tax is as flat as Pike;s Peak, its not even flat. Want to see Mitt Romney cry? Make him pay the same rate as a self employed plumber. Flat tax simply exempts trilions of dollars of income by declaring it;s not taxable income. That’;s not flat. Its a fraud.

    Fairtax is another fraud — but more elaborate. I;ve offered 50K for years now, if anyone, include Eldridge, can show ONE page, just ONE PAGE of that 22 million in research proving Fairtax is a “very simple personal retail consumption tax” to replace all other fed taxes.

    No such research exists — whatsoever. WHy can’t anyone show a page of that 22 million in research? Same reason Bernie Maddoff couldnt show a page of research.

    Google Fiartax fraud or see this. http://fairtaxgoofy.blogspot.com/

    We need a new tax code, but as long as suckers like Stephen are too stupid to read the fine print, we won’t get one. Fairtax and FLat tax arent going anywhere, its likely the scum sucking hustlers than made them up have no intention of passing them. But by pushing for fake “reform: these lying bastards confuse fools like Stephen and make it that much harder to get a better tax system.

    First, quit being idiots. Read the fine print, and quit believing lying bastards



  3. The writer of the editorial said the IRS has lied to the American people. What about Americans For Fair Taxation? They have lied also. They said this is coming up to vote on House Ways and Means Committee. I looked up the committee and there is nothing scheduled there. No vote, no hearings, no plans. All LIES by Americans For Fair Taxation. When this organization such as AFFT starts lying about a vote, they are really desperate.
