A
PETITION TO CONGRESS

to replace our complex
income tax with a simple federal sales tax

The present 67,000 pages of burdensome tax legislation allow so many exceptions and exclusions and so much favoritism that it cannot possibly be made fair and simple. This has driven companies and individual bank accounts offshore and encouraged non-compliance costing billions in uncollected taxes. The untaxed underground economy may be near half a trillion dollars annually adding further to the burden of honest and complying citizens. The pimps, prostitutes, pushers of drugs and all the dealers under the table need to help carry our federal tax burden.

FairTax (H.R. 25 & S. 13) would replace the unfixable I.R.S. Code with a simple 23% federal sales tax on new goods and services. This would eliminate all federal withholding, all corporate and individual income taxes, estate, gift, and capital gains taxes. This FairTax progressively untaxes the poor altogether with a rebate. It encourages untaxed corporations to American shores greatly expanding employment opportunities. This would fill our shelves and showrooms with far less expensive goods. “Made in America” can become popular again.

H.R. 25 now has 62 co-sponsors in the House of Representatives and eight senate co-sponsors. For much more complete and timely information on this historic legislation, go to www.fairtax.org and www.fairtaxnation.com.

Please sign this petition and forward it to your voting friends for their signatures; we need many thousands of signatures nationwide. Numbers of voters with ZIP codes of the politicians’ own congressional districts is what impresses politicians. So get your groups and friends to
sign and give their ZIP codes; politicos tend to be biased against FairTax since it takes manipulative power from them and returns the power to the people. We need to show the politicos that we are serious when we say we are fed up with the manipulative games they and their lobbyists play with the present I.R.S. code. When taxpayers learn of FairTax, they generally see that it really does return power to the people. This is worth working for!

To Replace Income Tax With Sales
Tax

About

In my old age I have already seen far too much of the IRS complexity that allows politicians and lobbyists to keep too much power from the people. So now I work extensively to get the FairTax (H.R. 25 and S. 13) law passed in order to replace the federal income tax with a federal sales tax. This progressive tax simplifies life for all, broadens the base of taxpayers to include everyone who purchases in U.S., makes more money available for the poor and middle classes, and makes it unnecessary for the rich to hire expensive lawyers to game the IRS. Let's all work smart to put the lobbyists and most of the IRS out of business. www.fairtax.org

    The FairTax rate of 23 percent on a total taxable consumption base of $11.244 trillion will generate $2.586 trillion dollars – $358 billion more than the taxes it replaces [BHKPT] (http://snipurl.com/whatratewks ).

    The FairTax has the broadest base and the lowest rate of any single-rate tax reform plan [THBP] (http://snipurl.com/baserate ).

    Real wages are 10.3 percent, 9.5 percent, and 9.2 percent higher in years 1, 10, and 25, respectively than would otherwise be the case [THBNP] (http://snipurl.com/realwages ).

    The economy as measured by GDP is 2.4 percent higher in the first year and 11.3 percent higher by the 10th year than it would otherwise be [ALM] (http://snipurl.com/econbenes ).

    Consumption benefits [ALM] (http://snipurl.com/econbenes ) :

    • Disposable personal income is higher than if the current tax system remains in place: 1.7 percent in year 1, 8.7 percent in year 5, and 11.8 percent in year 10.

    • Consumption increases by 2.4 percent more in the first year, which grows to 11.7 percent more by the tenth year than it would be if the current system were to remain in place.

    • The increase in consumption is fueled by the 1.7 percent increase in disposable (after-tax) personal income that accompanies the rise in incomes from capital and labor once the FairTax is enacted.

    • By the 10th year, consumption increases by 11.7 percent over what it would be if the current tax system remained in place, and disposable income is up by 11.8 percent.

    Over time, the FairTax benefits all income groups. Of 42 household types (classified by income, marital status, age), all have lower average remaining lifetime tax rates under the FairTax than they would experience under the current tax system [KR] (http://snipurl.com/kotcomparetaxrates ).

    Implementing the FairTax at a 23 percent rate gives the poorest members of the generation born in 1990 a 13.5 percent improvement in economic well-being; their middle class and rich contemporaries experience a 5 percent and 2 percent improvement, respectively [JK] (http://snipurl.com/kotftmacromicro ).

    Based on standard measures of tax burden, the FairTax is more progressive than the individual income tax, payroll tax, and the corporate income tax [THBPN] ( http://snipurl.com/lessregress ).

    Charitable giving increases by $2.1 billion (about 1 percent) in the first year over what it would be if the current system remained in place, by 2.4 percent in year 10, and by 5 percent in year 20 [THPDB] (http://snipurl.com/moregiving ).

    On average, states could cut their sales tax rates by more than half, or 3.2 percentage points from 5.4 to 2.2 percent, if they conformed their state sales tax bases to the FairTax base [TBJ] ( http://snipurl.com/staterates ).

    The FairTax provides the equivalent of a supercharged mortgage interest deduction, reducing the true cost of buying a home by 19 percent [WM] (http://snipurl.com/homebenes ).
