One of the provisions of the proposed fair tax is the ability of the government to adjust the rate to match the needed revenue. The tax can be adjusted up or down to match the needed revenue. Is there any one on this green ... More ›

The fair tax exempts business purchases from being taxed, it also doesnt tax used goods. Does that mean that I can open a business that buys cars, then sell them used tax free? The devil is in the details with the fair ... More ›

Elect responsible, common sense conservatives to all offices and solve the problem. Whatever the solution, flat or the fair tax, the initial rates, until spending is controlled, will be high. As long as the under-informed and ... More ›

Fair tax is not fair. Just another progressive tax system which has a rebate system. Flat tax with no exemptions is fair.

Our federal tax code is broken. There have been more than two changes to it EVERY congressional day for 20 years. It is so complicated that many IRS employees can’t explain it accurately. It is 72,000 pages long. A tax code ... More ›

The fair tax rate is 23 percent. Since this is an inclusive rate, the exclusive would be about 30 percent. Since the tax would be included in the sale price, state sales tax would automatically rise. Beware of the dog that ... More ›

Im a fair taxer, i support tax reform for all the reasons mentioned. There are a lot of tax deferred dollars that would get freed up, and automatically hit the ecoonomy, trillions in 401k's I'd forsee a huge black market ... More ›
