Editor, Times-Union:
Fair tax is the only way to defang the IRS.
The flat tax is not the answer. Our existing tax code is the flat tax with 100 years of changes. Congress loves to hand out favors to powerful groups. These favors add up over time to make our tax code complicated. If Congress passed a flat tax it would take no time for them to make it as complicated as what we have today.
The fair tax is a national sales tax that replaces the national income tax. It takes away the IRS and Washington’s ability to impose complicated tax regulations on Americans. Fairtax.org has the fair tax story.
For the first time the House Ways & Means Committee will vote on the Fair Tax between late October and November. FairTaxNation.com has the phone numbers you can call to make a difference.
