The Fair Tax Book: Saying Goodbye to the Income Tax and the IRS by Neal Boortz, John Linder

Wouldn't you love to abolish the IRS ...
Keep all the money in your paycheck ...
Pay taxes on what you spend, not what you earn ...
And eliminate all the fraud, hassle, and waste of our current system?

Then the FairTax is for you. In the face of the outlandish American tax burden, talk-radio firebrand Neal Boortz and Congressman John Linder are leading the charge to phase out our current, unfair system and enact the FairTax Plan, replacing the federal income tax and withholding system with a simple 23 percent retail sales tax on new goods and services. This dramatic revision of the current system, which would eliminate the reviled IRS, has already caught fire in the American heartland, with more than six hundred thousand taxpayers signing on in support of the plan.

As Boortz and Linder reveal in this first book on the FairTax, this radical but eminently sensible plan would end the annual national nightmare of filing income tax returns, while at the same time enlarging the federal tax base by collecting sales tax from every retail consumer in the country. The FairTax, they argue, would transform the fearsome bureaucracy of the IRS into a more transparent, accountable, and equitable tax collection system. Among other benefits, it will:

  • Make America's tax code truly voluntary, without reducing revenue
  • Replace today's indecipherable tax code with one simple sales tax
  • Protect lower-income Americans by covering the tax on basic necessities
  • Eliminate billions of dollars in embedded taxes we don't even know we're paying
  • Bring offshore corporate dollars back into the U.S. economy

Endorsed by scores of leading economists and supported by a huge and growing grassroots movement, the FairTax Plan could revolutionize the way America pays for itself. In this straight-talking book, Neal Boortz and John Linder show you how it would work—and how you can help make it happen.

I really enjoyed the Fair Tax book because of it's stimulating and provocative ideas. If the concept of instituting a fair tax in the federal government took hold, we may be able to stimulate our economy and promote the use of savings accounts. Great read for students of the economy and government!! It is also an easy read.

Then this is the book for you. More than a way of changing how the federal government is funded. More than doing away with the April 15th blues. The revenue neutral and highly progressive Fair Tax (currently a bill in congress) is away of citizens regaining control over government. It puts you in control rather than being controlled. Just look at your paycheck. The part where the deductions are listed. Look at that total. Imagine it in your pocket ready to save, invest, or spend. Imagine living in a country where you decide how much tax you will pay out of that paycheck. Why did I re-list The Fair Tax book in the "Also Recommended" section. After reading it I started buying and passing out copies. After reading you'll want to both keep a copy and pass it on to others. Michael Krabb

America has a huge inventory of foreclosed homes, and a wealth of talent ..It follows that an incentive to buy used product would clear that glut, put tradesmen back to work. That is just one benefit that should compel the reader to support this idea!!

A well written and easy to understand explaination of the way our government manipulates the system and the uneducated! Most people can learn to be anything they choose but few choose to study the complexities of the tax code. This leaves them at the mercy of lobbyists, government officials and special interest groups. Take the power from them and put it back into the hands of the populace!

I firmly believe that this one piece of legislation could turn both our economy and our country around. It just makes too much sense. The only problem with it is that it will take control of the purse strings away from partisan politicians and back in the hands of the people. That is why this legislation faces such a tough battle. When was the last time congress voted to limit its own power?
