WHO We Are
FairTax DeKalb is a local group of supporters of The FairTax Plan for tax reform, a progressive national sales tax that abolishes personal and corporate income taxes, payroll taxes (FICA), capital gains taxes, gift taxes, and estate taxes.WHAT We Do
Activities include: Educating friends and neighbors about The FairTax Plan, advocating its passage by writing letters to our congressmen and newspaper editors, attending tea parties, and proudly displaying our support with t-shirts and bumper stickers.WHERE We Are
DeKalb County is located in the northeast corner of Alabama. Local communities include: Fort Payne, Collinsville, Crossville, Dawson, Fyffe, Geraldine, Grove Oak, Hammondville, Henagar, Hopewell, Ider, Lakeview, Mentone, Pine Ridge, Powell, Rainsville, Shiloh, Sylvania, and Valley Head.WHEN We Meet
We now have a regular meeting on the fourth Monday of each month at The Golden Rule BBQ in Fort Payne (directions and maps
). Eatin' at 6 PM, meetin' at 7 PM.
We're closely linked to the Marshall County FairTax group, which meets on the second Tuesday of each month at the Outlaw Steakhouse
in Guntersville, Alabama. Their meeting starts at 7 PM — or come early for dinner and socializing at 6 PM. WHY It's Important
The FairTax Plan simplifies the tax code by getting rid of loopholes and exemptions for privileged groups. Because powerful Washington lobbyists object to this loss of special treatment and because many legislators profit from corrupting the current system, we have a big fight ahead. Only an active grassroots movement can bring about the kind of change we need.HOW To Get Involved
There are so many ways to get involved: From simply signing an on-line petition to organizing a FairTax rally, there's bound to be something that fits your interests, talents, and free time.
