This is an email I received tonight from Americans for Prosperity. This may be good not only to attend and support but to talk about the FAIRTAX. Did any of you get this notice? You may want to go to the web site for updates.

Date: April 15, 2009
Time: 12 noon-1 pm

Place: UPDATE! Due to the fact that the Center City Park is privately owned, the Tea Party will be held at the Governmental Plaza in downtown Greensboro, near the Courthouse.

The simpliest way to state it is that the FairTax simple moves the location of taxation from the front of your income where it isn't seen to the end of your consumption where it is seen.

First, ignore the standard deduction/personal exemption of the current system and likewise the FairTax prebate. They serve the same purpose but the prebate is larger (better) at every family size. So to compare, just focus on marginal rates. The lowest permanent rate today is 15%. Add in 7.65% paid by an employee in payroll taxes and you have a total of 22.65%. Since rent is paid with aftertax nondeductible dollars today, you must earn $130 before taxes for every $100 in rent. The FairTax simply allows you to take home the entire $130 and assuming NO pretax reduction in prices, the total after tax cost is $130. There is zero impact. However we have not included the benefits of removed embedded costs including the employers share of payroll tax, more control over your entire tax burden increased job opportunities (greater demand creates opportunity for higher earnings), increased productivity from new capital put to use, etc.

This same comparison can be made for food, clothes etc. The FairTax simply moves the point of taxation with many, many other benefits that spring from that simple action.

Doug, et. al, there is no specific discussion of or special treatment of rents in the bill. Maintaining a property for the purpose of renting it is a business service, and as such, rents would be taxed. The business entity, and in many cases, the individual, holding the property are engaging in a business transaction, so those businesses and/or individuals would be responsible for collecting a FairTax on the rents and remitting it as all other businesses would. However, as always noted, those property holding entities would not be taxed on "income" and therefore they do not have to consider back side taxation in determining rent levels. Also, most property holding entities purchase used homes to rent out. Those used home purchases would not be taxed, and then the "service" of renting it out would. In the case of new construction, i.e. apartment complexes built specifically for renting out, the materials used would not be taxed to the builder (as with single family new construction), and since there is no "sale" of the property (it is placed into service when it opens for rent) then the rents are the end product, the "service" and therefore would include the FairTax. Again, with no worry of back side income taxes, the property holder can price the rents accordingly. There IS special consideration in the bill pertaining to "financing of lease contracts" which may, and I repeat, may, come into play for the "lease purchase" or "rent-to-own" contracts for housing that some people like to do. I do not fully understand these instruments, but my take is that, regardless the contract type, the "rent" portion of any instrument must include a FairTax and be collected and remitted as such. I welcome correction if any of this is incorrect.

The actual bill chapter 1, section 2-Definitions, (14) (A) (i). Leaseholds are taxable as a service so I would say yes rents you pay are taxable. Also check the Plain English version under taxable property and it also says a leasehold or any term or rents. This is just my interpretation so don't let it be the final word. Keep checking.

There is no INCOME tax. It is a one time tax on purchases of new goods and services.
Comment by Kathy Lynch on March 4, 2009 at 6:45am
Good question Doug. How will any unearned income be taxed under this plan? I looked in my Fair Tax book and could not find anything specific to this question, so I emailed Neal Boortz. Will let you know what I find out.
Comment by Douglas L. Harris on March 4, 2009 at 1:04am
This may not be the correct place to ask this question, but here goes anyway. Can anyone tell me if rent is taxed under the FairTax? I haven't been able to find anyone who can answer this question. Is it considered a taxable service?
