Fair Tax Nation

Replace All Federal Taxes on Income with the Fair Tax Act , HR 25



WRITING TIPS


The FairTax has no space between fair & tax.

  •  ... that's what makes it a trademark.


Politicians and Editors prefer letters that are personal and written from the heart.


Beware of a letter that is too long:

  • A "Letter to the Editor" should normally have fewer than 200 words.
  • Think of the available space in the paper.
  • Some editors may treat a longer letter as a "guest column".
  • Consider breaking up a long letter into a series of more focused letters.
  • Consider adapting a long letter into a short speech.

Always consider your target audience:


  • Consider: age, education, interest, familiarity with tax issues, etc.
  • Adjust your rant's vocabulary, length, and level of detail accordingly.

Remember to KISS your rant:

  • Keep It Simple, Stupid!
  • That way you won't lose the attention of the reader.

The "5 X 5" Trick:

  • 5 paragraphs of 5 sentences each.
  • Each sentence tells a story unto itself.

Send letters to local business owners:

  • Call local businesses to get the owner's name.
  • Include a "looking forward to hearing from you" paragraph with your contact info.
  • Keep a record of the letters sent, any return calls, and your follow up calls.

Develop your FairTax "Elevator Speech":

  • Choose a topic that is important to you.
  • Keep it short but cover the basics:
    • The FairTax is a progressive national sales tax on new goods and services.
    • The FairTax replaces all Federal income taxes (personal, corporate, gift, estate, capital gains, FICA).
    • The FairTax fires the IRS!


  • Write it down.
  • Practice it in front of a mirror and then in front of a friend.
  • Be prepared to answer questions: carry tri-fold brochures or business cards to give away and invite people to meetings.
  • Use it whenever the opportunity arises: elevators, checkout lines, waiting rooms, at the Post Office, etc.
