The Romney 2011 Tax Return - a FairTax teachable moment

Posted on October 21, 2012 at 4:06pm 0 Comments



Romney's Gross Income was 13.7M and his bottom line liability from line 61, form 1040 = 1.5M for a 10.9% effective rate under the current system.  This is a simplistic way of looking at effective taxes which combines earned and unearned income taxes, thereby taking us out of the “Warren Buffett” discussion.



The Romneys famously gave 30% of their income to charity last year which would have left 9.6M to spend. Assume they put another 30% into savings and investments, net…

Just Pass the Damned Bill Already

All over the country including in the halls of Congress, Americans are beginning to see the Income Tax as a failed system that cries out for fundamental reform.  The question is no longer, how can the Income Tax be improved, but rather how can we reduce collecting revenue to its simplest, fairest form?  In 2005, then President, Bush, convened a panel to answer that question.  His charge to them included the requirement that whatever they came up with must encourage economic growth.  As with…

Critics of the FairTax love to beat us up about the exclusive rate being 30%. Has anyone ever figured out what the exclusive rate is for the income tax? It turns out in the affirmative. Beacon Hill Institute published in 2007, in a paper titled What Rate Really Works? that the inclusive rate would be 32.53% and the exclusive rate would be 48.22%.…

FairTax - No Brainer

Posted on March 25, 2012 at 7:51am 1 Comment

We all have to make tough choices in life.  Choosing between the current income tax and the FairTax is not that tough.

How would you like to get your entire paycheck, for an immediate 10% raise, maybe more?

How would you like to never have to file another income tax form for the rest of your life?

How would you like to see a number for the cost of running the federal government on every cash register receipt?

How would you like to see trillions of dollars returned…

Well, it's been very last minute for us... we have a lot going on in our personal lives, but feel this is important. The week before the rally, we had already had plans to be in western TN for a hog rally there, working with Phil Hoffman who is creating a FT event on the end of the HOG rally. It's about half way to MO. We're hoping the raffle bike will be done to trailer it to these events, as it is a major fundraiser for the consortium. Because we are traveling long distance, we don't know how many will be joining us, but have found even a small group of bikes with FairTax flags gain attention. We have a stop in Springfield MO where Jack Edge is working with a FairTax supporting bike shop to combine their bike nite with a pre-rally on Thurs. the 11th. In Columbia, we will have a booth at the event, and perhaps a breakout session about our program - our goals are education & events, working with dist'ing supplies at cost where needed. We have more info at our website, www.grassrootsfreedomride.com but truthfully, this thing has grown faster than i can keep up! We won't be having a specific ride or event the day of the rally. We had a poker run in SC prior to their 3 hour rally, but that takes local time and manpower to organize. Hopefully we'll grow chapters along our route to take the FairTax message to bikers who are inherently freedom lovers - that starts with economic freedom.
