How would Fair Tax affect Landlords

We have rentals and are wondering how FT would affect our bottom line?  I know we would have to pay the 23% but what would happen to the rest of our deductions.  As you know we take a deduction for…Continue

Judy, My comment is more lengthy than that which FairTax Nation will allow for comments. If you will e-mail me at popcornco@gmail.com, I will e-mail you back with my response. This comment would also apply to Tony Leach, as I will copy him the e-mail I send to you.

Hi Judy!

It depends on if the tax is imbedded -- the price on the "shelf" includes the tax or if it is added at the "cash register".

Which ever method is used the tax paid is the same and the tax would be visible on the receipt so people would know exactly how much they are paying in taxes.

When you sell you property, there would be no federal taxes due. You would keep 100% of your money -- except for state taxes. We are working to eliminate them too.

Keep asking questions!!!

I totally agree with your analysis. I will wait until you receive an answer from KW before I add any more comments, other than the following. Like you I am very concerned about the impact the FairTax will have upon the rental market as a whole. As you know, there is very little embedded Federal taxes in rental properties. Therefore there is not much room to lower rents. Most of the taxes that owners incur, are state and local Real Property taxes, so there is very little wiggle room to lower rents. Hence the FairTax would create a significant tax on top of already depressed rents, which could have a devastating affect upon the rental market.

Karen Walby has responded to your question. Please check the Main Page, then select "Communicate & Blog" for her answer. My previous answer to you was only partially correct. I must say I not only do I not like Ms. Walby's response (although I'm sure she is correct), I was very disappointed in the definition of rental income as now being considered a housing service. It appears they have taken an "Investment" which is currently considered and reported as "income," and have now defined as a housing "service," thereby, making it subject to the FairTax. This revolting development, does not deter my enthusiasm for the FairTax, but it does make me wonder what other types of income producing investments are now considered a service.

Perhaps this is one of those areas of the current proposed legislation H.R. 25, that needs further review and perhaps be amended before the final bill is adopted. I plan to pursue that issue, as it appears to me to be contradictory to so many of the things the FairTax promotes, with the idea of a consumption tax being better than an income tax, yet (at least in this example) they are just shifting what was previously taxed as income to a service and now taxing the same income as a consumption tax.
