Tinkering with the Code Can’t Fix this Problem
by Daniel J. Pilla
As the current IRS scandal continues to unfold, cries are rising from quarters throughout Washington for “reforming the IRS.” I have said many times that tax reform cannot solve the problem of IRS abuse. The system is built on an unsound foundation. And when the foundation of a structure is not sound, the only solution is to bulldoze it and start over again.…Continue

One of the linchpins of the arguments against the FairTax is the supposed loss of the mortgage interest deduction for middle-income homeowners. The answer should look like this:
Not only are the benefits of the mortgage interest deduction (MID) still in place, the FairTax adds a mortgage principle deduction as well. That's something that the current system just doesn't offer. Let's take a look...
Under the current system, a taxpayer deducts personal exemptions for him/herself…Continue

In an artical on Fox News, conservatives in Washington are in disagreement when it comes to the Marketplace Fairness Act 68-27, proposing that internet retailers should collect sales taxes on the sales that they make across state lines. Senator Ted Cruz calls it a "mad bill" saying it puts too much of a burden on small businesses to implement. Reagan-era economist…Continue

I'm self-employed and travel all over the country doing work for various clients. I drive a Chevy Express cargo van and most of the time I'm pulling my 6x10 cargo trailer. I would love to have both decked out with vinyl graphics advertising the FairTax. I just can't afford it myself. Maybe a slogan like "Keep your entire paycheck!"? I live in the Flint, MI (read: union country) area.
I also own the web site…Continue

Good morning Fair Tax friends!

Dear fellow FairTaxers,
Our founding fathers instinctively knew the evils of an income tax. They knew from history how such a system could easily be manipulated to pit one group against another.
More importantly, they knew how an income tax could infringe on individual freedom. Freedom was the most important element in our country's founding. So, they prohibited an income tax in our constitution.
But, after several attempts in the late 1800s by politicians who…Continue

If you are like most folks, on February 3, 2013, you were glued to your TV set, watching a great Super Bowl. Parties with friends, and rivals, across the land celebrated the game, whether your team won or lost. And this was a good thing, because, if not for the Super Bowl, February 3, 2013 would have been a sad day indeed!!
It was the One Hundredth anniversary of the ratification of the Sixteenth Amendment, which allowed the first constitutional income tax in our Nation’s…Continue
Can anyone point me to postings focused on implementing the Fair tax? It seems to me there are numerous logistical issues. For instance:
1. The federal sales tax is collected at the point of sale, the tax collected is forwarded to the state for subsequent transfer to the treasury, is that correct? If so what about states that currently have no sales tax collection procedures? How long and at what cost will it take for these states to design and implement the required software?…Continue

The mortgage tax relief is mainly the advantage offered to mortgage holders, who have been making payments on the mortgage interest. The relief offered is mainly on the basis of the interest paid by the homeowner. The relief is offered almost on every type of mortgage starting from the mortgage on a new home, mortgage taken out for home improvements, mortgage taken…Continue
I heard a recent comment on a podcast by Joel Osteen that I feel is so pertinent. He stated: "Life is not fair, but God is fair."
I am convinced that God has brought the Fair Tax movement to provide the solution to our country's desperate financial crisis. We all need to pray "big" for such a big solution. Remember God can move mountains and this is exactly what this country needs right now.
Go Fair Tax!!

This is an open letter to a new generation of founding fathers who I hope will stand up and “pledge their lives, their fortunes, and their sacred honor” to the cause of a restored Republic of the United States of America. I am asking for leaders to lead; people with wealth, name recognition, and the trust of We the People to lead us into a revival of the liberty once known by citizens of America. It is time for a political party to represent…Continue

Free Market Misunderstood
Free Market or Crony Capitalism? Most people think of these two terms as the same thing when they are as different as night and day. For 150 years our great nation prospered under the free market system and became the largest economy in world history. Doing more good for more people and creating more wealth than mankind has ever seen. The last hundred years is where the real mess began. Under the guise of helping or saving us our glorious government has made a…

The American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 is yet another major tax reform bill that doesn’t really do much to reform taxes. True, some of the key provisions of the Bush-era tax cuts are now permanent (to the extent that any tax provision is ever permanent today). However, the Act still leaves in place far too many temporary provisions. These have…Continue

AMT “INDEXING” IS NOW PERMANENT
No More Annual Scramble for a “Patch”
by Daniel J. Pilla
One of the maddening things about tax policy in the past eleven years was Congress’s unwillingness to permanently index the Alternative Minimum Tax (AMT) exemption levels to inflation. For more than a decade, Congress merely passed an annual last minute “patch,” which simply extended the temporary rules for…Continue
