What would a national sales tax (FAIRTAX HR25) look like? The reality is, it would look like the consumption tax already on the books and working in 45 states today! Only difference, each man women and child would not be taxed up to the poverty level of spending on life's necessities defined as the package of new goods and services needed in that month to live their life. Only 5 states do not currently have a consumption or sales tax. Alaska, Delaware, Montana, New Hampshire, and Oregon. Folks in these states would experience a sales tax (FAIRTAX HR25) as something new. So for those who doubt a consumption or sales tax system is unworkable I submit it is working very well in 45 states today. And I know for a fact that the sales tax in my home state of Michigan is the tax which brings in the majority of state revenue. Doby!
