Required Reading for the Tax Revolution

Required Reading for the Tax Revolution
FairTax would free markets, individuals from income tax.

August 1, 2005

     In The FairTax Book, Rep. John Linder (R-Ga.) and libertarian talk radio host Neal Boortz offer a witty and straightforward explanation of the political and economic consequences of making April 15 just another day. Published by Regan Books, it hits bookstores this week. And if tax reform is not a hot topic now, then give this book a month on the New York Times bestseller list for things to change.

     The FairTax is a bold idea to replace the income tax with a national sales tax. Whats so bold about it? Not only would the FairTax get the IRS off the nations back, but it would unshackle the economy to grow free of an achievement-punishing income tax.

     The FairTax is a 23 percent sales tax designed to be revenue-neutral, meaning the tax would generate the same amount of revenue as the old system. Why 23 percent? Because once the cost of the income tax was phased out, prices on consumer goods would drop by that amount.
