Tax reform has become an important issue in dealing with the recession and job creation. There is a plan now in committee in the House of Representatives referred to as HR 25 and is fair to all Americans. It is the Fair Tax (not the Flat Tax) and is supported by the best economists in our nation. The Fair Tax is a consumption tax of 23 percent on new goods and services and would eliminate the IRS and all taxes associated with that agency such as the income tax, payroll tax, capital gains tax, the alternative minimum tax, corporate tax, estate and gift taxes. The imbedded tax of 22 percent on all new goods would also be eliminated. American workers would receive their full paycheck. The Fair Tax would bring millions of high paying manufacturing jobs back to America, boosting the economy, and improving the standard of living for the poor and middle class and eliminate tax breaks for the wealthy. The poor would pay 0% tax through a rebate program. The Fair Tax is also revenue neutral.
