The FairTax was born of American innovation and the belief that there is a better way to fund the federal government. The FairTax represents economic freedom for every American, no matter what political beliefs you may hold.

In an unprecedented move toward real tax reform, the FairTax abolishes all federal personal and corporate income taxes. It also eliminates the gift, estate, capital gains, and alternative minimum taxes. Going a step further, the FairTax also considers seniors and retirees by eliminating taxes on Social Security and Medicare. And if you are your own boss, you’ll take comfort in knowing the FairTax eliminates self-employment taxes, too. The Fair Tax Act removes all of the obstacles to economic prosperity and replaces them with one simple, visible, federal retail sales tax, a tax administered primarily by existing state sales tax authorities.
