Can anyone explain the Fair Tax Act to me?

Can anyone explain the Fair Tax Act to me?

The grossly mis-named "Fair Tax" is an attempt by the wealthy to pass their tax burden onto the shoulders of the working poor and middle class. It would replace the income tax and Social Security and Medicare taxes with an enormous 30% (or higher!) national SALES TAX. The proponents like to say that it's a 23% "inclusive" rate but that's just one of many lies about it. It also includes a "prebate" feature -- a check from the government every month that is supposed to be large enough to defray the tax on the essentials of life. However the rate isn't applied evenly to all family members which will leave it wide open for fraud. And with a 30% tax clobbering the poor and middle class, black marketing will become a MAJOR problem.

You can Google "Fair Tax" and read up on their lies. Once you do that, come back and read the rest of this post. Maybe YOU will be able to answer my questions on it satisfactorily. If you can, you WILL be the first!

First off, the "inclusive vs exclusive" issue is smoke and mirrors to make a 30% tax look better. Sales taxes are ALWAYS added on to the selling price so the rate is 30%. Even Neil Boortz grudgingly agrees to this fact if pressed.

It's a GREAT deal if you're wealthy. If you're poor or middle class it will clean your clock.

Answer the following questions, please. If you can, you will be the FIRST "Fair Tax" proponent to do so! I've yet to have a single one of them address them, including Neil Boortz who hung up on me on his radio show and called me an idiot. I've interspersed my own commentary on the issues but feel free to tear it up with FACTUAL information -- platitudes are worthless.

1. If you are going to do away with the IRS, who will collect the tax. (It will still be the IRS, we'll just give them a sweet sounding name.)

2. How do you intend to deal with "prebate" fraud? (The IRS can't track income in real time -- it takes about 18 MONTHS to match W-2s with tax returns in the SAME computer system -- so how will they (or whomever) track family composition in real time?)

3. With a 30% tax on ALL new goods, how do you intend to deal with the massive black marketing that will result. (Any city or state with high tobacco or alcohol taxes will tell you that black marketing is a REAL problem.)

3a. OK, Congress dealt with that with tax stamps like on liquor and tobacco. (How about "The Audit of the New Millenium" now as armies of IRS agents decend on neighborhoods on trash day looking for evidence of untaxed goods. Or worse yet, burst into your home and rummage through your dresser looking for untaxed gruns and sex toys?)

4. How do you intend to deal with financing of the $60,000 tax on a new $200,000 home -- a modest price in much of the nation? (The home is still only worth $200,000 so the lenders won't lend the extra $60,000.)

4a. How will you deal with the collapse of the construction industry that will result from #4. (The resale market will take off, but new construction will grind to a hault.)

5. Ditto for the $6,000 tax on a new $20,000 car. (Same as #4.)

5a. How will you deal with the collapse of the auto industry in the US as a result of #5. (Before long US roads will look like Cuba with ancient pollution-belching relics being pushed along far past their sell-by dates.)

4b & 5b combined. Now that the US economy itself has collapsed following the collapse of its two primary movers, what next? (I'd LOVE to hear their answers on this!)

6. While you claim that the manufactureres of goods and the providers of services will reduce their prices due to the lack of corporate taxes, how to you plan on ensuring that that actually happens? (Sounds like quasi-communisim with central control on prices. Shudder!)

6a. And what about corporations that are bleeding money like Ford and GM and pay no income taxes since they're LOSING money. Where will THEIR price cuts come from?? THEIR costs will actually RISE as money spent on infrastructure investment will be taxed so their prices will RISE substantially. Uh-oh, Houston we have a problem!

7. How to you explain to the single mother with 2 kids that the EIC that she was depending upon for basic survival is being replaced by the "prebate" BUT she'll now pay about $5,400 in taxes that she didn't have to pay before? (Virtually every penny she earns pays for essential goods and services. She'll be cruicified by the added tax burden as she doesn't pay any income taxes now but WILL pay heavily under the co-called "Fair Tax.")

8. How do you plan to deal with the outcry from the World Trade Organization as untaxed American goods flood the global markets, shutting out imports in the US and local products overseas? (Hmmm... Go back to corporate income taxes? Whoops! There goes a prime argument for the "Fair Tax!")

9. How will you deal with the Paris Hiltons, Steve Forbeses, Bill Gateses (insert favorite rich person's names 1,500 times) who will simply make their major purchases overseas and bring them into the US as used and therefore tax-free. (Remember the failed Luxury Tax from the 80s that put yacht dealers out of business in droves and tossed their employees onto the unemployment and welfare lines.)

10. Finally, how to you explain to the middle class taxpayer earning $50,000 per year with a family of 4 and paying almost no income tax that he now has to pay $10,000 in taxes MORE than his "prebate" amount? (I'd love to hear that one too!)

I could go on for hours on the unintended consequences of the grossly misnamed "Fair Tax" but my fingers are getting tired. In the end it's a SWEET deal for the wealthy (who tend to amass wealth, not spend it all) but would crucify the poor and bring the middle class to their knees. The economists who dreamed this up have no focus on the social impact of this and were told to ignore any impact other than the bottom line for the US government. Hardly "Fair" IMHO.

The ONLY good tax is a graduated income tax. It's the ONLY tax that adheres to the first rule of taxation: Make sure that the taxpayer can AFFORD to pay the tax.

The wealthy support the misnamed "Fair Tax" or the Flat Tax since they'd pay MUCH less in taxes. If you lessen the burden on one group you either must cut services or transfer the burden to another group. That leaves the poor and middle class to shoulder the burden of a tax cut for the wealthy. Sorry, but I flatly refuse to subsidize your next BMW!
