Quick Facts

Discussions with focus groups of Americans showed that what citizens want is a tax system that provides Fairness, Simplicity, and Visibility. The FairTax achieves these objectives through:

Simplicity — one rate for everyone; no tax filings
Fairness — is progressive, protecting the poor through a tax rebate on the necessities of life; no loopholes, therefore everyone pays the same rate on every purchase
Visibility — our taxes will be shown on every sales receipt rather than hidden in the prices we pay
