About Americans For Fair Taxation

Americans For Fair Taxation® (AFFT) was founded in 1995, by three Houston entrepreneurs.

It is a nonpartisan 501(c)(4) grassroots organization solely dedicated to replacing the current income tax code with a national retail-level consumption tax.

AFFT began as a research organization. Extensive polling and focus group studies were commissioned with a financially, ethnically and politically diverse group of taxpayers. The results of these studies led to a nonpartisan team of economists who developed the FairTax® plan.

Today, AFFT is the largest tax reform organization in the nation. We have a clearly defined mission and vision for the American people:

MISSION: Pass the FairTax®

VISION: A reinvigorated U.S. economy with millions of new, well paying jobs under a federal tax system that:
  • Encourages a culture of savings and capital formation
  • Provides adequate funding for current and future national spending priorities
  • Restores the freedom, dignity and privacy of the taxpayer and,
  • Positions the U.S. to compete globally
The AFFT board of directors is an all-volunteer board comprised of working and retired taxpayers from all walks of life. Directors are elected by local FairTax supporters in their home state.
