By the time many of you read this Donald J. Trump will be the 45th President of the United States for less than 48 hours. Americans For Fair Taxation, an all-volunteer grassroots effort, has developed a campaign to:
Connect with President Trump and demonstrate how FAIRtax helps him accomplish his many campaign promises: Create Jobs, Grow the Economy, Drain the Swamp and more.
Reinforce the fact the Federal Tax system is broken beyond repair. Tax evasion has grown to over $600 billion per year. Filing, Compliance and Economic Costs have grown to over $1 Trillion per year.
Show that the FairTax Act of 2017 is researched, ready, and that President Trump has the Team that can make it happen;
Convince President Trump to Tweet #MTFA, do a Make Taxes Fair Again Tour, to educate the American people, and assign Vice President Mike Pence to coordinate the strategy for Congress to Pass the FAIRtax.
President Trump has been briefed on FAIRtax by Vice President Mike Pence. His team has included among others Gov. Mike Huckabee, Dr. Tom Price, HHS Secretary nominee, CIA Director nominee Congressman Mike Pompeo (KS-04) as well as FAIRtax researcher Stephen Moore, and Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (TN-07) all of whom have been FAIRtax supporters.
In addition, there is an article confirming $1 trillion dollars per year lost to the economy from filing, compliance, avoidance and economic costs. We have had an out of control IRS targeting citizens' groups. We have millions of dollars of off-the-books non-reporting or under-reporting of income. We have a retail industry second to none in the world in electronic point of sale computers.
Our electronic marketing brochure will be distributed to every member of the Trump Administration we can reach by February 1. We will have links to an executive summary, and a full detailed study available of Dr. Richard Cebula, updating a prior study from 2012, that showed $600 billion dollars per year in tax evasion. Part two of that study, due in March, will finally answer the question in economic probability that evasion of the FAIRtax is likely to be relatively low in comparison.
These studies and the much needed testimony and promotion of Dr. Cebula are expensive. They will exceed $25,000. We need your help in funding these projects, and much needed broadcast media. Please donate what you can at either FAIRtax.org/1040 or BigSolution.org/contribute.
We are not ignoring the second level at the top. Congress is in session and both H.R. 25 The FairTax Act and S.18 The FairTax Act are filed, building support, and will seek to get more than the total 83 sponsors/cosponsors from the 114th Congress of 2015-2017. Again, we need your help. Vote on POPVOX at SupportFairTax.com, complete the petition at FAIRtax.org/petition, call your Representatives in the House and the Senate (866 220 0044), and direct messages to Speaker Paul Ryan, Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, and Chairman Kevin Brady of the House Ways and Means Committee which is where all tax bills originate. Chairman Brady is an original 1999 cosponsor of FAIRtax.
We pressure from the top down, we build from the bottom up, and in the end it is up to YOU! You control the destiny of FAIRtax. It is your time to act. The window is open. The time is short. The window will not be open long. Get on social media at @FairTaxOfficial-Twitter, Facebook.com/FairTax, LinkedIn, Google+, and anywhere you can reach out. Talk to your friends, neighbors, co-workers and your family giving them palm cards from FairTaxLogoStore.org. Keep FAIRtax tote bags for when you go to the grocery and start a conversation.
Yes, Mr. Trump can #MAGA-MakeAmericaGreatAgain but only if we #MTFA-MakeTaxesFairAgain. Let’s let him know that! Send him a message right here.
