Research Library

We clearly recognize that the research data provided is probably more reading than you want. And some of it can be mind-bending (unless you love numbers!). Yet, this research is what allows us to firmly believe in the FairTax.

In addition to our research, linked below are transcripts of testimony about the FairTax delivered to the House Ways and Means Committee and the House Committee on Small Business.

One of the entities that we used to conduct research was Beacon Hill Institute in Boston. They completed comprehensive research on the major facets of the FairTax – estimation of the tax base and rate for the FairTax compared to other tax reform proposals, its impact on the economy, on the states, on the distribution of the tax burden and on charitable giving.

Another one of our researchers is Laurence J. Kotlikoff, Professor of Economics at Boston University, fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and former senior economist, President’s Council of Economic Advisers. Kotlikoff has published extensively in the field of public finance and tax reform, including papers on the FairTax, which are targeted to laypeople as well as professional audiences.

Listed below is our research sorted by topic.

Help FAIRtax Get In The Presidential Debates in 2020
