The FAIRtax Guys discuss the many problems with the current federal income tax and the solution to all those problems, the FAIRtax.
#397 FAIRtax Questions Answered
The FAIRtax FAQ at fairtax.org is an excellent resource for anyone wanting to know more about what the FAIRtax is, how it works and why it’s fair.
In this edition of FAIRtax Power Radio, the FAIRtax Guys look at why the FAIRtax is truly a fair tax. They examine the effect of the prebate on families of different income levels and also tackle the question of whether or not it’s fair to give rich families and poor families the same prebate
#396 Some Thoughts from Steve Hayes
Steve Hayes is the president of Americans for Fair Taxation. He has been involved in the effort to replace the income tax with a consumption tax since well before the FAIRtax was developed and introduced into Congress.
This week, Steve sits down with the FAIRtax Guys and offers his thoughts on everything from the recent turmoil in the House of Representatives regarding the Speakership to how school vouchers and other tuition assistance provided by some states may be treated by the IRS.
#395 NC State Should Know Better
Back in February, economist Nathan Goldman at North Carolina State University in Raleigh published an article purporting to answer common questions people may have about the FAIRtax. You would think that an economist would understand what a boon the FAIRtax would be for the American economy.
Unfortunately, this article seems to be a thinly veiled attack on the FAIRtax repeating many of the inaccuracies, omissions and distortions others have used in trying to turn people against the FAIRtax. So once again, the FAIRtax Guys are here to set the record straight.
#394 Sweeping Changes at the IRS
The IRS has announced what it calls “a sweeping effort to restore fairness to the tax system”. In a nutshell, the IRS says it’s going to make tax compliance fairer by concentrating its enforcement and auditing efforts on higher income taxpayers, partnerships, large corporations and promoters who are abusing the tax rules.
This week, the FAIRtax guys look at the actual IRS announcement published at irs.gov and ask the question that no one else is asking. “Why do we continue to tolerate a tax system that in inherently unfair and requires billions of dollars to administer and enforce?”
#393 The FAIRtax Guys at WTOB
The FAIRtax Guys are grateful for the radio stations that carry FAIRtax Power Radio at no charge as a public service. The flagship station for this effort is WTOB in Winston-Salem, NC where Bob Scarborough is employed.
Usually, the radio stations rebroadcast programs that have already streamed live on our video platforms. However, once a year the Guys switch things up and do a live program on WTOB that is video streamed later. This week’s FAIRtax Power Radio is the video stream of the live program that aired on WTOB on Sunday October 22.
#392 A Conversation with John Linder
Congressman John Linder from Georgia was a pioneer in the FAIRtax movement. He was the original sponsor of the FAIRtax bill when it was first introduced into Congress. He also co-wrote the two best selling FAIRtax books with Neal Boortz.
John recently sat down with the FAIRtax Guys for a wide ranging conversation covering everything from how the current scramble for House Speaker may affect the FAIRtax to how to re-ignite the public passion that was on display when the FAIRtax was first introduced to the American people.

Need to hear
This is a very informative and entertaining podcast. I read the books a few years back and wondered why are we not already doing this. Fast forward a few years and it still has not happened. This podcast is a great introduction to the plan. If you need more convincing or information, I suggest reading the book. Keep up the great work guys!
A great idea, no IRS!
