Recently, CNN reported rampant income tax fraud of a new sort. Thieves steal social security numbers then file tax returns on the accounts of these social security numbers. They then receive the refunds that were due honest working citizens. The segment went on to suggest the IRS is not doing its part to curtail such activities.

The income tax has been seriously flawed from its inception. Every working citizen spends hours annually preparing tax returns: what a waste of citizens’ time. There are myriads of persons, whose salary we pay, working within the IRS shuffling all this paper: what a waste of citizens’ money.

The income tax should be replaced by the Fair Tax. This would replace the very expensive, inefficient IRS with all its imperfections. The Fair Tax is a national sales tax to be collected at the point of sale.

The Fair Tax has been “in committee” in both the House and Senate for over a year. Ask your congressional candidates about the Fair Tax before you vote.
