Former Fairtax Sucker Exposes the Fraud

under construction. 


I was a fairtax sucker.  
My name is Mark Curran. 

This is what  they told us Fairtax was - Boortz called it "a very very simple personal retail sales tax, paid at the cash register." 

And twenty other great sounding slogans -- not one of them remotely true. 

Boortz told us Fairtax is "the most researched plan in economic history".    Wow!   Great slogan-- not true whatsoever.

Eighty eight "top economist" developed Fairtax, and they have "22 million dollars of research" to back it up. (Great slogan, not true, there is literally no research about this very simple retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes).

Dale Jorgenson, of Harvard, Boortz told us, proved endless great things about this "very simple retail sales tax,"  such as all prices fall, US businesses grows by 40% in the first year,  and the average take home pay goes up 50%!

None of that, absolutely none of that is true. There is no such research, and Jorgenson not only didn't do it, Jorgenson came out against Fairtax. 

Research -- who would lie about 22 million in research? No one would lie that big, that blatantly, right?


Wanna bet?  

 I offer $50,000  (a serious legal offer) to anyone who can show me one page of the 22 million dollars of "research"   into Fairtax very simple personal retail sales tax, to replace all other fed taxes.  Call your attorney.  Print out the offer below, and please, go for it.

See details below.





We could laugh at the idiots who fell for it, prosecute for fraud those that sold it, and learn from our mistakes.

So really - really -- pass this fraud.

   Sadly, no one ever had any intention to pass it.    Vice President Mike Pence is a perfect example -- he pretended to push it in Congress, but always knew it was a fraud. As VP, he won't do a thing to get his own bill passed.

For one thing, every city in Indiana would owe massive fairtaxes on all wage, pension, and capital investment expenditures (see the fine print). Indianapolis would owe over 120 million dollars, by itself, per sworn testimony to House Ways Means Committee

See Pence talk about Fairtax.   He never mentions one word of these massive and impossible other taxes, which make up most of Fairtax goofy "projected revenue". 

Tiny Richmond Indiana would owe over 12 million dollars --and every city.

Not just cities- - all counties would owe likewise. Marion County Indiana would owe over 140 million -- and Pence never hinted at any of these massive taxes.

The state of Indiana itself, likewise, would owe impossibly large taxes, on wage, pension, capital investment, all expenditures (except education) are taxed 23% -- not just retail purchase. 

What's that tell you?

Fairtax was always -- always -- a fund raising fraud by some Scientologist hustlers, as you will see.

The slogans are great-- fantastic in fact.  But slogans are not fine print. 


Fairtax hustlers told  us they have a "very very simple" personal retail sales tax.

They claim 22 million dollars of "research".

Problem is, Fairtax has trillions of dollars of extra taxes, over and above, on top of, the retail sales tax, and they try very hard to hide that from us.  

The other problem - Fairtax has no research, despite repeated offers of 50,000 dollars to any charity, to show one page. See details below.

Pay it at the cash register.  Prices will drop so much, don't worry about the 23% tax.
Sounded GREAT.  All their slogans sounded great!


1 )  I'm a former Fairtax sucker who exposes the fraud.   I want to get rid of our entire tax code.

2) Everything I show about Fairtax is in their OWN documents -- if you can find them all.

3) This was all exposed by President Bush Tax Advisory Panel in 2005, politely. 

It's better if you go look these up yourself, I did. They are there, if you get all their documents and look closely.  

I am  not as polite as President Bush Tax Panel.   They had no trouble finding the goofy fraud (the massive other taxes, impossible other taxes).  But they can read fine print tricks for breakfast, and spit them out at lunch.  

I show you same fraud and bullshit that Bush Tax Panel showed, but I show it in blunt terms.


Retail sales, right?  Uh, not so much. 


Do  you even know what the hell "NIPA" is?  

Don't feel bad, I had no clue either.

 Fairtax hustlers sure as hell never told you -- except in tricky ass double talk, in their official documents they call "research".  

They tax retail sales, yes, but they tax much, much much -- MUCH - more. And they only tell you that if you read all their documents and footnotes, and defintions, very very closely.

There is not one single Fairtax book, not one single Fairtax speech, not one video that even mentions "NIPA"  and how they tax everything NIPA defines as "personal or governmental consumptions expenditures".

Not. One.  Ever. Not once, not ever, in 15 years.   Thousands of speeches, and they never mentioned it. Thousands of videos-- never mentioned it.

Gee  -- I wonder why all this "forgetting" to mention the most basic thing -- what they actually tax in the fine print. 

The retail sales tax is not the problem.

The problem is the massive OTHER and impossible taxes.


This is their document.

This is their document.

This is their document 

The "NIPA" taxes have nothing to do with just personal retail sales.

NIPA taxes would include  massive taxes on your city, your county, your state, your library district, your park district- - 23% tax on all expenditures.

According to sworn testimony - remember that, sworn testimony to House Ways and Means Committee in 2010,  and according to Fairtax own fine print, all cities owe massive taxes, and are supposed to raise their tax rates accordingly.

Remember that -- according to the fine print, and according to sworn testimony to Ways Means Committee -- all city county and states are supposed to "remit" these huge taxes, and raise their tax rates accordingly.

It's in the fine print -- there is  no dispute about this.   Read the damn fine print.  

And they never told you



These massive extra taxes -- that they never told suckers about -- is by far the largest part of Fairtax.   Massive impossible other taxes, included for one reason: to make their math add up on paper.

That they never told anyone in public about these massive other taxes in any candid way, supports the claim that Fairtax is a fraud -- deliberate deceptions,  clever use of misleading or outright fraudulent definitions,  false claims of research, etc.

To the public-- Boortz, Pence, Huckabee,  any of the supposed Fairtax experts pushing this have never mentioned these massive impossible other taxes.  They made it seem like a simple retail sale tax.


Your city, your county, your state, and the federal government are supposed to idiotically pay these huge taxes to the federal government -- then raise your tax rates to pay it!

All. Expenditures.  That means, and they clever say it means, wage expenditures, taxed 23%. 

So if your city "expends" 20 million on police and firemen pay and benefits,  your city would owe 23% (almost 5 million) in taxes.

In advance.

Let me repeat that, the taxes on city county and states are (see below) paid in advance.

 Pension expenditures, taxed 23%.

Capital expenditures -- taxed 23%.

Even military (yes even military) expenditures -- taxed 23%.

Why have all this in their "tax base"?   To make their math add up, that's why.

You need to know how these lying bastards use the "tax base"  and their fraudulent (purposely misleading) definitions. 


Why should a cancer victim have 30 or 40 thousand dollars higher federal tax, just because she got sick?  

Forget can she -- why?   Why should a cancer victim pay massive taxes?  

Part of the massive other taxes in Fairtax fine print, are the impossible taxes on all cancer victims.  How is all cancer care, surgery, chemo, etc, taxed?

Because in the "tax base"  they put "all personal and governmental consumption expenditures" according to NIPA tables.  Guess what. all health care is part of those expenditures.

Not just retail sales, but all personal and governmental  consumption expenditures


Fairtax could not simply "exempt" health care without calling attention to the entire "all consumption expenditures" slight of hand.

Just like they could not "exempt" city county and states expenditures for wages, pensions, etc.  If they exempted city county and states taxes on wages, pensions, operational expenditures, capital expenditures (that they never told you about)  the tax rate would need to be 89%/

They would have to exempt all city county and state pension, wage, and capital expenditures -- larger, even that health care.

See, Fairtax tax base even includes all federal spending, including military spending. Yes, all federal expenditures are in the tax base.

So stunning, so outlandish, you gotta have balls the size of baskets to push a fraud like this.  Yet, it's there. All federal expenditures are in the tax base, if you look very very closely.

And all government entities are supposed to "raise their tax rates" to pay this.  That is their assumption, in their own fine print.

So if they "exempted" cancer (all health care) the tax rate would need to be 40 or 45%/.

   If they then exempted state local and federal expenditures, the tax rate would need to be 65 or 70%.

To make the tax rate on paper look like 23%, they had to run this outlandish fraud, and just hide it in the fine print.

So they did.


Fairtax "tax base"  has no exceptions.

Yes, retail sales are in the tax base.   

But those are only a small part of what Fairtax has "in the tax base". This is their own document, which they call "research".  Read it closely.   

If they only taxed retail sales, the tax rate would need to be 89%


All cancer victims - even on Medicare -- 
are personally liable for 23% tax on this "consumption."

Like so many other impossibilities in Fairtax, the cancer tax on the poor would be impossible to collect. Not difficult, impossible.

So why have these massive other taxes in the fine print?  

To make the fraudulent math add up.  Which it does -- it's fraudulent, so fraudulent if you gave them any money, you can sue to get it back. 

But their math does add up, if you include two trillion dollars of other taxes that are impossible to collect.  

All -- all -- "personal and governmental consumption expenditures"  are in the tax base.

Without exception.

Their math is based on this. 

Remember that.  Their math is based on this.

Not on retail sales -- rather, on whatever NIPA defines as "personal or governmental consumption expenditures".


Mike Pence was a sponsor for Fairtax. Spoke in favor of it at least 400 times.

See why he won't do shit about Fairtax, now that he is VP -- it was a goofy ass fraud the whole time. And he knew it. 

He was lying about Fairtax the entire time. 
And he knew it. 

Fairtax fine print shows they tax everything "NIPA" defines as personal or governmental "consumption expenditures".  Without exception.

These other taxes are goofy and impossible. Not sort of goofy and impossible, literally and absolutely goofy / impossible.  But they had to include these other taxes,  because a tax on retail sales only would be 89%.

Not 23%


They weren't about to tell Fairtax suckers they have an 89% tax on retail sales --so they just called it a retail sales tax, and put the massive other taxes in the fine print. 


If you gave Fairtax hustlers any money, here is why you can sue to get it back, or just demand they pay you back. 



1)  Fairtax has 2 trillion dollars of "other taxes"  --you must pay those on top of, in addition to, the retail sales tax.

2)  The "other taxes" are goofy as hell, deliberately hidden in their revenue tables, and a few words here and there. 

3) We show you.

Oh they tell you-- yes they do.  But you have to find their "supporting documents"  which they call "research." 

They never told you in any book, any video, any speech.  Ever. Not a hint, not a clue.  Yet these "other taxes" are by far the largest part of Fairtax. 

Trillions of dollars of other taxes you will have to pay, on top of, in addition to, that retail sales tax.  Mostly massive "operational" and "capital expenditure" taxes on city county and states.

Mike Pence and others told you about a 23 dollar tax on a jacket.

Just kinda "forgot" to tell you about the 2 trillion dollar taxes, most on city county and states, for their "expenditures".

Anything "NIPA" defines as "consumption expenditures"  for all city, county and states, is in the tax base.

Do you know that that means?   Tax base means -- what they tax.

Yes, all city county and states would owe 23% (Fairtax math is based on it) tax on all operational, all capital, all wage, all pension expenditures.

Operate a library in your county for 10 million a year?  Guess what, those "consumption expenditures"  are in the tax base. Look closely.  And Fairtax "assumes" all city county and states will raise their tax rates to pay it.

Mike Pence and all others  "forgot" to tell you a city the size of Peoria Illinois would have a 35 million dollar tax on their wage, pension and capital investment expenditures. 
 The state of Iowa would owe over 3 billion dollars.  No, not for retail sales, city county and states would have to pay 23% tax on all operational expenditures.  Texas would owe over 15 billion, California now, over 20 billion.

You think Mike Pence is going to make Texas pay 15 billion? Hell, he would not even mention this part of Fairtax.

You think Mike Pence is going to make Cook County IL pay 180 million tax on wage, pensions, operational and capital expenditures?

Hell no he wont. No one will .   Yet that's the biggest part of Fairtax.  

Remember that.  These massive "other taxes"  are the biggest part of Fairtax.  The "retail sales tax" they told you about, they lied even about that, but those are the smallest part of Fairtax.

See, you have to read the fine print. And these lying bastards were very clever-- and fraudulent (deliberately misleading) in how they wrote that fine print.

We show you.    


Why have these massive other taxes?   

To make the math work on paper.

Without these massive other taxes, Fairtax would be 89%, not 23% 


Every city. Every county. Every state.  

Yet Pence -- nor anyone else -- ever bothered to tell the public about it.  In fact, Fairtax hustlers went through extraordinary measures to convince suckers it was a "very very simple"
 personal retail sale tax.

Not so much.  Most of Fairtax has nothing to do with retail sales. Huge taxes -- for many cities, this would be their biggest single expenditure, and for some reason, Fairtax hustlers kept that secret, only in the clever fine print tricks, definitions, and tax revenue tables.

We show you .  You should have found it yourself.  Yes, it's very slick, but it's there if you read all their official documents very closely.


                    -- RAISE YOUR TAX RATES!

You too every city. You too every county. You too every state.  

And your city is supposed to "raise their tax rates" to pay it.

You think Mike Pence is going to tell Houston it has to pay 210 million dollars?  That's 23% of Houston's "taxable expenditures".

As you will see in the fine print, and tax revenue tables, Fairtax literally counts as revenue, a 23% on all expenditures, capital expenditures, pension and wage expenditures, any expenditure other than education.

Pence should have no trouble at all now pushing Fairtax for a vote, or pushing it into law.  Somehow, he will be too busy, or the country "is not ready"  - or whatever he can dream up.

He knows quite well Fairtax has 2 trillion dollars of other taxes in the fine print -- put there to make the fraudulent math add up.

And he isn't about to tell Texas state legislature it has to pay over 16 billion. He isn't about to tell his own state of Indiana it would owe over 4 billion.

He isn't about to tell Indianpolis  that it would owe over 40 million.

On and on. You see, the biggest tax in Fairtax is something they dared never mention -- these impossible goofy huge taxes on all city county and states. 

You watch -- Pence will run from Fairtax like a coward, and make up excuses why he can't.    There are no excuses now.    And Fairtax hustlers hope the idiots don't grasp that.  And, Fairtax supporters are that stupid (no offense)  they will believe  yet other excuse from these lying bastards, who never told you the truth from the start.

Education expenditures are not included in the "tax base". But literally all other "expenditures" are in the tax base.

And if you bothered to get all their documents, read every footnote, studied the revenue charts very carefully, went through every definition, you could have seen it yourself.

All other expenditures are in the "tax base".   Tax base, by definition, is what they tax. 

This chart is from a Fairtax document. Notice it adds personal and governmental consumption expenditures, to arrive at a "tax base".  But they never make that quite clear.

Virtually everything in these numbers would be taxed 23% -- including military spending, government spending, research, wages, pensions and benefits. 

Does this look like just retail sales to you? 

Don't believe all city county and states are supposed to pay?  

And remember, this is the biggest part of Fairtax.  Retail sales tax are the small part.

Here is what it looks like the entire page.

Notice it's in a footnote.

Here is what the front of the document looks like....

The retail sales tax is only a small part of Fairtax.

Worse -- the other taxes, those cleverly placed in the fine print - are impossible and goofy as hell.

They can't make Peoria, Chicago, San Diego, LA County, the state of California, ect etc etc, pay a damn dime.

And they don't tell these cities, they don't tell anyone, except in the clever double talk and footnotes.

Do you think these lying bastards did all this trickery by accident?  Hell no. They were lying bastards from the word go.

And still are. 

As one Fairtax expert said "It's like pretending to tax moonbeams and baby farts for 2 trillion dollars, but hiding that in some footnote no one sees"

Baby farts and moonbeam tax?

No, they do not tax baby farts and moonbeams, but the massive "other taxes" in fairtax revenue projections, cleverly inserted a few words here and there in their official documents, are exactly as logical as 2 trillion dollar tax on moonbeams and baby farts.

The retail sales tax is only a tiny part of Fairtax.  They "forgot" to mention those massive other taxes in any book, any speech, any video. 

No wonder they "forgot" to mention the other taxes -- they are impossible and goofy. 


Two trillion dollars they "forgot" to mention.

There is a 23% tax on all cancer victims --without exception -- for their "consumption" of cancer surgery and chemo.

But far larger even than that, are the massive taxes on city, county, and states.

For 15 years, thousands of speeches, dozens of books, hundreds of videos, and each time they "forgot" to mention what they actually tax. 

If you were fooled by Fairtax, like I was, it's not your fault. Your cult daddy lied to you. I show you the lies.

Only difference between me and you -- I kept asking questions.

When they gave some goofy ass evasive answers.  I asked questions like "Where in HR25 are these massive taxes on every city in the USA, for wage expenditures."

Yes, there are massive taxes on wage expenditures, pension expenditures. All expenditures, from paying United States soldiers, to operating a prison system, to building bridges - all such expenditures are taxed.

How are they taxed?  You have to see the lying bastard's  TAX BASE TRICK.


 This is their own document, in what they cleverly, and fraudulently, call "research".

Tax base, by definition, means "what we tax".   If their tax base is rubber bands, and nothing else, that is what they tax, rubber bands.

If they "put in the tax base" all wage and pension expenditures of all city county and states,  that means they tax all wage and pension expenditures of all city county and states.

They did -- in fact -- put all wage, pension and capital expenditures "in the tax base".   That's 60% of the revenue in Fairtax -- the tax on retail sales is only 40% of their revenue.



So unless you know what these hustlers wrote in their "tax base documents"  you don't know shit. And they were clever about hiding the tax base documents.   They never mentioned them in their books, videos or speeches -- gee, I wonder why not?



Most Fairtax suckers only know the slogans. Slogans don't matter. Oh yes, hustlers make slogans sound great. This is news to you? 

Some fairtax  read the Fairtax books, and then (not kidding) go around giving lectures on how great Fairtax is.   They don't have a damn clue what Fairtax actually taxes, but they are out pushing Fairtax, spreading the hustle.

What matters is what these hustlers put IN THE TAX BASE. 

Yes, HR25 is important too.  Read it carefully, and then see how these lying bastards then use the word games in HR25 later, in their "research".

Surely guys like Mike Huckabee and Gary Johnson read the fine print, closely, right?

They didn't just hear a few slogans and use Fairtax for their basic economic reality, right?   

They read the fine print closely, right?

Uh -- not so much 





Fairtax sounded great -- a "very very simple"  retail sales tax on"personal consumption".  

More than anything, that 22 million dollars of research. Even Harvard University backed it, right?   Eighty "leading economist" vetted it, right?

As you will see, that is  the big lie of Fairtax.  And it's the reason I offer 50,000 dollars (really, a legal offer, ask your attorney) for one page of that 22 million dollars of research on this "very very simple"  personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.

See full details below, or email me about this offer. 

Should not be hard to show one page, right?  Someone offers you 50K for one page, you should be glad to show it, right?

Uh, as you will see, Fairtax has, literally, no research.   They have some hustlers (see below) that put out hundreds of pages on nonsense and double speak, but not only is that not research, even more it's not about a simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes. 

They have nicely typed documents, all official looking, and it's 100% bullshit -- intended to decieve,  not to research and not to inform.  

Documents put out to fool people are not research, at least not our definition that we use in this 50K offer.






In those documents are amazing "details"  and  "assumptions" --  like  they "assume" all city county and states will pay these huge other taxes and then  --- raise their tax rates to pay it.

That's over 1 trillion dollars of raised taxes -- in a foot note.  We assume all city county and states will raise their tax rates!  

This would be over trillion dollars in increased taxes -- in their own document, in a footnote.  Let me repeat that, a footnote.


Why not tell you about these massive city, county and state tax increases?   Never -- except in this footnote, in one cleverly written document. 

Don't you think Chicago should know they would owe over 180 million?

Don't you think Denver should know they would owe over 150 million?

How about the State of California -- they would owe over 20 billion.

Why so high? Because the tax is on (as you can see in the fine print if you look closely) 23% on all expenditures other than education. All other expenditures, including prisons, highways, police, fire harbors, whatever, is taxed 23%.

How do we know? Because of the tax tables.  Such expenditures are in the tax tables. There is much much more in the tax tables than retail sales. 

The retail sales tax is only a fraction of what is in Fairtax.   Those taxes are not the problem.

The problem -- the fraud - is the massive other goofy and impossible other taxes .

And yes, they knew it was a fraud-- not kinda, not sorta, not in a way.  A fraud in the sense that they told you great sounding slogans, but they had no research,  and certainly not 22 million dollars of research about this "very simple" retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.


Prices all drop 22%, and  take home pay goes up a stunning average of 50% (Per fairtax book). 

Your take home pay explodes, prices drop, AND you get each month a "prebate"  to pay the taxes on your "necessities". 

Pay skyrockets.  Prices drop. You get a big check from the government every month.  The "Illegals" go home because they don't get a government check.

Sounds like a goofy ass fraud -- but ALL THAT RESEARCH!!! 

Eighty economist designed it.   They would see that fraud, right?  No way 80 top economist could be fooled right?

Sound familiar? That's what they told suckers.

And those suckers told other suckers, etc, etc.



Uh, there were not any economists doing this, as you will see below.  What they call "research"  is just their own double speak nonsense in their own documents.

That's not research  - that's the opposite of research.

We contacted over a dozen of the supposed "researchers" and none of them did any research -- instead, they wrote or spoke in favor of Fairtax, and so Fairtax liars just conflated that to "researchers".

There was only one guy - ONE -- who we contacted who even had a clue of these massive other taxes in the fine print -- and he is the guy that wrote that. That's right, Fairtax has a guy, they pay him, to write this shit.  His name is  Laurence J Kotlikoff, who made a lot of money doing this fraud - but was it a fraud?

Read Kotlikoff's words very carefully. They "assume" huge tax increases at all levels, paid in advance. They "adopt" a prepay approach for governments (including the federal government) to pay these huge goofy impossible taxes.

Feel free to call Kotlikoff, ask who paid him, and asks him why he didn't say anything candidly.  Ask if he knew Fairtax hustlers were telling suckers Fairtax was a simple retail sales tax.  Of course he knew -- but you can argue he personally never outright lied, because of his footnotes, assumptions, clever defintions, etc.

So Kotlikoff, with Beacon Hill, made a lot of money fooling you. It was a deliberate con job,  because he made it SEEM like a simple retail sales tax in tone, but he did include these massive other taxes if you read it very closely.  

Dale Jorgeson -- Boortz sold him as the guy who essentnially proved Fairtax was wonderful.

Jorgenson proved otherwise, and never supported Fairtax, in fact he supported Obama's tax plan.

But the way Fairtax hustlers could manipulate words, like Boortz, suckers thought Jorgenson proved all this bullshit. Not at all. 

Tricky definition of wages and taxable employer, puts all government expenditures for personnel, wages, pensions, benefits, insurance, health care, "in the tax base". 

Someone paid a lot of money -- to guys like Boortz, Kotlikoff, and for jets, buses, book publishing.

Remember, they knew it was a goofy fraud, from day one.  But the slogans sounded sooooo good.

Oh really?  Why can't they produce the "economist" that "researched"  this very very simple personal retail sales tax?   Fairtax isn't by any means a very very simple retail sales tax.  



I was fooled by this too -- another bullshit slogan.

Just buy used, Neal Boortz told us -- used houses, used cars.  You can get your federal tax to near zero, and get that prebate, AND get all your social security and medicare too!!!

What's wrong with that slogan?

Remember -- most of Fairtax is not the retail sales tax, but these massive taxes on city county and states.

Ever hear of "used pension" expenditures?  Massive taxes on every city county and states for their pension and wage expenditures, benefit expenditures, capital expenditures.

Ever hear of used wage expenditures?

How about used rent?

How about used car and health insurance?  Yes you would be taxed on all health insurance, life insurance, care insurance.

How about used cable service? 

Seen any used phone service lately?

How about used food? And used airline fares.

Any used cancer surgery?  All cancer care, all dental care, is taxed -- not just cancer care we pay for, but all cancer care CONSUMPTION is taxed (because it's "in the tax base" which is how Fairtax math works).

But because Fairtax suckers present this fraud in such a slick way -- Fairtax suckers had no clue of the massive other taxes anyway.

So of course they had no clue what Fairtax really taxed.   Fairtax hustlers sure as hell never told them.   And they didn't care -- it sounded good.  That's what they wanted.

Let's do it!  

 US companies become "the powerhouse of the world"  because they are free of taxes, and can easily compete with any businesses in the world!  47% - according to research -- more business for US companies, in the first year

On and on. And on.   The only trouble will be, what to do with the money flowing into US Treasury, according to Neal Boortz.

No wonder folks loved it!  Huckabee, FOX NEWS, Herman Cain, CATO institute.    So simple. Transparent -- pay a voluntary tax at "point of purchase".

Prices all drop anyway -- so that 23% sales tax "doesn't matter".

All researched!   Even Harvard economist Dale Jorgenson not only approved, but validated all these amazing claims!!

Not so much.  Jorgeson does not support Fairtax, or anything like it. In fact, he favored President Obama's tax plan.  Yet Boortz and the whole group of Fairtax hustlers gave you the opposite impression. 







They tax -- without exception -- everything in the "tax base" . All personal "consumption expenditures"   and all "government consumption expenditures" are in the tax base.

Tax base is drastically different that just retail sales. 

One example: all Medicare expenditures are in the tax base, under "personal consumption."

Remember, tax base means, by definition, what they tax. They never explain this candidly, but check the "tax base" documents.  All consumption (including Medicare consumption) is taxed without exception.   And the person using or consuming those goods or services are liable, without exception.

That is how their math adds up, as we show.

Folks just assume a medicare patient would not owe 30,000 dollars in taxes on Medicare "expenditure" of 140,000 in cancer surgery, chemo, and rehab consumption.

Tax all consumption (personal and governmental) without exception.

Indeed their math tables are based on exactly this -- all military expenditures, are in the tax base.

All capital expenditures paid out by city county and states are in the tax base.

Even all Medicare expenditures, are in the tax base.

And their math depends on this absurdity.   But they did tell you, if you read it very very closely,  without exception.

What Boortz and others were paid not to tell you

The massive other, and impossible, taxes in the fine print. 

See the chart -- massive OTHER taxes on top of, and in addition to, the retail sales tax. 

Now, go see their own "research" papers on this page.  You will not find a single clear mention that most of Fairtax has nothing to do with retail sales.


Yes there is a retail sales tax.  See it? the navy blue column is retail sales tax?  It's on the far left side.

So yes, they have a retail sales tax.

Now,  you see all the OTHER taxes?    Those are the taxes Fairtax hustlers didn't tell you about.  And that's most of Fairtax revenue.

Most Fairtax suckers (including stupid Gary Johnson) think Fairtax is just that, some kind of retail sales tax.

 And why not think that?  Fairtax lying bastards give that impression.  They deliberately did not mention, ever, these other and by the far the biggest source of taxes, per their fine print.  Massive taxes on every city, every county, and every state.   

But see the OTHER taxes you pay?





 Wages paid OUT -- taxed 23%

Pensions paid OUT -- taxed 23%

Capital expenditures paid OUT -- taxed 23%

Operational expenditures paid OUT -- taxed 23%

Operate a library system for 20 million dollars?   Your county would owe almost 5 million dollars as a tax.

That's in their "tax base". That is how their "tax base"  is so high, a 23% tax seems to work.

If they ONLY taxed rational retail sales -- the tax rate would be 89% or more.

And much of those "other taxes"  your city, county, and state  have to pay in ADVANCE.

That's not what I say, that is what their own documents show, massive other taxes. 

So, is there research that proves it's possible to collect all these other taxes?

Do they have any research whatsoever about these other taxes, in the actual meaning of "research."

Why are their documents not research?  Because hiding some fraudulent and impossible goofy crap in your papers,  put there to decieve, not to inform, is not research at all.

In fact, it's a fraud.

So they don't have 22 million dollars of research, and certainly about a "very simple" personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes, as they claim. 


This is the definition of research that we go by.

Fairtax has over 100 documents, none of which qualify for research, in fact in those documents are the goofy ass fine print we expose.

See below my 50,000 dollar offer (seriously,  a legally binding OFFER)  for one page of that 22 million dollars in research about Fairtax "very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.

If they have 22 million dollars of such research, they have never shown 1 page of it. And you won't find it, either, because it does not exist. Details below.

Hell no. Not a page, not a paragraph, not a post it note. 



Dale Jorgenson is the guy Neal Boortz specifically tells his suckers proved all this about "embedded taxes".   

All costs are "embedded"  by the way. 

But the way Jorgenson told his suckers, Jorgenson is the guy that proved all prices will drop by 22%.   Jorgenson did not prove any such thing, nor anything remotely like it.

IN fact, Jorgenson said the OPPOSITE.  

Prices could only drop theoretically -- if --every wage earned in the USA donated (yes donates)  the taxes he used to pay before Fairtax, to his employer.

Let me repeat that, Jorgenson said IF - IF - IF all employees allowed the employer to keep what they used to pay in income and FICA and medicare taxes, the employer could theoretically lower prices. 

The employer would not have to -- there is nothing whatsoever in HR25 about this goofy "let your employer" keep that money.   That's just what Jorgenson was using as a model. 

Let me repeat -- tor prices to drop, all employees (100%) would have to let the employer keep the money the worker used to pay in fed taxes, and social security taxes.  

How fucking goofy is that?

There is no provision in HR 25 for all workers (or any worker) to donate to his employer all the money he used to pay in fed taxes.  Yet that is what would need to  happen, for all prices to drop 22% like Boortz said is bed rock of Fairtax.

Do you realize how goofy that is?  IF the worker lets the employer keep all that money, the company can, if they chose, lower prices.

That's what Jorgenson said. And Jorgenson does not support the Fairtax fraud.

Boortz  made this guy SEEM like a great Fairtax supporter who proved all kinds of shit. Oh hell no, that lying bastard Boortz.  And by the way, Boortz was paid to push this. Yes he was.

Boortz knew this the whole time. 

And that is what President Bush Tax Panel reported, over 10 years ago.  They just had to read the fine print closely.  I did too.



Wages -- paid out?  Taxed?  Yes.

All expenditures, wages, pensions, capital expenditures, operational expenditures, are taxed 23%.

So a city pays out 20 million for police and firemen - that city owes almost 5 million. They must "remit" that five million to the federal government, in advance. 


How the hell is Fairtax a "simple retail sales tax" to replace all other fed taxes, if in the tricky fine print, there are 2 trillion dollars of other taxes that are goofy as hell, and impossible, and hidden so well,  few fairtax supporters could find them if I gave them a month to do so.

But the fine print is there.  In fact, most of Fairtax has nothing to do with retail sales taxes.  Got that? Most of Fairtax are these huge other taxes they did all they could to hide in the fine print.

So it sure as hell is not a very simple retail sale tax.

And there sure as hell is not 22 million dollars of research into Fairtax "very simple"  personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes, but that's not what it it.  It's a fraud by Scientologist to raise money, later adopted by hustlers like Boortz and Huckabee for political reasons.

"The most researched economic plan in history"  said Sean Hannity of FOX NEWS.   Neal Cavuto spoke highly of it.  CATO institute liked almost as much as (another fraud, see below)  their Flat Tax.

All of them gave the impression Fairtax was a very simple retail sales tax.  Paid "at point of purchase".

It all sounded so spiffy. So academic.  And it was all a fraud. Every. Word. 

By fraud I mean a deliberate deception, where the words are there to fool you, not inform you.

Most of all, Fairtax claimed 22 million in research, about this simple retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes, including Social Security, Medicare, income, corporate taxes. 

Absolutely none of that was true. 


I fell for Fairtax.  Then I read the fine print.

But first -- if they have 22 million dollars of research, why can't they show it?  Or even one page.  I explain why they can't show it, below.

And -- I put my money where my mouth is. 

 I offer 50,000 dollars for one page -- if anyone (including you) can show one page-- of that 22 million dollars of research about this very simple personal retail sales tax, to replace all other fed taxes,  including Social Security taxes, Medicare taxes, corporate taxes, etc.

See full details below. 


So it's there - just in their own documents they hope you think is research.  Not only is it not research, it's Scientology bullshit hustle.  But it is in their official documents. 

You just have to read it carefully.  Because those lying bastards wrote it carefully, to fool you.



But Chicago city council would owe over 170 million dollars. Not just on retail purchases -- but all "consumption expenditures".

AND -- every city would owe massively. NYC would owe a stunning 800 million.

Los Angeles.  And Keokuk Iowa. And Steamboat Springs Colorado. All 20,000 or so US cities.

All 3,000 or so US counties.

All 50 states.  All paying these massive taxes.

All are supposed to "raise their tax rates accordingly" 

SEE HOW  they cleverly turn wage, pension and capital spending into "expenditures"   I show you the exact part of their fine print that does that.  It's a few words here, and there.  

 Certain "WAGES"   are in the "tax base"

Taxable employer is liable for the tax.

All government "expenditures"  including capital investments, are in the tax base.    City county and states are supposed to pay this -- IN ADVANCE.


FOOTNOTE.  They tell you this ONLY in a footnote. 

You would not even see the document with the footnote, if I didn't show you. 

They sure as hell never mention this in any book, video or speech.  Gee, I wonder why they never mentioned it.

It's the biggest part of Fairtax, and they never mention it. 


So why do they show a 23% tax?  Because that would work (on paper) ONLY  if they had these trillions of dollars of other tax revenue. 





Will RAISE THEIR TAX RATES. But we were clever how we said it. You had to find that document, and read it very closely. 



But they only mention this preposterous "assumption" in a document they knew you would likely never see. Gee, I wonder why?

Government is a "taxable employer," which  you can only deduce by their own tax tables and revenue projections.   They never say it clearly, they just base their tax revenue tables (tax base) on these goofy fine print tricks.

It's like they "assume"  they will tax moonbeams and baby farts for 2 trillion in revenue.  But you would probably notice that.  So they just "assume" they will "put" things in the "tax base".

Most people would never notice. We did. So did President Bush Tax Advisory Panel. 

Did their books, videos or speeches ever tell you that your city,  your county AND your state would owe massive taxes?

David  had no idea there is a massive tax on all STATES, for their wage, pension and operational expenditures etc, etc.

Yet Davis went around pushing Fairtax -- dumber than hell IMHO -- too stupid to read the fine print.  

If David can be fooled by these bastards -- and he was, you could be too. David believed the SLOGANS, and did not bother to read, or even find, the important fine print. 



 These words "that consist of what NIPA defines as personal consumption expenditures, and government consumption expenditures"  are a BFD.

Kendell never saw that. And never designed any part of Fairtax.   But they list him as on of "their economist".  Very clever -- and fraudulent, to David and to you.  But David apparently liked it!  He sold Fairtax, never mind he had no clue what they actually taxed for most of their revenue. 


They do have one exception -- one thing they "remove" from the tax base.

All expenditures -- remember that - all expenditures, without exception, all personal  and all governmental "expenditures"  are in the tax base.

They do "remove"  education expenditures - therefore education expenditures are not taxed.  If it's in the tax base, it's taxed.  If it's  not in the tax base, it's not taxed.   Very clever.

And their math is based exactly on that. 

Nothing voluntary about it.

Nothing honest about it, either.


All consumption is taxed, without exception.

If Fairtax did not tax all cancer and medical care, the tax rate would need to be more like 35  -40% , not 23%.

So they were not about to "remove all health care" from the tax base.  If they did, they would have to show a 40% sales tax  rate.

Likewise, if  Fairtax did not tax all city county and states for their expenditures, the tax rate would be more like 50 or 60%, not 23%

All these goofy "other taxes"  are in the tax base to make it SEEM like they can only charge 23%.

And remember this -- every time they spoke about it, every word they wrote, they knew this. 

They knew this was a fraud from the first time they opened their mouths, the first time they wrote a sentence.


By the way, I want Fairtax to pass. Seriously.

It would be hilarious. We could have a good laugh, ask the lying bastards why they lied, and the suckers in the South (for some reason, most Fairtax suckers are in the South) won't be so stupid.   

What I would like best about Fairtax passing --  I want to see them try to collect 140 million dollar wage and pension "expenditure" tax from Dallas Texas city council.  Please, let me see that.

Oh you didn't know about the wage, pension, and operational expenditure tax?

I would love this to pass, then watch them try to tax Texas state legislature 16 billion.

Please let me see that! 

What will they do if Texas state legislature just says "NO"?

I want to be there when they try to get Chicago city council to pay 170 million.

Please let me see that!

So will NYC send in almost 1 billion?   

Will Los Angeles County board send it 1.2 billion?  That's roughly 23% of their non-education expenditures.  And Fairtax taxes all non-education expenditures 23%.

What the hell you gonna do, arrest the LA County board, after Fairtax never fucking told them about it, anyway?

What the hell you gonna do, arrest all US mayors?  Hell no.




This was NEVER a plan to pass -- they never intended to tax all city county and states. Never intended to tax all Mecicare patients 30,000 dollars for "consumption" of cancer surgery, chemo, and rehab.

Fairtax  was a fund raising hustle, as you will see, by Scientologist.   


I get it. Fairtax sounds great -- I bought into it, until I read the fine print closely.

Fair Tax "calculator" is hilarious.

Wont ALLOW you to put anything that matters.

Then shows you huge saving! 

 Those claims of  research did it! Who would lie about that?  They even named 80 "economist" who "designed"  it!!   No way that's a lie.

And their "calculator".

If anyone needs any proof these guys are literally lying bastards, the fraudulent calculator should help you figure it out.

The "DARE TO COMPARE"  calculator as they called it,  literally prevented you comparing anything.

That's right.  They had this amazingly complex "calculator" which asked you a bunch of questions, none of which had anything to do with your taxable expenditures.

NOT one thing-- no place for your rent (taxed) food (taxed) car and health insurance (taxed)  cable TV phone bill -- anything, and everything  you "expended"  - you could not enter.  

So the "calculator"  did not allow you to put in any information whatsoever that would tell you your tax obligation under Fairtax.  It was not difficult to learn what Fairxax would tax you, it was impossible. 

But they called it "DARE TO COMPARE"  calculator.  Then they made sure you could not compare.  

You don't accidentally make a fraudulent calculator. It took a lot of effort and money. 


Uh -- actually NONE of those they named as economists designed Fairtax. Not one. And as you will see, only one guy, who works for Fairtax, got paid by Beacon Hill, knew anything about the massive goofy "other taxes"   I show you

Plus, though I have offered 50,000 dollars of that research (see details) no one yet has been able to show one page of actual research.  
Gee- wonder why that is?

Just show one page -- you get 50K, per the details below.  If you don't want the money, that's fine, give it to charity.  

For six years now, no one has been able to show any of that "research" about this very very simple personal retail sales tax, to replace all other fed taxes. 

Neal Boortz and others said there were   22 million dollars of research. Go read his amazing and fraudulent book (Fraudulent in sense it's written to fool you, not to inform you.

Just a quick note -- Boortz "forgot"  to mention the "NIPA" taxes in any book, video or speech.  For 15 years he forgot. For two book publications, he forgot. In the thousands of radio shows to push this, he forgot.

I then hundreds of personal appearances, he forgot?

But as you will see the "NIPA"  taxes are massive.  And worse, those taxes can not -- literally can not -- be collected, as you will see. 

Oh the retail sales tax on new products at the store- - no problem.  But the tax would need to be 89%, not 23%.   Boortz and the other hustlers could only make it SEEM like 23%, because they "forgot" to mention the massive other impossible taxes,.



See all the "NIPA" references in Fairtax own document you would never see, if not for me?

Those "NIPA" taxes are a big part of Fairtax's massive other taxes you don't know about.



I put  up my own money -- 50K --for one page of their  22 million dollars of research.  They claim 22 million in research about this "very very simple" personal retail sales tax, you pay at the "point of purchase."    

Doesn't that sound formal and all?    A personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes, including Social Security and Medicare taxes.

So where is that research?  How about 1 page of it?    

That's what they claim -- 22 million dollars of research about this "very simple"  personal retail sales tax.  Just pay 23% retail sales tax, prices drop 22%, and you get a prebate every month to pay taxes on "necessities" anyway. 

No Social security taxes. No income taxes. No Medicare taxes. No corporate taxes. 

 Nothing but this "very very simple"  personal retail sale tax - and don't even worry about that. Prices drop anyway, and you get a huge increase in take home pay.   The average person, Neal Boortz told us, would get a 50% increase in take home pay, and prices DROP 22%.

Researched !  Eighty economist "designed"  Fairtax.  "The most researched economic plan in history" .    

Well, I read that "research"  so I can offer 50 thousand dollars for one page of it, (see details below)  because only an idiot would consider that crap research, and it sure as fuck is not research about  a simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed tax.

My sworn testimony about this  is at House Ways Means Committee.   Under oath.  Notice, none of those bastards go under oath and swear this is a very very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes?

And my money is on the table.  This 50K offer is real, legit, ask your attorney, and get full details below.



These lying bastards that made Fairtax -- with all the goofy ass fine print, and the lying bastards that made up the slogans, about a "very very simple" retail sales tax,  were not confused. 

 They knew very well Fairtax was a Scientology fund raising fraud, then a hustle by guys like Boortz and Huckabee.

Ask them to explain these fine print tricks.   Ask them how much your city county and state would have to pay.  

Go on, ASK them. Have them explain how much your city would have to pay in advance taxes on wages, pensions, etc.   They never make it clear, of course, because the fine print (mostly in the "research" documents)  are deliberately fraudulent,  meaning misleading.



If they only taxed person retail sales -- and nothing else --  the tax rate would be 89%, as President Bush Tax Panel showed.

Government investment is not just capital spending - but they tax capital expenditures in advance too.   But also taxed are wages, pensions, operational expenditures. 

All expenditures  by your city - taxed 23%.

All expenditures by your state - taxed 23%

All expenditures by our county - taxed 23%.


Mesquite Arizona would owe over 300,000 dollars, of taxes,
just for the pay to these new recruits, for one year!


Mesquite would owe over 14 million overall.


Gee -- the "details"   Fairtax "forgets" to mention in books videos and speeches.  It's only in their very slick bullshit fine print.

I wonder why they didn't mention these "other" taxes in their books, videos and speeches?   Not once. Not in 16 years.

Not in any book.

Not in any speech.

Not in any video.  

Weird. That's a lot of forgetting -- or a lot of  lying, by lying bastards. 


How do they tax wages and pensions?   Very cleverly, we show you. The important point is -- all such "expenditures" are in the "tax base".

All expenditures -- "consumption expenditures" is the silly misleading term in their fine print

And they told you  -- without exception.  Without exception all that "consumption expenditures"  are taxed. You had to read the fine print closely, but it's there, and there in a way to deceive you, not inform  you. 

  All consumption expenditures by "natural persons"  and all consumption expenditures by all city county and states.

Gee -- so it's NOT just a retail sales tax on human beings? 

Only a small part of Fairtax is that personal retail sales tax -- "at the point of purchase." 

All governments would be "certain employers"  who must pay this tax on "certain wages" - meaning all wages. 

The way these lying bastards put that, it makes you think this is some trivial detail about taxes on "household employees".  Very fucking clever, and fraudulent, that.    

But the way these fuckers use the "certain wages"  trick, ends up in their OWN FUCKING DOCUMENTS as a tax on essentially all expenditures by all government entities on all wages,etc.  The only exception is wages expended for education. They "remove" education expenditures from the "tax base"

Leaving all other "expenditures" in the tax base.   Very clever. And every fucking word they wrote, the intent was to deceive, not to inform.

Tax base is, by defintion, what they tax. So pay very very close attention to their double speak about their "tax base."  Wage and pension expenditures are in the tax base. 

They claim to have 22 million dollars of  research about a "very very simple"  personal retail sales tax?

Those fucking liars. 

I show you what these bastards hope you think is research -- and I explain why it's not only not research, but whatever those papers are, it's not a simple personal retail sales tax, paid "at point of purchase".

Fairtax  is a fund raising fraud by lying bastards. A fund raising fraud, said Bruce Bartlett, by Scientologists. 

It sounded good, though, to hustlers like Neal Boortz and  Mike Huckabee.   So they used it. 

 Just pay that 23% tax on what you purchase!   

Why don't they mention the massive other and impossible?  Because these massive other taxes are goofy and impossible. Yes, impossible.  Because it's a fraud, always was a fraud, and lying bastards do not generally expose their own frauds.



You might as well tax moonbeams and baby farts, as tax what Fairtax taxes, in the fine print.   One tiny example -a >30,000 dollar tax on this cancer victim.   Never mind she is on Medicare, in Fairtax fine print tricks, she is personally liable for over 30K in taxes, without exception.

Fairtax math is based on collecting these massive impossible taxes.


In the fine print, a huge tax on anything, everything, the "NIPA" defines as governmental expenditures (except education).

That's drastically different than, and drastically more than, retail sales.

  And they never told you. Not in any book. Not in any video. Not in any speech.  Never in a clear way, anyplace.

It's in the fine print, however, in very sneaky, fraudulent ways.  By fraudulent, we mean apparently written in a way to make you dumber about Fairtax, not to inform you of what they actually tax.

The tax base -- is where the big fraud is.

Who did this trickery? 

 Well, as you will see, Fairtax started as a fund raising scam by several Scientologist. Yes, it did.  And those bastards, now ex Scientologist, are still raising money on it.

But it SOUNDED so good, others adopted it.  We show you how that worked. 

They fooled me with  that "22 million dollars of research".   Now see why they run from $50,000 offer to show 1 page of that "research".


10 YEARS AGO.... 

.... everything we show you has been exposed politely, over a decade ago.  The facts are not in dispute, because we use Fairtax own documents. Remember that, we show you fairtax own documents. 


Want to see President Bush polite report exposing Fairtax fraud?  

Okay, it's right HERE

 Link opens to part 8.   The polite discussion of Fairtax, is part 9.

We are not so polite. 


Advance taxes?? ADVANCE???

On all cities,  for their wage expenditures?  Pension expenditures?  Capital expenditures?

Yes -- pay in ADVANCE. Hilarious shit, really. 

  A footnote in one of their "research" documents.
 Advance taxes on government wages, pensions and capital investments.  Hard to tell.  When were they going to tell you or anyone else? 

Well, is it their fault  you were too stupid to read the fine print? 

Seriously, whose fault is that? 



Sure it sounded  so amazing. Prices all drop, pay all goes up, the "only problem" will be where to put the money!!

  There will be so much money coming in, it will make the government too rich!  That's what Neal Boortz said.  But when that happens, he said, no problem. We just lower the tax!  The only problem will be too much money, but we can handle that?

What the fuck?


No one would lie about research, with names, and figures, and statistics, right?   Turns out,  yes, they would.  And did. 


A Simple retail sales tax of 23%?

To replace all other taxes?

No more Social Security Taxes?

No more Medicare Taxes?

No more corporate taxes?

We believed that shit. 

Till we read those lying bastard's fine print.

All consumption without exception.   That is what they tax.  All consumption "expenditures"  by people and by government, they cleverly include later.

Even "consumption" by Medicare patients is taxed, by this trick.  They "removed" education expenditures.  But all other expenditures, without exception, remain in the "tax base".

Tax base is what they tax.  

 "Certain wages"  a very clever example of their  way to include  trillions dollars of other taxes, into Fairtax math.

In other section, they told you about "persons."   Their definition of a person.  So that they can say "this is a personal retail sales tax' -- they do epic tricks of making all governments a "person".

And a very special kind of person, too.


JAMES BENNETT -- number two man in Fairtax fraud, claimed the single word "person" in this long defintion, is the "legal basis" for massive taxes on all cities, all counties, and all states.

When we asked Bennet how city county and states were supposed to know that -- because they never mention it in books videos or speeches, Bennett said "It's clear enough already..... if they have any questions, they can call me."

Bennett -- not someone else -- Bennett -- told me personally online that the definition of person is the legal basis for these massive taxes on city county and states.

Remember that - Bennett, their own guy, the #2 guy, told me the importance of that word "government"  in the definition of persons.  That one word --"person" means, according to their own attorney, their own #2 guy, that all city county and states  have to pay these taxes on all wages, all pensions, all expenditures other than education.

Operational expenditures for jails, court systems? Taxed 23%

All library expenditures- - including wages, pensions, buildings, capital investments -- taxed 23%.

All parks, all sewer, all highway, all everything (but education) is taxed 23%.  No, not just retail purchases -- thats miniscule. The huge taxes are wages, pensions, and capital investment, operational expenditures. That's all "in the tax base".

And it's there by virtue of the word "government" in the definition of a person. No where else. No indication elsewhere. 

And that is "clear enough already"  said Bennett, who is either an idiot or so caught up in the cult, or a fool, or a sap, or whatever.  But remember, their OWN guy justified these massive other taxes on the "legal basis" of this definition in HR25.

That is how they can "justify" the "TAX BASE"  to include federal state and local expenditures, as they do.

But here is how that  tax on all city county and states looked in HR25 -- way way down in a long list of blather, AFTER such defintions of things like "personal courier service"

This is the kind of shit they put endlessly in Fiartax HR25.

         ``(3) Designated commercial private courier service.--The 
        term `designated commercial private courier service' means a 
        firm designated as such by the Secretary or any sales tax 
        administering authority, upon application of the firm, if the 
                    ``(A) provides its services to the general public,
                    ``(B) records electronically to its data base kept 
                in the regular course of its business the date on which 
                an item was given to such firm for delivery, and
                    ``(C) has been operating for at least 1 year.
            ``(4) Education and training.--The term `education and 
        training' means tuition for primary, secondary, or 
        postsecondary level education, and job-related training 
        courses. Such term does not include room, board, sports 
        activities, recreational activities, hobbies, games, arts or  
        crafts or cultural activities.

What the fuck?  Do you think they did this this way, to inform you?  Or to fool you?

They did it to fool you. 

All cities are supposed to read that definition, way down in there, and somehow KNOW they are supposed to send over 1 trillion dollars into the fed government?

Where do send these many billions?  Hell, they don't give you an address.  They don't ever make it clear there is such a tax, it's in their own tax base documents.  It's how their math adds up. 

But they never make it clear. 

And city county and states - by their own fine print -- are supposed to raise all tax rates, to pay it. That's in their own document they call "research".  But stated in a way you would not notice it, even if you found that document.

Fairtax cleverly never tells you that in books, videos or speeches.


They just use a few words, here and there, but their math depends on it. Their math depends on all city county and states sending in taxes on wage, pension, and capital investments.  A tax even on operational expenditures.

And the very slick "we assume"  city county and states will raise their tax rates.

. It  is quite impossible, not difficult, to read that and assume your city county and state are to send in millions, even billions in advance taxes on wage, pensions, and capital expenditures.

But that is how these lying bastards added up the math -- as if all city county and states would actually pay all this money. 

So are they a fraud? FUCK YES, it's a fraud.

Here it is on the page in HR25.   That's the bill Woodall and the other lying bastards try to tell you is a "very very simple"  personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.

Remember too -- without all these goofy "other taxes"  like the taxes on all city county and states, just like President Bush Tax Panel reported, Fairtax rate would be 89%, not 23%.

And all city county and states, are supposed to "raise their tax rates" to pay it. 



Stupidly, Fairtax suckers usually get mad at me for showing them Fairtax lied to their dumb asses.  Hey - save your anger for the lying bastards, not me.

You should thank me.

The entire reason they used the fine print tricks -- if they don't use them, they would have to show an 89% sales ta

And as Bruce Bartlett showed, in National Review, the rate would be over 100%, because Fairtax claims all city county and states should use this clever tax too!

Cities are supposed to tax this way. Counties,  States. Everyone!

If so, that 89% would just be federal. Add a city tax like this, a county tax like this, a state tax like this, you would get well over 100% tax on retail sales.

Think they have 22 million dollars of research to back this up? 


Let that sink in. According to their OWN lawyer and # 2 man, James Bennett, Fairtax is based on massive taxes on every city, every county, every states.   And much of those taxes, your city county and state, have to pay IN ADVANCE.


 Of course, the Bush Tax Panel had no trouble finding the "research" documents, with HR25.    The tax panel is made up of PhDs, and they could eat the fine print tricks for breakfast, and spit them out for lunch.

The Tax Panel was polite --  far too polite in our humble opinion.  In private they called Fairtax liars "liars"  but in public, they were much more diplomatic.  

They should not have been diplomatic, because people did not pay attention to that soft spoken crap.  They showed the same things we do, but politely.   

There is a time and place for polite -- but not when showing frauds by lying bastards. 

In private, the head of Bush Tax panel said Fairtax folks  "lied a lot".  He is right -they claimed to be a "very simple"  personal retail sales tax.   That's a lie.

Like the massive taxes shown in their "TAX BASE". They tax government capital expenditures.

Also in the Fairtax tax base -- all Medicare and Medicaid expenditures, only the person "using or consuming" any goods or services are personally liable. No exceptions. 


Do you seriously think this cancer victim can, or should, pay 30,000 in fed taxes, just cause she got sick?   

No.  Why on earth should a woman with cancer pay  5 10 or 20 times as much fed tax, as her neighbor did, with exactly the same finances, other than her cancer?

But all such expenditures are in the "tax base" .   



Anyone can get the 50K -- this is a serious, legit, binding offer. 

First person who can show 1 page of that 22million dollars of research, showing Fairtax is a 23% personal retail sales tax, to replace all other fed taxes, I give them 50,000 dollars.  Full details on the offer is below. 


Fairtax sounds so good.  Simple retail sales tax, you get a prebate to pay your federal taxes on all "necessities".  And more -- no need to pay Social Security taxes, no need to any other fed tax -- just that a "very very simple"  retail sales tax.

Social security -- paid. Medicare -- paid.  No need for you to pay them, though rest assured, you will get Social Security and Medicare.

By a retail sales tax? 

And all that is researched!!  Not just made up by lying bastards, but researched -- 22 million of research.

Problem is, they have never been able to show 1 page of that 22 million in research.... See below.


In fact, Neal Boortz said with a straight face,  research shows the only real problem with Fairtax, is what to do with all the money!

 Research showed?  Really?   Not so much.

In fact, the guy Boortz said did the research, doesn't support Fairtax or anything like it. And he did no research on Fairtax at all.  See more below.

Yet Boortz said -- the only problem -- the government will have too much money.

We show you what these lying bastards try to pass off as research - yes they are lying bastards -- and you decide.  

Is hiding goofy impossible bullshit in your fine print, a few words here, inserted to fool people, is that research?

Fuck no This is research, and they do not have a dollars worth of it, much less 22 million dollars of it.

Oh they have documents -- from their own public relations company, that is no more research than your dog is.

We show you examples of that "research"  -- and even if people are dumb enough to consider that "research"  it sure as hell is not about a personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.



We never believed Boortz about "the only problem will be where to put all the money,"   but we did believe there was 22 million dollars of research,  and specifically Boortz pointed out Harvard Researcher Dale Jorgenson.  

 Who would lie that blatantly, and give all kinds of specific "facts"   Boortz claimed was proven by the research?   No one would lie like that -- specific, loud, proud claims. 

You could just contact that "researcher"  and ask.  So we DID.

We contacted about 12 of those "researchers"  -- none of whom did any research.   Some had read some Fairtax bullshit, and agreed with the bullshit, but none did the "research".

Only one guy -- from Beacon Hill, who was paid by Fairtax to put out the documents they fraudulently called research -- even knew what the hell Fairtax actually taxed.   The others didn't even know Fairtax had these massive other taxes!

So they list as "researchers"  folks who didn't even know what the hell was in the fine print -- they didn't even READ the fine print in the research they supposedly did!

That's right, we only found ONE person that Fairtax listed as economists who even knew what was in those clever words, in the documents they called "research".



Show us that one, please!

Boortz told us, in Fairtax book, as if he had all this research right there, that the "average" take home pay will go up 50%.

Uh -- actually nothing in their research shows that.  Nothing.  Zero.  If anything, their own "researcher"  Dale Jorgenson said that was not so.   You would have to donate -- yes donate -- all the money you used to pay in fed taxes, to your employer. Only THEN, said Jorgenson, could prices falL!   

Everyone -- get this -- everyone would have to DONATE (because HR25 does not require)  you do let your employer keep all the money you used to pay in taxes.

Only then -- this is from Jorgenson, remember that -- would it be possible for prices to go down!

And your employer, even if everyone (!) donated that money, does not have to lower prices.  There is nothing in HR25 about that either.  Yet Jorgeson explained that.  Your take home pay would have to stay the same, and you would have to donate that money to your employer for Boortz "all prices fall 22% to be even remotelyl possible.

Yet Boortz made it seem like Jorgenson proved the opposite.

It takes a special kind of lying bastard-- really it does -- to take your own "researcher" -- claim he proved some amazing "facts"   when that "researcher" said the OPPOSITE.   


But then everything about Fairtax was always a fraud, like their own "online calculator"!   As you will see, the "calculator" prevented, actually PREVENTED you from inserting any information about your taxable expenditures.

You literally are unable, in their own calculator, to put in any information that matters!  What they do ask, does not matter. They may as well ask you how many dogs your neighbor has, then say -- HERE IS THE RESULTS -- you save 50,000 dollars!

Yes, it's that goofy.

What research Boortz?

Highest sales tax won't matter!

 "A  WASH"    All prices drop, per research.

Uh - no.   The "research"  done by Dale Jorgenson was not about Fairtax, anyway.  He ran the numbers on hypotehticals, which is not research anyway.  But Jorgenson said the OPPOSITE of what Boortz claimed.  Prices do not go down, they go UP with sales taxes,   Remember, Boortz made it seem like Jorgenson said they went DOWN 22%.

 The tax is 23%, to prices go DOWN 22% -- "it's a wash".   Everything costs the same.   Bull fucking shit.  

  Only -- remember this -- only if everyone in USA donates to their employer what they used to pay in income and social security taxes,  THEN maybe, theoretically, can prices go down. IF everyone lets their employer keep all the money they used to pay in taxes, then maybe the employer can lower prices. Hilarious.



Fairtax had no choice.

Fairtax wanted their plan in writing -- HR25, and the "supporting research"  they claimed proved all the wonderful things. 

To make the math add up, Fairtax has a problem.   It would take an 89% tax, not 23%, to get enough revenue, if they only taxed retail sales,

 Retail sales are only about 4 trillion dollars. To get 3.5 trillion as a retail sales tax, they would have to tax retail sales about 90%.


Think Houston city council  will see these footnotes in one document, see the definition of wages in another,  and send in over 100 million?.   





Grover Norquest pushed Fairtax first -- then suddenly stopped.  Same thing with CATO.  They pushed it, suddenly stopped.  We don't know why.

Did they finally read the fine print?

Who is behind Fairtax now? Who paid Boortz? Who paid Beacon Hill (see below)?

Hard to tell, it might be this guy. 

 Someone had to pay these folks -- especially Beacon Hill. They are a public relations company, they do not work for free.

Who paid them?   We don't know!   Might be Steven Hayes.

Scientology & Fairtax


Fairtax web site shows Steven Hayes is the top in "Leadership".

A former Scientologist, it seems to us he is  more of a grifter -- raising money.   Not that folks don't often try to raise money to enrich themselves, for some dubious cause they know is nonsense. And that's fine.   It's political theater, not necessarily fraud.

Raising money on political hustles is legal, as far as we know. 

But Hayes gets the money from folks who probably believe Fairtax is a very simple personal retail sales tax,  and that he has, or someone has, all this amazing research.  

It's not a personal retail sales tax, it's not even a tax code. It's political theater. 


Former Scientologist.  Full time grifter?

Bruce Bartlett, in National Review, relied on the fine print to point out, Fairtax would actually be over 100%--because the 80-89% would be just federal sales  tax. 

The cities, county, and states have their OWN sales taxes.

So -- if Fairtax somehow passed, and they only taxed retail sales, the tax rate would be wacko high.  No -- Fairtax does not intend to pass their own fraud.  It was always political theater, not a tax code. 


Bartlett also pointed out -- Scientologist hustlers contacted him, to have him push Fairtax.  Bartlett showed, on CBS, that Fairtax was connected with Scientology.  Indeed, it is.

The head of Fairtax,  Steven Hayes, is  former Scientologist, who appears to be something of a grifter, for Fairtax.  He raises money to "promote" Fairtax.  From things he wrote, it seems Steven wants the "big donors" to himself

Are Hayes and others actually trying to pass Fairtax?

No. Not at all, apparently.  

 They love the issue, however.   They love to raise money from suckers, on the basis of being a "very simple" retail sales tax.


OVER 100%

Bartlett showed that city county and states would also have "sales taxes"  on top of that, putting the real-world rate over 100, to a customer walking in a store to buy a jacket or couch.  

Did Fairtax hustlers KNOW this?

OF COURSE they knew. They knew this the entire time, it's the hustlers who put in the fine print tricks.

I doubt Huckabee knows any of this -- nor does he seem to care.   Huck would be an idiot to push something that, if passed, would make him leave the country in shame.

Did anyone tell Huck about these massive other taxes?  To hear Huck speak, Fairtax is almost magical, and just a very simple tax on retail sales.

Bartlett knew -- President Bush Tax Panel knew.  But Fairtax fine print tricks are so clever, you'd have to be much smarter than most people to notice, and you would have to discard the bullshit by Boortz, the Fairtax books, etc. You'd have to ONLY go by the fine print and math.

Fairtax hustlers tried to get Bartlett to push Fairtax.   Instead he exposed them.



For a quicker way to see their fraud -- see their "calculator trick".  Same deception, just on this calculator fraud.Calculator fraud -- see how they did it


See the part about "total consumption??   Retail sales is only part of that.


You will never see Fairtax do a side by side comparison of before -after Fairtax, listing all consumption.

You are about to find out why.

Because Joe  had so much consumption (mostly due to medical consumption) his Fairtax would be 57,000 or more.

But even without that surgery, Joe's fed tax would be 300% higher, under Fairtax.

Even if Joe's wife never had a health issue -- his federal tax would STILL be over 20,000 dollars, an increase of 300%

Gee, I wonder why they never showed anything like this?

But millions of people do have health problems and consumption for it.  Maybe insurance pays it -- the person is still liable. No exceptions. The person using the goods or services is obligated to pay  it --no exceptions. That's basic to Fairtax math.  Remember that. 


These documents from Beacon Hill are in no way research, and are not about a very simple personal retail sales tax.

Beacon Hill office claim to be an "education organization".  Well if selling you a hustle is educational, okay

They do public relations, they support whatever they are paid to support.   . 

Someone put a lot of money into Fairtax -- and they paid Boortz, and Beacon Hill, plus for buses, and "education" web sites.   The "Fairtax calculator" fraud, was paid by the same  hustlers.

Boortz said someone offered him a jet like this to fly him around and push Fairtax.  We don't know who paid Boortz or owns all this.  Apparently, they also tried to hire Bruce Bartlett, who refused, and instead, exposed Fairtax fraud.



The guy who Boortz said proved all this great stuff about Fairtax,  Dale Jorgenson, did no such thing, and is not for Fairtax.

Kotlikoff was well paid, according to his friend Bruce Bartlett, for pushing Fairtax.  We repeat -- Kotlikoff did no research, in the definition here, about Fairtax as a very simple personal retail sales tax, because his writings show these massive other goofy taxes, if you read them very very very closely, and ignore the hustle, the overall spin he uses, such as "Taxing Sales --what rate works".

You'd naturally think, see they just tax sales. Oh hell no.   

What he did, was clever, and perhaps technically he did not lie, because he parsed words with "assumptions"  and clever definitions, such as defintion of a person, to fool you.

But in our opinion, it seems clear he was lying his ass off, cleverly, and got paid for it.   He got paid to do this.  And he did it.  But the documents he put out are NOT, NOT, NOT about a very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes.

And while he tried to give that impression, he never exactly said it was a simple retail sales tax on personal retail items.  That kind of lying he left to Boortz, Huckabee and others. 

Kotlikoff is apparently in charge of making Fairtax seem like a very sophisticated bit of "research". 

Did Kotlikoff actually lie for Fairtax?   

Maybe not, We would call it lying, as it was deliberately deceptive. 

  Kotlikoff never said it was only a retail sales tax that was logical, did  he? No. He wrote shit like "we assume"  and the tricky defintions of their tax base. 


Boortz cleverly created his own "critics" --  and wrote a book to refute the critics.   Hilarious.  

He of course never showed you any of what we show. 



It's easy to miss.   David Kendall, who used to push Fairtax enthusiastically,  and is a PhD, had no clue either.  

Tax wages?   Tax capital expenditure?  No no no, David  said. He insisted he studied Fairtax carefully.   They just tax personal retail consumption.

So we showed him the massive other taxes.


FINE PRINT on Details of offer-- 

We were not kidding. $50,000 dollars paid to the first person who can show one page of the 22 million dollars of Fairtax research proving this "very very simple" personal retail sales tax  of 23% would replace all other fed taxes in "revenue neutral" fashion.

We have offered this to Boortz, for years.  To any charity he names, or he can keep it, we don't care.

We make the same offer to you, or anyone. We don't care -- you can't collect the 50K, because there is no 22 million dollars of Fairtax research -- and certainly not about a very very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxes!

Hiding goofy fraud in your own fine print -- then call that research -- is  not research. Too complicated? 

Plus, since that supposed "research"  has massive other taxes, like the impossible taxes on city county and states, for wage and other expenditures, it can't be research about a very simple personal retail sales tax to replace all other fed taxed.

Ask your attorney.

 Here are important details . If you are going  sue to collect the 50,000, you must file suit in Tazwell County  Illinois, and are hereby obligated to pay all my attorney fees,  if  you do not collect the 50K offer. 

My name is Mark Curran.  My email address is  I live near Peoria IL.  

And my attorney fees include cost of travel, research, communication with me and with the court and with your attorney or yourself.   You must pay those to me,  or to my attorney, if you do not prevail in court

 You must also pay for all your  attorney fees, travel  any  and other costs related to the suit, regardless of outcome.

See how fine print tricks matter?

I knew that you could!
