Welcome!

Welcome to Nebraskans Supporting the Fair Tax – the Nebraska arm of Fair Tax®!  We bring you the Nebraska version of eliminating the income tax – at least at the state level.  Secretly, OK, nationally, we want to engage in the fight to eliminate the IRS.  It just includes fighting to help Nebraska become more economically attractive among our neighboring states.  Questons?  Please email us at:  NotTheIRS@nefairtax.org.  Why?  Because it’s, NotTheirs@nefairtax.org!

Should the IRS Be Abolished?

Can it be fixed?  Take a look at this Washington Examiner article.

A Little Tax History

On April 15, what better day than for historian, Bill Federer, to come out with an article on the history of the income tax and its nefarious impact on American life:

The Fair Tax® Calculator

Want to know how you might fare under the Fair Tax®?  The Fair Tax® Calculator makes it easy to find out.  The first question is how much you make.  You do not have to disclose this amount to anyone else.  It is for your own calculations.  Furthermore, with the Fair Tax®, you do not have to tell anyone else how much you make.  Ever!  Take a look for yourself:

The Income Tax: Root of all Evil

When I talk to people about the Fair Tax®, I ask them this question:  Among three major forms of taxes – the property tax, income and related taxes (withholding, estate tax), and a consumption tax – which one respects our unalienable right to property?  The property tax is pretty obvious – especially on non-income producing property like our residences.  When we pay property tax to the state at the risk of losing our house to a tax sale, we really do not own it; we rent it from the government.  How about income?  Is not the income we earn our own property?  If this is not so obvious, take a look at this classic article from the The Ludwig von Mises Institute.

Fair Tax® Can Be Applied at the State Level

We have been asked if the Fair Tax® concept can be applied at the state level.  It most certainly can, and Nebraska Fair Tax ® has developed a proposal to replace Nebraska’s income tax and sales tax with strictly a consumption tax.

It would eliminate the state income tax and all its related taxes, including both the state withholding tax and the state inheritance tax.  The details of the proposal may be found in this PDF file.

Fair Tax® is Non-partisan

For those of you who think the Fair Tax® movement is somewhat partisan, watch this impassioned testimony from a Democrat who disagrees with almost everything conservatives believe in:

Here, from Oklahoma, is how the Fair Tax® fits into the Democrat Party’s five principles for tax reform.  Say that is just why Fair Tax® advocates say Democrats should support the Fair Tax®?  Check out the website, Democrats for Fair Tax®.

The Problem with Property Taxes

Until recently most activists considered the Fair Tax to be a national (Federal) issue.  We now consider it to be a state level issue as well.  Why?  No better case can be made than this from David Barton and Rick Green as they interview Texas State Representative Phil King.  Do other forms of taxes, like the property tax, violate our moral code?  Just listen to this!

Let's not punish the poor!

We believe that income taxes are regressive by their nature – punishing the poor and middle class in spite of their usual name of “progressive”.  Very appropriately, our first article comes from The Objective Conservative and the Platte Institute, both quoting the Tax Foundation‘s William McBride:

Income Taxes Punish the Poor, Investment and Economic Growth

Kudos to all three organizations!
