    WASHINGTON EXAMINER ^ | JULY 1, 2013 - 6:10PM | STEVE CONTORNO
    Sen. Ted Cruz is joining Tea Party activists in calling on Congress to abolish the Internal Revenue Service as the freshman lawmaker made the case from tax reform. The Texas Republican on Monday said news that the IRS targeted the nonprofit applications of conservative-leaning political groups was an "inspiration" because of how it has sparked "normal American citizens that are standing up for liberty." In the wake of the IRS scandal, Tea Party groups have repeatedly called for the agency to close its doors, and Cruz, a hero of the conservative movement, echoed their sentiments. "It is a challenge that...

    U.S. states could collect millions of dollars in online sales taxes, with members of both parties in Congress sponsoring legislation Thursday that would resolve states' decades-long struggle to tax businesses beyond their borders. "Small businesses and states alike are suffering from the inability to collect due — not new — taxes from purchases made online," said Rep. Steve Womack, R-Ark., adding the legislation is a "bipartisan, bicameral, common-sense solution that promotes states' rights and levels the playing field for our Main Street businesses." Legislation on the Amazon tax, named for the colossal Internet retailer, has languished for years. ..... <...

    Press Release | Jan. 5, 2011 | U. S. Rep Rob Woodall
    Washington, DC—On Wednesday, January 5, 2011, Congressman Rob Woodall (GA-07) introduced H.R. 25, the FairTax. The FairTax legislation eliminates the current income tax paradigm and replaces it with a system of taxation based on consumption. The bill was introduced on Wednesday with 47 original co-sponsors—the most original co-sponsors the bill has ever had for its initial introduction. “I committed to the Seventh District of Georgia that my efforts in Congress would focus on reclaiming freedom for the American people. It is for that reason that I am proud to make the FairTax—the only bill that restores transparency and simplicity to...

    Americans For fair Taxation ^ | November 5, 2008 | Ken Hoagland
    There is much to say in these, the days after the election so I'll be brief as I share a few thoughts about the FairTax in the days ahead.FairTax.org is non-partisan, but I know the same cannot be said for many of our supporters. And, as such, I suspect yesterday's results came as a disappointment for some. For me, I look at things through many lenses--as a father, as a taxpayer, as an American, as National Communications Director for FairTax.org. For my FairTax.org role in particular, I see both challenges and incredible opportunities in the days ahead for our great...

    The U.S. Tax Code is a perennial whipping boy, and rightly so. It’s unfair and horribly complex. But the current system does have certain virtues that go unsung. For starters, the current system is “in place.” All the compliance and collection mechanisms of the Internal Revenue Service are up and running, and have been since ratification of the 16th Amendment in 1913. Also, the current system brings in around $2.5 trillion. It would be way more than enough to fund the federal government were it not for earmarks, pork and programs for which the feds have no constitutional authority. But...

Linder’s bill, H.R. 25, would abolish all federal income taxes, death taxes, capital gains taxes, and payroll taxes, and replace them with a national retail sales tax. “The momentum behind the FairTax continues to build, and Majority Leader DeLay’s co-sponsorship is just the latest signal that support for the FairTax is growing,” said...

But a lot of small Internet businesses and individual transactions float under the radar.
