In 2005, firebrand radio talk show host Neal Boortz and Georgia congressman John Linder created The FairTax Book, presenting the American public with a bold new plan designed to eliminate federal taxes and the IRS, jump-start the US economy, bring back lost industries and jobs, and recapture billions of untaxed dollars currently hoarded by criminal and offshore businesses. Their book became an immediate #1 New York Times bestseller, igniting a powerful grassroots tax reform movement that’s spreading like wildfire across our nation.

Now, several years later, the authors are back to answer the outspoken and misinformed critics of their innovative proposal. Offering stunning new insights not covered in the original book, FairTax: The Truth debunks the negative myths and gross misrepresentations of this groundbreaking idea. The FairTax plan is simple, brilliant, and it will work—enabling you to keep all the money in your paycheck; eliminating the fraud, hassle, and waste of our current system; and revolutionizing the way America pays for itself.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Boortz and Linder—a Libertarian radio show host and a Republican congressman, respectively—consider the attacks levied at the FairTax (divided into those ‘Worth Answering’ and those ‘Barely Worth Dismissing’) and respond snappily with considered arguments, demonstrating for instance how consumers already shoulder retail prices inflated by taxes on production and distribution.”
