Are you ready? Your taxes are due in two months. Good luck because as FairTax spokesman Denis Calabrese, said on FOX Business yesterday, “The current tax code is easy to cheat if you’re dishonest and it’s impossible to comply with if you’re honest. The IRS cannot literally tell you how to comply with its own code.”
Also consider: Our parents and grandparents have watched our nation grow, get buffeted, then come back to move forward once again. But would the past generation expect us to be dealing with the same, although ever expanding, embarrassment of a tax code today, in 2011, that started the 20th century? Would they have predicted that over 20 years after the Communist system in the USSR fell, Americans would still be submerged in a system that taxes our production? Or, that the IRS admits most citizens have to pay for tax assistance just to send their money to Washington?
