I’ve been a stock car racing fan all my life, but I didn’t know it until my dad took me to my first stock car race. There’s no doubt that millions of Americans are FAIRtax fans and don’t know it because they haven’t been introduced to the FAIRtax and don’t know about all the fantastic things it will do for them.

In this week’s FAIRtax Power Radio, Bob and Bob go through a list of specific things that the FAIRtax will do for small (...

We’ve all heard the horror stories about the mess at the IRS. We’ve heard how many of their printers and copiers don’t work because they’re out of ink. We’ve heard about how old and unreliable their computer system is, and we’ve heard how multiplied thousands of refunds have been delayed as the agency deals with a massive backlog of unprocessed returns.

What we didn’t know until just recently is that one of the ways the IRS chose ...

Unless you’ve been a coma for the past twelve months, you’ve no doubt noticed that inflation is back in the American economy at a level that hasn’t been seen in forty years. As the inflation monster hungrily gobbles up more and more of our purchasing power, people are desperately searching for a weapon to slay the monster with.

In his quarterly Walle’s FAIRtax World, CPA Jade Walle looks at some of the variables in play in the Amer...

No one likes spending hours filling out all the complicated forms that make up a tax return. Even taxpayers with relatively simple returns either buy tax preparation software or pay a professional tax preparer to do their taxes for them. Either way, it takes a lot of time, effort and money to comply with our insanely complicated and convoluted tax code. So, it’s no wonder that the thought of doing your taxes in five minutes soun...

Unless you have a mountain of campaign cash to contribute to a politician, it can be really hard to get that politician’s attention and convince him/her to support the FAIRtax. Currently, the FAIRtax bill has 29 cosponsors in the House. Adding in the primary sponsor, that’s 30 FAIRtax supporters out of 435 House members. A FAIRtax bill hasn’t even been introduced in the Senate in this Congress. Clearly, getting politicians on ...

It’s been said that the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result. For decades criminals and fraudsters have demonstrated just how easy it is to defraud the IRS. Illegal tax evasion now runs close to a trillion dollars a year. Identity thieves steal millions of dollars filing fake tax returns in other people’s names. Other criminals have hundreds of fraudulent refunds sent to ...

The income tax system imposes a crushing burden on the American people above and beyond the actual taxes people owe. Americans spend a staggering amount of both time and money doing all that’s necessary in order to comply with an ever changing and ever increasingly complex tax code.

In this special “Tax Day” edition of FAIRtax Power Radio, the Guys turn to CPA Jade Walle for some insight on just how much our antiquated income tax s...

In their regular look at congress.gov, the FAIRtax Guys uncovered HR 7271, the “Putting Gas Money Back in Your Pocket Act”. In reviewing some articles on the subject, they discovered that there are actually several different proposals to reimburse the American people for the extra money they’ve had to spend at the gas pumps in recent months.

While the details of these different proposals may vary, they all have one thing in common—...

You wouldn’t put up with it for an instant if your mother-in-law tried to tell you how much of your own money you can put away for your retirement or how much you can withdraw from your savings. That’s none of her business. Yet, people continue to tolerate the IRS doing the exact same thing. And the IRS really has no more business manipulating your personal finances than your mother-in-law has.

In this edition of FAIRtax Power R...

Any way you look at it, the IRS is a failed institution. Millions of tax returns go unprocessed delaying refunds for millions of taxpayers. Phone calls go unanswered. Jobs go unfilled. Antiquated equipment doesn’t work, and tax evasion is running rampant costing the government nearly $1 trillion a year. Lest you think this is a recent phenomenon, the FAIRtax Guys discuss an informative article that shows these problems aren’t ...

In that process, Bob P...

Earlier it was announced that the IRS would enhance security on its web site by requiring would be users to verify their identity with a third-party vendor, ID.me. The process would involve submitting a face scan along with selfie photos of the user with copies of recent utility or insurance bills. In this edition of FAIRtax Power Radio, we detail why the IRS simply can’t be trusted to keep this intimately personal data safe from...

The FAIRtax Guys begin this episode by going where no congress.gov segment has gone before. It’s an astonishing look at exactly why the current tax code is over 75,000 pages of incomprehensible gobbledygook that no one can understand.
Then, the Guys expose one of the IRS’s dirty little secrets. With illegal income tax evasion costing the government nearly a trillion dollars a year, you’d think the IRS would be going after wealthy ...

In this special extended edition of FAIRtax Power Radio, CPA and AFFT board member Jade Walle presents the first Walle’s FAIRtax World of 2022.

Last week the FAIRtax Guys found an unbelievable piece of insanity on page 76 of IRS Publication 17. That’s the document intended to give individuals all the information they need to know in order to fill out their 2021 Federal tax returns. So, thinking that there must be more gold buried in those 140 pages, the Guys continued digging and found this little gem—The Taxpayer’s Bill of Rights.
On page 125, the IRS lists ten “rights” ...

In this milestone episode of FAIRtax Power Radio, we take our first look at congress.gov for 2022. As usual, what some of the Congress Critters want to put in the tax code make the best arguments for pulling the whole thing out by the roots and replacing it with the FAIRtax.
Then, the Guys dig into something truly unbelievable—IRS Publication 17. It started with a meme on social media purporting to be an excerpt from an official I...
