GOP members from the House of Representatives will be voting for legislation that would put an end to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) and switch the federal income tax with the national consumption tax.
Fox News Digital reported that the House will be voting on the Fair Tax Act, brought back by Georgian GOP Rep. Buddy Carter.
This act specifically focuses on the removal of the federal income tax and getting command over the IRS. This act will additionally be switching several other miscellaneous taxes with just one consumption tax.
The voting on the legislation was made as an integral part of the settlement between the individuals from the House Freedom Caucus and the Californian GOP House Speaker, Kevin McCarthy, and it was brought forward as McCarthy was pursuing the position of House Speaker in the previous week.
“Cosponsoring this Georgia-made legislation was my first act as a Member of Congress and is, fittingly, the first bill I am introducing in the 118th Congress,” Carter said in a press release exclusively obtained by Fox News Digital.
“Instead of adding 87,000 new agents to weaponize the IRS against small business owners and middle America, this bill will eliminate the need for the department entirely by simplifying the tax code with provisions that work for the American people and encourage growth and innovation,” Carter continued.
“Armed, unelected bureaucrats should not have more power over your paycheck than you do,” he added.
“As a former small business owner, I understand the unnecessary burden our failing income tax system has on Americans,” said Rep. Jeff Duncan, R-S.C., in a statement. “The Fair Tax Act eliminates the tax code, replaces the income tax with a sales tax, and abolishes the abusive Internal Revenue Service. If enacted, this will invigorate the American taxpayer and help more Americans achieve the American Dream.”
“I support the Fair Tax because it simplifies our tax code,” said Rep. Bob Good, R-Va., in a statement. “This transforms the U.S. tax code from a mandatory, progressive, and convoluted system to a fully transparent and unbiased system which does away with the IRS as we know it. It is good for our economy because it encourages work, savings, and investment. Thank you to my colleague Rep. Buddy Carter for leading this effort to simplify the system for American taxpayers.”
“I’m very proud to once again co-sponsor the FairTax (sic) Act,” said Rep. Kat Cammack, R-Fla., in a statement. “We’ve seen a continued growth of the IRS and a persistent punishment of hardworking Americans via the tax code. What we’re calling for is a simplified and fair code that works for all, not just some.”
“I urge my colleagues to support this commonsense legislation that fights back against the weaponization of the IRS and stops punishing those who work hard to succeed,” she added.
The legislation will be responsible for abolishing the corporate income taxes, and the federal individual taxes, and furthermore, it will eradicate the IRS. The bill will also introduce a federal sales tax.
The IRS is looking forward to employing more than 85,000 new agents except if the congressional GOP members can prohibit it.
Moreover, the legislation will also eliminate payroll, gift, and death taxes. It would also be replacing the ongoing tax code with a federal consumption tax
