Welcome to Nebraskans Supporting the Fair Tax – the Nebraska arm of Americans For Fair Taxation, the organization promoting the FAIRtax®!  We support AFFT’s efforts to replace the Federal Income Tax with a national consumption sales tax, thereby eliminating the IRS.

At the state level, we promote principles of good taxation — to eliminate confiscatory taxes and replace them with broad-based, flat consumption taxes.  By taxing only consumers we recognize what Pres. Calvin Coolidge knew, “in the end [taxes] come out of the people who toil.”  Informing fellow Nebraskans and our legislators of this truth will help Nebraska become more economically attractive among our neighboring states.

On 1/23/20, Senator Steve Erdman of Bayard introduced LR 300 CA, the EPIC tax reform bill, which combines Nebraska’s “three legged stool” into one consumption-based tax, eliminating confiscatory taxes on both property and income.

Adjusting any existing tax falls short of real reform.  It still leaves confiscatory taxation in place.  The Framers of this country’s Constitution provided for a system of taxation that honors our property rights.  We are on the move in Nebraska — restructuring Nebraska’s system of taxation to return those rights to Nebraskans once again.

Dan Pilla's Ten Principles of Federal Taxation

Want to understand why you should take a good look at the FAIRtax?  Dan Pilla is one of the foremost tax experts in the country.  He is considered to be “the nation’s leader in taxpayers’ rights defense and IRS abuse prevention and cure” according to The Heartland Institute.  If you don’t like to read and have time, you may watch his presentation on The Heartland Institute’s website.   If you do not have the hour that takes, you may glance at his analysis in writing.  In either case, you will understand good and bad taxation better than you ever have before!

Should the IRS Be Abolished?

Can it be fixed?  Take a look at this Washington Examiner article.

A Little Tax History

On April 15, what better day than for historian, Bill Federer, to come out with an article on the history of the income tax and its nefarious impact on American life:

American Minute on Tax Day

The Income Tax: Root of all Evil

When I talk to people about the Fair Tax®, I ask them this question:  Among three major forms of taxes – the property tax, income and related taxes (withholding, estate tax), and a consumption tax – which one respects our unalienable right to property?  The property tax is pretty obvious – especially on non-income producing property like our residences.  When we pay property tax to the state at the risk of losing our house to a tax sale, we really do not own it; we rent it from the government.  How about income?  Is not the income we earn our own property?  If this is not so obvious, take a look at this classic article from the The Ludwig von Mises Institute.

Fair Tax® Can Be Applied at the State Level

We have been asked if the Fair Tax® concept can be applied at the state level.  It most certainly can, and Nebraska Fair Tax ® has developed a proposal to replace Nebraska’s income tax and sales tax with strictly a consumption tax.

It would eliminate the state income tax and all its related taxes, including both the state withholding tax and the state inheritance tax.  The details of the proposal may be found in this PDF file.

The Problem with Property Taxes

Until recently most activists considered the Fair Tax to be a national (Federal) issue.  We now consider it to be a state level issue as well.  Why?  No better case can be made than this from David Barton and Rick Green as they interview Texas State Representative Phil King.  Do other forms of taxes, like the property tax, violate our moral code?  Just listen to this!
