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.
Interested? Please email our president and state co-director, Rob Rohrbough, at:
Just flattening the current tax on income is not real reform; it is tweaking! If you are fed up with the Federal Income Tax, you are not alone! Here are some stories from others who agree with you:
UPDATE! We have adjusted our schedule so proven fiscal conservative and taxpayer advocate, Bill Kintner, can join Kris Pierce to talk about issues that matter to taxpayers.
Kris Pierce, Certified County Assessor, will discuss the nature of property taxes in Douglas County as well as how the offices of the Assessor and Register of Deeds work. There are several sources of tax revenue in Nebraska, and property taxes are a major one.
A recent FAIRtax convert, Bill Kintner will talk a little about the Sarpy County Assessor’s Office but more about his four year fight in the Unicameral to control spending, reduce taxes, and reign in burdensome regulations — and the impact they have on taxpayers.

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:
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.
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.
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!
