Hello I'm Sara from TurboTax with some information about the fair tax. You may have heard the term fair tax in the news and wonder what it is and how it may effect you? The short answer is the fair tax won't effect you when you prepare your tax return. The term fair tax was coined in 1994 by the founders of the Americans for Fair Taxation who proposed replacing the U.S. income tax with the consumption tax, much like a state sales tax. Although this movement eventually lost steam proponents believed that a 23 percent federal sales tax would be fairer then the current income tax. Supporters argue that this would result in businesses hiring more workers. And overall allow tax payers to focus on more productive activities rather then spending time planning on how to minimize their income tax. As you may expect even more people were against this tax, which is why the U.S. congress never passed this type of legislation. Many lawmakers were concerned that the tax would create a black market, meaning the merchants would offer lower prices by not paying the federal sales tax. But what really alarmed opponents was that they believed the tax would result in the middle and lower classes paying most of the taxes while the wealthy enjoyed a significant tax cut. For the time being the income tax as we know it does not appear to be going anywhere. At least not any time soon. For more tax tips and guidance visit TurboTax.com.
Hola soy Sara de TurboTax con un poco de información acerca del impuesto justo. Puedes haber oído el término impuesto justo en las noticias y te preguntas qué es y cómo puede afectarte. La respuesta corta es que el impuesto justo no te afectará cuando prepares tu declaración de impuestos. El término impuesto justo fue acuñado en 1994 por los fundadores de Americans for Fair Taxation quienes propusieron sustituir el impuesto sobre la renta de Estados Unidos con el impuesto al consumo, similar a un impuesto estatal a la venta. Aunque este movimiento perdió fuerza con el tiempo sus defensores creían que un 23% de impuesto federal a las ventas sería más justo que el impuesto sobre la renta actual. Los partidarios argumentan que esto daría lugar a la contratación de empresas de más trabajadores y, en general, permitiría a los contribuyentes centrarse en actividades más productivas en lugar de gastar tiempo en la planificación de cómo reducir al mínimo tu impuesto sobre la renta. Como se puede esperar todavía más personas estaban en contra de este impuesto, razón por la cual el Congreso de EE.UU nunca aprobó este tipo de legislación. Muchos legisladores se preocupaban de que el impuesto crearía un mercado negro, es decir, comerciantes que ofrecen precios más bajos por no pagar el impuesto federal a las ventas. Pero lo que realmente alarmó a los opositores era que creían que el impuesto se traduciría en que las clases medias y bajas pagarían la mayor parte de los impuestos, mientras que los ricos disfrutaban de un recorte fiscal significativo. Por el momento, el impuesto sobre la renta como lo conocemos parece que no va a ninguna parte. Al menos no en el corto plazo.
