Re: “The Good News About Income Taxes: The Bite's Not As Bad As You Think.

I think the writer needs to grasp the concept of embedded taxes. The taxes we pay which are visible on or W2's and 1040's are just the tip of the iceberg, the majority of our tax burden is hidden in the prices of goods and services, and makes up about 22.4%, on average, of the price of everything we produce in America. Combined with Payroll tax, that makes the true tax rate for the working poor, who THINK they pay no federal tax, 28.34% and it is higher for the middle class. By replacing the payroll and income tax with a sales tax, the FairTax does not increase that burden.

What the FairTax does is to make these hidden taxes visible, but we already pay them, we just don't see them now.
