Constitution Party on Tax Reform

 

 


Tariffs to replace income tax, payroll tax, & estate tax

The Internal Revenue Service is the enforcement arm of the Federal government's present unjust tax system. We propose legislation to abolish the Internal Revenue Service and will veto any authorization, appropriation or continuing resolution which contains any funding whatsoever for that illicit and unconstitutional agency. We are opposed to the flat-rate tax, national sales tax, and value added tax proposals that are being promoted as an improvement to the current tax system. The Sixteenth Amendment does not provide authority for an un-apportioned direct tax. Moreover, it is our intention to replace, with a tariff based revenue system supplemented by excise taxes, the current tax system of the U.S. government (including income taxes, payroll taxes and estate taxes.)

The federal income tax is unconstitutional

Since 1913, our Constitutional rights to life, liberty, and property have been abridged and diminished by the imposition on each of us of Federal income, payroll, and estate taxes. This is an unconstitutional Federal assumption of direct taxing authority
