And therein lies the rub. The government does not want us knowing the amount of our money that goes to taxes. The government would lose control if income tax were done away with. People don't realize that they are paying all those corporate taxes when they make a purchase because it is not on their receipt. The Fair Tax bill was introduced in SC for the second time on March 30, 2011. I hope it will pass this time. I believe that the states need to get this going before the feds pick up on it. I relocated to SC in 2005 from NY and had not heard of Fair Tax until then. I am now a fervent advocate and am constantly talking about it with friends from NY.
