Flat Tax Revolution: Using a Postcard to Abolish the IRS

Recorded on September 14, 2005

Location: The Heritage Foundation's Allison Auditorium

File your taxes on a postcard? Impossible! Guess again, says Steve Forbes.

In fact, countries around the world have freed their taxpayers to do just that - and we can, too, with a simple flat tax that will slash tax rates, spur economic growth, and put the IRS out of business. In Flat Tax Revolution, you'll learn: How a simple 17 percent flat tax will save you time, money, and worry … why the flat tax will eliminate the IRS, its bureaucrats, its paperwork, its nightmares, and its hassles … why the flat tax will create jobs, and bring back ones we've lost overseas … how other countries are already reaping the benefits of a flat tax system … how the flat tax will stop special interests getting tax breaks at your expense … how the flat tax will eliminate shady accounting in business (something that our current tax system encourages) … why the Forbes Flat Tax is also a tax cut … and what you can do to make the flat tax a reality. As Steve Forbes shows, the flat tax shouldn't be a partisan issue - it should be a taxpayer issue.
