Determine your household's estimated national sales tax rate and costs, after your prebate and tax free spending exemptions are considered.

All dollar amounts should be estimated on an annual basis. Input your choices in section 2 and your household's annual FairTax prebate will be calculated. The prebate, along with your other FairTax exemped spending amounts in sections 3-8, will be subtracted automatically from the gross income provided in section 1. Your personalized FairTax rate will then be calculated.

1. List your Annual Gross Household Income: (All funds from all sources, including gross wages, cash receipts, cash from liquidated savings and investments, cash gifts or inheritance received, retirement & social security benefits, child support & public assistance received, receipt of insurance funds, annuities, trusts, and legal settlements.)

2. Select ONE or TWO Adults (as head of household), then select the total number of dependent children (under 18) living in your household. Your tax free yearly spending allotment for necessities, and your monthly sales tax "prebate" will be automatically calculated from the HHS table based on your household adult/dependent numbers only. Your income is not considered.   Adult children (18 yrs and older) and other Adult dependents within your household will receive their own Adult prebate check.   
See HHS Chart for monthly prebate details.

Monthly prebate = $0

HHS Tax Free Spending Allowance is: $0

3. List total annual amount paid out for loan payments, including both principal and interest. (include existing mortgage, auto, education loan payments and all other loan payments.)

4. List all annual cash tuition payments made for education for any age, any level, preschool through adult. Tuition ONLY is tax free.
5. List the annual amount of all funds deposited to any savings account or retirement account through a government plan, through your employer, or privately, and all funds used to purchase any stocks, bonds, business, or investment vehicle of any kind.

7. List the estimated annual amount of all taxes paid to any State, County, City, Municipal, Township, and other local governments.

IMPORTANT FICA KEYNOTE - The FairTax eliminates FICA Social Security taxes (7.65%) and funds Social Security and Medicare as part of the 23% inclusive sales tax revenues. When comparing your FairTax rates above to your current income tax rates, or any estimated Flat Tax rates, remember to add your 7.65% FICA payroll taxes to your Income Tax expenses before comparing your tax rates. The proposed Flat Tax of 17% will not affect your current FICA payroll deductions, so the current Flat Tax proposal would really be a 17% + 7.65% FICA = 24.65% initial rate before deductions, clearly higher than FairTax's 23%. Be sure to check your paycheck stubs to see exactly what dollar amount you are paying for FICA social security and medicare through payroll tax deductions. Remember, your employer is also paying 7.65% into FICA on your behalf, money that he/she cannot give you in the form of higher wages. The FairTax eliminates both of these taxes.

Remember your tax numbers can change up or down depending on your own
personal spending / savings / investment/ gifting choices.

The key is YOU decide, not the government.
