Our Purpose

Make the Federal tax system fair for everyone who pays their taxes

      • Most people pay their taxes
      • Some people don’t
      • That’s not fair

The Problem

$574 Billion PER YEAR in unpaid taxes

      • A minority of taxpayers fail to pay what they legally owe. This unpaid amount – the Tax Gap – is more than all the income tax paid by 90% of individual taxpayers.
      • Most of the Tax Gap is from high income taxpayers not paying what they owe.
      • This is unfair to every compliant taxpayer.
      • Before we raise taxes on those already paying what they owe, we should collect from those who are not paying.

The Solution

A practical plan to shrink the Tax Gap

  •    Our plan raises $1.4 trillion over 10 years without raising taxes on any compliant taxpayer.
    This is almost as much as President-Elect Biden’s tax plan would raise from increasing individual income and social security taxes.

    Our plan includes three practical steps:
            • Use Modern technology to improve service and identify unreported income
            • Ensure all income is reported to the IRS
            • Provide IRS resources to collect what we know is owed.

It’s only fair – before raising taxes, we should collect the taxes already on the books.

Look Who Agrees

Leaders from across the political spectrum and business community support this plan.
