Currently, the average American family pays $13,758 in federal income taxes.
This is enough money to buy a quality pre-owned car. This is enough money to pay tuition for one year at many in-state universities. This is enough money for a down-payment on a nice house.
In short, the amount of money the average American family pays in income taxes is enough money to substantially improve their quality of living.
Libertarians believe that Americans have the right to use their hard-earned money as they see fit. The Libertarian Party calls for a full refund for all Americans and complete abolishment of the income tax.
Libertarian Party Chair Nicholas Sarwark says, “Every dollar that the federal government takes from Americans every year is a dollar they can’t use to make a better life for themselves and their families. Instead, it is used by politicians to benefit their special interest cronies. The best thing the government could do is to stop stealing money from hard-working people and that’s why we are calling for a 100% tax refund to every American.”
