Over the last few months or so, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has been reportedly in trouble. The Inquisitr kept up with current news on the situation surrounding the government branch pertaining to Lois Lerner. This includes allegations of taxing Republican and Conservative companies and organizations more than the Democratic and Liberal ones.
Supposedly, missing emails would give a lot of insight on the situation, in which the IRS was granted 30 days to produce back in July. Eventually, Lerner would resign from her position, though she doesn’t like it when she’s targeted for what she is accused of.
Now the IRS has another monkey on its back as a new documentary not only states that the American people can “abolish the IRS,” but that a fair or flat tax can be implemented as well.
According to the people behind Unfair: Exposing the IRS, the documentary will hit theaters for one night only on October 14. It will explore the rampant abuses of the Internal Revenue Service. To get a feel of the documentary, the official trailer is attached below.
The Blaze followed up on the movie (which features a clip of Glenn Beck), in which they give more details of the film. First, the movie will be an hour and twenty minutes, and will not just hit the well-known story of the IRS targeting Conservative and Republican groups. In fact, more abuses will also be exposed. This includes highlighting a relatively unknown problem experienced by parents who adopt children from outside the country, harassment of groups like the American Legion, and certain religious organizations. This is all done in hopes of sparking a specific movement, one aimed at abolishing the IRS and replacing it with a fair tax.
Now, some readers may not know exactly what a fair tax is. Summarized, a fair tax is a proposal to reform the federal tax code, in which it would replace all federal income taxes, payroll taxes, gift taxes, and estate taxes with a single broad national consumption tax on retail sales. Of course, there are more details on the tax, but I provided a summarized explanation in general.
Now that you’ve read the report about the upcoming documentary, Unfair: Exposing the IRS, and what it aims to accomplish, what are your opinions? Do you think the IRS needs to be abolished and a fair tax needs to be established? Do you think we should leave the IRS alone? Would you rather we use another form of tax, such as the flat tax? Please let everyone know in the comments below.
