Thank you for your interest in this topic. The media often mistakenly refers to a VAT
as a “sales” tax. It’s a consumption tax. As a consumption tax, it is “border adjustable.” Border Adjustable means a tax on exports and a subsidy on imports. The US is the only developed nation without this kind of consumption tax, and it puts our domestic companies at a disadvantage in international trade. Please consider looking at our flyer on the subject:
We do advocate replacing other existing regressive taxes with the VAT
income. Consider paying our Social security costs with a VAT
(like Germany does). I hope you find this interesting. and feel free to ask further questions.
