Fight Foreign VATs with an American VAT

January 08, 2019

Consumption taxes are "border adjustable taxes" allowed under WTO rules. They average 17% globally. This means that virtually all foreign countries tax our exports at 17% on top of tariffs. They subsidize domestic shipments abroad with a 17% tax rebate. US.S. does not have a consumption tax to offset this advantage.

    Simply help to educate members of congress and this includes the usage globally of the Value Added Tax system. Hopefully at least some of them don’t remain as one of the three monkeys of seeing no evil, hearing no evil and speaking no evil. This could also justify a tariff tax, especially on certain key industries.

    The oligarchs will never allow a VAT to be even considered. (Have you every seem them even discussed in the MSM?) It would mean offshore tax havens and other accounting gimmicks that entities as diverse as Google and GE use to avoid taxes would not work anymore. The best to hope for is a general increase in tariffs.

    The flyer is a good one. I recommend after clicking the VIEW THE FLYER link. Downloading this flyer. Then after printing it out with your computer printer. Bring at least one copy to the office of your local Congressional Representative and hand it to the staff member. This could be done all over the U.S. nation to every US Congressional office in cities in every US state.

    One of the additional taxes that is being ignored in the U.S. is when U.S. goods are exported to other nations they are also charged with a Value Added Tax (V.A.T.). This tax system also has different names depending on the country. This is a tax on the amount by which the value of a product has been increased at each stage of its production or distribution. The V.A.T. tax system is used by the majority of other nations. It has similarities to our sales tax system. However, our sales tax system is only applied and taxed within individual U.S. states and not taxed on goods received outside of individual states and also not taxed on foreign imported goods. In contrast other nations that use a V.A.T. tax system or a tax system with a different name, such as China, Japan, Mexico, Canada and European Nations apply these taxes uniform through their nation and also on imported goods.

    When foreign nations like China charge V.A.T. taxes to their companies, if the goods are later exported, for example to the U.S., the company can get a full V.A.T. tax refund from their government.

    This if from an article that I wrote. https://www.tppbadforus.info/index.php/u-s-constitution
