Group to hear about tax legislation

Fort Wayne resident Dave Armstrong, assistant state director of FairTax Indiana, will give a presentation on fair-tax proposals Monday at a meeting of Fort Wayne 9-12.

Armstrong said he will he give “an overview of all the tax schemes being discussed today and a full explanation of the fair tax.”

Fair-tax legislation introduced in Congress would impose a 23 percent national sales tax on goods and services; repeal income, employment and estate and gift taxes; and abolish the Internal Revenue Service.

Co-sponsors include Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., and Reps. Marlin Stutzman, R-3rd; Dan Burton, R-5th; and Mike Pence, R-6th.

Fort Wayne 9-12 will meet at 6:30 p.m. Monday at The Classic Café, 4832 Hillegas Road. The event is free and open to the public. For information, go to www.fortwayne912.com.

The 9-12 Project was founded by conservative broadcasting commentator Glenn Beck. According to its website, its principles include believing in God, marriage and family, hard work, blind justice and that “America Is Good.”
