Um, excuse me, you guys? I have DONE THE MATH. You see, the purchase of an existing home is exempt from FairTax. Therefore, the entire principal paid by that homeowner is exempt from FairTax. (The homeowner DOES pay some FairTax on his mortgage interest, but the renter always pays far more FairTax on equivalent housing in the long run, as the homeowner locks in P&I while rents usually just keep going up and up.) The renter pays FairTax on his entire rent, which of course generally increases substantially over time. Note also that the homeowner’s property taxes are exempt from FairTax, so only the renter is taxed on this cost component. (The numbers I generated are based on annual operating cost and rent increases of 2 percent per year – not an unrealistic long-term estimate, if anything this might be on the low side.) The renter even pays FairTax on the property taxes – higher on rental prop than on equivalent owner-occ prop in many states – embedded in the rent he pays. Click http://link.mx/hool081945
