I am forced to take exception to that remark. I freely admit that I am a professional tax preparer. However, I have no fear of losing my job with the FairTax. Frankly, I could probably get a different job with minimal problems, or simply start a different business.

====================================

If you think having a fair tax is going to threaten your job guess again.

Before the ink is even dry there would be exemptions for this or that.

Washington State only has a sales tax. It makes my bookkeeping much harder keeping track of the different types of sales subject to or exempt from the tax.

After looking at the BOE-401-A2 it doesn't look as if it's much different in CA.

Shudder.
