Campaign To Abolish the IRS Launched by Tax Group

About time


A group advocating for a flat sales tax is going up with a new nationwide ad buy urging members of Congress to abolish the IRS.

Americans for Fair Taxation, a group headed by wealthy super PAC donor Leo Linbeck III, will launch the ads Monday. The ad buy is in the mid-six-figures, according to the group.

"Our best chance ever to shutter the IRS is now," the ad concludes, urging people to visit the Web site and call an 800 number to join the effort.
