Yeah, i get what your saying and agree, but your example is not a good one. Contractor goes to home depot, buys crap, knows exactly how much that crap costs. There would be certain situations where issues like that would come up, but i still think it would be more simple than the current system. Paying workers in cash is a problem now, but it would not be under the fair tax. Regardless of how much the contractor paid his workers he charges the customer whatever final price he chooses and adds the tax to that. The service industry would create some situations where the rules would be unclear, but they are that way now.
