The Tax Code and Income Inequality – Audio Available at No Charge

On April 27, 2016, the Tax Section cosponsored “The Tax Code and Income Inequality: Limitations and Political Opportunities,” a free webinar presented by the Section of Civil Rights on Social Justice. The program explored how “welfare” is delivered through the Tax Code (e.g., the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit) whether it is really working for low- and middle- income Americans, much less those in poverty, and how changes to the Tax Code can address income inequality in the U.S. Speakers included: Dean Baker, Economist and Co-Director of the Center for Economic and Policy Research; Francine Lipman, William S. Boyd Professor of Law, University of Nevada, Las Vegas; Alexandra Thornton, Sr. Director of Tax Policy, Center for American Progress; and Marilyn Harbur, Sr. Asst. Attorney General, Oregon Department of Justice (Moderator). ATT readers are invited to listen to the free audio here or below.
