The Prosperity Tax: An Idea for the 21st Century
February 5 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm$25.00
Now that a new year has arrived, so too has the agony of filing your personal income taxes. David Cay Johnston has spent a lifetime studying, investigating and explaining the intricacies of the U.S. tax system in terms we all can understand. In doing so, he has exposed outrageous tax dodges, cheaters and just how our political system has enabled the most wealthy among us to pay little or no taxes at all.
Reflecting on this lifetime of learning, Johnston has devised a new “Prosperity Tax” that would completely replace our illogical, unfair and extraordinarily complex federal tax system. In this talk moderated by WXXI Connections host Evan Dawson, he will explain this alternative system to us and answer your questions.
