Tax Equity: Paying Fair

Update:  Thanks to every­one who made it out to this excit­ing event.  If you weren’t able to attend, you can watch it here on C-SPAN.

Last month’s panel made the case for wise pub­lic invest­ment. But what’s the best way to fund that invest­ment? The ADA Edu­ca­tion Fund’s Con­gres­sional brief­ing series con­tin­ues in April with a “sum­mit” round­table of lead­ing advo­cates for a fairer tax system.

When: Wednes­day, April 11, 2012 – Noon to 1:30 PM
Where: Capi­tol Vis­i­tors Cen­ter, Room SVC 201–00

The April panel will focus on inequities in the tax code and how to make the sys­tem fairer.  Top­ics will include the lower rate on invest­ment income vs. earned income; the mis­char­ac­ter­i­za­tion of high-end salaries as invest­ment income; off­shore tax avoid­ance schemes; cor­po­rate tax loop­holes; and the income cap on Social Secu­rity contributions.
