The voices of Tax Policy Center's researchers and staff
Tax policy isn't just for economists, lawyers, or policymakers. Taxes affect us all and The Tax Hound engages the rest of us in interesting conversations about what government taxes, and why. On the first Wednesday of every month, I uncover the links between taxes and our everyday lives. How do they affect the way we pay for K-12 education, or what drinks we buy for our kids? Join in the conversation—we’d love to hear from you.
