What's Taxing About Taxes?

Who pays? Who chooses? What’s fair?

April 15th generally brings a scramble for U.S. taxpayers! But who exactly is paying? How much? What’s “fair?”

A group of students ponder these questions after stumbling across a tax protest. Now instead of just accepting slogans at face value, they’re digging deeper, interviewing experts for a school project. Who is the 1%? When did income taxes start in the U.S.? What amount of taxation, and of whom, is “fair?”

What’s the difference between a progressive tax and a flat tax?

Take the mystery out of April 15th.
