October is economic education month. An important part of economic education is understanding how taxes affect the economy. On this special episode of The Deduction, we discuss how TaxA tax is a mandatory payment or charge collected by local, state, and national governments from individuals or businesses to cover the costs of general government services, goods, and activities. Foundation is doing just that through our tax literacy initiative, “TaxEDU.”
Zoe Callaway, Manager of Education and Outreach, joins Kyle Hulehan to chat about why Tax Foundation launched TaxEDU and how TaxEDU is advancing tax policy education, discussion, and understanding in classrooms, living rooms, and government chambers.
