Thanks for the Coffee Break!
March 30, 2012
Here at the Tax Foundation, we work hard to bring you the best in tax news and analysis at the federal, state, and local levels. This blog is an important element of that, and as part of our outreach and fundraising efforts, we’ve tagged our posts with the humble suggestion “If you found this blog post interesting, buy this blogger a cup of coffee ($5.00 donation).”
We’ve been very excited at the reponse from readers, who have been generously sending in their $5 donations since we started the campaign. After the first few responses, though, we started getting questions along the lines of “Are the bloggers really getting their coffee, or is this just some kind of gimmick?”
Pictured bloggers, left to right: Nick Kasprak, Mark Robyn, Alex Raut, Scott Hodge, Joseph Henchman, Laura Lieberman, Kevin Duncan, Will McBride, Scott Drenkard, Jordan King.
In response to those valid concerns, we hereby present our loyal readers and contributors with visual evidence that our bloggers do, if fact, end up getting treated to coffee. Thanks also to our friends at Starbucks, the preferred coffee provider of Tax Policy Blog contributors.
