Topic Business Taxation

Business taxes are among the most progressive taxes in the U.S. tax system. They raise revenues that pay for government services and do so in a progressive fashion, reducing inequality. Equitable Growth aims to foster a robust discussion of the impact of changes in business tax policy on the well-being of families across the income distribution.
