Topic Individual Taxation

Individual income taxes and payroll taxes account for the majority of federal revenues. They raise revenues that pay for U.S. 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 individual tax policy on the well-being of families across the income distribution.
