The ins and outs of federal tax policy
April 15, 2013
GUEST: ROBERTON WILLIAMS
It’s Tax Day. Have you filed your taxes yet for 2012? Are you claiming the right tax credits for education, a child and child care?Â ROBERTON WILLIAMS, Tax analyst and Sol Price Fellow at the non-partisan Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center will help us take apart our complicated and convoluted 74,000 page tax code and help us understand whoâ€™s paying and not paying federal income taxes. Heâ€™ll also explain whatâ€™s behind the 47% of low income Americans who pay little or no taxes â€“ many of those families pay state income taxes or sales taxes – and why he predicts this number dropping in the next decade.
