The ins and outs of federal tax policy



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?  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 who’s paying and not paying federal income taxes. He’ll also explain what’s behind the 47% of low income Americans who pay little or no taxes – many of those families pay state income taxes or sales taxes – and why he predicts this number dropping in the next decade.
