Tax Reform 2018
March 10, 2018 - Denver
Most everyone agrees that reforming the US Tax Code is a worthwhile endeavor. But the perennial debate has taken on renewed energy with Republican-controlled executive and legislative branches.
Join us for a journey into taxes 101, which will include federal, state and local taxes. What is a tax? What does the current tax code look like? What are the most compelling reasons for reform? And what are the proposed reforms and their implications? An economic way of thinking, including an analysis of incentives and unintended consequences, will enlighten the discussion. Regardless of whether you teach business or any of the social studies subjects, or just want to be the go-to person in the teachers’ lounge, you should be conversant on the topic of taxes. This class should really help you out.
