Taxes in America : What Everyone Needs to Know (R), Paperback / softback Book


Despite their passion and fury, contemporary Americans are remarkably clueless about how their tax system works.

But with heated debates over taxation now roiling Congress and the nation, an understanding of the American tax system is of vital importance.

Taxes in America, by preeminent tax scholars Leonard E.

Burman and Joel Slemrod, offers a clear, concise explanation of how the American tax system works, how it affects people and businesses, and how itmight be improved.

Accessibly written and organized in a clear, question-and-answer format, the book describes the intricacies of the modern tax system in an easy-to-grasp manner.

Burman and Slemrod begin with the basic definitions of taxes and then delve into more complicated and indeed contentious concerns. They address such questions as how to recognize Fool's Gold tax reform plans.

How much more tax could the IRS collect with better enforcement?

How do tax burdens vary around the world? Why do corporations pay so little tax, even though they earn trillions of dollars every year? And what kind of tax system is most conducive to economic growth?
