Tax Controversy Among the Low-Income Population

May 17, 1999


Senior Fellow Eugene Steuerle offers the expertise of American University Professor Janet Spragens, executive director of the American Tax Policy Institute. He shows that she made a strong case that more attention ought to be paid to the needs of low-income taxpayers. Indirectly, she points to significant costs arising from the failure of Congress, the Treasury, and the White House to be able to come together to make an effort toward tax simplification.
