Taxes Around the World  

T.R. Reid, Award-winning Journalist
January 25, 2019 (Fri) 3:00 – 5:00 p.m.
Albuquerque Journal Auditorium
7777 Jefferson Blvd. NE

Do Americans pay more tax or less than citizens of other rich democracies? (Answer: far less). Could our tax system be fairer? Could it be simpler? (Answers: Yes, and Yes). Reid will take us on a world tour of tax systems and the efforts to reform them and will show how the design of a tax system can enhance rather than hobble economies. Doing our taxes will never be America’s favorite pastime, but Reid will give us useful ideas as we cope with the tax reform changes. +More Info
