Data for the Win: Advocating for Equitable State and Local Tax Policy
Join the Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy (ITEP) on Wednesday, Jan. 30, at 3 p.m. ET, for a discussion on how ITEP’s distributional data can be part of an advocacy and communications strategy for securing state tax policies that raise enough revenue to fund various priorities. Webinar participants will receive a brief overview of findings from the sixth edition of Who Pays? A Distributional Analysis of the Tax Systems in All 50 States as well as insight from state advocates who use Who Pays? and other tax policy analyses research to pursue their legislative agendas.

Every budget and tax debate should be informed by who pays taxes and how much. Forty-five out of 50 states capture a greater share of income from their lowest-income residents than the top 1 percent. And every state fails the test of true progressivity. This webinar will highlight how to use Who Pays? data to steer your state’s tax and budget policy debate and provide valuable tools for you to advance progressive tax policy discussion in your state.
