For four decades, ITEP has worked to advance progressive tax policy at the state and federal levels.
Our 2020 vision (and beyond) is a society that gives all of us equal opportunity to live up to our potential and in which we break down the systemic and structural inequalities that have denied or hindered opportunity based on race, gender and class. Achieving this vision, in part, demands a progressive tax system that raises enough revenue to make adequate public investment in education, health, infrastructure, the environment and other critical priorities.
Watch our story.
ITEP’s 40th anniversary coincides with a pivotal national moment of growing public discontent over income inequality, growing public support for higher taxes on the wealthy, and a crucial presidential election that will either cement a policy approach that favors lower taxes on corporations and the rich or reverse course and move policy ideas that will raise revenue and fund critical priorities. ITEP remains unwavering in its commitment to tax justice.
