B555 Tax Policy

Description Throughout the twentieth century, and now into the twenty-first, taxation has been, and continues to be, critical to the structures of wealth and opportunity in the United States. The aim of this course is to explore the fundamental social, economic and political forces that drive tax policy. Building on the concepts developed in the introductory tax class, this course will combine a socio-legal and historical perspective on taxation with a more conventional political and economic analysis of public finance issues. We will explore such salient topics as the ideal tax base, the tax legislative process, progressivity, and the impact of tax policies on race and gender issues. Successful completion of Introduction to Income Tax is the only prerequisite for this course. (2 cr.)

Note This course may offer writing credit.
