The faces of tax fairness

As tax day approaches, Wealth for the Common Good wants to encourage political leaders and the voting public to take a closer look at our tax code. The effective tax rate paid by the wealthiest Americans, as compared to the effective tax rate paid by middle-income Americans is out of balance. We’re advocating for a set of reforms that would bring greater equity to the tax code.

This tax season, we’re producing a video to help convey this message, and we need your help. We are looking for high-income taxpayers who are willing to submit a quote and picture to include in our video.

Here’s what we are looking for:

1) 1-2 sentence statement about why you think progressive tax reform is fair.

2) A picture of you: this could be a head shot, an action shot, or even an image with you holding up a “picket sign” of your quote.

3) Your effective tax rate (optional). To figure this out – divide the dollar amount you paid in taxes by your Adjusted Gross Income for that same year.

Please email these materials to Alison at alison@wealthforcommongood.org by March 15th, indicating that you give Wealth for the Common Good permission to use them for promotional materials.

Thanks for your help putting a face on tax fairness!
