HAT Forum: Taxation

HAT Forum
Saturday, November 8, 11:00-1:00
519 Church St., Room #106 (Eastroom South)
Topic: Taxes
Proposed by: Dov Mileevsky


1) what is the optimal method of taxing the public: (a) income tax (b) consumption tax (c) property tax?

2) is it fair to penalize higher income individuals by taxing them at a higher percentage vs lower income people? 

3) what should the US government do regarding corporations who have generated billions of dollars offshore and now refuse to repatriate those funds back to the US and incur the tax penalty?

4) is it true that the general public cannot always be trusted to make financially sound decisions with government funds?

5) is it acceptable that religious institutions have special privileges regarding taxes? Should religious schools be allowed to offer a tax write off for tuition? Are charities in general abusing "tax write offs" in comparison to other types of institutions?
