  • Inside Access: The Knowledge Deficit about Taxes

C.D. Howe Institute events are open to members and their guests. Members can register online by signing in here, or contacting cdhoweevents@cdhowe.org.

Policies that use the tax administrative apparatus as a delivery system cannot reach their full potential if citizens don’t understand how taxes work in general and how they are affected specifically. Join us for a briefing on some surprising trends in tax literacy, as well as the troubling effects of weak tax knowledge including decreased trust in the tax system, higher rates of tax evasion, and failure of social programs to reach their intended targets. 

Inside Access is an exclusive, members-only opportunity:

  • 30 minute briefing and Q&A on Institute papers
  • A quick and convenient way to understand why our research is relevant to you, your organization, and the broader economy
  • Free as a member benefit

To register for this call, please contact Allie Kehoe at akehoe@cdhowe.org or 416-800-0476.
