Our taxes at work, and who pays them


Our taxes support essential social programs like Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, as well as infrastructure, education, national defense and the environment. Tax credits help alleviate the tax burden from a regressive system that takes more from poor people than rich. Several measures in the state legislature aim to address this imbalance, and generate more revenue for the state.
