An Inconvenient Tax

We will be hosting 2 screenings of this brand new documentary, one on its release date, April 15th, and another as part of our Monday Movie series the following Monday, April 19th.

An Inconvenient Tax sheds light on one of America's messiest problems-a fundamentally broken tax code affecting every aspect of people's lives. The thousands of special tax preferences and the forms that go with them create confusion and distrust at every turn. This feature-length documentary film reveals the many ways Congress uses the tax code to achieve political and social goals having nothing to do with raising revenue. The film also tackles the controversial issue of tax reform through a non-partisan presentation of U.S. tax history and current proposals to fix the code. In a time when America faces fiscal crisis, An Inconvenient Tax brings a crucial exploration of the tax code to the big screen.

To help crack the code, the film uses the country's top economic experts, commentators, and political voices. For the first time ever, Americans can engage in the tax debate with confidence and perhaps discover a new way to tax. As Joseph Thorndike, one of the film's experts, says, "We face fiscal problems in this country right now that are so serious, we should all fear for the safety of our children down the road. Americans are going to have to deal with this topic of tax reform because it is just too important to ignore." (from inconvenienttax.com)
