Title: Debunking Tax Myths & Facts
Date: Tuesday, November 14, 6:30-8:00PM EST
Who pays taxes? Who benefits from taxes? What is the difference between a progressive tax and a regressive tax? How can taxes help tackle inequality in the city? This interactive workshop will bring together community groups and organizations to share their insights and expertise on the links between taxes, investments in public services and the city budget. It will dispel myths related to Black, Indigenous, People of Colour (BIPOC), newcomers, people with disabilities and low-income communities and highlight their economic contributions to the city.
