    Most contemporary Americans know little about how their tax system works. In this book the authors, both tax scholars, offer explanations of how our tax system works, how it affects people and businesses, and how it might be improved. Organized in a question-and-answer format, the book describes the intricacies of the modern tax system. The authors begin with the basic definitions of taxes and then delve into more complicated and contentious concerns. They discuss key issues such as the large number of social programs hidden in the tax code, how taxes affect the economy, how the burdens of taxation are distributed, and the costs of running the tax code on both the IRS and taxpayers. They also dive into the political process, the genesis of ill-advised tax ideas, and options to improve the tax system. This book describes modern tax realities, and educates Americans about the issues in the debate about tax reform.
