Why Tax Work? Tax and Conversation civics meeting
Collective Agency Downtown

“By simplifying income tax laws for people to have more equal lives, everyone will be more comfortable, able to live more humanly.”

Our weekly Tuesday civics meetings are a structured Q&A, hosted at Collective Agency, open to the public to ask questions and share-and-learn perspectives about this membership organization and about tax in Oregon overall, and the real effects of the real numbers on people’s lives.

Many people don’t understand anything about tax in society, including myself four months ago before I started learning. Many people do. We’ll learn together. The end result will be an amendment to the Oregon constitution.

"Anthropology of emotions and the economy": Tax and Conversation weekly meetings
Collective Agency Downtown

If you could choose to live in a world where you'd feel more of an emotion, which would you choose? Happiness? Fear? Excitement? Contentment? Comfort? Something else?

When you think about income tax, what do you feel? What do you think? What would you prefer? What questions do you have about emotions and the economy? We'll talk in a structured Q&A, share perspectives, and learn a lot.

Open to the public and members of Tax and Conversation. RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/424700254246488 Agenda: https://taxandconversation.com/2012/11/01/tues-nov-6th-6pm-anthropology-of-emotions-and-the-economy/

"Cultural myths around income tax": Tax and Conversation weekly civics meetings
Collective Agency Downtown

There are some cultural myths around income tax. We'll talk through frequent questions, and see whether the fact-based answers are relevant. We'll start by choosing the 3-5 most relevant questions to us in view of a constitutional amendment for Oregon in 2014 on income tax reform.

Some questions include: "Why government?" "What about rich people?" "Doesn't the tax law need to be nuanced to incentivize people to work?" "Is this income tax reform political?" "How do we know we can we trust the tax reform to be good for everyone in Oregon?" (These are all real questions I've been asked which touch on core issues where the answer is not obvious.)

What would you like to learn? What are you concerned or excited about? Areas for questions will include tax, membership, and/or this organization (at least one of each).

Agenda 6-7pm Tues Nov 13: 1. Intro who we are, what we're working on. 2. Choose three or five questions, talk through, share perspectives, learn. 3. Review what did we like, what can be better next time.

RSVP: https://www.facebook.com/events/366214123469511/
