The Most Interesting Convo Ever on Taxes: What We Pay, Why We Pay, or Do We Pay at All?

  • Schlafly Bottleworks 7260 Southwest Avenue Maplewood, MO, 63143 United States (map)

Just in time for tax season, the April Theology at the Bottleworks topic will be, “The Most Interesting Convo Ever on Taxes: What We Pay, Why We Pay, or Do We Pay at All?“ Taxes of multiple kinds are part of life in America. They are often attempts to implement policy objectives by creating economic incentives and disincentives (such as the many tax advantages of marriage). They’re considered as inevitable as death. Yet taxes deemed unjust were a contributing factor to the Revolutionary War (the Boston Tea Party), and the amount of taxes we pay seems to rise perpetually. Just what taxes do we pay and should we pay? Are taxes a valuable part of being in a community? Do you or should you pay taxes at all? Are our taxes just? We’ll explore taxation in America from philosophical, sociological, economic, spiritual and cultural perspectives, so come have a brew, share your view, and lend an ear to others'.
