An Inconvenient Tax


on Oct 24, 2012

Exploring the history of income tax and bringing to light the causes of its many complexities, the film follows the tax through wars, economic booms, and the most significant presidencies in U.S. history. This whirlwind tour includes everything from early IRS propaganda films to the tax reform campaigns of Ronald Reagan, whom historian Steven Weisman describes as “the poet laureate of capitalism.” (Dir. Christopher Marshall)
