It's the most wonderful time of the year! Yes, it's income tax season, and Dewey's here to help with any and all research related to income tax policy, so keep reading and don't forget to file your taxes by April 15!
Some areas related to income tax policy that you might want to keep your eye on are cybercrime and identity theft, as the IRS is working on protections against identity thieves who use stolen personnel data to file fraudulent returns. Or perhaps you're more concerned with the possibility of cuts in IRS funding under the Trump Administration. Either way, refer to our research tips below on where to find various reports.
A great database to utilize is Intelliconnect, which opens up with a feature on "Today's Federal & State Tax News Highlights." In the sidebar under all content you can limit your search to Federal Tax, State Tax, and more and then by subtopics within each area. You can also find Income Tax reports via the Gov't Accountability Office Reports on Income Taxes and CRS (do a keyword search on "income").
Help is available! Contact Cathy Dwyer, Subject Librarian for Public Policy, at (518) 442-3699 or firstname.lastname@example.org - or drop by during Cathy's office hours, held weekly on Mondays from 4-7pm.
