On April 15, advocates from across the nation will march on Washington, D.C. and in more than 90 cities to demand transparency in government and fairness in our tax code.
By participating in the Tax March in Washington, D.C. or in your community, advocates can send a bold message to President Trump and Congress: everyone must pay their fair share, Mr. Trump must release his tax returns, and we need a tax system that promotes economic fairness, including a just housing policy.
The Tax March takes place just as Congress and the administration turn their attention to comprehensive tax reform. It is up to us to demand a fair tax system that works for everyone, especially those with the lowest incomes.
NLIHC and the United for Homes (UFH) campaign have become an official partner of the Tax March, along with a growing list of advocacy groups – including MoveOn.Org, Indivisible, Our Revolution, American Federation of Teachers, Credo, Americans for Tax Fairness, the Center for Popular Democracy Action, Working Families, the National Women’s Law Center, the Coalition for Human Needs, and many others.
The Tax March is a natural fit for NLIHC and the UFH campaign, which calls for modest reforms to the mortgage interest deduction (MID) – a $70 billion tax write-off that largely benefits high income households – to better serve low and moderate income homeowners and to reinvest the savings into providing affordable rental homes to people with the greatest needs.
