If there is one thing that all Americans can agree on, it is that our current system of taxation is way too complicated. At Paladini Law, we see the results of this every day, as we represent people involved in tax controversies with the IRS. We know that there has to be a better way. Learn more about tax reform scholarship.
Over the years, the American tax system has grown increasingly complex. To kick off our first annual scholarship competition, we are asking you to come up with an idea of how to reform it. Your plan should either:
- Make the process of taxation easier; or
- Reduce taxes for working Americans without compromising our national budget.
The most creative idea for tax reform will win a $1,000 scholarship to the college or university of their choice!
Tell us your tax reform plan in brief narrative form, explaining how your idea would make the process of taxation easier or reduce taxes for working Americans without affecting our national budget. Please provide your entry in 1,000 to 2,000 words in an essay or Prezi/Powerpoint presentation. Both graphic and creative presentations are welcome.
Paladini Law will award the scholarship to the applicant who demonstrates the most creative tax reform plan that either (1) makes the process simpler or (2) reduces taxes for working Americans without impacting the national budget.
