Connecticut Voices for Children today released a report entitled, “Steps To A Fairer Tax System: Proposals for Tax Reform, Transparency, and Timely Support,” which outlines a proposal for a fairer tax system that would put more money in the pockets of working- and middle-class families, especially families of color.

This report is accompanied by the typical Just Facts and Executive Summary, a document we pair with lengthy reports. Additionally, due to the density of the report, we’re including five Just Facts for each of the report’s sections.
