Why Should African CSO engage in Tax Justice?

A speech at the launch of Nigerian Tax Justice Platform, Abuja, 14th August 2012

Dr. Dereje Alemayehu

Chair, Tax Justice Network – Africa

The following quotation from Christian Aid’s rationale for Christian Aid when it decided to engage in global tax justice advocacy and campaign is a good summary

“The neglect of tax as a development issue has gone on for far too long. …For Christian Aid, in particular, this is an area where the moral impetus demands a position – to address the poverty and inequality that the donors’ tax consensus will not, and to stress the moral principle that it is right that those most financially able to do so, bear the proportionately larger responsibility to contribute, through tax, to building a world without poverty”. click the link to read: Why Should African CSO engage in Tax Justice

    I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing
    issues with your site. It appears as if some of the text in your content are running
    off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback
    and let me know if this is happening to them
    too? This may be a issue with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously. Many thanks

      Of course, any state that does not have an incmoe tax is not going to tax your pension. In addition, there are states that tax wages but no pensions, such as Pennsylvania, and states that do not tax certain pensions, such as your federal pension.Louisiana, for example, has an incmoe tax, taxes pensions, but waives state incmoe tax on certain pensions, including your federal pension. There are 10 states that do not tax federal pensions:AlabamaHawaiiIllinoisKansasLouisianaMassachusettsMichiganMississippiNew YorkPennsylvania
