The History of (Not) Paying Your Taxes

Audio of my conversation with Professor Michael J. Graetz

Here in the States, Monday is Tax Day. I haven’t filed mine yet, partly because if you wait till the last minute, it only takes a minute, and also because I recently spoke with Michael J. Graetz about the history of Americans paying their taxes. 

In The Power to Destroy: How the Antitax Movement Hijacked America, and in conversation, Professor Graetz traces the rise of the antitax movement to 1978, when a “perfect storm” led to a tax revolt still unfolding today. Professor Graetz is a professor emeritus of law at Columbia and Yale law schools.
