The structure of DC’s tax system—who pays and how much—raises issues that are important to all of us.

The taxes paid by DC residents and businesses support vital public services that make DC an attractive place to live and work. From schools to housing to parks to public transportation, these are critical to a robust economy and strong communities. DCFPI works to promote a tax system that is adequate to meet our city’s needs and fair in distributing taxes among residents and businesses.
