April Featured Library: Taxation & Economic Reform in America Parts I & II

Exploring HeinOnline, Taxation and Economic Reform in America
Shannon Furtak

April means springtime for many areas of the United States, the start of the regular baseball season, and the tax filing deadline for millions of Americans. The history of taxation in America began before the American Revolution, when colonists protested British taxation policies in the 1760s, and it continues to be a frequently discussed and controversial topic today.

HeinOnline's Taxation & Economic Reform in America Parts I & II (TERA) collection contains millions of pages and thousands of volumes of legislative history and other documents pertaining to taxation and the economy in the United States. The collection also contains extensive content pertaining to securities, banking, finance, and investment.
