Author(s):Pasma, Chandra
Subject:Social assistance - general|split|Social issues - social planning, policy|split|Social services - funding
Place of Publication:Ottawa
Date of Publication:2011
Abstract:

CPJ’s public justice framework supports the notion that taxes are an important contribution to the common good. Taxes are one way in which we as citizens fulfill our obligation to promote justice and to respect the right of all people to live in dignity. For governments, tax policy can be used to foster justice, in addition to tax revenues paying for infrastructure and public services that benefit all and promote an equitable society. Public justice also supports a progressive distribution of taxes, and transparent and accountable decisions from governments on taxation and spending.
