Burden or Relief? The Impact of Taxes on Hispanic Working Families: State of Hispanic America 1996

Research Report

This report represents one of the first efforts to document the burden taxes place on Hispanic families, analyze the fairness of individual taxes and tax systems, and identify the interests of the Latino community in tax policy and tax reform discussions.

In order to determine the tax burden for Hispanic families, NCLR estimated the tax liability for five different Hispanic families (separated by income level and demographic characteristics) located in California, Texas, and New York, the states which have the largest Hispanic populations.
