Hometown U.S.A. - A Tax Education Excercise

Hometown is an exercise that helps students consider the problems and issues that arise in the developing a fair and equitable tax policy. While the case is not specific to federal tax law, it does allow a platform for teaching the ideas associated with optimal tax policy.  It also provides an excellent look at some of the issues associated with state and local taxation and allows students to consider the interaction between federal and state and local taxation that will affect their clients in the future.  There is no correct solution except the one generally agreed upon by Hometown participants. Feel free to participate in the experience by sending your own response or suggested solution to Hometown's dilemma.  Good luck in your endeavors and make sure Robert's Rules of Order are close by.
