Description

This two week series looks at the overwhelming state and federal taxes that Connecticut residents pay everyday. The report explores the number of different taxes which families struggle to pay each month, including sales taxes, income taxes, gasoline and fuel taxes, hidden utility taxes, and the misleading Social Security Trust Fund, which is not a trust fund at all. The articles explain that the trust fund is actually deposited directly into the federal Treasury. Reporters also looked into how Connecticut families fared compared to other states.
