Understanding Taxes

Understanding Taxes uses dramatizations to highlight teenagers' firsthand experiences with the effects of taxation and to explain the reasons for taxes.

The program was a co-prodution of the Agency for Instructional Technology and the Internal Revenue Service. The original was produced in 1984, a revised version was made in 1987, and the program was completely re-made in 1993 to reflect changes to the tax code. 

The gallery contains full episodes from the program as well as production outtakes.
