Compounding Taxes: Impacts of Disability & Intersectionality

Date & Time
Friday, March 22, 2024 - 10:20 AM PDT  
Platinum 1  

You’ve likely heard of the “disability tax” and “pink tax.” In research for the U.S. Internal Revenue Service (IRS) our team explored compounding taxes — encountering multiple barriers and experiencing increased impact. According to the Center for Intersectional Justice, intersectional identity characteristics may “intersect to create unique dynamics and effects” and may compound barriers to accessing services and impact outcomes.

The IRS Office of Online Services (OLS) Inclusive Design Strategy aims to build design capabilities and research practices which include and value the voices and needs of historically under-researched underserved taxpayer groups. This research enabled the IRS to deliver services aligned with a variety of identified taxpayer needs.
