Summary:
In the United States, it is quite common to lay claim to the benefits of society by appealing to 'taxpayer citizenship' - the idea that, as taxpayers, we deserve access to certain social services like a public education. Tracing the genealogy of this concept, Camille Walsh shows how tax policy and taxpayer identity were built on the foundations of white supremacy.
