It only seemed appropriate with April 15th almost upon us to highlight a video I stumbled upon, Taxation Nation, which is part of a larger set of 20 short films titled We The Economy.   In Taxation Nation, a five minute animated video (think Schoolhouse Rock), students learn about the history of the income tax, what it pays for and its myriad problems (complexity, loopholes, enforcement).  For those looking to use this video as part of a broader lesson on taxation, there is a companion guide available too.
