TAX JUSTICE YOUTH CAMPAIGN
Tax Justice Youth Campaign is an awareness building campaign among the root level mass people to let them know about Taxation and why it is important for an individual. We campaign here in Bangladesh in 3 University and 4 local community level. That was a great experience. people of mass level don't know about taxation. So we provided them with a leaflet on taxation. We called several round table on taxation.
Students and youth participants were really very much enthusiastic about this. We trained up 40 participants to introduce them with the theoretical aspects.
Ensure corporate tax and reduce VAT on mass people.

We are working for the last three months on it. We hereby succeeded to build a group to talk on this issue.
We met with the chairman of the National Board of Revenue to let him know our demand and he told us that he will take a corrective action on this matter.
We introduced a thank giving card for those who paid their tax on winter tax fair.
We organized several flash mob and society as a class room.
Various national newspapers covered the news and we already earned a positive feedback from the community level.
Funding was the biggest challenge for us.
