'Eight Forty-Eight' looks at examples of tax rebellion, as the deadline to file approaches.

Apr. 18, 2011

As the deadline to file taxes approaches, Eight Forty-Eight looks at the history of tax rebellion in the United States and hears some of the difficulties same-sex couples have with the IRS. Then Steve Stevlic, coordinator of the Chicago Tea Party, talks to the show from Daley Plaza, where he’s setting up for the 2011 Chicago Tax Day Tea Party. And independent producer Melissa Townsend speaks with Doris Arrington about falling into writing later in life and how it’s changed her as a person.
