2017 Tax Foundation of Hawaii Annual Luncheon

Hawaii's Tax System: Tweak It or Trash It?

Join us at the Tax Foundation of Hawaii’s Annual Luncheon on Tuesday, September 5, 2017 at The Plaza Club at 12:00 PM (11:30 AM Registration).

The Tax Foundation of Hawaii is pleased to be able to present a wide-ranging policy discussion on one topic that is certain to affect us all – taxes.

Our panelists are:

Keli’i Akina, President and CEO of the Grassroot Institute of Hawaii, a public policy think tank dedicated to the principles of individual liberty, free markets and limited, accountable government.





Gavin Thornton, Co-Executive Director of the Hawaii Appleseed Center for Law and Economic Justice, a non-profit organization that is working to build a Hawaii where everyone has genuine opportunities to achieve economic security and fulfill their potential. His work at Appleseed seeks to change systems that perpetuate inequality through research, policy development, education, coalition building, and advocacy.





Tom Yamachika, President of the Tax Foundation of Hawaii, a private, nonprofit educational organization dedicated to informing the taxpaying public about the finances of our state and local governments in Hawaii.





Our moderator is:

Daryl Huff, veteran reporter and now Managing Editor of Hawaii News Now, the news organization broadcasting on three Hawaii television stations, KGMB (CBS), KHNL (NBC), and KFVE (Independent).







Expected topics include:

• Is our current state tax system fair, and if not, what should be done about it?

• What’s the best way to fund Honolulu’s massive rail project?

• Is a surcharge on real property tax the answer to revitalizing Hawaii K-12 education?

• We’ll also take questions from the audience on topics that are important to you!
