What is Tech4Recovery not trying to do?

  • We do not believe we’re the top experts on tax laws and tax schemes.
  • We do not believe we are the best or wisest speakers on the lived experience of inequity.
  • We do believe we can help raise awareness of the scale of tech-fueled wealth and the possibilities for using it to accelerate recovery.

What is Tech4Recovery’s position on taxing tech companies?

We adhere to a simple principle: during the downturn, the tech sector will provide a steady flow of income and wealth to individuals and households. If affluent individuals and households are taxed in a progressive way, the only people affected alongside tech workers will also by those who, for whatever reason, are also doing well financially through the downturn. There’s a fierce urgency to do this to make recovery for all faster, fairer, and more just. We do not have nor plan to take a position on proposals not directed at individuals and households.
