Mississippi Lawmakers Hear About Tax Fraud Dangers

Council leaders spent the day recently educating lawmakers at the Mississippi State Capitol about the problem of tax fraud. Council Representatives Emanuel Mitchell and Man Peavy teamed with Council Delegate Robert Barnes to speak with state representatives and senators from both parties.

“The political day of action gave us the chance to connect with these legislators and show them how tax fraud hurts the economy in many ways. We were encouraged at the interest displayed by those we spoke with,” Mitchell said.

Many thanks to these and other lawmakers who took the time to speak with us: (left to right) State Representative Kenneth Walker, State  Representative Doug McLeod, CSCRC’s Emanuel Mitchell and Man Peavy, State Representative Mark Tullos and CSCRC’s Robert Barnes.
