The papers document Wadsworth W. Mount's long interest in the value-added tax (VAT). The bulk of the papers consist of correspondence regarding the VAT and articles he wrote about it: "New Taxes for Old," "Who Pays the Piper Should Call the Tune," and "A Re-examination of Taxation Fundamentals." Mount compiled a large amount of correspondence and documentation concerning tax policy in binders over a period of 45 years, which he entitled "Reform by Typewriter."
