The Tax Foundation is the nation's leading independent tax policy research organization. Since 1937, our principled research, insightful analysis, and engaged experts have informed smarter tax policy at the federal, state, and local levels.
The organization's founders envisioned a world where the tax code doesn't stand in the way of success. Tax reform isn't just about growing the economy or raising revenue; it's about making people better off. That's why we're so passionate about our mission to lead the tax reform debate toward the principles of sound tax policy: simplicity, neutrality, transparency, and stability.
Our research and outreach highlight our tax code's strengths and weaknesses, and show how tax policy impacts taxpayers, the government, and the economy at large. We use our research to foster competition and advise policymakers on how to improve their tax systems.
