Nominations for Outstanding Achievement in State Tax Reform Award

December 02, 2016

Each year, the Tax Foundation honors state legislators, executives, and other individuals with its Outstanding Achievement in State Tax Reform award. As the name suggests, the honoree's accomplishments must be (1) outstanding, (2) an achievement (not merely a proposal) during 2016, and (3) reform taxes to make them more simple, more neutral, more transparent, more stable, and more pro-growth.

Working for better tax policy is not easy, and although a small glass award hardly compares to the efforts the recipients put into what they helped achieve, we believe that it’s important to do something to recognize their impressive achievements for the taxpayers of their states. 

Past recipients in 20152014, and 2013 include four governors, legislators from eight states, the Presidents of the Nevada Taxpayers Association and the Rhode Island Public Expenditure Council, vigilant Utah tax officials who uncovered nationwide tax filing fraud, and a taxpayer activist in Ohio.

We thank you for your nominations using the form below, which will be accepted until 5:00 PM Eastern Time, Monday, December 12, 2016.
