Job Opportunities at the Tax Foundation

Recently, we’ve analyzed the tax plans of every presidential candidate, bringing their proposals to the national spotlight and ensure that that the politicians and media are informed and honest. At the state level, we use our research to foster competition between the states and advise policymakers on how to improve their tax systems. In 2015, our work was cited in 22,193 news articles in 4,304 different publications, including all 100 of the largest national outlets and the papers of record in all fifty states, and our website got a record 8.5 million views.
