Join the Fight for Sound Tax Policy
Yes! I would like to join the thousands of American taxpayers, small business owners, corporations and foundations that support Tax Foundation research. I know this research provides important educational analysis on sound tax policy which enables legislators, taxpayers and the courts to shape the best reform.
Governed by a Board of Directors, the Tax Foundation is an independent, nonpartisan 501(c)3 that relies on the private financial support of the general public—individuals, foundations, and businesses—for its income. The Tax Foundation does not accept government funds. The Tax Foundation does not employ registered lobbyists nor engage in lobbying activities.
