Federal Taxes

The Tax Foundation's Center for Federal Tax Policy produces and promotes timely and high-quality data, research, and analysis on federal tax issues that influences the debate toward economically principled policies. Our experts are routinely relied upon for presentations, testimony, and media appearances on individual and corporate tax issues, and our website is a comprehensive resource for taxpayers, journalists, lawmakers and their staff.

Taxes and Growth Project:

Our Taxes and Growth Project sets out to evaluate the effect of taxes on the economy. We do this by using our Taxes and Growth model to estimate the impact of tax changes on investment, wages, jobs, federal revenue, and the overall size of the economy. 

The Taxes and Growth Fellowship Program is our training program for young, talented economists. Through our three-month and one-year fellowships, we provide new economists with the educational instruction and hands on experience they need to understand, operate, and build macroeconomic models.
