Help us achieve a world where the tax code doesn't stand in the way of success.
The Tax Foundation is the nation’s leading independent tax policy nonprofit. Since 1937, our principled research, insightful analysis, and engaged experts have informed smarter tax policy at the federal, state, and global levels. For over 80 years, our goal has remained the same: to improve lives through tax policies that lead to greater economic growth and opportunity.
2018 brought us a new year and a new federal tax code. After 31 years since the last major tax overhaul, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act comprehensively reformed the federal tax system, which, in turn, impacts state tax codes.
Now, the focus on tax reform shifts from Washington, D.C., to all fifty states, raising the question: How will states conform to the new federal tax code?
The Tax Foundation’s Conformity Working Group provides an intimate setting for business and tax policy leaders to strategize about the best ways to engage in this debate and ensure a smooth transition in the states.
The Tax Foundation is the only Washington-based organization with the expertise and the credibility with state lawmakers, the business community, and free-market think tanks to help states navigate the complex issue of tax conformity.
We engaged in more than 35 states last year, interacting with key stakeholders who are responsible for deciding tax policy.
In 2019, we’re relaunching our large-scale campaign to educate state legislators on how and why they should conform to the federal tax code, while capitalizing on the opportunities federal reform can bring to make state tax codes more competitive.
In order for this effort to be successful, we need your help.
