Center for Economic Analysis

The Tax Foundation’s Center for Economic Analysis takes a quantitative approach to analyzing federal tax policies and proposals using our Taxes and Growth (TAG) macroeconomic model.

Since 2015, the TAG model has been used to analyze dozens of legislative and campaign tax proposals, including every major tax plan put forth during the 2016 presidential campaigns, the House GOP’s 2016 Tax Reform Blueprint, and the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
