Center for Federal Tax Policy

The Tax Foundation's Center for Federal Tax Policy produces timely and high-quality data, research, and analysis on federal tax issues that influences the debate toward economically principled policies.

The mission of our federal program is to promote tax and fiscal policy that leads to greater U.S. competitiveness, higher economic growth, and improved quality of life for all taxpayers.

We have a number of projects that help us educate taxpayers, journalists, and policymakers on tax policy at the federal level and how the U.S. tax system compares internationally.
