Join the Fight for Sound Tax Policy
Did you know … For over 80 years the Tax Foundation has been working on behalf of the American taxpayer to improve lives through smarter tax policy.
Tax policy impacts us every day. From where we live, to the things we buy, and how we plan for our futures, the taxes we pay influence it all.
That is where the Tax Foundation makes a difference. We use concise proprietary data and expert research to achieve real results for real people. With our decades of experience, we work with elected officials, key decision-makers, and the media to ensure that our leaders and policy-makers are equipped with the knowledge that leads to pro-growth economic changes.
We stand on four key principles of sound tax policy:
The tax code should be easy for taxpayers to comply with. Your time is too valuable to be spent navigating impossible-to-understand regulations, and your money is too hard-earned to be spent on needing outside experts to file your taxes.
Government should not be picking winners and losers through the tax code. Your personal or business decisions should be made by you alone, not by the influence of bureaucrats.
Our tax code should clearly and plainly define what you must pay and when you must pay it. Hidden taxes and vague deadlines are simply unfair.
You deserve consistency and predictability in the tax code. Expiring provisions and fluctuating rates make planning for life’s key moments all the more difficult.
Here’s where you come in. As a nonprofit, we rely exclusively on the generosity of our donors to carry out our work. By supporting the Tax Foundation, you add your voice to the thousands of Americans who have already stood up to guarantee that the tax code should never stand in the way of success.
With your gift today, you join with the most effective tax policy group in the country.
