Since 1937, the Tax Foundation has been leading the way towards pro-growth tax reform. In 1939, we received our first business donation and, since then, we’ve taken pride in the support of the business community, which, like many taxpayers, is often negatively affected by poor tax policy.

Support Our Business Tax Research

We encourage you to support our research on the impact of tax reform on the business community and the economy at large.

We’re always welcoming new companies to join our Federal Advisory Panel and State Tax Working Group and offer the opportunity to support specific projects, like our cutting-edge Taxes and Growth Model, year-long working groups and initiatives, and chart book and reform book programs that aid states in developing tax proposals.

We’re also always looking for sponsors for our Annual Dinner, affectionately known as “Tax Prom,” the only time those interested in tax policy across the spectrum can gather at one event to share ideas and make new connections.

If you’d like to learn more about our programs, initiatives, and other opportunities to support smart, pro-growth tax policy, fill out the form at the link below.

Global Tax Reform Program

Our Global Tax Reform Program is working to change the tax narrative by advocating economically sound, data-driven tax policies that foster, rather than discourage, investment, competitiveness, and entrepreneurship.

Federal Advisory Panel and State Tax Working Group

Through our Federal Advisory Panel and State Tax Working Group programs, we offer the opportunity for our supporters to meet regularly with Tax Foundation leadership and key state and federal decision makers to learn more about the tax issues facing the business community. Advisory Panel and Working Group meetings are collaborative working environments where you have the opportunity to:

  • Connect with key legislative members and staff
  • Stay informed on important state and federal tax developments
  • Share your tax policy questions and concerns
  • Help identify ways to positively influence the tax reform debate towards the principles of sound tax policy

Note: During the COVID-19 pandemic, these meetings will be held remotely, via Zoom. Any changes to this format will be communicated to members when restrictions are lifted.

Conformity Working Group

The Tax Foundation’s Conformity Working Group brings together leaders from the policy and business communities to educate state legislators and taxpayers about the state economic impacts of federal tax reform.

Gross Receipts Tax Working Group

The Tax Foundation’s Gross Receipts Tax Working Group brings together leaders from the tax policy and business communities to inform legislators and voters about the economic dangers of gross receipts taxes.

Excise Tax Research Program

Through the Tax Foundation’s Excise Tax Research Program, we’ll work with various industries to produce research and analysis that shows policymakers that excise taxes are economically inefficient, difficult to administer, and place a huge burden on both consumers and retailers.

State Partners Forum

Through the Tax Foundation’s State Partners Forum, we provide a unique setting where Tax Foundation experts, business leaders, trade associations, and decision-makers can connect with one another.

Taxes and Growth (TAG) Program

The Taxes and Growth (TAG) Program is designed for tax professionals to learn more about how changes to the federal tax code will impact jobs, GDP, wages and ultimately federal revenues.

Our TAG Program provides professionals the opportunity to work closely with Tax Foundation economists to help better understand the tradeoffs and decisions lawmakers and staff must make to achieve tax reform.
