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.
We hope you and your loved ones are safe and healthy during these trying times. We understand that not everyone is in a position to give, but your support right now means more than ever.
The whole Tax Foundation team is working remotely and overtime to ensure that taxpayers like yourself have the information necessary to understand the economic impact of COVID-19, and that the legislation enacted to address it is based on facts, not fear.
The Tax Foundation has stayed true to its founding principles for over 80 years, and that remains true throughout the pandemic. After all, we were “born in crisis,” during the Great Depression. Then, during World War II, we fought to make sure every taxpayer dollar went to the war effort. We played a similar role in the aftermath of 9/11 and the financial crisis of 2008.
Today, the nation faces a different kind of crisis, but our mission remains the same. Our resources are helping millions of Americans understand what COVID-19 means for them. Our analysis is assisting legislators at every level of government to craft economic policies that help the most people possible.
Since March, here are just a few of the important projects we’ve launched to educate the public:
If you find these resources useful, we ask that you help us get them in the hands of more taxpayers, legislators, and journalists.
Every dollar counts during these critical times, so please consider making a gift of any size. We will put your gift to work immediately.
Thank you for considering supporting our work. We hope you stay healthy and wish you the very best in these uncertain times.
