The Tax Foundation is pleased to announce that Dr. Robert Carroll had joined its staff as Vice President for Economic Policy. Dr. Carroll will oversee the Tax Foundation’s tax research program, with a special focus on business taxation and the need for corporate tax reform.
“As someone who has often used and always respected the Tax Foundation’s work, I’m excited to now take part in that work,” said Dr. Carroll. “This position is a great fit for me, as I will be able to continue doing what I’ve always done: making the case for sound tax policy.”
Dr. Carroll most recently served as the Deputy Assistant Secretary for Tax Analysis in the Office of Tax Policy at the Department of the Treasury, a position he began in December of 2003.
Previously, he was a Visiting Scholar in the Tax Analysis Division of the Congressional Budget Office. From July 2002 to June 2003 he served as a Senior Economist (Public Finance) with the President’s Council of Economic Advisers.
He holds a Ph.D. and a master’s degree in economics from Syracuse University and a B.S. in economics from State University of New York.
“We’re delighted to have Bob on our team,” said Scott Hodge, president of the Tax Foundation. “His wealth of experience and keen intellect will make him an invaluable asset for our organization. I look forward to working with Bob in continuing our 70-year tradition of advocating sound tax policy at the state and federal level.”
