Tax Foundation University 2023

Whether you are a seasoned tax professional or just learning the basics, the Tax Foundation University course offers valuable knowledge on the individual and business federal tax code and how taxpayers respond to the code. The course is designed for congressional staff, focusing on tax provisions often targeted for reform and explaining current tax issues before Congress with an eye towards their economic implications.

The Tax Foundation is hosting a two-hour session with our experts to cover the essentials of the tax code and how to analyze tax policy like a Tax Foundation economist. At the end of the session, you will understand the structure of the federal tax code, current tax issues for Congress, and the impact of new and changing tax laws like the provisions in the Inflation Reduction Act and Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. Further, you will learn how our experts analyze tax policy and explain its impacts on workers, small businesses, and America’s largest job creators. To finish, we will overview new features of our macroeconomic model that democratize tax analysis.

The 2023 Tax Foundation University session is on Friday, April 21st from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. in room 2020 of the Rayburn House Office Building. If you are interested in attending Tax Foundation University, please sign up below.
