Tax Foundation Welcomes New Staff
June 20, 2008
Mark Robyn first came to the Tax Foundation in September 2007 as an intern. During his internship he helped with the development of certain areas of the Tax Foundation’s federal income tax computer simulation, including the AMT, the earned income tax credit, and the child tax credit. He also helped gather data for the most recent publication of the “Facts and Figures” state rankings booklet. Mark’s outstanding work during his internship earned him a permanent position as a Tax Foundation analyst and programmer. He holds a B.S. in applied mathematics from Geneva College.
Josh Barro recently joined the Tax Foundation as a staff economist. His focus is state and local tax policy, including the annual State Business Tax Climate Index, and analysis of current state legislative proposals. Prior to joining the Foundation, Josh worked for Wells Fargo Bank’s New York office in a variety of commercial real estate finance capacities. Previously, he interned for various political campaigns and (as a 2003 Koch Summer Fellow) at Americans for Tax Reform. Raised outside Boston, Massachusetts, Josh holds a Bachelor of Arts degree from Harvard College.
“I am very excited to be joining the Tax Foundation” said Josh. “I look forward to continuing the Foundation’s 71-year legacy of promoting sound tax policy at all levels of government.”
