Taxes and Economic Growth

The Tax Foundation’s Taxes and Growth Model is a tax scoring model that evaluates the impact taxes have on the economy. The TAG Model estimates the impact tax changes have on wages, jobs, cost of capital, distribution of income, federal revenue, and the overall size of the economy. This information helps Members of Congress, journalists, and citizens better understand tax proposals.
