Tax Foundation

Taxes are a part of life, but they don’t need to be burdensome and complex, nor inhibit economic growth. An ideal tax code is one that follows the principles of sound tax policy: simplicity, neutrality, transparency, and stability. The Tax Foundation is devoted to educating taxpayers, the media, and policymakers. Our federal research and outreach highlight our tax code’s strengths and weaknesses and show how tax policy impacts taxpayers, the government, and the economy at large. At the state level, we use our research to foster competition between the states and advise policymakers on how to improve their tax systems. As a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of individuals, businesses, and philanthropic foundations who believe in a smarter, simpler tax code. If you believe that our federal, state, and local tax systems need to be improved, then we encourage you to join us!
