Tax Policy Center

The Tax Policy Center (TPC), officially the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center,[2][3][4] is a nonpartisan[5] think tank based in Washington D.C.[6] A joint venture of the Urban Institute and the Brookings Institution, it aims to provide independent analyses of current and longer-term tax issues, and to communicate its analyses to the public and to policymakers. TPC combines national specialists in tax, expenditure, budget policy, and microsimulation modeling to concentrate on five overarching areas of tax policy: fair, simple and efficient taxation, social policy in the tax code, business tax reform, long-term implications of tax and budget choices, and state tax issues.
