Tax Analyses

ITEP staff uses the ITEP Microsimulation model to produce quantitative analyses of current and proposed federal tax policies, creating distributional analyses (or the effect on taxpayers according to their income group), producing revenue estimates (how much a tax policy would affect annual federal revenue collection), and even breaking down the impact of federal policies on each of the 50 states and the District of Columbia. We also provide qualitative analyses and commentary on the overall fairness of tax proposals with a keen regard for the economic well-being of working people.
