ON-Lion Letter

In January, Tax Analysts' Tax Notes released its 2015 Person of the Year, which recognizes "an individual or organization that had the most influence on federal tax policy and practice."  This year, the Tax Foundation in Washington, D.C., was the only organization to be nominated for the respected award, and is recognized for its work on scoring the presidential candidates' tax plans, the second edition of the International Tax Competitiveness Index, and a new book on income taxes in America (Income Taxes Illustrated), as well as all the other work released by the foundation’s Center for Federal Tax Policy.

"Tax Notes' recognition of our work on federal tax policy caps off the most exciting year in Tax Foundation's 78 year history," Tax Foundation president Scott Hodge said.  "I cannot remember a time when so many candidates released such clear initiatives on any policy, let alone on taxes.  In 2015, nearly every major contender released explicit plans highlighting their views on tax policy, and we were the only group able to inform the public about the impact these plans would have on wages, jobs, and economic growth."

The Lynde and Harry Bradley Foundation in Milwaukee supports the Tax Foundation.
