The voices of Tax Policy Center's researchers and staff
As you might have noticed, the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center website just had a makeover. It’s the beginning of a process that will make our careful nonpartisan analysis more engaging and easier to find and use.
First, we have designed a new logo and have given TaxVox a new look. And you will begin to notice TPC using more data visualization, interactive features, graphics, and multimedia to display insights from our research. Our goal is to make our data and analysis more accessible to our broad audience, including policymakers, journalists, academics, amateur wonks, and ordinary taxpayers.
But there’s more. We know that finding information on the TPC website can be as hard as filling out Form 6251 by hand. That will change soon. By mid-year, we plan to launch a brand new TPC website that will be more modern, visually engaging, better organized and easier for regulars and newbies to search for information. Our goal is to make our research, analysis, and numbers more accessible through interactives, easy-to-read tables, and data visualization.
While our visual identity will change, our goal remains: We believe our tax system should be simple, fair, and efficient. Here at TPC we want to describe the impact of tax policy to the broadest possible audience.
Our improving digital technologies will help amplify our research just as Congress resumes its debate over tax reform and the nation begins to gear up for the 2016 presidential elections.
