TPC launches beta website

March 8, 2016

This post was originally published on TaxVox.

In a few weeks, the Urban-Brookings Tax Policy Center will launch our new website. Starting today, the site is running in  “beta,” and we invite you to give us your feedback.

Feedback

As you explore the new site, you will see a tab in the lower right-hand corner of every page. Use this tab to tell us what you think of the site or let us know about any errors or broken links. You’ll be able to use this tab through our beta period and perhaps for a few days after our official launch. 

Digital transformation

Our new website is designed to help us explain tax policy to the widest possible audience. We’ll use it to expand our use of infographics, calculators, short videos, and interactive games. By describing our research in more compelling ways, these tools will help us better engage with users. Here’s a brief rundown of some new features:

  • A home page that aggregates the latest and most relevant TPC posts and publications, with easy access to our Election 2016 site and the Briefing Book.
  • A simplified navigation bar to help you browse our trove of research and data. The names of content tabs may seem different, but don’t worry; all the same content is here. To help with the transition, here’s a list mapping content tabs on the old site to those on the new site:
  • A search tool that allows you to find content across the site by topic, author, or date.

We hope you will find our new site easier to use. We look forward to providing you with the best nonpartisan, relevant, and engaging tax policy research in this presidential election year and in the years to come.
