Taxes and budgets
The way we raise and spend money affects everyone and everything, from the life prospects of the youngest children to quality of life for older adults. Urban researchers analyze tax policy changes to see who pays more, who pays less, and how revenues shift. We also examine how social policy is implemented through tax systems, document the impacts of fiscal choices, and evaluate state and local fiscal challenges. Policymakers at all levels rely on Urban for guidance on how to create fairer, simpler, and more effective tax systems that advance shared economic growth.
