About The Tax Alliance
The Tax Alliance for Economic Mobility, co-chaired by CFED and PolicyLink, convenes racial justice advocates, asset-building advocates, tax reform experts, and researchers to identify near- and longer-term policy priorities to expand savings and investment opportunities for lower-income households through reform of the U.S. tax code. The Alliance includes a coalition of national organizations that have agreed on shared principles and are working to educate and engage their networks about why inclusive, progressive, and equitable tax reform is crucial to building the long-term security of families, communities, and the national economy.
The Steering Committee for the Tax Alliance is comprised of four member organizations in addition to the two co-chairs, including Center for American Progress, Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, United Way Worldwide, and NAACP. The Steering Committee coordinates overall strategic vision of the Tax Alliance, orchestrates quarterly full-body meetings, and provides political and policy guidance.
The Tax Alliance’s policy work is led by four specialized, volunteer-led working groups, each comprised of at least six organizational members in addition to the co-chairs. The working groups are:
- Higher Education and Children’s Savings
- Homeownership and Housing
- Retirement Security
- Tax Credits for Low-Income Households
