About Us

Who we are.

The Tax Council Policy Institute (TCPI), which was created in 1997, is a non-profit and non-partisan public policy research and educational organization. TCPI was created to help bring about a better understanding of significant federal tax policies that impact businesses and the national economy through careful study, thoughtful evaluation and open discussion. TCPI is affiliated with The Tax Council, an association established in 1966 for senior level tax professionals who work together to promote sound federal tax policies and a better understanding of our federal tax system.

TCPI’s premier event is the Annual Tax Policy & Practice Symposium which is held each February in Washington, DC. For the past 18 years, these symposia have played a critical role in helping to shape the debate, define the issues, and shed light on important tax issues. The symposia are considered to be exceptionally effective because they bring together leading professionals from government, academia, and the private sector to intently focus on a specific, timely tax issue for two days of discussion and debate.

In addition to the Annual Symposium, TCPI sponsors mini-symposia which serve as follow-ups or enhancements to the two-day symposia.  Generally, government tax staff is invited to join private sector experts to discuss important and timely tax issues via webcast.

TCPI is affiliated with The Tax Council, an association comprised mainly of Fortune 500 companies, major trade associations and key accounting and law firms. The Tax Council has provided an ongoing forum on important tax policy issues for over 50 years in order to promote sound federal tax and fiscal policies and to bring about a better understanding of the tax system.
