Tax Policy Analysis

Government decisions to tax, spend or regulate can mean millions of dollars to an organization’s “bottom line.” Responding to challenges and opportunities arising from government action often can be as important as responding to competitors in the marketplace.

Led by Drew Lyon, former Deputy Assistant Secretary for Tax Analysis with the Department of Treasury, the NES tax policy group analyzes the economic and budgetary consequences of tax policies for our clients as well as the impact of private sector decisions on the economy.

The tax policy group's analysis has brought added value to many companies in a diverse group of industries. By providing tailored reports of our results for non-technical audiences and explaining the methodology and validity of our analyses, NES supplies companies with critical information that may be used to influence policy, formulate strategic decisions, and communicate credibly with government decision-makers, investors, and consumers.

Tax policy analysis includes:
  • Revenue estimates
  • Budget estimates
  • Economic impact studies of legislative and regulatory proposals
  • Economic footprint studies showing employment, value-added, and tax payment by country, state, county, or congressional district
  • Distributional analysis of proposals by income, class, and region
