The Tax and Transfer Policy Institute (TTPI) was established in 2013 with a federal endowment and is supported by the Crawford School of Public Policy of The Australian National University.
The research of TTPI focuses on the empirical analysis and evaluation of tax and transfer policies. Responding to the need to adapt Australia’s tax and transfer system to meet contemporary challenges, TTPI delivers policy-relevant research and seeks to inform public knowledge and debate on tax and transfers in Australia and internationally.
Evidence-based tax and transfer policy research
- We carry out research to support evidence-based tax and transfer policy for public benefit in the short, medium and long term
- We learn from and communicate the research to policymakers on real-life policy concerns
- We inform, enhance and influence public knowledge and debate on tax and transfer reform
- We develop and support the academic base for tax and transfer research in Australia in relevant disciplines for the future
Commitment to partnerships and knowledge sharing
To achieve our mission, TTPI is committed to working with governments, academics, business and the community. This includes partnering and sharing knowledge with:
- Australian Federal, state and local governments to deliver the best evidence to support policymakers on taxes and transfers including intergovernmental fiscal challenges
- National and international academic centres and scholars specialising in taxes and transfers to undertake and support excellent research that provides new knowledge and relevant policy initiatives on tax and transfers
- Community, business and labour representatives and sectors, to learn of real-life challenges and to provide research support to best practice tax and transfer reform
- The Australian public and media to inform and enhance public debate on tax and transfer reform.
