Tax and Regulatory Policy
Small tax policy changes can mean big changes in the amount individuals or businesses owe in taxes. AEG uses decades of knowledge and expertise in the economy and state and local finances to estimate the consequences of tax policy and regulation. We go the extra mile by estimating not just what the direct impact will be on those who are regulated or those who pay the tax, but how the tax changes will be reflected in price changes and consumer and business behavior.
AEG analysis allows trade associations, businesses, and individuals to understand what policies affect them most and to use the credible information we provide in the political arena. And we work with governments to help them understand the consequences of their policies and implement best practices.
