Tax Analysts – Why Work For Us?

Tax Analysts recently named a new CEO, Cara Griffith. Her unique combination of legal and editorial experience, along with great management acumen, can help do great things for Tax Analysts. Cara started at Tax Analysts as a reporter. She worked her way up to a legal editor, then management, and finally, occupied a seat on the organization's leadership team. She has demonstrated insight on the needs and future direction of Tax Analysts and has been a strong voice in developing and monitoring execution of the Tax Analysts strategic plan.

We offer a casual work environment — pet friendly and relaxed dress code — where talented individuals come together to produce great work. Our staff enjoys free covered parking, free coffee and tea, an exercise room onsite with showers, and a working environment that embraces team collaboration and innovation. At Tax Analysts you have the opportunity to pursue a fulfilling career and still have time for what's important to you personally, such as as family, travel, or giving back to the community.

Five Reasons to Join the Tax Analysts Team:

Tax Analysts was established to defend the public interest in a policy arena full of private influence.

Initially, the organization pursued its mission through a diverse program of research, lobbying, litigation, and publishing. By the end of its first decade, however, Tax Analysts had become the nation's leading provider of unbiased tax information, with its publication serving as a forum for evenhanded debate of contentious policy issues.

In 1972, Tax Analysts first sued the IRS for public access to private letter rulings and technical advice memoranda - crucial documents that provided legal advice to specific taxpayers and IRS field agents.

Since then, we have used the Freedom of Information Act to force the IRS and state revenue departments to share with the public information about tax assessments and exemptions given in private decisions.

Today, Tax Analysts is the only independent, nonpartisan policy organization dedicated to tax systems through an open, informed, and expert understanding of federal, state, and international tax policy.

Tax Analysts is committed to discovering, disseminating, and debating ideas and information free from ideological agendas and special-interest lobbying.

We care about our community! A group of our employees have volunteered to form the Tax Analysts' Charitable Giving Committee. We strive to give back to those in need, our veterans, and even our 4-legged friends. Our dedicated committee works hard to coordinate efforts and our wonderful staff shows their support through donations of all kinds. 

Check out some of the wonderful programs we have partnered with!

Gifting for Families 2016 -- Northern Virginia Family Services

As part of the 2016 Tax Analysts' Holiday Party, we partnered with NVFS to help families who are in need of a helping hand this holiday season. Our generous staff brought gifts to the party and we even had a team member who won a 43" television as part of our raffle give-a-way donate his prize to NVFS -- we are so lucky to have a caring staff to support our caring culture.

    I worked at Tax Analysts full-time (More than a year)


    Friendly people, low-stress atmosphere, dog friendly (my dog was a frequent visitor), opportunity to interact with some of the top names in the tax world, interesting work if you like tax (and who doesn't love tax?), free cupcakes once a month, free parking, and daily walks.


    It's a small organization, so advancement can be limited, but most people find their niche and settle in.
