Revenue Estimating Methods
During our Taxpayer Bill of Rights Hearing in December, the tax practitioner community asked for an overview to our revenue estimating methods. Our Economic and Statistical Research Bureau created a webpage, Franchise Tax Board Revenue Estimating Methods, on how we construct revenue estimates, use our estimation tools, and model taxpayer responses to change in tax law. We believe that providing objective estimates of the revenue impacts of tax policy proposals enables policymakers to make sound tax policy decisions.
