Maximize efficiency and plan for the future by analyzing the impact of key variables in various tax scenarios.
State policymakers regularly propose changes to tax laws to achieve policy objectives and examine their impact on household demographics and geographical areas, including cities, counties, and legislative districts. Implementing policy changes often results in disruptions to other strategic projects and initiatives, with timeframes ranging from days to weeks.
While the purpose of our tax system is to generate revenue, it also aims for fairness, efficiency, and enforceability, making it increasingly complex each year. Our solution, the RevHub Tax Policy Simulator, provides a tool to help plan for the future while maximizing efficiency in the present by delivering an analysis of the impact of key variables in each tax scenario, enabling users to create action plans and monitor progress over time.

How it works
The user enters parameters to define a new scenario for a legislative change into the Tax Policy Simulator. The simulator sends parameter changes to RevHub Tax Calculator and then combines real taxpayer data with parameter adjustments to calculate updated tax outcomes. Then, users can then report on tax incidence by taxpayer type, geography, industry, and revenue source.
The RevHub Tax Policy Simulator helps maximize efficiency and plan for the future by analyzing the impact of key variables in various tax scenarios, creating action plans, and monitoring progress over time to ensure effective decision-making.
