TTARA is widely recognized as the premier tax policy group in Texas. For more than 50 years, TTARA and the TTARA Research Foundation have worked with Texas business and political leaders to encourage tax policies that are fair and equitable to all. TTARA staff and members closely follow Texas tax policies at both the legislative and executive levels. Every legislative proposal affecting the state's tax system is reviewed and measured against clearly stated tax principles, and improvements are advocated whenever necessary. TTARA continues its involvement with tax policies through the process of developing rules and regulations to administer taxes. No organization in Texas has had as great an impact on the development of tax policy in Texas as has TTARA.
