The Joint Committee on Taxation (the "JCT") has openings for staff economists. The JCT is a nonpartisan professional staff, comprised of lawyers, economists, certified public accountants, and computer specialists, that provides Congress with unbiased analysis of tax legislation. The staff of the JCT works closely with the House Committee on Ways and Means and the Senate Committee on Finance and is involved in every aspect of the tax legislative process. For more information on JCT's work, see

The JCT is seeking to expand its staff in the following areas:

Economists to analyze: (1) both large and small data sets to formulate estimates of the Federal budget impact of proposed Federal tax legislation; and (2) the possible economic and administrative implications of proposed changes in Federal tax laws (strong quantitative skills valuable).

These are exciting and challenging positions for economists who have an interest in tax policy. Your work will be reflected immediately in tax legislation considered by the Congress. You will work in a team environment with other staff analyzing tax legislation, and you will have the opportunity to conduct independent research.
