Evaluating Tax Incentives: Using Evidence to Inform Policy

webinar graphic

NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk. They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

Most webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to attend the live meeting.

Even in states that have conducted thorough tax incentive evaluations, lawmakers often lack opportunities to review the evidence generated or make timely use of it in budget and policy deliberations. View this NCSL webinar to learn about strategies that ensure policymakers have access to and consider the results of evaluations when making decisions about economic development tax incentives. Legislators from two states share their experiences in reviewing tax expenditures and experts from The Pew Charitable Trusts will present their research on how states have sought to link evaluations to legislative actions.
