The mission of the Tax Foundation is to educate taxpayers about sound tax policy and the size of the tax burden borne by Americans at all levels of government. From its founding in 1937, the Tax Foundation has been grounded in the belief that the dissemination of basic information about government finance is the foundation of sound policy in a free society.

They want to be described by journalists only as "a nonpartisan tax research group based in Washington, D.C." according to their website. The Foundation doubts the existence of Global Warming and is dedicated to fighting any sort of carbon tax.
