Your Eye on State Taxes
The Tax Foundation of Hawaii is your eye on state taxes. We educate and encourage the efficient and effective use of public funds (our tax dollars) to operate government and deliver public services. To do that, we track changes in tax law and how taxpayer dollars are used.
A Brief History
Efforts in Hawaii to form an organization similar to the Foundation reach back to 1929, the year of the infamous stock market crash that plunged America into the Great Depression.
Who We Are
We are a non-partisan, non-political 501(c)(3) organization whose mission is to educate taxpayers and lawmakers on taxation and public finance.
