The IFS was established in 1969 with the principal aim of better informing public debate on economics in order to promote the development of effective fiscal policy.

Its research remit covers subjects from personal tax and benefits to education policy, from labour supply to corporate taxation.

The IFS receives funding from a range of sources, including the Economic and Social Research Council, UK Government departments, the European Research Council, foundations, international organisations, companies and other non-profit organisations.
