Chief of Tax Foundation to Take New Role at Think Tank

Here is more from Bloomberg Tax:

Scott Hodge, the longtime president and CEO of the Tax Foundation, is stepping down to take a new role at the Washington, D.C.-based think tank, the group said Monday.

Hodge has served in the top job for 22 years, growing the nonprofit from a six-person shop to an organization with nearly three dozen tax policy professionals. He has spearheaded initiatives such the taxes and growth dynamic tax modeling program and the state business tax climate index, the foundation said.

Hodge will transition to a new position as president emeritus and senior policy adviser. The Tax Foundation has launched a search for a new president and CEO and has posted information about the role on its website.

The Tax Foundation, founded in 1937, has an annual operating budget of $6.3 million.  In 2020, Mr. Hodge made $347,300 for running the think tank.
