Requesting Revenue Estimates

Procedures for Congressional Members requesting revenue estimates from the Joint Committee on Taxation are as follows:

Address requests to:

Thomas A. Barthold, Chief of Staff
Joint Committee on Taxation
502 Ford House Office Building
Washington, DC  20515

Request must be submitted on Member’s letterhead and signed by the Member.  Reference the subject and provide any supporting bills or documentation relating to the proposal for which the request is being submitted.  A proposal need not have been introduced as a bill but must include sufficient detail for a revenue estimate to be prepared.  Questions concerning whether proposals are sufficiently detailed should be directed to the Joint Committee’s main office at Extension 5-3621.

List the name and contact information (phone number and email address) of the person in the Member’s office handling the request.

At present, we are receiving requests by email only at: [email protected]

Requests may also be sent via interoffice mail, hand carried directly to Room 502 of the Ford House Office Building, or faxed to 5-0832 (please follow-up with “hard-copy” originals).

The following navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move through main tier links and expand / close menus in sub tiers. Up and Down arrows will open main tier menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.
