Description –

CBO’s Tax Analysis Division is seeking an Assistant Analyst. The division’s responsibilities include producing CBO’s 10-year “baseline” revenue estimates, analyzing tax data, developing economic and statistical forecasting models, responding to Congressional requests, estimating the revenue effects of some legislation, preparing Congressional testimony, and writing research reports about tax policy.  
The analyst will be directly responsible for developing baseline estimates of certain revenue sources, for estimating the revenue effects of selected legislative proposals, for tracking revenue bills through the legislative process, for maintaining CBO’s federal revenue databases, and for providing support to other members of the division. The analyst will also have extensive interactions with others in various legislative and executive branch agencies.
