The FRC’s technical assistance responsibilities include supporting the Georgia state fiscal economist, developing estimates for tax-related fiscal notes, writing the Georgia State Tax Expenditure Report, and conducting research on a variety of topics associated with Georgia state and local fiscal policy issues. The work of the FRC also includes collaborating with faculty, developing graduate student capacity, and maintaining the data resources and technical capacity to make the center an area of excellence in state and local tax and economic policy.
