The Internal Revenue Service will allow the use of tax microdata by qualified researchers who don’t work for the U.S. government. The agency issued a Call for Proposals application (due Dec. 31, 2016) for its Joint Statistical Research Program. The IRS puts out its own research, such as the Statistics of Income bulletin, and some academic groups and think tanks also work with IRS data.
