Subsidy Scope - US Federal Subsidies Data

Subsidyscope provides data related to US Federal government subsidies and their role in the economy. In particular, their Tax Expenditure Database provides comprehensive information on "tax expenditures" -- the lowering of the taxes certain parties pay the federal government by allowing special tax exemptions, deductions or credits.


Tax Expenditure database contains more than 10 years of material. There appears to be no way to get all the data at once so the resources section just contains links for latest years.
