In autumn 2007, RJ, together with the Swedish Tax Agency and the Research Council for Working Life and Social Science (FAS), began a new initiative in tax research. The response from candidates submitting applications was impressive. Five applications were approved in the spring of 2008 for three-year grants, with RJ contributing SEK 8 million, FAS SEK 5 million and the Swedish Tax Agency SEK 15 million.

These grants were included under the Sector Committee for Public Finances. A new round of grants was announced in 2010 and 2011, and seven projects received grants. In the second round, the Swedish Tax Agency contributed SEK 15 million, FAS SEK 7 million and RJ SEK 10 million.
