Founded in 1926, the California Taxpayers Association is the state's largest and oldest organization representing taxpayers. Established as a nonpartisan, non-profit research and advocacy association, CalTax has a dual mission to guard against unnecessary taxation and to promote government efficiency.
CalTax conducts research and advocacy on significant tax and spending issues in the legislative, executive, and judicial branches of government. CalTax is involved in a variety of activities that impact California taxpayers, including legislative advocacy, regulatory and legal developments, research, media outreach and public education.
CalTax focuses on legislative, tax agency, and local government tax policy deliberations, and we work with CalTax members and industry representatives to combat proposed changes that would increase the cost of doing business in California, while also supporting any changes that would have a positive impact on California taxpayers.
