About NTU

About the National Taxpayers Unionbuilding 

Since it was founded over 40 years ago, the National Taxpayers Union's Number One job has been helping to protect every single American's right to keep what they've earned. Our guiding principle has always been: "This is your money and the government should return it to you." We are a nonprofit, non-partisan citizen group whose members work every day for lower taxes and smaller government at all levels.

Let's face it--our U.S. Tax Code is a complicated mess, far too complex for average taxpayers to understand. We need sweeping tax reform designed to make this system both fair and comprehensible for the folks who actually pay those taxes. And real reform would also mean an end to the dreaded Internal Revenue Service.

By reforming taxes, we can transform American politics as well. There are hundreds of lobbyists and special interests running around Washington seeking tax breaks and exemptions. Tax reform would end the game of picking winners and losers under the tax laws and break the cycle of dependence between lobbyists and politicians.

We here at NTU promise to fight for these and other important pro-taxpayer causes, so as to ensure that all Americans are able to pursue their dreams without the hand of Big Government holding them back.

Our Mission

National Taxpayers Union (NTU) is America's independent, non-partisan advocate for overburdened taxpayers. NTU mobilizes elected officials and the general public on behalf of tax relief and reform, lower and less wasteful spending, individual liberty, and free enterprise. Founded in 1969, we work at all levels for the day when every taxpaying citizen's right to a limited government is among our nation's highest democratic principles.
