Americans For Fair Taxation was formed in 1995 as a 501 (c)(4) nonprofit, nonpartisan, grassroots organization solely dedicated to replacing the current tax system. It began as a research organization with the initial goal of finding out what the American people wanted in a tax system, what they felt was the best way for the government to collect revenue, and how taxation could be achieved in a way that most benefited the economy and the taxpayers. Many diverse groups of Americans participated in the extensive polling and focus group studies, and then a nonpartisan team of economists was commissioned to develop the FairTax plan. The organization today has hundreds of thousands of members and volunteers nationwide. Its plan supports sound economic research, education of citizens and community leaders, and grassroots mobilization efforts.
We believe in a system in which taxes are simpler, flatter, more visible, and lower than they are today. The government's power to control one's life derives from its power to tax. We believe that power should be minimized.
The National Tax Limitation Committee (NTLC) has been at work since 1975. We are one of the longest standing and strategically oriented pro-taxpayer/entrepreneur organizations in America. NTLC grew out of work which Founder and President Lew Uhler did for then-Governor Ronald Reagan to constitutionally limit the growth of taxes and spending year over year in order to control the size of government (Proposition 1, California, 1973). In late summer of 1978, believing that the time had arrived to begin work at the federal level, we reconvened many members of the Proposition 1 task force, including Milton Friedman, Bill Niskanen, Craig Stubblebine, and others. The federal spending amendment emerged. After months of careful deliberation, the Tax Limitation/Balanced Budget Amendment was fashioned. Our goal continues, as we incorporate Tax Payer support to effect state and federal spending limits.
Since it was founded over 35 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. That's why it is so vitally important for us to continue our pursuit of institutional change in government. Paramount among these reforms is scrapping the U.S. Tax Code for a better alternative. And it's time once again to consider adding a Balanced Budget Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, to keep Congress from spending beyond our means. Also, a Tax Limitation Amendment would prevent our elected representatives from raising our taxes so that they can raise their spending. Let's face it--our U.S. Tax Code is a complicated mess, far too complex for

The Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Foundation (HJTF) is the research, education and legal arm of the Jarvis organization. HJTF advances the interests of taxpayers in the courtroom. Given the high cost of litigation, an ordinary taxpayer is rarely in a position to challenge the validity of an illegal tax levy. In appropriate cases, HJTF provides legal representation without cost to other taxpayer advocacy organizations, homeowners and individual taxpayers where the precedence established confers a broad public benefit to other citizens.
