Why Donate to the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance?
WISTAX is Wisconsin's only statewide, nonpartisan, independent watchdog.
WISTAX is a nonpartisan, nonprofit public policy research organization working on behalf of Wisconsin taxpayers and citizens. Since its founding in 1932, the Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance has been the source that Wisconsin taxpayers, business leaders and the media look to for the truth about state and local government in Wisconsin.
WISTAX receives no government funding. It is privately supported by donations from individuals, businesses, foundations, and organizations throughout Wisconsin.
WISTAX cuts through political rhetoric to give you the facts.
Wisconsin taxpayers and voters want and deserve the simple truth about state and local government - how it works, taxes and spends. But, the information about government provided by politicians and special interest groups is often incomplete or slanted, designed to promote a particular point of view. In many cases, voters are left frustrated, wondering what version of "the truth" to believe.
Through painstaking research, WISTAX uncovers the truth and provides citizens the honest facts about government, taxes and spending. In this era of career politicians, political "spin doctors" and media "filtering," WISTAX is Wisconsin's only source of independent analysis on state and local government finance.
Armed with WISTAX facts, taxpayers can hold government accountable.
As a taxpayer, you have a right to expect your elected and appointed officials to spend your tax dollars wisely. You have a right to be assured that taxing and spending programs actually achieve their goals. You have a right to expect responsive, responsible government.
But good government is only possible when citizens have the information needed to hold officials accountable. Through research, publications, public outreach and our unrivaled credibility with the media, WISTAX makes that happen in Wisconsin.
Supporting WISTAX is an investment in good government.
To continue our vital work on behalf of Wisconsin taxpayers, we need the support of concerned citizens like you.
Donations to WISTAX, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization, are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
