The Wisconsin Taxpayers Alliance is a private, nonpartisan, nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization, established in 1932 and based on the premise that representative self-government works best when citizens understand the workings of their government.

The media is an important partner in WISTAX efforts to help the public achieve broader understanding of government and the impact of public policies, especially those related to taxes and government spending.

Thanks to the generosity of donors, WISTAX distributes some 30,000 publications and press releases annually to more than 300 news media outlets across the state. Reporters contact our researchers daily for interviews and information.

The professional WISTAX research staff is an invaluable resource for journalists facing a 24/7 news cycle with less time to plow through government budgets, documents and bureaucracy to find the facts.

Our research staff appears regularly on radio and television broadcasts for media outlets across the state.
