our goal is to ensure that working people's voices are heard and influence the nation's tax policies.
For decades, far too many of our elected officials have put the wants of special interests, corporations and the very rich over the needs of the rest of us. Now, lawmakers seek to cut taxes for corporations and the rich while claiming such policies will benefit working people. Collectively, we can raise our voices to stop the brazen, upward redistribution of wealth.
Our current political and cultural environment
is marred by a toxic belief that
the country's economic order
is rigged against ordinary Americans
-- the world of high finance
unjustly supersedes their rights,
needs and wants.
We need to demonstrate a little more patriotism,
and a greater sense of fairness.
Even if it affects our pocketbooks.

1 in 6 taxpayers would see an immediate tax increase under this plan, which would cost the government $233 billion in 2018 alone.
Citizens for Tax Justice focuses on federal, state and local tax policies and their impact upon our nation. CTJ’s goal is to ensure tax fairness for middle- and low-income families. We work to achieve this goal by: distilling tax policy research so anyone who is interested can learn about what's at stake in the nation's tax policy debates; being a conduit for working people to collectively raise their voices and stand up to special interests, lobbyists and corporations; and using all advocacy tools available to ensure we ordinary people have a prominent voice in the development of our nation's tax laws.
We want to hear from you!
