The National Taxpayers Union is the nation's largest and oldest taxpayer-advocacy group. It was founded to work for economic freedom, smaller government, and lower taxes, at all levels. NTU lobbies on behalf of taxpayers at the local, federal, and state level. It was a major player in signature taxpayer victories of the past five decades. It fights to ensure that all Americans are able to pursue their dreams without the heavy hand of the government holding them back.
