What is Stop Taxing Us?

payer advocacy group based in North San Diego county. We are a true grass roots organization that works to unite

How did you decide on the name Stop Taxing Us?
The organization was named
after a “battle cry” when a group of citizens decided to fight a local bond
measure in Southern California in 2008.
California, with its reputation to quickly turn to new taxes for social
programs, caused the community to shout "STOP TAXING US" in unity. Together we defeated this bond which
would have created over $1 billion in new taxes for the residents of three
small cities……the name stuck.
Does Stop Taxing Us believe there should be no taxation?
No, taxation is a necessary component of the social compact of any functional society. We do however believe that government should be limited to the basic principles set forth by the United States Constitution. In this regard we believe that government has become too intrusive in our individual lives. The best way to shrink government is the limit its revenue source (tax dollars).
How can I get involved with Stop Taxing Us?
There are several ways to
interact with this organization.
First, we recognize that the average person only has a few spare hours
in any given week. Therefore, we
strive to make maximal use of the internet to keep you informed. We accomplish this via the use of our
Website, our monthly e-Newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, and Meetup.
Can I get involved “in person”?
Yes, Stop Taxing Us hosts a monthly social, and once a year we host a large, multi-coalition Tax Day Tea Party. This annual event typically draws thousands of people. In addition to our socials, and large events, you can also join us on visits to the offices of local legislators. Finally, Stop Taxing Us volunteers are actively involved in editorial submissions, and radio and television appearances. Your personal involvement is only limited by your imagination.
