Our Work Speaks
For Itself

Since TUA’s founding, the taxpayer watchdog group has made an impact on tax policy in Illinois and across America.

  • [vc_column_text]In 1977, Tobin led the first successful property tax strike in modern Illinois history.[/vc_column_text]
  • [vc_column_text]In the past four decades, TUA has been victorious in defeating 423 tax-increase referenda, stopping 19 state income tax hikes, and defeating every attempt to enact a graduated state income tax in Illinois since 1992.[/vc_column_text]
  • [vc_column_text]TUA’s leadership and members were instrumental in repealing the Medicare Catastrophic Coverage Act of 1988, legislation that increased taxes on all senior citizens, which was the first time a major federal entitlement had ever been repealed.[/vc_column_text]
  • [vc_column_text]All combined, TUA has saved local, state, and federal taxpayers more than $200 billion of their hard-earned money since 1976.[/vc_column_text]
