About the National Taxpayers Union Foundation

Founded in 1973, National Taxpayers Union Foundation (NTUF) is a non-partisan research and educational organization dedicated to showing Americans how taxes, government spending, and regulations affect them. 

Through difference-making data, analysis, and commentary, we empower citizens to engage in the critical policy debates of our time – and hold elected officials accountable. 

NTUF projects like our State of the Union budget analysis, Presidential travel study, candidate agenda analyses, and unique and renowned BillTally project, lead the way in revealing what government costs taxpayers.   

BillTally, NTUF's signature project, was started in 1991 to reveal the legislative spending agendas of Members of Congress by analyzing the costs and savings of nearly every bill that they sponsor and cosponsor. 

BillTally provides the public, and media, with the only comprehensive look at how individual Members of Congress want to spend your tax dollars. 

Each week, NTUF's e-newsletter, The Taxpayer’s Tab, highlights our latest research and brings you up-to-the-minute updates on the week’s notable bills. 

When Americans need quick and objective data to better understand the fiscal priorities of elected officials and government bureaucrats, NTUF is there.
