Taxpayers Association

of Vigo County

History (1936 to present)

As a non-profit, the Taxpayers Association has been instrumental over the past 80+ years in keeping the public aware and informed about where tax dollars get spent and ensuring that tax dollars are spent wisely and for the common good. The Taxpayers Association is neither for, nor against taxes, but rather for ensuring that all tax monies collected are spent responsibly, transparently, and ensuring that spending of tax dollars in specific locations is justified.

 

Look at our publications page for our annual reports, giving you some details on overall budgets in the City of Terre Haute, Vigo County, and Vigo County School Corporation.

 

Membership is greatly encouraged and appreciated in order to keep our office running.
