The taxpayers' movement has grown out of the desire of citizens to protect themselves from the increasing tax claims of governments.
The Taxpayers Association of Europe is a federation of 29 national taxpayers associations throughout Europe with more than one million members.
It works towards a society with lower taxes and more individual freedom.
It wishes to stimulate efficiency and economy in the public sector.
It supports legislation to limit tax burdens, prevent unjust harrassment by tax collectors, and provide clear information about government taxation and expenditure.
