About Us

You know how the government keeps taking more of your money and time?

 

Well, Iowans for Tax Relief (ITR) works for:

    • Lower taxes
    • Less government spending
    • Fewer regulations

So government will get out of your pocket and off your back.

The problem is big-spending politicians too often listen to the noisy special interests, which leaves you feeling frustrated, ignored, and ripped off. ITR believes the government should create a level playing field for everyone and not pick winners and losers.

Governor Kim Reynolds said:

"ITR has been fighting for Iowa taxpayers for over 40 years. I can't tell you how important that is. When ITR is at the Capitol, they are not working for just one business or industry. They represent ALL Iowa taxpayers."

Most lobbyists at the Capitol work to increase the amount of tax dollars given to their clients. ITR has lobbyists at the Capitol too, and they speak up for you, the taxpayer. However, because many elected officials are concerned about their reelection, active and engaged citizens are the most influential.

This is why ITR makes it easy for Iowans to have informed conversations with those who control state and local budgets. We do this by simplifying complex issues, providing relevant information, and giving you easy-to-use tools for contacting your elected officials.

If Iowans don't speak up, the government can continue to wreck your household budget and make you comply with unnecessary regulations.

As the voice of the taxpayer, ITR's efforts have led to many taxpayer victories in recent years:

    • Cut the top individual income tax rate from 8.98% to 6.5%
    • Reduced the number of tax brackets from nine to four
    • Cut the top corporate income tax rate from 12% to 9.8%
    • Modernized the sales tax code to provide a level playing field between online businesses and brick and mortar businesses
    • Eliminated Iowa's inheritance tax
    • Increased property tax transparency for cities and counties
    • Eliminated the county mental health property tax levy
