posted on August 1, 2017

Iowans for Tax Relief (ITR), Iowa’s leading taxpayer advocacy organization, today announced the addition of John Hendrickson to their staff in the role of Policy Analyst.

Before becoming part of the Iowans for Tax Relief team, Hendrickson served as a Research Analyst with Public Interest Institute, a public policy research group. His articles have been published in many newspapers across Iowa including the Des Moines Register and Cedar Rapids Gazette. Below are links to some of his recent articles:

Prior to joining Public Interest Institute Hendrickson also worked as a political reporter and as a researcher for the Heritage Foundation.  Hendrickson earned both his BA and MA degrees in History from the University of North Dakota. He specializes in American political and constitutional history.

ITR President Chris Ingstad said, “John’s ability to understand complex fiscal issues and clearly communicate solutions will help ITR educate and inform Iowans on the pro-growth benefits of decreased spending and lower taxes. Our neighbors in Illinois are living proof that bad policy in state government leads to tax increases. ITR is fortunate to add John’s experience in examining state fiscal policy to our team.”

Iowans for Tax Relief works to limit total government spending and total taxes for the benefit of all Iowa taxpayers.  ITR was established 1978 and is one of the largest taxpayer protection organizations in the country.
