The Taxpayer Protection Pledge: Since 1986, ATR has sponsored the “Taxpayer Protection Pledge”, a written promise by legislators and candidates for office that commits them to oppose tax increases. There are separate versions at the national and state level.
ONE, oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses; and
TWO, oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates.
In the version for state legislators, the signer pledges that:
I will oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes.
***ATR asks every candidate for elected office on the state and federal level to make a written commitment to their constituents to “oppose and vote against tax increases.”
