About: Wake County Taxpayers Association
We welcome you to our website and hope you will take time to read the documents it contains. We have had a strong presence in our community over more than a decade and have been instrumental in not only defeating issues and projects we consider wasteful or unnecessary, but, we have participated in community commissions and advisory committees where our point of view is respected and often accepted.
Wake County Taxpayers Association Purpose:
The Wake County Taxpayers Association, WCTA, is a non-partisan, all-volunteer organization whose purpose is to monitor the use of taxes, initiate action to reduce excessive taxation, eliminate wasteful government spending, and encourage the wise and common sense use of taxes at all levels of government.
We are particularly concerned about effective education spending as well as the need for high performing students in our schools. The performance of our schools is improving dramatically and the financial stewardship is also getting better. But, there is still a long way to go. We must do better for the children.
We have also opposed efforts to spend millions of dollars on public arenas, sports facilities and meeting centers. While we have not won all of campaigns, we have in the process become a group to be considered when such special interest projects are proposed.
How we help the Wake County Taxpayer...
Since 1994, WCTA, has been successful in keeping tax growth from happening or limited it to a small amount in most jurisdictions. We expect to continue this effort and invite you to join us. You will find current issues we are following, ways to get involved, and joining our WCTA membership on this website.
We monitor the use of taxes and initiate action to reduce excessive taxation, eliminate wasteful government spending, and encourage the common sense use of taxes revenues.
Informing taxpayers is a key part of our strategy and we continue to work to get volunteers to act as watchdogs on the government and collecting the information we need to fulfill our commitment to you.

Cicero on fiscal responsibility..........
"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome becomes bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance." ~ Cicero - 55 BC
