The Orange County Taxpayers Association (OCTax) is THE taxpayers’ advocate on many public policy issues in Orange County, such as:
• Property and development rights;
• Taxes and regulations;
• School bonds;
• Public employee pensions and other benefits;
• Fee-supported services (e.g. water, toll roads) vs. tax-supported governmental services;
• Statewide tax equity for Orange County;
• Transportation (Measure M, the Toll Roads); and
• Federal, state, and local legislation that affects Orange County.
OCTax supports tax-supported programs that are fair, understandable, cost-effective, and good for the economy; we oppose those that are not. Members receive analyses of tax and spending proposals, meet regularly with governmental leaders, and have a clear voice in public policy issues. Orange County Taxpayers Association’s positions on ballot initiatives are powerful persuaders of voters.
