Welcome to the
Inland Empire Taxpayers Association!
Fighting for Freedom, Less Government & Lower Taxes
The Inland Empire Taxpayers Association (IETA) is an organization founded with the primary goal of putting an end to attempts by various local government agencies to raise our taxes… including passing new bonds and raising fees. Since its creation in April, 2006, the IETA has been successful at defeating ballot measures totaling over $813 million. In all, through its efforts fighting taxes at the ballot box, the IETA has directly prevented the creation of over $1.6 billion of new public debt (initial bond amounts plus interest).
The Inland Empire Taxpayers Association is dedicated to researching ballot measures, candidates and public policy issues, educating the public on these matters and taking action to protect the interests of taxpayers in Riverside and San Bernardino Counties.
