Few organizations exist, especially at the local level, to watch and monitor how our local and state governments spend your tax dollars. The Santa Barbara County Taxpayers Association has been serving taxpayers in this capacity for over 50 years.


Unlike other local tax-exempt organizations, SBCTA receives no financial support from any government entity or 501 (C) 3 organizations, such as the "Fund for Santa Barbara", which claims to be a nonpartisan charitable organization and yet funds local political groups who continually support the waste, fraud and abuse of taxpayer money.



Our members are extremely important to keep SBCTA going. We rely on membership dues for approximately 50% of our budget. If you aren't yet a member, we ask you to consider joining the SBCTA so we can continue fighting to hold down your taxes!
