The CalTax Foundation is a 501(c)3 not-for-profit organization funded through grants and generous donations from taxpayers. While established by the California Taxpayers Association, it is its own separate entity. It does not take positions on state or local ballot measures, or local, state, or federal legislation. The CalTax Foundation also does not endorse, support, or oppose any political parties or candidates for public office.
