Montanans for Tax Reform (MTR) is about you. It’s about ensuring that government grows within its means and that you are not forced to pay for excessive government growth with increased taxes. In short, it’s about smaller government, less taxes and keeping more of your hard-earned money in your pocket.
Rest assured that we are law-abiding and respectful citizens working to help reform our system. As such, we understand and value the role of government in providing for the basic government services and we support fair appropriate taxes to pay for services received.
Since 2002, MTR has sponsored the Taxpayer Protection Pledge, a written promise by legislators and candidates for office that commits them to oppose any effort to increase the state income taxes on individuals and businesses. More than 1,200 state officeholders, from state representative to governor, have signed the Pledge. Statehouse tax-and-spend interests have to contend with Pledge signers in every state.
Additionally, MTR hosts and sponsors monthly center-right coalition meetings where individuals and organizations can network, share ideas and collaborate on projects. These meetings are patterned after the meetings held by Americans for Tax Reform in Washington, DC and other state leaders in 46 of the 50 states. We have legislative leaders, think-tanks representatives, lobbyists and political activists join us at each meeting. They are one of the most brutally honest exchange of political ideas and insights you will find anywhere.
