TTARA is widely recognized as the premier tax policy group in Texas. For more than 60 years, TTARA and the TTARA Research Foundation have worked with Texas business and political leaders, as well as state tax administrators, to encourage tax policies that are fair and equitable to all.
TTARA closely follows legislative and executive actions regarding tax administration. Legislative proposals affecting the state’s tax system are reviewed and measured against clearly stated tax principles, and improvements are advocated at all levels of government. TTARA is involved with state and local tax administrators in developing rules, regulations, and procedures for the efficient administration of the major tax sources in Texas—property, sales, and franchise. TTARA is also involved with unclaimed property issues and the administration of other state taxes and fees.
