Capistrano Taxpayers Association
a 501 (c) 4 non-profit public interest organization

Our Mission

In response to community concerns about such issues as the rising cost of water, property tax increases and various other “fee” increases passed on to residents and businesses by our City government, a group of local residents formed the Capistrano Taxpayers Association as a non-profit public interest organization.

The Capistrano Taxpayer Association, a California 501(c) (4) corporation, was established to serve as a watchdog over elected officials and bureaucrats who spend taxpayer monies in order to assure that the public interest is protected. The organization was formed by local residents who have an interest in assuring that governing bodies comply with State and Federal regulations.


According to CTA’s mission statement, “...the CTA will foster and advance the interest of taxpayers within the City of San Juan Capistrano, and immediately adjacent areas [by] providing research, analysis, and education on matters of interest to said taxpayers while advocating fiscal responsibility, accountability and best practices in local government affairs."
