About us

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 organization was the brainchild of local residents who have an interest in assuring that governing bodies comply with State and Federal regulations, the CTA intends to serve as a watchdog over elected officials and bureaucrats who spend taxpayer monies in order to assure that the public interest is protected. 

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.  Providing research, analysis, and education on matters of interest to said taxpayers while advocating fiscal responsibility, accountability and best practices in local government affairs."
