Interior Taxpayers' Association, Inc.
In Fairbanks, Alaska, ITA stands for the Interior Taxpayers' Association, a non-profit, all volunteer group incorporated in the Interior of Alaska in 1987. Our goal is to ensure the most cost effective government possible, and to make it affordable for everyone to live here, with enough discretionary income to enjoy it as well. We continually strive to lower local taxes, or at least ensure that the taxpayers get their money's worth!

We just finished our annual Local Candidates' Forum and here are our endorsements for the October 5, 2021 election:
City Council: Jerry Cleworth and Jonathan Bagwill.

We were pleased with how many either joined or renewed their membership at the forum. If you want to join, use the "donate" button farther down on this page to join or donate. Sorry we could not make the button say "join" but the first $25 you "donate" will go to a membership unless you tell us otherwise.

Our meetings used to be held on the third Wednesday of the month , usually at Denny's, but we have not had a meeting in a long time, as there was not much happening, and we hate to bother people with meetings if it is not strictly necessary. The last meeting was our Candidate Forum, Sept. 22, 2009 at the Assembly Chambers. Sign up on our list to find out about future meetings.
