Taxpayer Protection Pledge
The national Taxpayer Protection Pledge was started in 1986 as the first project of Americans for Tax Reform.
The original National Pledge reads:
I ,____________, pledge to the taxpayers of the _____ district of the State of _________ and to the American People that I will:
ONE, oppose any and all efforts to increase the marginal income tax rates for individuals and/or businesses; and
TWO, oppose any net reduction or elimination of deductions and credits, unless matched dollar for dollar by further reducing tax rates.
