Albemarle Truth in Taxation Alliance is a Political Action Committee (PAC) registered with the Virginia State Board of Elections. Its non-partisan mission is to promote more effective and efficient Albemarle County government, focusing on the budgeting process and taxation issues[1].

History

ATTA's efforts resulted in a public outcry against the tax increase and a nearly $10 million savings to taxpayers[1].
