OUTA is a proudly South African non-profit Civil Action Organisation, comprising of and supported by people who are passionate about improving the prosperity of our nation.
Over time, the South African Government has introduced a number of taxes, levies and fees, which have fallen short of their intended purpose, be it due to: poor policy, ineffective regulatory environment, or unacceptable conduct (maladministration or corruption).
Our work therefore revolves around:
- Questioning and challenging taxation policy and / or the regulatory environment, when these are deemed irrational, unfit or ineffective for their intended purpose.
- Questioning, challenging and attacking the squandering, maladministration and corrupt use of taxes, through a clear and effective methodology, and to hold those responsible to account.
We are apolitical and rely on funding from the public, business and other donor institutions, to do our work of investigation, research, communication, empowerment and litigation.
Becoming a member and contributing to OUTA defines you as an Active Citizen and part of the solution when challenging poor governance, maladministration and corruption. Contributing members also benefit from OUTA’s assistance mechanisms, such as the e-Toll Defence Umbrella.
