Croatian Taxpayers Alliance Lipa has launched a new project – The Black Book of Public Spending, which documents examples of wasteful spending and raises awareness of citizens and taxpayers about their rights. The Black Book will expose stories of taxpayers’ money being spent in an unnecessary, non-transparent or even illegal manner.
This project was made possible by a crowdfunding campaign that Lipa launched at the end of 2017. The campaign not only reached its target but raised 30 percent more than initially planned!
In 2017, Lipa already managed to stop the Law on Local Taxes with a national petition signed by 150,000 people, saving taxpayers at least 300 million HRK annually.
