History

Excellence in tax administration since 1937

The Federation of Tax Administrators was organized in 1937 to improve the quality of state tax administration by providing services to state tax authorities and administrators. It was organized by representatives of the North American Gasoline Tax Conference (NAGTC), the National Association of Tax Administrators (NATA), and the National Tobacco Tax Association (NTTA). In 1984, the three associations consolidated into the National Association of Tax Administrators composed of the NATA Motor Fuel Tax and NATA Tobacco Tax sections.

In June 1988, the organizations assumed the name Federation of Tax Administrators (FTA), a 501(c)(3) organization.
