CEW-IT is a founding member of the Tax Justice Alliance Uganda. TJAU was established in 2014 following the realization that it was important for CSOs in Uganda to come together and deliberate on tax issues and pool human, financial and technological resources for common and/or joint action. Since then, the Alliance has spearheaded civil society debate and engaged different stakeholders on tax issues in Uganda.

The Tax Justice Alliance Uganda is a gradually growing network both in membership and the number of issues it covers. Consequently, it was considered prudent to establish specialized thematic working groups to cover the diversity of issues dealt with by the alliance in specialized and greater depth and to be able to better manage the growing membership.
