Pay Under Protest

A campaign for War Tax resisters — 2011
EASY and LEGAL!
This year:

  • Take a stand against war taxes.
  • Be counted!

Join the “Pay under Protest” campaign organized by a group of experienced California Quaker war tax resisters.

Our goal this first year is to get at least 200 people to pay under protest.

If you are filing the IRS 1040:

  1. File your IRS 1040 as usual in 2011.
  2. Find the addresses (email or snail mail) of your federal legislators.
  3. By April 15th, 2011, write to your legislators saying that your are paying under protest the portion of your tax bill that goes for war (about half.)
