War Taxes

Today is the day that the U.S. Government says is the deadline for filing the annual income tax.  Even though there is a new president, there is and will still be too much of our money spent on the military industrial complex.

The National War Tax Resistance Coordinating Committee (NWTRCC) is an organization that advocates for withholding the portion of one’s income tax that is spent on war.  It is a coalition of groups from across the U.S., formed in 1982 to provide information and support to people involved in or considering some form of war tax resistance (WTR).  Each year there are actions planned all around the country – view today’s actions here.

Several years ago Tom and I were in D.C.on April 15th and partiicpated in an action at the IRS building there.  People gathered to collectively present a giant (I mean giant in the physical sense!) check for their portion of taxes spent on war to a non-profit organization.  Very clever and creative.
