What If We All Stopped Paying Taxes? - by Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings

Broadcast Date(s): 




We've never made enough money to pay taxes in almost 40 years of our adult life. One thing as you mentioned it's kind of invisible. No one knows our original intention of staying below a taxable income level. We often forget.

4/5/15 program on war tax resistance

Thanks so much for producing this excellent program on WTR. Peter Smith is someone who really puts his beliefs into action. The war tax resister penalty fund is a creative way to support the war tax resisters if one is unable to resist oneself. I hope you can interview a new war tax resister every year on tax day, highlighting the different types of war tax resistance including the path of living below taxable income level.
