Dear IRS

First-time Resister or Wanna-Be Resister

Mad about the Border Wall?

Nervous but will resist? Choose a small amount for your first year of resistance. $10? Many are choosing $54 to represent Trump’s increase of $54 billion for the Pentagon.

Template letter to the IRS — anyone can send a protest letter. Print and fill in the PDF or download the rtf file and make it your own.

File on paper and mail your forms in. Avoid e-file and gum up the system a bit (perfectly legal).

Attend a local or regional workshop about war tax resistance.

Fill out this form to request a presentation or workshop (anytime!).

Anyone can use the Peace Tax Return.

Participate in the flip side of resistance:

Redirect your taxes with the Collective Redirection 2017.

Be a Public Resister

Add your name to this sign on statement.

Add your name to the War Tax Boycott.

Already paid but want to be able to resist next year?

Salaried employees: if you are getting a refund or didn’t owe taxes you might need to change your W-4 or make Withholding Adjustments.

Self-employed: If you overpaid estimated taxes, pay lower amounts through 2017 so that you will owe some money next year. Then you can choose whether and how much to resist.
