Dear IRS – As in past years, you will find enclosed our federal tax forms which we have filled out as accurately as possible. What you will not find enclosed is any payment. This is because we cannot in good conscience willingly pay for the wars and killing perpetrated by our government, nor for the weapons of mass destruction that the government continues to develop, maintain, and deploy.
Consequently, we are once again sending every penny of our federal tax liability to non-profit groups that help the victims of our wars, provide food and shelter to the poor at home, or are actively developing nonviolent alternatives to armed conflict.
This is the time when our collective home, our earth, needs every human effort, every resource, dedicated to saving it and all species on it from the havoc of climate change.
