Some bits and pieces from here and there:
- The War Tax Resisters Penalty Fund has sent out its Summer 2014 appeal. They’re aiming to bring in $6,341 from fund subscribers to reimburse three war tax resisters who have lost penalties and interest in addition to the amounts they had refused to pay. Subscribers are being asked to pay $30 each towards this amount. In its last appeal, sent out in , the fund successfully raised $8,170 of the $10,410 it sought (this roughly 80% success rate is pretty typical of the fund — some subscribers move and can’t be reached, and others drop the ball, but most come through).
- The number of Americans who are taxpatriating — abandoning their U.S. citizenship or residency status in order to get out from under the thumb of the IRS — continues to rise.
