“What is really needed,” says FSK, “is an agorist IRS insurance program. That way, you can be reimbursed for fines, penalties, and even jail time if you get busted for tax evasion.” Something like the War Tax Resisters Penalty Fund but more inclusive both in what sort of resisters may apply and which sorts of penalties they can seek reimbursement for. , I mentioned the Breton Association in France, which “proposed, in the first place, to refuse to pay any illegal tax, and in the second place to raise by contribution a common fund for indemnifying any subscriber, whose property or person might suffer by reason of his refusal.”
The members subscribed each ten francs. In the event of any tax being imposed without the consent of the Chambers, or with the consent of a Chamber of Deputies created by any illegal alteration of the existing law, payment of the tax was to be refused, and the money subscribed was to be employed in defending and indemnifying the persons who should so refuse, and to prosecute all who might be concerned in the imposing, or the levying of such illegal taxes.
This was considered so dangerous that the government prosecuted newspapers who dared to print the Breton Association’s manifesto.
