Spanish War Tax Resisters Cart “Bad Milk” to Protest

A couple of links that caught my eye:

  • Antimilitarist activists and women’s groups call for war tax resistance in Bilbao (español) — a news report of a public demonstration designed to highlight the cost of military spending and encourage redirection. The demonstrators gave cartons of milk to passers-by, using the slogan “el gasto militar nos pone de mala leche” (military spending puts us in “bad milk” — a bad mood).
  • CNNMoney reports on what it calls “an all-but-overlooked provision of the health reform law” that was recently signed into law that would dramatically expand the requirement for businesses to file 1099s. According to the article, “beginning in all companies will have to issue 1099 tax forms not just to contract workers but to any individual or corporation from which they buy more than $600 in goods or services in a tax year.” TaxGirl takes a closer look at the details. And here’s some commentary from Cato @ Liberty.
