I mentioned the case of John Payne, who wrote an address to British Quakers urging them to stop giving money to the government to pay for warfare, over two hundred years ago. He also put these principles into practice by going to extraordinary lengths to avoid taxes on roads, vehicles, buildings, and so forth.
I have since found another mention of him which indicates that his tax resistance continued literally until his dying day:
He died as he had lived, yet left nothing to his children! Not a penny of legacy duty [estate tax] fell into the clutches of a corrupt and extravagant government! But how? The whole of his property had carefully been conveyed, during his life and health, to his various offspring by deeds of gift.
This is very similar to how people avoid the estate tax today.
