Tax Resistance News from the United States

Some bits and pieces from here and there:

An article that recently came to my attention, dated , concerns a tax protest in Semarang, Indonesia.

I’m relying on a computer-translated version of the article, so can’t be entirely confident that I’m getting the full story as written, but it seems to have been a protest by members of the small Partai Rakyat Demokratik against president Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono.

The article says that hundreds of protesters pledged to refuse to pay a tax, and as part of their protest, burned their Nomer Peserta Wajib Pajak (taxpayer identification) paperwork. Party chairman Sunu Pajar said, “we refuse to pay taxes as a form of resistance.”
