War Tax Resisters Penalty Fund
The War Tax Resisters’ Penalty Fund was begun in 1982 by members and friends of the North Manchester Fellowship of Reconciliation. They found that IRS interest and penalties kept many people from continuing their war tax resistance, and prevented many more from even considering such a witness. The founders decided to invite sympathetic people to form a broad base that would help sustain and suppport war tax resisters. They hoped that with hundreds of supporters they could lighten the resisters’ financial burdens and also actively involve larger numbers of people in the war tax resistance movement.
The Nonviolent Action Community of Cascadia is a Seattle-based organization which uses nonviolent action to create political and social change. NACC acts to interrupt and transform militarism and other forms of violence, and to build a society based upon community, economic justice, environmental awareness, personal empowerment, and feminist, queer-positive, and anti-racist principles.
NACC uses creative nonviolent direct action, war tax resistance, public education and coalition-building towards these ends, creating community and developing empowerment and conflict-resolution skills in the process.
Southern California War Tax Resistance supports nonviolent refusal to pay for war. The ultimate vote of the populace is whether they give their lives and labor and earnings to the war system.

Campaign for a Peace Tax Fund
The National Campaign for a Peace Tax Fund, a national non-profit organization located in Washington, D.C., advocates for US federal legislation enabling conscientious objectors to war to have their federal income taxes directed to a special fund which could be used for non-military purposes only. This fund would be called the Peace Tax Fund and the bill we seek to pass is called the Religious Freedom Peace Tax Fund Act.
