Forum Post: does the occupy movement have any official position on paying income taxes?

what is the consensus on income taxes among occupyers?

while the occupy movement has sharpened public discourse about income inequality, and the seemingly arbitrary nature of taxation, little change has been made to the system.

april 15th is drawing near. what do we do?

Actually I've participated in the think tank at Zuccotti when it was open. Many people agreed that people earning under 80,000 should not pay taxes on income.

taxKilla is a free protest tool which turns the system around on itself. the legal tax avoidances of the 1% become accessible to the 99% and the entire basis of stealing from the masses to feed the elites is subverted.

this immense and ultimate power is in our hands today. compare this action to standing outside of buildings while they laugh and count our money inside. what do you think? www.taxkilla.com

No. OWS has no position on income taxes. There is no consensus on the question nor is there much discussion of it to my knowledge.

In terms of what you do on tax day. I think it depends on how much you make and on what your view of the state is, but that is only my personal opinion. Personally, I don't think anyone making below the living wage ought to have to pay any taxes at all. As far as the super wealthy go, I'm ambivalent. I'm for taking their money, but when it goes to taxes that's not exactly expropriating them since it is their state to begin with.

No taxation without representation.

That's because there's no such thing.

Bigfoot doesn't either.

Yes, you should pay more and they should get more things for free. LOL.
