Tax day is upon us, and you wonder how to mark this probably sunny day in a memorable fashion. I have an idea.
Four years ago, under the auspices of SUSTAIN (Stop U.S. Tax Funded Aid To Israel Now!), I was involved in making a flier, reproduced below, that lists some useful tidbits of information in a mock 1040 form, which we dubbed 1040WAR. We distributed it at central post offices, and found people on tax day unusually receptive to new information. Go figure! The form was printed and re-used in subsequent years by many other folks all over the U.S.
A group of activists have updated and made the form available again. It can be downloaded at www.archive.org/download/1040WAR/1040war-3.0.pdf, and the list of sources can be downloaded at www.archive.org/download/1040WAR/1040war-sources-3.0.pdf.
Download, print and distribute at a central post office. You will have the best tax day ever, guaranteed!
PS. if you a member of a radical group and want the name and contact information of your group or organization included on the 1040WAR forms you distribute, that can be done. Let me know.
