A whole host of liberals on Twitter have decided that they aren’t going to pay taxes and many of them are planning marches for tax day.

People like Mia Farrow are tweeting about refusing to pay taxes now that Donald J. Trump is in office. The Guardian interviewed Andrew Newman, a Stony Brook University — state funded — English professor who is a part of the effort to resist President Trump by not paying taxes.

“My tax money will be going towards putting up a wall on the Mexican border instead of helping sick people. It will contribute to the destruction of the environment and maybe more nuclear weapons. I think there will be a redistribution of wealth from the middle class to the wealthy elite and Trump’s campaign for the working man and woman was an absolute fraud. If you pay taxes you are implicated in the system.”

Many liberals are calling for actual protests and demonstrations on tax day.

Huffington Post is reporting that anti-Trump rallies and marches planned for tax day are beginning to pick up steam on Twitter.

A Facebook event has popped up and over 39,000 people are listed as interested. The description reads, in part:

Join us at the White House on Saturday, April 15, 2017, to march and show Donald Trump that he owes us transparency. Two-thirds of Americans are concerned that he may be putting his interests ahead of the country’s. Until we see his tax returns, we can’t know for sure.

Some on Twitter find the idea of liberals not paying their taxes pretty entertaining:

    Liberals refuse to pay federal taxes: government looses $5000. Government refuses to pay welfare to liberals: due to massive savings wall to mexico will be made of pure gold.

    • Lacommenter

      You want ‘loses’ not ‘looses’ 🙂

      • Scott Ferguson

        You forgot the period at the end of your sentence. 😉

  • thos1787

    Humorous that people too stupid to do their own taxes think they could tell anything from viewing a tax return as complex as what DJT’s return must, given the vast sources of income and investments, entail ! I haven’t even heard anyone say whether they want corporate or personal returns !!!

    • Hunnyb

      I doubt they know the difference.

      • thos1787

        Agreed ! Most can’t fill out a 1040EZ without H&R Block !!

  • deplorable jmarie

    Super funny that they’re not clear on the difference between not releasing taxes and not paying taxes. Are they all unacquainted with the IRS?

    • William

      If they are…they won’t be for long. Regardless of partisan bullshit, the IRS doesn’t play around.

      • David Calvani

        If these people are ALL willing to go to prison rather than pay taxes, then what, William. I know it’s a stretch to expect that most of this is more than talk, but what if it is? We know there are people willing to use violence just to keep people like Milo from speaking. It doesn’t seem like too much of a stretch to see people actually willing to be tax protesters because they hate Trump.

        For my part, why conservatives pay taxes to support the federal judiciary’s unconstitutional and insane abortion rulings is beyond me.

  • kamenetz

    Well, good luck with that one. If there’s one agency you don’t want to cross or mess with, regardless who’s in the WH, it’s the IRS. While I still despise of paying any taxes, at least I know it’s headed for “some” expenses in the agenda we voted for. Of course, most important this is very treacherous in the way these loons describe how they’re against the wall, limiting immigration, etc DJT agenda and “contributing to it”… which is meant to protect all of us, including you libtards.

    • David Calvani

      Sorry, kamenetz, but I don’t like the sheer cowardice of your comment.

      It’s for the big-government loving lefties to spread fear of the state, not their opponents. (And it should go without saying that if enough people join such an effort it will have its desired effect.)

  • Lacommenter

    How ironic that the same loony liberals who think that government should pay for everything to everyone including illegal aliens apparently have no clue where the government gets its money for all their beloved pet projects! The scope of their childish stupidity is breath taking!

  • Bob Wehadababyitsaboy

    I’ve never paid taxes in my life. It was either the years when I lived off selling drugs and armed robbery, or somebody else has always taken care of all that. I can barely take care of my dog, I am in no position to be responsible for anything related to the government. But, at least, I’m not some hippie douchebag whining about fucking nothing.

    • Roger Sheddy

      The problem is, thanks to cinema, critters like Jane fonda will still be nattering at us long after they’re dead…

      • Aaron Aarons

        So will Oranguturd!

        • Roger Sheddy

          Yes,we are all tired of Obummer.

          Like the old-timers used to say, “eat wonders and shit cucumbers.” That POtuS does look like an overgrown turd. He acts like one. Such a stinky,useless turd.

          But now,hopefully,he’s history.

          As for his “legacy,” –the sooner they dismantle THAT, the better.

  • Hunnyb

    Now who loses out by people not paying their taxes, your state, and city, that’s who. You’re not hurting Trump, you’re hurting those who benefit from Federal funds.

    • HT

      The irony is especially pronounced from those twits in CA calling for not paying taxes, after CA just announced they’ll need federal help to deal with their damn dam problem. Which they ignored for 13 years. Liberals truly are an idiot species.

      • AverageJoe1987

        I read on another site that California put funds towards a different dam a few years ago that had nothing wrong with it, while ignoring the failing one. And they spend $25 billion taking care of illegals, all while ignoring the failing dam.

        California hates Trump and want to secede. But now that they need something they suddenly are saying “Please President Trump, help us!!!”

        • HT

          Unfortunately, that is a common and recurring theme from the left these days. They protest the free market system and capitalism, but want money for “free” tuition, health care, etc… They are not very bright.

        • Aaron Aarons

          California tax money — lots of it! – goes to relieving disasters in states run by righturds who even oppose spending for disaster relief.

      • David Calvani

        The US Government is under no Constitutional obligation to help California with its dam problem.

        • HT

          Dam right!

    • David Calvani

      Are you serious, Hunnyb?

      Complaining that refusing to pay taxes to the US Government harms states and localities? Most of that funneling of federal money to the states isn’t constitutional in the first place, and its certainly not efficient for people to send money to Washington DC so Congress can dole it back to the places where they live.

      So Milo’s readers believe in the limited government the US Constitution actually created or not? Do they believe in the classical liberal principles on which the American Republic was founded or not? There is little to nothing in this comment thread to demonstrate that they do.

      • Roger Sheddy

        Exactly right. To paraphrase the anarchists, taxation is theft. I would need less help from the government if they weren’t going through my pockets all the time.

  • HT

    We have to do a cost analysis on how much it’ll cost to house them in prison vs. deporting them to another country. Like Venezuela.

    • William

      They can physically help to build the wall to pay it back.

  • Frank Lee

    Apparently none of these folks have ever heard of the IRS and their ability to collect taxes from delinquent taxpayers. Can’t wait to see their property confiscated.

    • David Calvani

      That’s fair, Frank, if you’re happy to see property confiscated from people who refuse to pay taxes for good reasons, or from people who make mistakes with the overly complicated tax code, rather than just from hypocritical leftists.

      Otherwise you’re just being a snot.

      • Paul Robson

        This isn’t going to be difficult though is it. Even if the IRS don’t notice the protest (they will) then at some point they are going to ask where their tax filing is. At that point, they can either say they have made a mistake or whatever – in which case the IRS may give them a short time to sort it out (as it happens this is my exact position at the moment with HMRC in England, though I’m not sure whose mistake it is). Or they can tell them they aren’t doing it.

        Assuming they go for option 1, all that does is delay it. If they still haven’t filed in a couple of weeks or whatever, the IRS will assume they are dicking around and go after them.

        IME tax people are quite reasonable. If you make a mistake, or are unsure they are quite okay with it as long as you make efforts to fix the problem and keep them informed.

        • David Calvani

          How your comment is a response to mine is unknown to me.

          Either Frank Lee believes there are proper reasons for people to refuse to pay taxes or he doesn’t. We don’t know as he didn’t respond. My point was he can’t decently say he enjoys the thought of their property being confiscated because of failure regarding a direct tax (like an income tax) just because he doesn’t like the reasons behind the proposed protest. (And I agree the stated reasons are absurd.)

          As for your assertion that “tax people are quite reasonable” — that’s highly debatable. Let’s just say they’ll be as reasonable as they think the tax laws allow them to be, which often isn’t very. I know of people fined for — and also charged interest (which is in itself outrageous) for very honest mistakes (which are easy to make given the absurd complexity of the tax code). I do not find that reasonable in the slightest. (But it is all acceptable in the land of the free and home of the brave.)

      • Carl Fredricks

        I hope the game every liberals home.

    Good luck with the fees and interest you will pay later – libtards.

  • positively4thstreet

    It’s just getting too damned painful to even know what they are saying and doing. My stomach hurts from laughing and head hurts just trying to figure it out.

    • William

      Let’s all agree that Mia Farrow’s taxes can go towards bridge repair in upper Idaho. There – problem solved.

      • Roger Sheddy

        A bridge in Alaska.

        Our maybe Madison County, if she likes

  • positively4thstreet

    So the well off whiners want to quit paying taxes. I thought they bragged about being the compassionate ones?? Of course we know they’re a bunch of dumb liars but still. About 45 million Americans, about 1 in 7, need food stamps to help them survive.

    “According to the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, in 2010, safety-net programs consumed 14 percent of the U.S. national budget, totaling $482 billion. These programs include Supplemental Security Income for the elderly or disabled poor and unemployment insurance, school meals, low-income housing assistance, child-care assistance and food stamps.”

    • David Calvani

      Ah, finally, a proper comment — pointing out the lefties hypocrisy.

      But to be fair, the lefties are always hypocritical.

    • Aaron Aarons

      As a leftie, I know that some Federal, state and local taxes go for things I support. But so much more goes for things I abhor (mainly involving defense of the interests of the U.S. ruling class by actual or threatened violence), that whenever I have a practical alternative, I avoid paying taxes.

  • Kalin Xhaos

    what a great idea! do it libtards we dare you!

  • Myob Nosy

    Bubba’s goin ta be happy very soon. Hey liberals, don’t drop the soap!

  • Sam2

    Liberals are entitled to your money, not the strings attached to it.

  • Frank

    These people are idiots. For one, people don’t “pay all their taxes” on April 15. Most people have already paid their taxes thru withholdings on their W2 paycheck, and April 15 is the day to file your taxes and reconcile them. Some have to pay, most get a refund. If you have to pay a large sum, you may be hit with additional fines for underpayment of taxes during the year. And for 1099 income people, they also pay estimated taxes during the year if their income is large enough, or they too will pay additional fines for underpayment of taxes during the year. So the thought that people are not going to pay taxes on April 15 is actually going to do anything is quite ignorant. But don’t let facts get in the way of your protest…go for it.

    • William

      And if these chumps decide to NOT file on April 15th, any refunded funds not paid out sit in an account gaining interest, making the govt more money. Oooohhhh, the irony.

      See, this is why it’s better to study business instead of gender issues.

      • reelmerican

        You and Frank nailed it. You must have some real life experience & education under your belts rather than a PhD in Liberal Arts, Women’s Studies or Sanskrit. Though Sanskrit probably has some merit with the Yoga crowd. Namaste.

        • William

          I would say yes to both of those things. My father taught me early on about bank interest and I accumulated several college degrees but what really makes a person smart is an open mind and open eyes. Not hard to make connections in life, but those who are either afraid or selfish will shrink the world around them, create a bubble, dictate the terms in that bubble, and see life as they wish it was – not as it really is, which makes for a rude awakening. Hence, the reason why they want govt legislation to help them maintain their bubble supremacy.

  • Adnil Yelkam

    Y’all might want to look at your payroll checks. LOL. Dumbasses. Maybe you should all run down and claim exempt. See how that works out for you at the end of the year and then you can take to social media and complain about your garnishments the following year. I also suppose you protestors won’t be filing if you’re owed money this year? #uselessprotest.

    • William

      HAHHA – I didn’t think of that. Yes, most of their taxes are already paid…by law. I want Trump to hold a refund check in his hand, waving it saying “Now, who’s your president? say it. C’mon…”

      • Adnil Yelkam

        Kind of like the state of Cali in their recent request for disaster aide

    • David Calvani

      What to stop them from claiming a boat load of deductions — so that there payroll deductions are too low — and then not filling? It is with fillings that the IRS notices the problems that lead to fines and garnishments. (And here we are assuming someone subject to payroll taxes in the first place.)

      The attitude commonly expressed here that somehow it just isn’t possible to do what they’re proposing seems silly. It is fair to doubt their seriousness, of course, but to act like they’re proposing going to the moon by flapping their arms isn’t.

  • Charles Borner

    To, to protest Trump, you’re going to become a tax cheat.
    You’re going to invite audits for HOW many years?
    Then, when you refuse to pay the amount owed and the fines, the IRS comes in and basically does it for you, including further fines?

    Are these people using ANYTHING above their mouths and behind their eyes?

    • David Calvani

      Why do you assume that these people will simple allow the IRS to come in “and basically [do] it for [them], including further fines” without, say, resorting to the sort of violence Milo witnessed at UC Berkeley?

      Given that we are dealing with angry leftists, and given the level of anti-Trump hysteria within the Left ever since the election, such an assumption hardly seems warranted.

      • Charles Borner

        Because the government ALWAYS gets its shekel.
        ALWAYS.

        And if it means getting warrants, and dropping in a bunch of government accountants, and applying fines, they’ll do it.

      • Paul Robson

        Because they are cowards ; most of them. They will throw things and hit people in black masks with groups of other thugs ; will they stand out as themselves against something ? No.

        The IRS will come after them as individuals.

  • Zen Bbq

    I’m fairly certain there’s no law that requires a presidential candidate to release his/her tax returns. In fact, it’s a ridiculous practice and should be stopped. No candidate should have to reveal his/her taxes, ever.
    The liberal logic that since Trump didn’t disclose his tax return means I don’t have to pay taxes is apples to oranges. By law, he doesn’t have to disclose his return; by law, you have to file one. And President Trump is avoiding taxes, not evading them. Learn the difference…

    • AverageJoe1987

      Libs are stupid.

      They think not letting everyone see how much you made and paid out in taxes is the same as not paying at all.

    • David Calvani

      I doubt that avoiding taxes is much different from evading them to people who simply don’t qualify for the avoidance — yet are more hurt economically by the taxes they pay than any billionaire like the president is.

      • Zen Bbq

        You mean the 45% of American households that don’t pay any income tax what so ever? Sounds like tax avoidance to me.
        The fact is, the President is using legal tax strategies to avoid undue taxation, just like everyone should be doing. The tax code is written to encourage this behavior. Congress wants you to start a business, save for retirement, buy a house, go to college, and donate to charities among other things. Many, many tax breaks for middle class and lower income.
        Not nearly as many for those in and around the poverty level because, as the number above suggests, many don’t pay taxes at all. In fact, the Earned Income Credit (EIC) gives you money back from the Federal Government, even though you didn’t pay any taxes to begin with; it’s a negative tax! I doubt President Trump or President Obama has access to that one.
        If you get up to $5,572 back from the IRS and have no reported income, what’s the marginal tax rate and what is the economic result?
        The GAO and IRS estimate that 10% to 15% of eligible recipients for the EIC don’t claim it. What’s the morality of that?
        So tell me, is your doubt based on your lack of knowledge of the tax code or are you just virtue signalling? Lack of knowledge I can help with.

    • Paul Robson

      Those last two sentences are perhaps the most optimistic I have ever read …

      • Zen Bbq

        Not sure why you’d say that; care to clarify?

        • Paul Robson

          The lefties will understand avoidance versus evasion…. Or that public money actually isn’t a bottomless pit.

          Doesn’t matter what’s in Trumps tax return, they are so thick they will slam him. Amazing how many think tax is on turnover not profit for example.

          • Zen Bbq

            *nod* Thanks for the explanation. You’re right, of course. I figure, if enough of us explain it to them, they’ll eventually understand it (or at least, believe it). After all, that’s how the MSM and public schools do it and it clearly works…

          • Paul Robson

            Nooooo chance. They think “avoidance” (legal) is what I and people I like do, “evasion” (illegal) is what Trump and people I don’t like do.

            I doubt very much Trump has done anything illegal (these people are so stupid they think if you offset the cost of building a hotel against the money it makes it is avoiding paying tax …..) but the numpties and the media will find something and crucify him for it.

            We had (in the UK) our own little McCarthyite tax thing for a while. Main target was Starbucks.

            The thickies couldn’t grasp how a store could make a profit and Starbucks overall didn’t. The fact that Starbucks is expanding like there’s no tomorrow and while an individual store may make money on a day to day basis, it’s still paying back investment in that store and investing in new ones ….. you might as well be talking in a foreign language.

  • Teresa Robison Ford

    Okay…help me out here. If you are employed your taxes are already coming out of each paycheck. Normally when people file their tax return they get some kind of a refund and money back for their personal use. What you’re saying is not logical. You are going to leave more taxes in the coffer by not filing. The only thing this does is puts you in the category of breaking the law. And if you’re self employed and you don’t file your taxes the IRS gets to come in and take money from your business, your home, bank account, and other possessions. Think people!!! My personal belief for over 20 years has been that income and property taxes are immoral and illegal. No-one should be able to collect tax off the sweat of another person’s work or on a home and/or land, once purchased. This system punishes individuals who lose a job or retires in the situation where they might lose that asset because they fall on hard times. There are so many things we all agree upon. And so many things we can change if we demand change. But change comes through education, cooperation, and changes to the law. Refusing to pay your taxes when there is a law requiring that just hurts you and you gain nothing in the end.

    • David Calvani

      These people aren’t interested in helping themselves, Teresa. There interested in making a statement — and perhaps denying the government some money. You know — the way Thoreau did when he refused to pay the poll tax to fund the Mexican-American war. He was put in jail for his actions. He never thought he was just hurting himself.(That the episode was one of error upon error is not important here.)

      You complain bitterly about the very existence of income taxes, yet you condemn people for taking the direct action possible against them. I am not surprised as I’ve long thought conservatives to be cowards, but still…

      • Teresa Robison Ford

        David, do you comment just to argue with everyone and to wax eloquent? Or do you actually have some intelligent input to add to this conversation? Is there a reason you refer to so many as cowards? What would you have us do to be mighty warriors in your version of the world? Do enlighten us, please?

    That is the most absurd thing to say that someones taxes are going to build a wall instead of helping the sick. Taxes are never specifically spread like that. That’s why there’s a section in the tax code for donations which are tax deductible.
