The National Campaign for a Peace Tax Fund advocates for legislation, H.R. 4169, which will protect the First Amendment rights of Americans who have deeply held religious, moral, and ethical beliefs about how their federal income taxes are used for military purposes. Many Americans seek to pay their income taxes knowing they are following the leadings of their conscience. However, a minority of Americans find these deeply held beliefs challenged because of their objection to war.About the Organization
Church of the Brethren, Mennonites, Quakers, and others represent this minority whose religious liberty is compromised when they pay their income taxes. Our government already recognizes the liberty of those who have deeply held beliefs against war and they are exempt from military service. We seek equal justice under the law for these taxpayers. H.R. 4169 will protect the rights of all as envisioned in The Bill of Rights of the United States Constitution. Find out more about H.R. 4169, the Religious Freedom Peace Tax Fund Act.About the Bill
