“What If the Government Had to Earn Your Money?”

The Problem

Taxation ensures that the government’s revenue is independent of the outcomes it achieves, leading to ineffectiveness, waste, and even corruption in government services.

The Solution

Give people a say in where their tax dollars go, allowing them to send them to where they will do the most good. This will improve the accountability of government and, most importantly, practical outcomes for real people.

The tax system should serve the people, and not the other way around.

Most Human Welfare Isn’t Funded By Taxation

Most of our human needs are met by non-governmental entities, many of which deliver services more effectively and efficiently than government agencies. Introducing choice into taxation will allow us to send our tax dollars to wherever they can do the most good and to whomever can do the most good with them.


A non-profit is a corporation whose shareholders do not make profits and which measures its success in terms of a benefit it provides to the community it serves.

Co-ops/Mutual Societies

Whereas a charity acts as a third party that receives donations from some people, which it uses to the benefit of other people, a mutual society or co-op involves multiple people coming together for their collective benefit. Typically, members put funds in to a pot when they can afford to, to take them out when they need to.

For-Profit Corporations

The overwhelming majority of the products and services that Americans require are provided by for-profit corporations, which directly provide a needed product or service for money. Since a company must provide value to customers to make a profit, its interests are aligned with those of the people that it serves.

“So, what if you could choose where to send your tax dollars?”

The Tax Revolution Is Here!

The idea of a “voluntary” tax system that is truly voluntary may seem like a huge jump from where we are today.
But it really isn’t. In fact, not only is such a thing feasible: It’s already being implemented in various ways in our country and elsewhere.

Tax Credits

For each dollar you give to an NGO performing a social or economic welfare function, you pay a dollar less to the government in tax.


“Opt-in” to give your tax dollars to a government agency which is doing a great job or a program that is particularly effective; “opt-out” to withhold your tax dollars from a wasteful agency or program that is doing more harm than good.

Competing Jurisdictions

Our country has multiple layers of government (federal, state, county, city, ward, district) and jurisdictions. Japanese taxpayers foster inter-governmental competition by choosing which layer of government and even which city receives their tax dollars.
