UJP Activist: Corporations and the 1%: Pay your Taxes! Fund our Communities!


For most Massachusetts residents, April 17 is the deadline to file our income
taxes -- but for some corporations, Tax Day never comes.


Military contractors like General Electric are among the worst corporate tax
dodgers. They are paid by taxpayers to produce weapons, which are used for wars
we don’t need -- and they don't even pay taxes on their income.  General
Electric produces military aircraft engines in Massachusetts.

Despite billion-dollar profits, these corporations have managed to avoid
taxation altogether, with some even raking in hundreds of millions in tax
refunds. This rampant corporate tax dodging is bankrupting our communities,
forcing mass layoffs, slashing vital services and closing schools and community

Enough is enough. It's time for big businesses and the wealthiest amongst us to
pay their fair share, just like the rest of us do. On Tax Day -- Tuesday, April
17 -- Boston is taking to the streets to send a clear message to corporations
and the 1%: PAY YOUR TAXES!
