Repealing the 16th amendment isn’t going to be an easy task, but we know with your help we will be able to achieve our goal. For far too long, the IRS has been used to abuse the American people, reaching straight into our pockets before we even receive the money that we have worked hard to earn.

Recent revelations of corruption and politicization inside the IRS further the argument for the need to seriously reform the tax code. The government must not be able to use one of its bureaucracies to target, punish, and abuse concerned Americans for expressing their first amendment rights.

On April 15, 2014, several hundred of our Local Coordinators hosted house parties across the country to play this short film. We have held house parties since the beginning of the movement as a way to reach out to our friends, neighbors, family, and community to inform them of important items. The effort to repeal the 16th amendment is going to take a majority of Americans. Please share these resources with your friends and encourage them to get involved as well.

What is the Repeal 16 Coalition?

The Coalition to Repeal the 16th Amendment, Repeal 16, is a national coalition of activists and organizations taking action to repeal the 16th Amendment, and end our corrupting tax system and the oppressive IRS.

The Coalition to Repeal the 16th Amendment (Repeal 16) is comprised of a broad range of individuals and organizations including the Tea Party Patriots, Americans For Fair Taxation, Americans for Limited Government, Competitive Governance Action and Free Market America.

The coalition does not advance a specific tax policy structure to replace the current tax code (e.g. FairTax vs. flat tax). It simply seeks to limit Congressional power to impose taxes on production (income, payroll, dividends, estates, etc.)
