Some taxpayers have proposed a tax boycott. The rationale is that no public entity can function for long if taxpayers withhold funding. It is a serious step that involves civil disobedience with potential penalties. It should only be used as a last resort. We hope this step is not necessary.
Boycotts can be a highly effective tool for change against an entrenched bureaucracy. But they only succeed if a very large number of people participate and are committed to see it through. The likelihood of success is directly correlated with participation. 100% of fully committed participants have a 100% probability of success.
Prior to taking such a step, we will survey taxpayers to ensure a large number will participate and are committed to see it through to a successful outcome.
