In the United Kingdom, one of the largest groups fighting against taxes is The TaxPayers’ Alliance. This British pressure group was founded in 2004. By 2008, the membership in the group, which campaigns for a low tax society, had swelled to 18 thousand registered supporters.
The mission of The TaxPayers’ Alliance is to “to reverse the perception that big government is necessary and irreversible; to explain the benefits of a low tax economy; to give taxpayers a voice in the corridors of power; to oppose EU tax harmonization.”
An alternative but related organization is The Other Taxpayers Alliance. Founded in 2008, The Other Taxpayers Alliance claims to represent 99.96 % of the population of the United Kingdom who do not belong to The TaxPayers’ Alliance. The stated objective of The Other Taxpayers Alliance is “fairer taxes, not lower taxes.”
A concern in the United States of America is related to the protection of each taxpayer identification number. For an individual tax payer, a taxpayer identification number can be either a Social Security number, for individuals who have the right to work in the Unites States, or an Individual Taxpayer Identification Number, in the case of aliens who may or may not be legally authorized to work in the United States.
For employers, sole proprietors, partnerships, non-profit organizations or associations, trusts, government agencies, corporations, or business entities, their taxpayer identification number is called an Employer Identification Number or Federal Employer Identification Number.
