If you've ever wished you could designate your tax dollars to pay for the things you care about most, then Taxes for Democracy is for you.
Siblings Steph and Alex Hay co-founded Taxes for Democracy in 2019 as a not-for-profit dedicated to engaging citizens and their Congresspeople in conversations about tax spending. Kit Oliynyk designed this site.
We believe America's best days are ahead of us, if only we don't let apathy or dependency take hold.

YOUR TAX WISHLIST
We include every Tax Wishlist when surfacing the results in the "Compare" section of TaxesForDemocracy.org, so you and others can analyze results and trends in how people want their tax dollars spent.
Each Tax Wishlist is tied to an anonymous user ID, but does not include any personally identifiable information.
TWEETING YOUR TAX WISHLIST
If you provide your mailing address, we will store it so we can research District-specific tax preferences. We do this only at an aggregate level to provide more granular insights and analytics. We will never share your individual mailing address.
Similarly, we will NOT use your mailing address for any purpose except to locate which Congressional District you're in so we can identify your specific Congresspeople.
We also don't use your Twitter information for any reason except to facilitate the interaction with your Congresspeople; we don't follow-up or interfere with any ongoing interactions afterward.
Finally, if you provided us your mailing address and want us to delete it, email firstname.lastname@example.org anytime.
