Church Action for
Tax Justice

Church Action for Tax Justice stands for a fairer, greener tax system where taxes are set to reflect the Common Good, and individuals and corporations pay their fair share.

We believe that tax should not be seen as a burden; it’s a way of showing love for our neighbour and creating the type of just society which we find in the teachings of Jesus and the prophets.

In the context of increasing global inequality and unprecedented environmental challenges, the tax system can play a vital role in building more just and sustainable societies, and in fostering good relations between human beings.
