Church Action for
Tax Justice

BRAND NEW : Good Measure Campaign

In February 2022 Church Action for Tax Justice launched it’s new Good Measure campaign, calling on the UK Government to introduce an initial one-off wealth tax on the country’s richest 1%. We are also asking for a review of the UK’s system of personal taxes, such that an ongoing, progressive net wealth tax may be introduced in the future.

We believe it’s time we created a tax system that enabled the wealthiest in society to pay their fair share. Join the campaign today.

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.
