As well as the money we save, spend, and invest, the tax system we all engage with and the government policies that shape it have a huge impact on the world around us.
Our Church Action for Tax Justice campaign 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 neighbour, care for creation and creating the type of society we find in the teachings of Jesus and the prophets.

In February 2022 we launched our Good Measure Campaign, calling on the UK Government to introduce an initial one-off wealth tax on the country’s richest 1%. We believe it’s time we created a tax system that enabled the wealthiest in society to pay their fair share.
Each month we send out updates about our tax justice work as part of our regular JustMoney communications including campaign opportunities, reflections, and events. Sign up here.
