Tax Day Penny Poll at Arcata Post Office
On Monday, April 18, from 9:30AM to 5:00PM, in front of the Arcata post office, citizens will be holding their annual Tax Day Penny Poll.
Those wishing to participate will be given ten pennies to distribute among containers labeled with government programs (e.g. health, education, military, etc.) indicating what their choices would be for distribution of their tax dollars. Information will be provided about the current breakdown of government discretionary spending and the 51% of tax dollars that currently go to the military.
Results of the Penny Poll will be made available the following day.
