Crack Down on Tax Cheats.

Please support this 38 Degree campaign against tax cheats (in fact all of 38 Degree campaigns are worthy of support)
Thousands of us have decided what 38 Degrees should do as the government plans cuts. Together we're going to push them to crack down on the billions we lose from tax dodgers every year.

Right now Chancellor George Osborne is deciding what he'll cut. We're all going to be hit by the VAT rise in January and less money for services like schools, hospitals and the police. [1] Every year a selfish few rip us off by dodging billions in tax. It's a big problem - the government says every year we lose at least £42 billion in "uncollected" tax. [2] The government needs to stand up to tax cheats and make sure everybody, including billionaires, bankers and media moguls, pays their fair share.

So here's the plan. This week we're launching our "Crack Down on Tax Dodgers" petition to pile the pressure on Osborne. Next week, together we'll start work on hard hitting adverts to publicly shame the Government into taking real action. [3] Then as our ads are hitting the media we'll take the campaign to Parliament - so everywhere Osborne goes he'll be asked "what are you doing to stop tax dodgers?"

But time's tight - the first thing we need to do is prove this is a big issue amongst ordinary taxpayers. Help make this petition massive so the government knows how many of us want them to "Crack Down on Tax Dodgers". Sign the petition now:
