Princeton Tax Day Penny Poll Postponed to April 16

pennypollThe Princeton-based Coalition for Peace Action will conduct its annual “Penny Poll” on federal spending priorities the day after this year’s deadline for filing federal tax returns, Wednesday, April 16, from 12 noon until 1 p.m. in front of the Palmer Square Post Office in downtown Princeton. The event had been previously scheduled for Tuesday, but is being postponed due to heavy rain predicted for today.

People approaching the post office will be handed 10 pennies and invited to distribute them among five tubes proportionate to how they would like to see their federal tax dollars spent. The five choices will include: military, environment, education, housing, and health care.

After distributing their pennies, participants will be handed a fact sheet describing how their federal tax dollars are actually spent. If their choices are dramatically different from those on the fact sheet, they will be urged to contact their elected representatives.

Participate in the penny poll and/or help conduct it by coming to the Palmer Square Post Office in Princeton between noon and 1 p.m. Wednesday. For further information, visit the Coalition’s website at www.peacecoalition.org or call the Coalition office at (609) 924-5022.
