Considering engaging legal counsel to create a public escrow account into which property taxes may be deposited pending resolution of the "who is our rightful government" question.
Perhaps the armchair attorneys of Punaweb have suggestions, comments, questions?
I believe "our" message will be heard if enough revenue is at stake.
Forcing the County to make public statements to the effect that "we are the rightful government" would be icing on the cake.

State (income)? Federal? GE, TAT, GAS?
Nearly impossible to opt out of GET and FTR. Few people submit TAT now that TVRs have been shut down. Most people get State income tax withheld. Don't mess with the Feds.
Property taxes are conveniently (1) remit directly to County (2) due in less than two weeks.

David, What taxes are you proposing to pay into escrow? Property taxes provide a big chunk but what about:
GE, TAT, GAS?
Puna: Our roosters crow first

Can someone please figure out how to get the Feds involved sooner than later?

Guess I wasn’t articulate enough

Al Capone committed all kinds of crimes, but not paying taxes was what landed him in jail. It's the only crime the government really takes seriously.

Public Escrow Account - can the County get a loan with the escrow account as collateral? If they can it wouldn’t interfere with their operating expenses, it would only cost taxpayers additional interest in the long run.
Entrance blockade - might upset people sympathetic to the cause, if they have a bill to pay that day, and miss a deadline.
How about 10 MPH Under The Speed Limit Day? With an “Accelerate TMT” sign in your rear window. It would represent the sluggishness of State & County in handling the situation so far. An even more accurate portrayal of State & County would be to drive backwards, but moving violation tickets are a hassle.

Do you know how a Marine pilot can tell he's made a "gear-up" landing?
By the excessive manifold pressure it takes to taxi off the runway......

Wonder if the protesters might close down PTA .
Good place for an internment camp. I really hope it works out.

This is interesting ! Wonder if the protesters might close down PTA .
There are three separate units training at PTA this month: US Marines based at Kaneohe Marine Corps Base, US Army Combat Aviation Brigade from Wheeler Army Airfield in Wahiawa, and Hawai‘i Island Police Department (HPD).
The Marines will be flying Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Aug. 6 to Aug. 17 from Cooper Airstrip on the eastern portion of PTA. The Army aviation units will be conducting aerial gunnery Aug. 19 to Aug. 23, and HPD will be training their Special Response Team (SRT) and K9 teams on Aug. 6, Aug. 13, Aug. 23 and Aug. 30.
Finally, the Youth Challenge Academy cadets of Class 18 complete Phase I tomorrow on Aug. 6.PTA hosts the Phase I portion in cooperation with Hawai‘i National Guard Youth Challenge Academy, which consists of the first two weeks in the program.

Blocking the County is pretty obvious, but all their parking lots have multiple points of ingress/egress, so we need multiple groups to get them all.
I wonder how it plays if the groups are each different, protesting for different reasons, coincidentally all at the same time...
Another alternative would be to occupy the entire inner corridor, all nicely indoors, no need for pop-up tents etc. Allow any County employee to leave if they wish. Can they kick the public out of a public building where public business is conducted, or are we safer in the street...

I favor civil disobedience and a 14th Amendment complaint over a tax strike. If there is some way to cripple the county tax collecting machine by a sit-down strike or road blockage, you could make two points at once. I would gladly participate.
