40 years ago today - Jan 21, 1983

A First Presidency letter: "We are now informed that there are members of the Church who also refuse to pay state income taxes." The letter provides for the denial of a temple recommend for any Mormon "who deliberately refuses to pay state or federal income taxes, or to comply with any final judgment rendered in income tax case." The letter also authorizes "Church court" action against those convicted of violating tax laws.
