For many years Robert Reich has pushed for higher taxes. But if he wants to pay more in taxes, there is nothing stopping him. In fact, he can write a check, right now, payable to the U.S. Treasury.

As a service to Reich, we have pasted the relevant information below:

Gifts to the U.S. Government

How do I make a contribution to the U.S. government?

Citizens who wish to make a general donation to the U.S. government may send contributions to a specific account called "Gifts to the United States."

This account was established in 1843 to accept gifts, such as bequests, from individuals wishing to express their patriotism to the United States. Money deposited into this account is for general use by the federal government and can be available for budget needs.

These contributions are considered an unconditional gift to the government. Financial gifts can be made by check or money order payable to the United States Treasury and mailed to the address below.

Gifts to the United States
U.S. Department of the Treasury
Funds Management Branch
P.O. Box 1328

Any tax-related questions regarding these contributions should be directed to the Internal Revenue Service at (800) 829-1040.
