In Mexico, Paintings Can Pay Your Taxes

Founded in 1957, the Mexican Pago en Especie program enables registered artists to submit art as their income taxes. Paintings, sculptures, and other graphic arts are accepted, but they must be approved by a committee to ensure their quality. The amount of art that an artist contributes is determined by how much art they sold during the year.
