One of the firmest rooted myths in today’s American society, is this notion of an income tax. It is one of those consensus reality illusions which has wormed its way into our culture in the 20th century. A thorough investigation into this matter, shows that there is much controversy as to whether or not this tax is even valid, when applied to most Americans.
It is often thought that the 16th amendment gives congress this power to tax labor. However, in 1916, the Supreme Court of the United States ruled “the Sixteenth Amendment does not purport to confer power to levy income taxes” in Brushaber vs. Union Pacific Railroad.
It is unfortunate that the majority of the population still does not understand the law, or the reason why the Constitution forbids direct un-apportioned taxes. If this understanding of the law were more wide-spread, we would see the end of many of these organizations which take of the fruits of our labors.
The graduated income tax and the institutions it supports are deeply immoral; it undermines the inalienable rights of the individual and gives the Federal Government virtually unlimited power to take our property and control our lives.
Unnecessary and Immoral

“In a Time of Universal Deceit, Telling the Truth is a Revolutionary Act.”
– George Orwell, author of 1984
Summary: The federal income tax is an unnecessary and immoral tax. I am in favor of abolishing the federal income tax and eventually the entire IRS. YOUR income from YOUR labor belongs to you and no one else, especially the government, has the right to steal it from you. Most Americans are unaware that while the government collects $1,200 billion in federal income taxes and collects roughly $3,000 billion in total taxes, the fact is that “only” $67 billion is necessary to run the executive, legislative, and judicial branches, which includes the FBI and federal court system. (1) (2) (3) When one compares this amount to the Banker Bailout of October 2008 for $800 billion and the Obama Stimulus Plan for $1,100 billion with interest, one wonders why not bailout the taxpayer in a plunging economy instead?

PLAINFIELD, N.H. — A Plainfield man who has been holed up in his house after being convicted of tax evasion said Friday that federal, state and local agents had come to kill him when they showed up near his property the day before.
Ed Brown and his wife, Elaine, were convicted in January of hiding nearly $2 million in income and not paying taxes on it because they insisted that federal income taxes are invalid. In April, they skipped their sentencing hearings and have been holed up in their house since. Continue reading Tax Protester Ed Brown Says Agents Came To Kill Him
The Judge decided to file the appeal for Ed and Elaine Brown, the same appeal that he denied several months ago. I wonder what kind of a stunt he is trying to pull now.
from Ed and Elaine’s MySpace Blog
We had a call come in this morning. Sorry that I have taken so long to get this to you all…
If you have been reading the blog here then you already know that the judge filed the appeal on Ed and Elaine’s behalf.
The sources that came in today tell us that the judge realizes that he misjudged the lawfulness of the IRS and the federal income tax. Which is why he, himself (the judge mind you!), filed the appeal for the Browns’ case. Continue reading The Latest from Ed and Elaine Brown
Tax evaders intended challenge in January
By Margot Sanger-Katz | Concord Monitor
Notice of Ed and Elaine Brown’s desire to appeal their tax evasion convictions has been sent along to the federal appeals court in Boston, even though the couple have not indicated that they want to appeal.
The Browns, who have been holed up in their fortified Plainfield home for several months, have said on radio broadcasts and internet postings that they are returning any government mail unopened and have described the court as a “fiction” unworthy of their attention. They have not sent any new documents to the court since their sentencing hearing April 24. Continue reading Judge files Browns’ appeal

I respectfully request that this statement, together with its six attachments be included in and made a part of my individual file at the Internal Revenue Service.
On April 15, 2002 I filed a Form 4868, “Application for Automatic Extension of Time to File U.S. Individual Income Tax Return,” for the year 2001.
This statement is submitted to you in lieu of a tax return (Form 1040) for the years 2001, 2002 and for all future years.
Based on the information contained and referred to in Attachments 1-6, I believe the federal income tax to be fraudulent in its origin and illegal in its operation.
Based on the information contained and referred to in Attachments 1-6, I believe the IRS lacks the legal authority to force employers to withhold the income tax from the paychecks of its employees or to force most Americans, including me, to file a tax return and to pay the income tax.
I love my country, but based on the information contained and referred to in Attachments 1-6, I despise my government, which is promoting anarchy, rebellion, and lawlessness, which I oppose. Continue reading Schulz’s Letter to the IRS

The powers of the Federal government of the united States of America are clearly enumerated in the Constitution. It is strictly forbidden to have a direct tax that is un-apportioned.
If the Federal government legitimately possessed the power to lay a direct un-apportioned tax, then there would be no need for a Constitution because the government could tax whomever they pleased, at whatever rate they demand and have powers that extend beyond its Constitutional limitations.
“The Congress shall have Power to Lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excise, to Pay the Debts and provide for the common Defense and general Welfare of the United States; but all Duties, Imposts and excises shall be uniform throughout the United States”
– The Constitution for the United States of America,
Article 1, Section 8, paragraph 1.
” No Capitation or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or Enumeration hereinbefore directed to be taken.”
– The Constitution for the United States of America,
Article 1, Section 9, paragraph 4. Continue reading BATF/IRS — Criminal Fraud

Since my recent article on the evils of the withholding tax, I have been inundated with e-mails by supporters of the ” FairTax,” including a request that I endorse “The Fair Tax Act of 2005” currently pending in the Congress. But like the calls for “fair trade” instead of “free trade,” the FairTax is a fraud because it is based on the fallacy that government theft (taxation) should be done in a “fair” manner instead of eliminated altogether.

While researching the Internal Revenue Service and their lack of authority to collect taxes on wages, I came accross an interesting discussion thread and message board in which non-taxpayers discuss their run-ins with the IRS.
Many of the people on this forum are quite well informed about matters of law; much can be learned from a review of these cases involving the IRS.
The forum can be accessed here:
Please send copies of this post, or at least share the url, with all of your friends and associates who are non-taxpayers.
In case some of you have not heard, earlier this month, an American Citizen employed by Mitsubishi Motors, who was charged with and indicted on Willful failure to file tax returns, and tax evasion, and was accused by a Grand Jury of violating 26 USC 7201 and 26 USC 7203, had all of the 6 charges against him dismissed WITH PREJUDICE, after the USG attorneys learned that as part of his defense, his attorney would be introducing the Paperwork Reduction Act and the IRS’s repeated failures to comply with that positive enacted law.
