This post is not intended for you to stop paying taxes and this is not legal advice. I’m capable of reading and understanding words, so I decided to look at the US Tax Code. It’s very confusing and lengthy but you would be surprised of all the nonsense that are in these laws. Many people claim they are sovereign citizens across the United States, are these people paying income taxes? You hear about celebrities not paying taxes but you never hear about them going to jail or paying any money back to the IRS. So how are they getting away with fraud? Is it possible that it’s completely true; Paying Income Taxes is Completely Voluntary!? Here is a complete extensive article into the research behind the laws and some other info I found (look out for more articles in the future):
Joseph R. Banister, a former fraud expert and gun carrying special agent with the criminal investigations division of the Internal Revenue Service, has discovered that there is no law that requires you to file a income tax return or to pay income tax for working in America.
Just as the ” fact ” that the earth was once considered flat was exposed as a lie we have in our own time a lie of equal and greater size. Just as fear and ignorance once stated that the earth was flat so today our nation is ruled by fear and ignorance in regard to the so-called ” income tax.” The facts are these :
There is no law which requires you to file an income tax return for working in America.
There is no law which requires you to pay income tax for working in America.
You volunteer when you sign a income tax return.
You volunteer when you pay income tax.
You sign away your 5th Amendment rights against self-incrimination when you sign a tax return.
The money which you pay as your ” income tax ” goes to a private banking cartel.
The fact is that our nation is ruled by a private banking cartel, the Federal Reserve System, which, having taken control of our country and its sovereign power of making money, itself makes money out of thin air and loans it to our nation. It is the inherent breakdown of this Federal Reserve System which leads to the progressive rise in prices, a fraudulent and ever rising ” national debt,” the loss of the value and purchasing power of the dollar, the need for 2 parents to work to achieve a adequate income, and many other symptoms of a decaying economy. The ” income tax ” is the payment demanded by this private banking cartel for the ” service ” ( the loaning of the money which they create ) which they perform. Our representatives, including Senator Boxer, have been bought and paid for by that banking cartel which has conquered our nation and takes its tribute from the citizens who are essentially plantation slaves as they work for a private bank and its stockholders ( mostly foreign ) and not the nation.
I ask you to join me in the battle to stop the total and complete corruption of the IRS and the Federal Reserve System. We must save our workers, our nation, and our future generations from this slavery.

Report submitted to President Ronald Reagan in 1984
“There is no method of steering clear of this inconvenience, but by authorizing the national government to raise its own revenues in its own way. Imposts, excises, and, in general, all duties upon articles of consumption, may be compared to a fluid, which will, in time, find its level with the means of paying them. The amount to be contributed by each citizen will in a degree be at his own option, and can be regulated by an attention to his resources. The rich may be extravagant, the poor can be frugal; and private oppression may always be avoided by a judicious selection of objects proper for such impositions. If inequalities should arise in some States from duties on particular objects, these will, in all probability, be counterbalanced by proportional inequalities in other States, from the duties on other objects. In the course of time and things, an equilibrium, as far as it is attainable in so complicated a subject, will be established everywhere.

“In the general course of human nature, a power over a man’s subsistence amounts to a power over his will.”

“There is no law requiring a person to apply for a Social Security number, and there is no section of title 18, United States Code, making it a crime to not have a social security number.”
“[W]e must not let our rulers load us with perpetual debt. We must make our election between economy and liberty or profusion and servitude. If we run into such debt, as that we must be taxed in our meat and in our drink, in our necessaries and our comforts, in our labors and our amusements, for our calling and our creeds…we [will] have no time to think, no means of calling our miss-managers to account but be glad to obtain subsistence by hiring ourselves to rivet their chains on the necks of our fellow-sufferers. And this is the tendency of all human governments. A departure from principle in one instance becomes a precedent till the bulk of society is reduced to be mere automatons of misery. And the foreshores of this frightful team is public debt. Taxation follows that, and in its train wretchedness and oppression.”
“The remaining revenue on the consumption of foreign articles is paid chiefly by those who can afford to add foreign luxuries to domestic comforts, being collected on our seaboard and frontiers only, and incorporated with the transactions of our mercantile citizens, it may be the pleasure and the pride of an American to ask, What farmer, what mechanic, what laborer ever sees a taxgatherer of the United States?”

“We ought to have realized that the income tax is utterly incompatible with liberty. It is actually a form of slavery….

“Eight decades of amendments and accretions to the Code have produced a virtually impenetrable maze.

“It is also a known fact that the Internal Revenue Code is a very easily misunderstood area of law, even misunderstood by trained professionals. Judges and lawyers admittedly do not know the tax laws.”
“Tax Policy Lecture” before Southern Methodist University, April 14, 1993
“‘Do you have to file a tax return and pay taxes?’
‘The U. S. income tax system is built on the idea of ‘voluntary compliance.’ This means that it is left to the taxpayer to keep the necessary records, file a return on time, pay any required taxes, and meet any other requirements of the tax law. The system is built on trust in the citizens to know their responsibilities and to do what needs to be done. Taxpayers voluntarily follow the steps the tax system lays out. Failure to do so can result in penalties.
“Two aspects of the Federal Income Tax system – voluntary compliance with the law and self-assessment of tax – make it important for you to understand your rights and responsibilities as a taxpayer. ‘Voluntary compliance’ places on the taxpayer the responsibility for filing an income tax return. You must decide whether the law requires you to file a return. If it does, you must file your return by the date it is due. IRS Publication 21.”

An excise is considered an indirect tax, meaning that the producer or seller who pays the tax to the government is expected to try to recover or shift the tax by raising the price paid by the buyer. Excises are typically imposed in addition to another indirect tax such as a sales tax or value added tax (VAT). In common terminology (but not necessarily in law), an excise is distinguished from a sales tax or VAT in three ways: (i) an excise only applies to these products in the United States:

(C) an exemption for each individual with respect to whom, on the basis of facts existing at the beginning of such day, there may reasonably be expected to be allowable an exemption under section 151 (c) for the taxable year under subtitle A in respect of which amounts deducted and withheld under this chapter in the calendar year in which such day falls are allowed as a credit;
(D) any allowance to which he is entitled under subsection (m), but only if his spouse does not have in effect a withholding exemption certificate claiming such allowance; and
(E) a standard deduction allowance which shall be an amount equal to one exemption (or more than one exemption if so prescribed by the Secretary) unless
(i) he is married (as determined under section 7703) and his spouse is an employee receiving wages subject to withholding or

Interesting Information from the IRS Website
Exemption from Withholding:
If an employee qualifies, Form W-4 is also used by the employee to tell you not to deduct any Federal income tax from his or her wages. To qualify for this exempt status, the employee must have had no tax liability for the previous year and must expect to have no tax liability for the current year. However, if the employee can be claimed as a dependent on a parent’s or another person’s tax return, additional limitations may apply. See the instructions for Form W-4 (PDF). A Form W-4 claiming exemption from withholding is valid for only one calendar year. To continue to be exempt from withholding in the next year, an employee must give you a new Form W-4 claiming exempt status by February 15 of that year. If the employee does not give you a new Form W-4, withhold tax as if he or she is single, with no withholding allowances. However, if you have an earlier Form W-4 (not claiming exempt status) for this employee that is valid, withhold as you did before.
Invalid Form W-4:
Any unauthorized change or addition to Form W-4 makes it invalid. This includes taking out any language by which the employee certifies that the form is correct, material defacing of the form, or any writing on the form other than the entries requested. A Form W-4 is also invalid if, by the date an employee gives it to you, he or she indicates in any way that it is false. When you get an invalid Form W-4, do not use it to determine Federal income tax withholding. Tell the employee that it is invalid and ask for another one. If the employee does not give you a valid one, withhold taxes as if the employee was single and claiming no withholding allowances. However, if you have an earlier Form W-4 for this employee that is valid, withhold as you did before.
Record Keeping Requirements:
After the employee completes and signs the Form W-4, you must keep it in your records. This form serves as verification that you are withholding federal income tax according to the employee’s instructions and needs to be available for inspection should the IRS ever request it. Form W-4 is still subject to review. Employers may be directed (in a written notice or in future published guidance) to send certain Forms W-4 to the IRS. The employer must be able to supply a hardcopy of an electronic Form W-4.
The IRS uses information reported on Forms W-2, Wage and Tax Statement, to identify employees with withholding compliance problems. In some cases, where a serious under-withholding problem is found to exist for a particular employee, the IRS may issue a notice (commonly referred to as a “lock-in-letter”) to you specifying the withholding rate (marital status) and maximum number of withholding allowances permitted for a specific employee for purposes of calculating the required withholding. The IRS will provide the employee with an opportunity to dispute the determination before you adjust withholding based on the lock-in letter.
The IRS will send a letter to the employee explaining that the IRS will require you to start withholding additional income tax unless the employee contacts the IRS to explain why the employee should not have withholding increased. A toll-free number and address for the unit handling this program will be provided in the letter. As an additional safeguard, you will also receive a notice to provide to the employee.
After the lock-in letter takes effect, you must disregard any Form W-4 that results in less tax withheld, until the IRS notifies you otherwise. However, you must honor any Form W-4 that results in more income tax withheld than at the withholding rate (marital status) and withholding allowances specified in the lock-in letter. Employers who use electronic Form W-4 systems must make sure the employee can not override the lock-in letter to decrease withholding via an electronic Form W-4 system. Lock-in letter provisions also apply to employees rehired within 12 months from the date of the notice.
After the lock-in letter takes effect, if the employee wants to claim complete exemption from withholding or claim a withholding rate, withholding allowances, and additional amount that results in less income tax withheld than the lock-in letter, the employee must contact the IRS. A toll-free number and address for the unit handling this program will be provided in the lock-in letter.
