What is the IRS statute that makes American citizens liable to pay federal income taxes?
Thanks in advance.
i have a counter question - in the absence of " federal income tax " how do you propose to fund and run the essential services of a civilized nation [ in particular - would the " alternative " be cheaper ] - if not is there any point to answering your question ?
...remind us that all people have inalienable rights—among them, the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. To secure these rights, the U.S. Constitution creates a government of the people to “establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the Common Defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity.”
The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.
