"...the requirement to pay [excise] taxes involves the exercise of privilege."
United States Supreme Court, Flint vs. Stone Tracy Co. 220 U.S. 107 (1911)
There’s seems to be a couple of misunderstandings in the mind of some people concerning Social Security. First off it’s a tax not a
retirement plan. as many Americans will soon find out. Even the Social Security Administration admits it’s a tax on their website. In light of the
above Supreme Court decision, one might wonder what is the privilege they are exercising in order to be taxed. It’s in the tax statutes. The
taxing statute imposing S.S. taxes
Subsec. (g)(1)(C)(iii). Pub. L. 105-277, Sec. 4005(b)(4), inserted before period at end ''and the functions of the Social Security Administration in
connection with the withholding of taxes from benefits, as described in section 407© of this title, pursuant to requests by persons entitled to such
benefits or such persons' representative payee''. "SEC. 1532 DEFINITIONS.
As used in this subchapter.
(A) Employer.-- The term "employer’ means any carrier (as defined in subsection (h) of this section, and any company which is directly or
indirectly owned or controlled by one or more carriers or under common control therewith, and which operates any equipment of facility ( except
trucking service, casual service, and the casual operation of equipment or facilities) in the connection with transportation or passengers or property
by railroad . .
So the tax being imposed under the guise of Social Security retirement is an excise tax for the benefit of working for the Railroad. A
person paying into Social Security has already received their benefits, remember there is no contract. This is also the reason for tax on tips, the
tips are ones received on railroad cars that serve food or drinks. Doubt it? Goggle Railroad Retirement Act “tax on tips”. Truth is stranger than
fiction. BTW Ron Paul wants to repeal the tax on tips, why not instead point out that it does not apply to those in the private sector, besides the
tip is a gift, gifts are not taxable under a certain amount.
A real brief history of Social Security might be in order. Congress first tried a retirement plan (tax) on railroad workers in the fifty
states, however the Supreme Court struck it down see Railroad Retirement Board vs. Alton Railroad Co.- 1935.
Faced with this ruling, Congress moved the plan (tax) to the insular possessions, Guam, Porto Rico, Cayman Islands, and D.C. See tax code
26 USC 3121.
Had enough fraud? Well hold on . Anyone who reaches a certain age, has a letter A added to his or her number. They are auxiliary beneficiaries. The
real beneficiary is Congress.
26 CFR Sec. 301.7701-11 Social security number.
For purposes of this chapter, the term social security number means
the taxpayer identifying number of an individual or estate which is
assigned pursuant to section 6011(b) or corresponding provisions of
prior law, or pursuant to section 6109, and in which nine digits are
separated by hyphens as follows: 000-00-0000. Such term does not include
a number with a letter as a suffix which is used to identify an
auxiliary beneficiary under the social security program. The terms
``account number'' and ``social security number'' refer to the same

Some Americans are waking up, and have had with the fraud. There is no money set aside, and the tax doesn't apply. A nice list of these
Americans, are receiving full refunds,(everything) liens and levies removed, some securing refunds for the last three years. Visit
