There is NO law that requires you to pay the income tax. This is FACT.
Yes, I have been to court for this. Yes, I won. The law is on my side. The federal Judge dismissed all charges with prejudice, meaning I cannot be charged with evading income taxes again.
IRS Form 1040 violates the federal Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) and is therefore a legally invalid form. Under the Public Protection clause of the PRA, no person can be penalized for failing to file a 1040 if the IRS fails to fully comply with the PRA.
Section 3512 of the PRA, titled “Public Protection” reads as follows:
(a) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, no person shall be subject to any penalty for failing to comply with a collection of information that is subject to this subchapter [44 USCS § § 3501 et seq.] if--
(1) the collection of information does not display a valid control number assigned by the Director in accordance with this subchapter [44 USCS § § 3501 et seq.]; or
(2) the agency fails to inform the person who is to respond to the collection of information that such person is not required to respond to the collection of information unless it displays a valid control number.
(b) The protection provided by this section may be raised in the form of a complete defense, bar, or otherwise at any time during the agency administrative process or judicial action applicable thereto.
The IRS Individual Form 1040 has not and cannot comply with the requirements of the PRA because no existing statute authorizes the IRS to impose or collect the federal income tax from individuals. That lack of bona fide authority makes it impossible for IRS to avoid violating the PRA. IRS Form 1040 has not had a valid OMB (Office of Management and Budget) control number for more than 20 years.
The PRA statutes explicitly provide that a PRA challenge is a complete defense and can be raised in any administrative or judicial proceeding. Read the supreme court decision on the 16th Amendment and you will find that it enumerates no new rights to taxation.
Plunder does not lose its immorality as soon as it becomes legal. Personally, I cannot imagine a more alarming situation. When we as a society allow the IRS to rob an individual of the product of his effort we are-strictly speaking- no longer a society, but a mob held together by institutionalized gang violence.
The government is good at one thing. It knows how to break your legs, and then hand you a crutch and say, "See if it weren't for the government, you wouldn't be able to walk". And that is exactly what the IRS does to Americans with excessive taxation.
I refuse to play the game. I'm not benefiting in any fashion whatsoever from tax dollars spent. Its fake money, backed by nothing. We benefit from debt, not taxes.

It's an annual event, like Christmas or Halloween. The annual Throwing of the Tax Protesters into Jail. Needs a catchier name, though

The IRS is not who you think they are. IRS agents are neither trained nor
paid by the United States Government.
The IRS is also an agency/member of a 169 nation pact called the
International Criminal Police Organization, or INTERPOL, found at 22 USCA
263a. The memorandum of Understanding, (MOU), between the Secretary of
Treasury, AKA the corporate governor of "The Fund" and "The Bank"
(International Monetary Fund, and the International Bank for Reconstruction
and Development), indicated that the Attorney General and its associates are
soliciting and collecting information for foreign principals; the
international organizations, corporations, and associations, exemplified by
22 USCA 286f .

Why doesn't the government print the money? Someone please answer that question for me. It would make things a hell of a lot easier. The US wouldn't have a 9 trillion dollar debt and the economy would be much better then it is today.

If you report a different value than what is reported by your w2 that is filing a false and fraudulent tax return, the IRS will in fact prosecute you.
If you file the tax return as stated above you will goto jail. Just a forewarning. Maybe not immediately, heck it may take 10 years for them to realize your innacurate return. But they will come after you.

One tax protester featured in the film, Irwin Schiff of Las Vegas, is now serving his third prison sentence after being convicted of tax evasion crimes. Mr. Schiff introduced into his criminal case the notes of his psychiatrist, who wrote that Mr. Schiff was a successful tax shelter salesman until a con artist ripped him and his clients off. The psychiatrist concluded that Mr. Schiff became delusional, believing he alone could properly interpret the tax code, as a way to avoid acknowledging reality.
Erwin Schiff B.S.
On February 12th, 2004 long time Irwin Schiff follower and promoter Steve Swan was convicted on 18 criminal counts of willful income tax evasion and fraud in the District Court of New Hampshire Criminal Case 03-CR-36-01-B! Swan faces up to 54 years in prison and $4.5 million in fines and penalties. He will be sentenced May 19th, 2004.
Steve Swan of Auburn, New Hampshire started following and promoting Irwin Schiff's "Zero Income Tax Return" theories in 1996 after reading his book "The Federal Mafia How The Government Illegally Imposes and Unlawfully Collects Income Taxes". Sincerely believing what he read as promoted by Schiff in his books through Schiff's mis-interpretation and representation of Court case decisions, tax laws and the Constitution Mr. Swan started filing the "Zero Income Tax Return" created, promoted and claimed by Mr. Schiff to legally stop paying Federal income taxes!
On March 5th, 2003 Mr. Swan was indicted and later arrested on 18 counts of criminal willful tax evasion and fraud for following the "Zero Return" theory of Schiff. When Mr. Schiff was reached by the Union Leader Staff News for comment on one of his own dedicated followers and promoters being indicted and arrested for following and promoting his theories Schiff stated:
"If I told him to go rob a bank, would he do it? What is he, an idiot?"
Longtime tax protestor Irwin Schiff was sentenced in federal district court in Las Vegas to total of 163 months in prison—151 months for tax fraud and an additional 12 months for contempt of court—the Department of Justice and the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced today. In addition, Schiff was ordered to pay more than $4.2 million in restitution and to serve three years of supervised release..
In October 2005, Schiff was convicted of conspiring to defraud the United States, aiding and assisting in the preparation of false income tax returns, filing his own false tax returns, and evading the payment of millions of dollars in back taxes owed. This marks the third time Schiff has been convicted for committing federal tax offenses. Schiff previously has spent more than four years in jail for his tax crimes. Two associates of Schiff, Cynthia Neun and Lawrence Cohen, were also convicted of aiding and assisting other taxpayers in the filing of false tax returns. On February 3, 2006, Cohen was sentenced to 33 months in prison. Neun was sentenced yesterday to 68 months in prison and ordered to pay $1.1 million in restitution..
“Last October, a jury of his peers found Mr. Schiff guilty of serious tax crimes related not only to his own tax evasion, but also to his encouraging and enabling others to file false returns. The prison sentence handed down today reflects the seriousness of those crimes,” said Eileen J. O’Connor, Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Tax Division. “The Department of Justice is working vigorously to vindicate the interests of law- abiding Americans who file returns and pay the taxes the law requires.” .
“Mr. Schiff earned this sentence,” said IRS Commissioner Mark Everson. “For years he has preyed on others by holding out false hope that they need not pay their taxes.”.
According to the indictment and the evidence introduced at trial, beginning in 1995, Schiff aided thousands of taxpayers in the filing of false federal income tax returns with the IRS that reported zero taxable income in spite of the taxpayers earning reportable income. Schiff owned and operated Freedom Books, a business that sold books, tapes, and informational packages encouraging customers not to pay income tax. According to a government witness who testified at trial, between 1997 and 2002, Freedom Books sold more than $4.2 million of these products..
