Ok, here's a quick one for ya.
About 3 years ago the IRS sent me a letter charging me with a "frivolous filing" and wanted me to send them $5000.00 as a fine. If I remember
correctly, they also mentioned a prison sentence if I don't pay-up.
I replied within 10 days asking them to supply me with copies of this "frivolous filing" and any other documents that would back up their claim(signed
and sworn affidavits). I also asked that they sign their name to their documents when they communicate with me so I know who to hold liable for
damages in case they "injure" me.. I'm still waiting for a reply. Do you think they are so busy that, when I reply immediately to their employee code
identifier, it would take 3 years? They know who I am. They know where I live. 3 years and counting.
Personally, I don't care if you believe this or not. I know it happened. And so do those around me that I showed this stuff to.
Ding, ding, ding. This is a perfect example of why these sovereign anecdotes are worthless. Nothing you have done worked, you just think it worked
because the IRS hasn't gone after you yet. The IRS routinely sends out failure to file notices to people like you - but they don't have the time or
resources to enforce all of them. It can take 5+ years before they even get around to going after you if they do so at all. Of course they haven't
replied to you, the courts have ruled again and again the IRS doesn't have to respond to frivolous paperwork (and asking for signed and sworn
affidavits are just that). They only have to reply when you ask questions not based in debunked arguments.
You owe the taxes, and nothing you sent has caused them to somehow ignore you. Like I said, you could have sent pages of pictures of purple unicorns
and you will have the same effect. The only reason you MAY get away with it is because the amount is too small for them to do anything else about -
but with it only having been 3 years, you aren't even close to being out of the woods by luck yet.
Thats the problem with tax dodgers. They think the IRS is some all-powerful malevolent organization that slaps people down the minute they don't file,
when in reality its a huge behemoth of a bureaucracy that moves at a snails pace. Just because you file legal nonsense documents and dont receive a
reply within a few years doesn't mean a thing.
I can cite HUNDREDS of tax cases where it takes 8-15 YEARS before someone ends up with an IRS judgement. The more you owe, the longer it will take
because the tax court process is more involved. And each one of those cases involves a penalty for filing frivolous arguments. Why is it none of these
tactics worked for those people, but you think it will work for you?
