Re: The Epic Fail of Squatloosian Troll

Yeah, section 1341. I haven't studied the subject in depth, but the theory did not work in McKinney v. United States , 574 F.2d 1240 (5th Cir. 1978), cert. denied , 439 U.S. 1072 (1979), or in Wood v. United States , 863 F.2d 417 (5th Cir. 1989). EDIT: Added denial of cert. on McKinney. Both 5th ci...

He has not explained why a union official who embezzles over $700,000 from a union and an insurance company must, under the Internal Revenue Code, include the receipt of the money as his income for Federal income tax purposes, even though he does not really own the money, even if he has to return t...

Re: Tax Code Is Gibberish So I Don't Owe

[It should can be pointed out that Circular 230 prohibits tax preparers from basing fees for an original return on the amount of refund; it's allowed for amended returns, appeals, and court. Circular 230 does not appear to allow contingent fees for amended returns, except when such returns are subj...

Re: Tax Code Is Gibberish So I Don't Owe

I have known a few tax lawyers - many of them formerly IRS lawyers - who based their fees on a simple formula: A fixed percentage of the difference between what the IRS originally demanded and what the IRS eventually got from their clients. It should can be pointed out that Circular 230 prohibits t...

Re: "practical lawful dissent" fmotl advisory group

i've seen cases where people tried to redact information from PDFs by adding black boxes, but the hidden text was still searchable, and the length of the black box provided clues. I've seen redactions from Microsoft and from the IRS done by changing the background color to the text color. However, ...

Re: Sov-Cit Victory Currencies defined, Quatloos Code

It didn't help that Senator Strom Thurmond, of South Carolina, managed to get an amendment to a highway appropriation bull that would deny federal funds to any state that posted metric information on any interstate highway. Interesting. As early as 1998, "mile" markers on I-19 in Arizona ...
