Tax Protestors

Are you still paying income tax? Didn't you hear that income doesn't include wages, or that the 16th Amendment was never ratified, or that none of the states are actually in the U.S., or that income isn't defined in the Internal Revenue Code? Or didn't you know that if you simply placed all of your assets into a Pure Trust that nobody could ever touch them or collect taxes on them, including the government? Well, if you didn't hear any of this, don't worry because it ain't true. What is true is that some scam artists have made good money selling these bogus theories before themselves ending up in jail.

Fifth Circuit Affirms Simkanin Conviction Giving We-The-People Another Defeat.

    Driven by such geniuses as Bill Benson, Otto Skinner, Irwin Schiff, Thurston Bell, Lynne Meredith and others, a cottage industry of these well-educated and experienced professionals has been created to show you, the average taxpayer, how to fulfill your constitutional rights to peace and liberty and freedom from taxes. Especially the latter, and especially if you buy their books and tapes documenting their extensive research into all sorts of stuff, like how the 16th Amendment was never really ratified, or how everybody should really just ignore the courts and decide for themselves what the laws says (one advantage: you're always right). Did we fail to mention that none of these people have any formal legal education and many have convictions on a variety of crimes? Or that Lynne Meredith supposedly made over $6 million selling books and tapes on this stuff? (Ooops, Lynne got indicted and will probably die in prison, but that's us being nitpicky!)

    Great things, so long as the IRS and your creditors agree to litigate issues arising from these trusts before a Posse Comitatus in a mobile home trailer somewhere. Otherwise, a voodoo spell would be more effective protection.
