U.S. Federal Income Tax Law

As I stated on my home page,  I have personal first hand knowledge that the tax laws do NOT say what most of you believe they say.

I have personal first hand knowledge that:

The requirement to pay an "income" tax on compensation for labor or service does not apply to most people living and working in any of the 50 States united.

Yeah, I know...   Unbelievable...    

However it is true and and it is verifiable.

I "know" the truth about the federal tax law because of my examination of the material evidence and my conclusions based upon logical proof.

Material evidence is hard factual data such as the written words of the tax law; audio or video recordings of IRS officers, agents, and employees; and transcriptions of the same. In other words, material evidence is that which is verifiable or verified as true.

Logical proof is the unassailable conclusion that results from using valid reasoning to establish the truth of the conclusion based upon premises that are themselves unarguable. Many of my premises are unarguable because such premises are simply the stating of the obvious about something. 

I will present material evidence by presenting the written words of law. It is then your duty to confirm that I have presented the written words as they are actually written. To that end, I have provided a page with links to government and academia websites where you can confirm the written words of law.

Stating the obvious about law in general:

Lord Camden was quoted by the Supreme Court in the 1886 case of Boyd v. U.S.(116 U.S. 616): "If it is law, it will be found in our books; if it is not to be found there it is not law."

Regarding this issue of who the tax law applies to, the Supreme Court has stated:

In the interpretation of statutes levying taxes it is the established rule not to extend their provisions, by implication, beyond the clear import of the language used, or to enlarge their operations so as to embrace matters not specifically pointed out. In case of doubt they are construed most strongly against the government, and in favor of the citizen." GOULD v. GOULD, 245 U.S. 151 (1917).

... [T]he well-settled rule ... the citizen is exempt from taxation unless the same is imposed by clear and unequivocal language, and that where the construction of a tax law is doubtful, the doubt is to be resolved in favor of those upon whom the tax is sought to be laid... SPRECKELS SUGAR REFINING CO. v. MCCLAIN, 192 U.S. 397 (1904)

You will be reminded of the above Supreme Court statements when particular sections of law are presented.

Albert Einstein of E = MC2 fame has been quoted as saying:

The hardest thing in the world to understand is the income tax.

Mr. Einstein did not have access to multi-Gigabyte, mult-Gigahertz computers connected to an internet.

I do, and I've spent long hours wading through the tax law. (Writing a website is not for those with short attention spans either.) My purpose is to help you find and digest the applicable tax law without having to spend as many hours searching for the truth that I have.

I must warn you that once you learn the truth about federal tax law you will not be able to un-learn it. There are other warnings and legal disclaimers you should know about that are presented on the next page.
