(see warning below) Here are a few videos about taxes accepted by the United States (the federal government). Some key points I heard are the following. Note read all the bullet points below. Be thorough.
- What I heard is that the income tax is voluntary. And you will be sent to jail if you don’t pay your taxes. How does this make sense? Well, the first sentence is general: income tax is voluntary. Thou is not mentioned. The second sentence is specific and an admittance. You will be sent to jail if you don’t pay your taxes. Meaning, if thou says one has taxes to pay, well then one must pay them. If thou completes a form, such as the 1040, stating ‘these are my taxes,’ then one has agreed to donate that money as taxes. By completing the form, one testifies against one self. Ingenious!
- Note, Weiss Paris point out that once someone completes the first 1040, then one must complete a 1040 in all subsequent years. The first 1040 is an election to be treated as a resident alien. So the income tax is voluntary unless one has filed a 1040 in any year. To make it voluntary again, to return to the original status, one must first revoke that election to be treated as a resident alien, and Weiss Paris (and likely SEDM) can help with that, for a fee. Or search this site for someone who also wrote their own affidavit stating the revocation. Still there are certain places to send these letters. There is a process. Pay someone to teach you, to guide you. It’s better than going to jail.
- See also many videos from Weiss Paris associates that discuss how the federal government considers the income tax as a gift. From 31 USC 321, read the first point below, then see how the second point classifies the federal income tax as a gift:
- (1) The Secretary of the Treasury may accept, hold, administer, and use gifts and bequests of property, both real and personal, for the purpose of aiding or facilitating the work of the Department of the Treasury. Gifts and bequests of money and the proceeds from sales of other property received as gifts or bequests shall be deposited in the Treasury in a separate fund and shall be disbursed on order of the Secretary of the Treasury. Property accepted under this paragraph, and the proceeds thereof, shall be used as nearly as possible in accordance with the terms of the gift or bequest.
- (2) For purposes of the Federal income, estate, and gift taxes, property accepted under paragraph (1) shall be considered as a gift or bequest to or for the use of the United States.
With enough study, the code references become easier to read and remember.
Warning & Notice: The issues discussed on this site are complex. Many people are sent to jail because they thought they knew what was going on. By reading this site, thou is indemnifying the author. Also, don’t rush things. A few more years of study surpasses a few years in prison for rushing things.
