Federal Income Taxes

Is there a federal tax on all that comes in? Or is there a tax on federal income? Note that income is not all that comes in. Then what is ‘income’? Some say it is gains from the exercise of a federal privilege, and therefore taxable. Earnings from working for a local company are not income if that company is not receiving payment from the federal government. Of course there is more to it than this. Potentially all thy earnings are taxable if one is a citizen of the United States, which means one is from Puerto Rico or another territory or possession. I love the people of Puerto Rico. I still must ask, is thou a Puerto Rican?

“Enjoying the “Title of Nobility” as “Person” and/or “subject” is a privilege granted from government and makes you liable and subject to to’ government “Code of Conduct” for “subjects”. The lawyers presume that everyone is enjoying the benefit of corporate fiction subject” (14th Amendment, “slave on government plantation”) status and therefore owes a debt back to government (excise Tax) in return for the privilege/Benefit being enjoyed.” [From the It Ain’t Me – Criminal]

See also: Treasury Decision 2313, based on SCOTUS case Brushaber v Union Pacific Railroad. TD 2313 refers to American national Frank Brushaber as an example of a “nonresident alien” for income tax purposes. If Brushaber was a nonresident alien, why can’t ANY American be one?

“Under the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States in the case of Brushaber v. Union Pacific Railway [sic] Co., decided January 24, 1916, it is hereby held that income accruing to nonresident aliens in the form of interest from the bonds and dividends on the stock of domestic [editor’s note: meaning federal territory] corporations is subject to the income tax imposed by the act of October 3, 1913.” [See more]

A SSN is the property of SSA (thus of Rome, maybe). The number is assigned to ur legal person spelled in all caps (FIRST M LAST). Treasury Regs say u can change the status of the number to “nonresident alien” (i.e. NOT a subject & NOT owned) in IRS records (i.e. u can opt out).

The regulation that says ANYONE may change the status of his or her SSN to “nonresident alien” by notifying IRS is at 26 CFR Section 301.6109-1 (g)(1)(i). They buried this provision of law where they hoped no one would ever find it, cuz they don’t want u to know u can OPT OUT!

(g) Special rules for taxpayer identifying numbers issued to foreign persons

(1) General rule

(i) Social security number. A social security number is generally identified in the records and database of the Internal Revenue Service as a number belonging to a U.S. citizen or resident alien individual. A person may establish a different status for the number by providing proof of foreign status with the Internal Revenue Service under such procedures as the Internal Revenue Service shall prescribe, including the use of a form as the Internal Revenue Service may specify. Upon accepting an individual as a nonresident alien individual, the Internal Revenue Service will assign this status to the individual’s social security number. [Editor’s note: SEDM says even the word ‘individual’ is a problem. They may say that one needs to be just a ‘nonresident alien’ and they don’t use the SS number.]

Most people would be AMAZED how close this is to accurately representing how u lawfully opt out. U don’t have to argue. It’s like a chess match: u simply make ur moves! Once ur way to victory is established, IRS can only “resign” or try to delay the inevitable, as in chess.


Since federal courts admit no one is EVER required to use a 1040 “U.S. Individual” income tax form as their tax return, the use of the 1040 form is indisputably VOLUNTARY. Use of 1040 form is itself a voluntary claim of federally privileged “U.S. Person” tax income tax status.

Before 1937, 1040 was the only tax return form for individuals, called “Individual Income Tax Return”. U can see these old 1040 forms at In 1937 they introduced a separate form for nonresident aliens. From then on, the mere use of 1040= claim of privilege.

From 1937-1943 the 1040 was called “United States Individual income tax return”. Since 1944 it’s been “U.S. Individual”. Since the term “U.S. Individual” is not defined in the Code or Regulations, who knows what that term actually means? Only that ur NOT a nonresident alien.

From 1920 to 1936, the 1040 had a question on it: “Are you a citizen or resident of the United States”? This was an important jurisdictional question. “United States” was not defined in IRC until 1935, & even then only in its geographical sense (federal territories & D.C.)

There was no statutory definition of the term “United States” for citizenship purposes until January 13, 1941, according to the U.S. Department of Foreign Affairs Manual. Treasury Regulations at 26 CFR 1.1-1(c) specify “who is a citizen”:

This definition of citizen is a bit vague but is far more clear at 26 CFR 31.3121(e)(1): The term “citizen of the United States” includes a citizen of the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands, and, effective January 1, 1961, a citizen of Guam or American Samoa.”

The legal encyclopedia American Jurisprudence in Section 3A Am Jur 2d Sec. 2689 explains: “A person is born subject to the jurisdiction of the (U.S.), for purposes of acquiring citizenship at birth, If his or her birth occurs in TERRITORY over which the United States is sovereign

Blacks law dictionary, 6th Edition defines the term “territory”: “A part of a country separated from the rest, & subject to a particular jurisdiction… A portion of the United States NOT within the limits of any state, which has not yet been admitted as a state of the union.

Still think being an American automatically makes you a “citizen of the United States”? See how this term is used to claim you are effectively federal property? Do you see now why federal government is so often NOT restricted by the Constitution in dealing with Americans?

From: Are you a U.S. Citizen by merle

“There is definitely a dual system between the states united under the Constitution and the United States that is analogous to a mini-United Nations and headquartered in D.C. The U.S. income tax system is a voluntary system and it is voluntary because it is predicated upon “citizenship” .

“The revenue laws are a code or system in regulation of tax assessment and collection. They relate to taxpayers and not to non taxpayers. The latter are without their scope. No procedure is prescribed for non-taxpayers and no attempt is made to annul any of their rights and remedies in due course of law. With them Congress does not assume to deal, and they are neither the subject nor the object of the revenue laws.” Stewart v. Chinese Chamber of Commerce, 168 F.2d 709, 712.

Again, you can see the dual system. U.S. citizens residing in the ‘State of Michigan’ or ‘State of Iowa’ are ‘taxpayers’. This is why in an interview Harry Reid stated that he did not understand the phraseology when talking about the voluntary income tax system and was then asked if he meant that “taxpayers” don’t have to pay their income taxes. To most ignorant people Harry Reid looked like a blubbering idiot when he did not come right out and specifically let the cat out of the bag. The Supreme Court has opined that the 16th Amendment added no new taxing powers, but I contend that the Fourteenth Amendment did add new taxing powers for those people within the states and wishing to be “subject to the jurisdiction thereof” so they can receive U.S. socialized security or food stamps or “free?” State education for their children.” [From Are you a U.S. Citizen by merle]

The True History of the Income Tax and IRS —- Again

By Anna Von Reitz

The first income tax was called “Peter’s Pence” and it was collected along with a Confession of Sins on April 15 every year in both England an France beginning in the early 1100’s as an extra mandatory “offering” to pay for the cost of the Crusades.

Sound familiar?  A tax on income….. a confession (filing)….due on April 15….to support the cost of a war?

Fast forward to the “American Civil War” — a tax on income fails the constitutional test, but is imposed on all “territorial citizens”, that is, federal civilian and military employees and those born in the “territories and possessions” of the United States.

American state nationals are protected under the provisions of the Constitution(s) but federal citizens are not. Federal citizens can be taxed to the moon and back, and imposed upon and even killed by the whim of Congress acting as a plenary oligarchy operating a foreign municipal city state government.

Look at Article I, Section 8, Clause 17 (see below) and read Justice Harlan’s dissenting opinion in Downes v. Bidwell and the rest of the Insular Tariff cases.  You will see what has gone on here, how and why.  You won’t like it a bit, but you will catch on.

Article 1, Section 8, Clause 17
To exercise exclusive Legislation in all Cases whatsoever, over such District (not exceeding ten Miles square) as may, by Cession of Particular States, and the Acceptance of Congress, become the Seat of the Government of the United States, and to exercise like Authority over all Places purchased by the Consent of the Legislature of the State in which the Same shall be, for the Erection of Forts, Magazines, Arsenals, dock-Yards, and other needful Buildings;–

The first modern “Internal Revenue Service”—then as now—was operated entirely in international jurisdiction by privateers running first out of Barbados and later removed to Puerto Rico.  The personnel responsible for collecting the tax are Merchant Marine Warrant Officers called “Withholding Agents”. The personnel responsible for oversight of all these Merchant Mariners and federal corporation operators are Internal Revenue Agents.

Abraham Lincoln fundraised for the war effort by selling “1040 Bonds”— so called because these bonds mature in either 10 or 40 years.  The revenue realized by the sale is used to pay off war debt.

Today, the funds from the yearly collection of “1040 Forms” results in the issuance of more bonds based on the labor and assets of the people, but with the federal government and its “federated state” franchises being the beneficiaries.

Up to World War II, most Americans were not subject to the “federal income tax” at all—- only:

  1. federal civilian employees
  2. military personnel
  3. African Americans
  4. people born in Puerto Rico, Guam, etc.,
  5. federal welfare recipients and federal dependents (wards of state such as political asylum seekers), and
  6. actual corporations that held their charters under United States auspices…

…were required to file as a condition of their employment or else their receipt of “benefits” from the Public Charitable Trust set up for the relief of poor black plantation slaves who were displaced by the Civil War or the “privilege” of a public charter to do “indemnified” business.

Then, as we entered WWII, Congress passed The Victory Tax—- allowing noncitizens, that is, people who were not federal employees, not political asylum seekers, not African American, etc., to “voluntarily” pay the federal income tax as a patriotic gesture in support of the war effort.

See cartoon video encouraging people to pay the Victory Tax.

Millions of patriotic American state nationals signed up and gave an average of two bucks extra a month to the government via direct contribution at their workplace, collected by their employers.

There was no specific end date attached to The Victory Tax, because there was no specific known date for the end of the war, so the tax was supposed to end with the “end of hostilities”—meaning in real life, it should have no longer been collected from American state nationals as of August, 1945.

Instead, the Federales kept right on collecting—and enforcing the collection—of federal income taxes from people who were never federal citizens and who never knowingly or voluntarily received any charter to operate as federal corporations, and who should have been released from any obligation upon the Japanese surrender.

This is why generations of Internal Revenue Commissioners and other IRS higher-up employees have stood in front of the TV cameras and described this as a “voluntary tax”.

You were misinformed about the nature of the tax and you were misinformed and told that it applied to you, when in fact it never did.

The word “income” itself by definition is a corporate accrual.  Your wages, salaries, tips, and other earnings are private property.

So what’s going on here?

A gigantic, vicious, self-interested  fraud.

The fact is that by far the vast majority of Americans are naturally exempt from the federal income tax, and if you are, you can “revoke your election to pay“.

If you are an average American state national who is self-employed or employed in the private sector, you never really owed the federal income tax in the first place— that is, if you were born on the land of one of the sovereign states and are not voluntarily choosing to operate as a federal corporation named after YOUR NAME, not a federal employee (United States Citizen), not a federal dependent (citizen of the United States), not African American, not born in Puerto Rico, etc. — you are paying a tax you don’t owe, one that never applied to you, and one that can’t be forced upon you if you correctly object.

As you can see, there are people and there are organizations (actual corporations) that do owe the federal income tax, but there are also millions upon millions of people and organizations who do not and who never did owe any federal income tax who are being coerced and extorted out of large portions of the value of their labor under false pretenses and criminally self-interested legal presumptions.

The last time I looked, the “revocation” clause was located at Section 6013 of the Internal Revenue Code, Title 26.   It gets moved around a bit, thanks to shuffling of pages and sections, but it remains as it has to remain as remedy for the crime being perpetuated against the people of this country.

You are free to send Notice to the Commissioner(s) of Revenue declaring your decision to “revoke my election to pay federal income taxes” at any time, and once you do this, you can NEVER pay federal income taxes again—by law.

This will, I know, be a great disappointment to many…..

However, there are a couple of caveats yet to be observed.

Your letter of revocation must be proven to be received, so you have to  keep your mailing receipt and a copy of your letter and a return receipt, if at all possible, to prove that you sent your correspondence and that it was received by the (now three) IRS, Internal Revenue Service, and INTERNAL REVENUE SERVICE Commissioners.

You have to remember that the federal fiscal year ends June 30 and begins July 1 of each year and that “tax years” lag behind normal calendar years.  Thus, if you wish to stop paying taxes effective with the federal tax year of 2012, you would make your revocation of election effective July 1, 2011—the prior year.

And you should be at some pains to explain that you “made a mistake” and that you were never actually a volunteer Warrant Officer in the Merchant Marine Service and were confused about what a “Withholding Agent” was when you signed your prior 1040 forms.

Now that you know, you won’t be confused again….

The submission of a 1040, 1065, or any other “federal” tax form creates the presumption that you are either a “United States Citizen” (employee) or “citizen of the United States” (slave) or operator of a federal corporation (YOUR NAME) or an actual business corporation with a federal charter.  This presumption can be rebutted with a “revocation of election to pay” or simply never filing any federal tax forms to begin with and standing your ground as a private American state national—so long as you are not naturally a member of one of those groups who are actually required to pay federal income taxes.

If you have already made the mistake of filing paperwork as a “Withholding Agent”, the act of doing so creates a “novation contract” which is a repetition of performance contract—another legal presumption that you are in fact a volunteer Warrant Officer in the Merchant Marines and that you will be filing tax forms again the next year.

This is what gives rise to “Failure to File” charges.

However, now that you have admitted your mistake and that you know what a Withholding Agent is—and know that you are not a Withholding Agent—it would be illegal inducement to perjure yourself to require you to file anything saying that you were voluntarily acting in that capacity, wouldn’t it?

Yes, indeed.  It would.

One of the most curious facts is that if you file a 1040 or other form and you make any mistakes at all—on purpose or not—you can be held accountable for a felony and up to five years in prison and all sorts of fines.  But if you never file anything at all, the most you can be charged with is a misdemeanor and up to a year in jail.

This is because when you claim under penalty of perjury to be a federal officer—a Withholding Agent—and fail to perform your duty, it is a serious crime under martial law.  But when you claim no such official capacity and are merely presumed to be a “federal citizen” in the first place, the court has nothing but a legal presumption backing its actions against you and no actual evidence provided by your wet-ink signature on a 1040 or other filing.

So bust their presumptions. If you aren’t naturally subject to federal territorial or municipal jurisdiction, nor overjoyed with the “service” you are receiving from the “federal government” corporation and its federated “states of states”—– claim your exemption. Revoke your election to pay federal income taxes.  Stop paying the Beast that is offering to eat you.

It is your right and at some point, your responsibility, to see to it that your money is funding the actual government that is owed to you and not a fly-by-night foreign subcontractor making false claims against you and fleecing you blind.
