It is possible for most Americans to legally stop paying both federal and state income taxes. This applies to most Americans who live and work in the 50 States. It does not necessarily apply to Americans working for the federal government, or those who work in federal military installations. The central issue here is federal jurisdiction which is covered under question 3 below. However, anyone who has entered into a contract with the IRS to pay them, has to fulfill that contract unless he cancels all such contracts “for fraud”.
How the IRS tricks its victims into becoming “liable”.
IRS agents see it this way: By you sending a 1040 tax return to the IRS . . .
1) . . . you voluntarily assess yourself,
2) . . . you acquiesce to IRS jurisdiction,
3) . . . you become “liable” for federal income tax,
4) . . . you enter into a unilateral contract with them, which is rebuttable for lack of full
disclosure, which constitutes fraud.
When you open a bank account, on your signature card you sign something like, “Under penalty of perjury I certify that… [and] That the number shown on this form is my correct taxpayer identification number.
The signature card (without your knowledge) may also commit you to adhere to all current and future IRS regulations. Simply by opening a bank account you condemn yourself to being a “taxpayer” and you swear that your “social security number” is your “correct taxpayer identification number.”
By understanding this, you can undo it, because these supposed “contracts” with the IRS aren’t valid — they are rebuttable contracts.
