Clearing up the confusion: Is the income tax voluntary?Submitted by go213mph on Sat, 07/20/2013 - 18:41
Though it may seem confusing at first, the correct answer is: The federal income tax is voluntary, and if you volunteer, it is mandatory. Those Americans who voluntarily choose to work for the National Government as a career choice find that the federal income tax is mandatory due to the Legislative Intent of the 16th Amendment.
Those Americans who were born in one of the 50 states of the Union, to parents of which at least one of them was born in one of the 50 states, or those who were naturalized, must realize that the federal income tax for them is completely voluntary.
The truth has been obfuscated for many years by a government who is not only trying to protect its stream of revenue, but indeed growing an empire via military action with bases in over 120 countries.
