Good job Julius

Like you said, registration of property is voluntary. I was going to go with an example of the IRS in order to show Limelemon why we are "presumed" to consent from the first move.

Let's say you get a letter from the IRS telling you they didn't receive your 1040. The IRS is assuming (presuming) that you are required to file and have "forced" you into the game!

If you don't respond properly, they will proceed to tax you as if it were voluntary. Here your silence is the consent to them filing a 1040 substitute. Let's say you do respond. If your response does not include a denial of income, then they will proceed with the substitute 1040. They do this because the tax is on "income" no matter where it comes from.

The IRS already has all the 1099's that show "income" that was received by you. But, and it's a big one, if you create the issue that what you received was not "income", then the burden shifts to the IRS to prove that what you got was "income".

The interesting thing about getting to this point with the IRS is most people think that the IRS can prove you had income. They can't, so if they are really persistent, they will say, "we think it's income, what do you think it is?" And here is the kicker, if you don't know the answer to this question, they will proceed with the substitute return because without answering the question, they presume (you consent) that YOU HAD INCOME.

That's how it works in the real world, although there are many out there who just want to be left alone and not get involved in this stuff, but i'm finding the rules of the game here on earth is, YOU HAVE TO PLAY THE GAME.... or they will play it for you... to their advantage.

Welcome to Amerika...the land of consent by presumption.
