Comment: 16th Amendment conferred NO new power...

(See in situ)


16th Amendment conferred NO new power...

Stanton vs. Baltic Mining US Supreme Court Decision states:

"It was settled by the previous ruling that the provisions of the 16th Amendment conferred NO new power of taxation"

So if the government didn't have it before, and didn't get it, then they don't have it.

It is very well understood that the 16th amendment ONLY categorized the income tax as an indirect excise, NOT a direct tax that can be laid without requiring apportionment.

The Brushaber US Supreme court decision said that the assumption that the 16th amendment creates some unknown hitherto power of taxation was a frivolous argument. They said the 16th amendment did NOT create the ability for the Federal government to lay a direct tax without apportionment. The Brushaber court said that that understanding of being able to lay a type of direct tax without apportionment is without merit...

Therefore, if the Income Tax is an indirect excise then it MUST be applied as an indirect excise. There must first be a privilege exercised before any tax is due.

What's taxable:

Federal employee's at any level
Foreigner's and non-resident aliens
Americans working in Federal Possessions (Guam, Puerto Rico, etc...)
Multinationals and foreign corps.

What's not taxable:

Average American living and working within the 50 states in the private sector are NOT shown to be taxable throughout the code and cannot.

This second category of "what's not taxable" would be a direct tax that would require apportionment, but the first listing of what is taxable would be considered an excise in relation to the income that is earned in connection to the federal income tax.

That is the truth. Constitutional amendments MUST repeal certain aspects of the original Constitution or another amendment in order to change the meaning of certain clauses. That's why the Supreme court said the 16th amendment conferred NO NEW POWER OF TAXATION!!!!!
