If you never agreed to pay taxes, Robert, why pay?

The Federal Income tax is an excise tax. Excise tax and Privilege tax are synonymous. Exercising a Federal privilege is a taxable activity. If you don’t exercise a Federal privilege there is no taxable activity. Boeing makes jet planes for the Federal govt. and jets for private commercial airlines. Making planes for the Federal govt. is a privilege and is a taxable activity. Making planes for private airlines is not exercising a Federal privilege and therefore is not a taxable activity.

So, why do you pay? When you work for a company, they give you an accounting of your earnings in January for the past year. It is an information return and you know it as a W-2. The IRS also gets a copy. The information return contains specific terms, not words, which mean something other than what you use in everyday language. These terms are defined in Title 26, the Internal Revenue Code.

The company unknowingly misapplies the law and tells the IRS that your “Wages” were from exercising a Federal privilege. If you did so, you have a taxable activity. If you did not exercise a Fed privilege, then you rebut the incorrect information return and pay no tax. Use the IRS Form that provides for such rebuttal. You are not alone. Approximately 99% of the people think they owe the tax when it only applies to 1% of the people. Smack down that information return.

We, at the Daily Paul, want our servants to follow the Constitution they have sworn an oath to protect and defend. Our founders put strict Constitutional limitations on the taxing powers of the Federal government.

The United States Constitution, Article 1, Section 2, Representatives and direct taxes shall be apportioned among the several States. Section 9: "No capitation, or other direct, Tax shall be laid, unless in Proportion to the Census or Enumeration herein before directed to be taken." Mentioned twice, must be important.

So Robert, learn the truth about the “Income” tax and no more bitching and moaning or pain, just smile your way to your new-found freedom/Liberty. The Constitution is the Supreme law of the land. No direct taxes.
