Former IRS Agent Admits: “Personal Income Tax is Actually Illegal”

tax_timeBy Mac Slavo

It is tax day again.

Chances are, you’re done with the dirty business this year, or laying low in hopes that you aren’t audited or flat-out persecuted. If not, the clock is quickly ticking.

But it is worth pointing out once again the many ways in which the federal tax scheme in the United States is illegal.

Moreover, the spending by the Federal government and the role of the Federal Reserve in issuing money create overlapping levels of evil that have driven the American people into mere serfs – albeit with cool toys and great TV reception.

Former IRS Special Agent Joe Bannister explains to CNBC what he found out about the reality of the tax code:

Essentially, its many pages are a work of legal fiction, operating under ‘color of law’ and used to oppress the people, and separate established wealth from everyone else.

Bannister argues that, by the books, the incomes of most Americans are not subject to the tax code, but the use of intimidation and nebulous code language has prevented the vast majority from discovering the truth.

In this vintage clip, then-Congressman Ron Paul argues that the 16th Amendment wasn’t properly ratified, leaving the 1913 “law” dubious at best.

Nonetheless, the use of intimidation and the custom of “death and taxes” has left millions and millions of people guilty until proven innocent, often labeled as “tax cheats” who are targeted without due process and with police state vengeance… now, they are attaining the power to revoke your passport if you don’t pay what they say you owe!

Will the American people ever be free from the burden of illegal taxation?

The late Aaron Russo, who produced several classic Hollywood films, put it all out in his documentary America: Freedom vs. Fascism.

If you haven’t seen it, Russo digs into the questions behind the questions and exposes the naked fraud that is holding America hostage.

This is a must-see documentary… and one to share with friends and family while they still have the nation’s ridiculous and obscene tax burden on their minds.

This might be the best insurance against economic collapse (Ad)

Make no mistake – simply knowing about this information will not protect you. As Russo has noted, the system is very much like a mob. If you don’t pay, they might hurt you, fine you, penalize you or even jail you. But none of that makes it right, fair or legal.

April 15th should be a reminder of how little freedom is left in the nation that so-often prides itself on being the leader of the free world – but the last thing Washington would ever do is let people be.

    Yea its illegal (income taxes) we all know that, But try not paying them and report back to us on how it went for you.

    • Simultaneously !!! They don’t have the resources to enforce the “tax” if millions agree to do.

        Wouldn’t it be cool if us millions of peons could get together…we COULD do this. Yet, we are at each other’s throats for everything and anything. It is so sad. The power us peons could have if we just stepped out of our comfy bubble to see the real world. Sigh.

    • Chuck – Visit the website Losthorizons. You will see thousands of people are getting full refunds back. You must read “Cracking the Code: The Fascinating Truth About Taxation in America” which you can purchase on the website. It is an essential study for all Americans and will give in scrupulous detail the history of our legal system, constitution, IRS, Supreme Court Rulings, etc. You will find out that income tax does NOT apply to private sector workers but is legal and definitely applies to government privileged “employees”, officers, elected officials, and federal connected economic activity. This is the only book I’ve ever read that meticulously clarifies the IRS’s intentional and nebulous incoherency and shows you how to protect yourself legally from their fraudulent deception.

        Bycristal, thanks, I’ll look into it later tonight when I have time.

        I just don’t want to be a test case for not paying taxes.

        As the saying goes
        “Pioneers take all the arrows.” I don’t want any government arrows shot into me.

        • No worries. There are about 1000 refunds uploaded from regular folk who just persisted through the IRS smoke and mirror threat-down charade. The refund checks are all legit from the US Treasury to people all over the country. When you understand the crack in the code, then you can stand confidently, legally and constitutionally despite anything the IRS says. They are now fully exposed … just a matter of time before they go down for fraudulent deception.

      so what should happen or what can we do? Comment like crazy and someday we shall all STOP PAYING these creeps and stand up to our oh so sick and corrupt government. Every little bit helps!

  2. Rich Dad – “I’m glad you got angry about working for 10 cents an hour. If you had not gotten angry and had gladly accepted it, I would have to tell you that I could not teach you. You see, true learning takes energy, passion, a burning desire. Anger is a big part of that formula, for passion is anger and love combined. When it comes to money, most people want to play it safe and feel secure. So passion does not direct them – FEAR does. They feel the fear of not having money. Instead of confronting the fear, they react instead of thinking. They react emotionally instead of using their heads. Then, they get a few bucks in their hands, and again the emotion of joy and desire and greed take over, and again they react, instead of thinking. Instead of telling the truth about how they feel, they react to their feeling, fail to think. They feel the fear, they go to work, hoping that money will soothe the fear, but it doesn’t. That old fear haunts them, and they go back to work, hoping again that money will calm their fears, and again it doesn’t. Fear has them in this trap of working, earning money, working, earning money, hoping the fear will go away. But every day they get up, and that old fear wakes up with them. So they get up and go to work, hoping that a paycheck will kill that fear gnawing at their soul. Money is running their lives, and they refuse to tell the truth about that. Money is in control of their emotions and hence their souls.”- by Robert Kiyosaki

    • Money is the cheapest way to pay for anything. Never forget that.

      • sharon sampson | April 17, 2016 at 2:49 pm | Reply

        there are ways to form a society without money. It is called ‘resource based’ society. takes a bit to understand, since we are so brainwashed that money is the only way to run a society. Go check out Venus Project with Jacque Fresco. money and humans do not work. period.

        • Beat you to that about 2 years ago. Thank you, though, Sharon.

          • sharon sampson | April 17, 2016 at 7:02 pm |

            Pyra! Are you saying you’ve watched the Venus Project and good ole Zeitgeist?

          • Pyra Gorgon | April 17, 2016 at 7:51 pm |

            Yes. I am saying that. I am also saying that I have done additional reading and ‘getting to know’ those who were spearheading all that.

          • sharon sampson | April 18, 2016 at 2:33 pm |

            So what in your opinion do you think will happen? The thought that only the ELITES will uphold the human race makes me sick. Do you know Peter Joseph? Or whatever his real name is! What a genius and musician! Do you know Jacques Fresco? He is my hero. Is he still alive?

          • Pyra Gorgon | April 19, 2016 at 7:42 am |

            Hiya Sharon,
            I do not know Peter Joseph personally and I am content with calling him ‘Peter Joseph’ meaning I have not questioned whether or not that is his real name. He is a strong speaker and could probably do a great job hosting ANCIENT ALIENS instead of that crazy-haired Giorgio Tsoukalos. I do not know if Jacques Fresco is still with us or if he passed.

            The Venus Project never got off the ground. It will never work and we see why: personalities. Just as the personalities who attempted to jump-start The Venus Project could not work together even make a go of it, so too, will other people not be able to actualize The Venus Project ideology due to personality also. The problem is not the idea, but the actors who make ideas into realities. The Bible calls this condition a “sinful nature/ depraved/ reprobate/ fallen/ body of corruption or death” Pick one or two or all.

            For The Venus Project to work, everyone in that society must be moral and ethical. The point Jacques fails at is in thinking that lacking nothing, not being compelled by necessity, will make humans more altruistic and caring about fellow man. History has shown this not to be the case. Some would argue that there has not been times of plenty lacking nothing so how can we know? We can know by what comes out of the human gene pool: psychopaths, sociopaths, perverts, murderers, compulsive thieves, and sexual deviants that cramdown their viewpoints on others. This all causes conflicts that have NOTHING TO DO WITH RESOURCES! Jacques forgets that not all human conflict is caused by resource fighting/ control. Some just like to make others miserable. Jacques and Peter have no good response to this. No one does other than our LORD God. He wrote a book telling us how to sort that stuff out.

            As for elites holding together humanity, that is just silly. The elite have always been parasitical to humanity. Nimrod was the first tyrant after the Flood and there has not been a time since him we have not had men like him in power, ruling over the rest of us for their own ego and material gains at our collective expense.

          • sharon sampson | April 19, 2016 at 2:38 pm |

            That is why I don’t think Venus Project even just the ideals could make it until we are all wiped out by some catastrophe and hopefully some very educated, smart leader type could direct the survivors to a better type of civilization. Not the perfect solution but better than what we have.

            Did you watch the THIRD Zeitgeist? Talks about HUMAN NATURE. Which there really isn’t. Pretty convincingly done. Did you see the one about Peter Joseph himself and his xylophone…is that the word? Wow. Anyhoo. The interview with him made lots of sense, boy is he a young one.

            The Elites being able to carry humanity along?…I just meant that their genes will be a mile underground and that their genes will be the only viable genes for humanity ’cause we’ll all be gone unless we have ‘bunkers’ to go to hide out in…that makes me sick.

          • Pyra Gorgon | April 19, 2016 at 3:18 pm |

            We are all appointed once to die, including ‘elites’, Sharon. A beautiful life is better than a perfect death. I’d say being murdered while you attempt to help others during times of chaos and catastrophe is far more worthy of notice than some ultra-rich coward who attempts to hide from the consequences of the disaster they created by being crushed like a bug in their bunkers.

          • sharon sampson | April 19, 2016 at 3:41 pm |

            Oh I completely understand and have no qualms about the future and standing up alone against the…majority? Morality is the beginning of evolution of a new species, once the individual parts can get together and act as a whole. Don’t need any God to tell me that. Unless he or she actually appears to me sans psychedelics! Then I’d probably listen. Hasn’t happened in my lifetime and I feel we should be on our own anyhoo. I never ran to mom and dad for a single thing when I got in trouble even when I lived at home before college…that I put myself through without a dime of help. Why shouldn’t it be the same for a God we’ve never heard, never have seen and gee, we can easily see that the Bible is one huge peice of plagiarism from earlier millenia, especially the Persians, Sumatrans and Egyptians. Religion, truly the opiate of the masses…wasn’t that from the Romans who actually promoted Christianity because they could use it to quell the sheepies? Ugh.

          • Mahatma Muhjesbude | April 18, 2016 at 9:33 am |

            Problem with Venus type projects based on so called resource based or meritocracy structured social paradigms is that these require a consensus of like-minded collective consciousness that is solidly based in a value creation mentality of higher enlightenment.

            Which by defination of purpose in pragmatic application must remain absent of the current mode of humanity and its psychology that is plagued with greed, jealousy, blind hatred, impulsive violence, abject intransigent ignorance, close minded confirmation bias, and bigotry, and enslavement to manipulated forces of nature in the most banal personal manner.

            Which eventually deteriorates into all out self population controlling warfare between Nature’s own population control, in the form of large scale extinction events.

            Hopefully, for the ultimate survival of the species, each successive epoch gets itself a little further along the path to higher consciousness, and a more enlightened value creating existence.

            Looks like we still got a few hundred years to go…

          • sharon sampson | April 18, 2016 at 2:30 pm |

            I agree. The only way for anything smart like the principles of the Venus Project to ever take effect is when we have gone through an apocalypse or horrible devastation event. This is only if some of us ‘enlightened’ can survive. What I am seeing is that the only survivors will be those inbred ELITE!

          • Mahatma Muhjesbude | April 18, 2016 at 2:55 pm |

            Hahaahah! Hope you make it. The ‘project’ group could always use someone with a sardonic sense of humor!

        • Money is absolutely required for complex societies, Sharon. I barter with others down in my locales, but when I need things like toilet paper, I still must use money to acquire that.

          The problem is not MONEY. The problem is people. Always people. People do not use money properly, nor do they comprehend what it is for. MONEY IS A MEDIUM OF VALUE EXCHANGE. When you start ‘monetizing your money’ you get into a huge mess of over-complexity that is breeding grounds for fraud.

          People always want something for nothing. This is why money is always corrupted sooner than later. Usury and ‘filthy lucre’ is caused by greed, avarice, and basic laziness. Why work for money when you can make money work for you? (as the saying goes) Problem with that rationale is that money cannot do any work: it is inanimate, nor should it because the function of money is exchange of value and not a worker. Given this one point, is it any wonder why money and people have such a nasty relationship?

    • Gee, Croco, thats so true! Not nice to admit but thats pretty much our lives right there!

    Unbelievable that we KNOW the IRS Tax is completely illegal. Yet the IRS can screw anyone over that they deign owes them. Even putting us in jail, taking everything someone has earned without shedding a tear. And making the payment to the IRS, knowing this, is so hard to swallow, sending away so much money that would be very much fun to spend for a little vacation. Yet, the IRS continues, illegal as heck. The Federal Reserve is PRIVATE…most people don’t understand this. Obama should NOT be in office, Hillary should be in prison…so crazy. How the heck do we stand up to this crap? Welp, one very intelligent, kind, educated, experienced man was assassinated recently and so many regular people are making stuff up to make the killing…HIS own fault. They side with the ‘feds’ and cops. Whoa. Most of us are so comfortable that we will believe anything, say anything to STAY comfortable.The crazy rich should have to pay taxes. The crazy, snotty rich should be held accountable by our laws. Oh no, just us peons get hasseled, put in jail and condemned. Arghhhh.

        I like your analogy very much…what does it mean to have the label NO? Do you disagree with me or agree?


        • I pretty much agree with what you said, I’m just not certain about who you were talking about getting murdered. Was it Lavoy?

          If yes, I agree with that, too, and IMO those dastardly locals who denigrated and berated the group also have blood on their hands.

          If it was someone else then I can’t say until I know of whom you speak.

          Otherwise, I think I agree. Hard to be absolutely certain on a mobile phone trying to read something all bundled up with no breaks. It makes me cross-eyed. Ha!

          • sharon sampson | April 17, 2016 at 2:17 pm |

            I am grinning hugely! I do not do the mobile phone thing…we are most certainly on the same page! Such a relief…I mean we see or are able to see everything everyone else can see and so many are on the side of the government and feds. Mr. Finicum has truly shown that an American can face death when they see that wrong is wrong by the Feds and what a courageous man. What he willingly left behind is phenomenal. What are other people watching where they can say he was on welfare, wanted FREEBIES, wanted suicide by cop??? I hope his sacrifice doesn’t get swept under the rug. Those Burns people are such wimps. There are a few that get what’s going on but poor Sheriff Palmer!

            Hey big huggs, Cyndi!

    • When you fill out and submit any IRS forms you are telling the IRS that you come under their jurisdiction. And, when you do this you are waving several of your Constitutional rights. That is why you are guilty until proven innocent in their ‘courts’.

  6. Bannister won his case, but has anyone else?

  7. …but it was supposed to be a corporate tax, not an individual tax.

    • sharon sampson | April 17, 2016 at 2:27 pm | Reply

      bingo, Cyndi…supposedly an apportioned tax which would leave regular people out of paying taxes. Did you know that each of us has a ‘dopplebanger'( is that right)? When we were issued our birth certificate we each became owned by the government. Our names are spelled in all caps. Yada yada yada this gets so involved but essentially we are all slaves. Slaves that pay their own room and board and also taxes! As we make money for the rich. The United States is not a soverign country…it is a CORPORATION belonging somehow to the Queen of England. Anyhoo, paying the IRS any money at all makes me sick. We only get 3 years to go back and fix mistakes. They get 7. How fair is that? We should all get ourselves our own accountants, bookkeepers to stay on top of saving our hard earned moola.

    We will see on 9 November 2016 whether we will have to have a complete revolution in this country or not. This is the corrupt politicians time to get out of DC alive, nobody can protect the corrupt anymore.

  9. Income (at the time of the passage of the income tax amendment was defined(known) as profit from the sale of goods and services. Wages were not “income”. Because of WWII, and the victory tax and SS, somehow wages were taxed as income and employers made responsible. Nobody noticed that the victory tax morphed into income tax on wages.
    It is also worth noting that before the income tax there were 1000 millionaires in the US. With the tax rate at 90% after the first year of taxation, there was only 1.

  10. Many people have been imprisoned or bankrupted because they didn’t pay. I’m so much happier to know I don’t legally owe the tax. Now tell me how to stop paying it without being ruined for life. Everything else is moot.

  11. Yes, it IS illegal. This is why Peter Schiff’s father, Irwin, went to prison and did not want to be released. He wanted to prove he was right by staying in prison and fighting this criminal system!
