Rapper DMX Arrested for Trying to Stop the State from Stealing His Money

By John Vibes

Legendary rapper DMX was recently arrested and charged with tax evasion for allegedly withholding over $1.7 million from tax collectors.

U.S. Attorney Joon H. Kim, who is working the case, said in a statement that, “For years, Earl Simmons, the recording artist and performer known as DMX, made millions from his chart-topping songs, concert performances and television shows. But while raking in millions from his songs, including his 2003 hit ‘X Gon’ Give it to Ya,’ DMX didn’t give any of it to the IRS. Far from it, DMX allegedly went out of his way to evade taxes, including by avoiding personal bank accounts, setting up accounts in other’s names and paying personal expenses largely in cash. He even allegedly refused to tape the television show ‘Celebrity Couples Therapy’ until a properly issued check he was issued was reissued without withholding any taxes. Celebrity rapper or not, all Americans must pay their taxes, and together with our partners at the IRS, we will pursue those who deliberately and criminally evade this basic obligation of citizenship.”

However, DMX is long past the prime in his career, and most of the income in question was earned many years ago.

IRS agent James D. Robnett said, “While most individuals file truthful tax returns and pay their taxes, the indictment against Mr. Simmons alleges various tax crimes, including that he failed to file personal tax returns for several years and did not pay his fair share of taxes. IRS-Criminal Investigation will continue to focus our investigative efforts on those who try to conceal their income in order to evade their taxes.”

DMX is now looking at serious jail time, and is facing 14 different charges in court.

According to court documents, “Count One carries a maximum sentence of three years. Counts Two through Eight each carry a maximum sentence of five years. Counts Nine through Fourteen each carry a maximum sentence of one year.”

Some people would point out that DMX had plenty of money, and that he could have easily handed over his extortion fee and still be able to eat. However, if a wealthy man was walking down the street and was attacked by a mugger, would people still carry that same perception? Would everyone condemn this person for attempting to stand up against his mugger? Because DMX, and every other person who is forced to fill out a tax form, is by principle a victim of theft.

Thanks to a lifetime of propaganda, people will argue relentlessly that taxation is not an act of violence, they will deny that it perpetuates a complicated form of slavery, and many times get deeply offended when you point out the fact that it is theft.

Yet, peaceful people are taken against their will and thrown in cages every day for not paying taxes. If this action was not carried by the state, everyone would recognize it as a violent kidnapping. Whats worse is the fact that if any of these people made any attempts to defend themselves on their own property as they would against any other intruder, they would have been killed and treated as if they were the aggressor.

  1. “…we will pursue those who deliberately and criminally evade this basic obligation of citizenship.” There you have it. Taxation is an obligation of citizenship, specifically, US citizenship, which I’ll speculate many of you are NOT. Do you work for the UNITED STATES? Are you a naturalized citizen? Are you an officer or agent of the UNITED STATES? Are you currently in the military? Do you live in DC? There are a few more, but if you are none of these, you are not a US citizen. Citizen is an inferior political status. PLEASE understand this.

    Rappers at least need to come up with some new lyrics. “Shit, nigga’, fuck, damn, bitch” get old after about the 100th song.

  3. Where is the law that requires anyone outside of their jurisdiction to file? Hopefully this guy will not hire a member of the bar. Maybe this can help him.

    Taxes are voluntary

    Internal Revenue Manual, Chapter
    1100, section 1111.1

    “The purpose of the IRS is to collect the
    proper amount of tax revenues at the least cost to the public, and in a manner
    that warrants the highest degree of public confidence in our integrity,
    efficiency and fairness. To achieve that purpose, we will encourage and achieve
    the highest possible degree of voluntary
    compliance in accordance with the tax laws and

    Santo Presti, former IRS Criminal Investigation
    Agent and author of “IRS In Action”

    “Fear is the key element for
    the IRS in achieving its mission. Without fear, the IRS would have a difficult
    time maintaining our so-called system of voluntary
    compliance …”. “Given the opportunity, the IRS will
    take the easy way out and grab whatever it can… the IRS does not really care
    about you and what your future……. may be”.

    March 29, 1974 Federal Register,
    Donald C. Alexander, Commissioner of Internal Revenue:

    “The mission of the Service is to encourage and achieve
    the highest possible degree of voluntary
    compliance with the tax laws and regulations…”

    [emphasis added]

    Roger M Olsen, Assistant Attorney
    General, Tax Division, Department of Justice, Washington D.C., Saturday, May 9,
    1987 to an assemblage of tax lawyers

    “We encourage voluntary compliance
    by scaring the heck out of you!”

    There is No Law Requiring The People of The United States To Pay
    Taxes To The IRS.
    It’s always difficult to prove a negative, but
    those who know, understand there has been no law requiring citizens of The
    United States of America to pay taxes to any Federal Agency, much less Puerto
    Rican Trusts with secret owners.

    No Rule for Failure to File a Return

    According to 44 USC, every regulation or rule must be published in the
    Federal Register and must be approved by the Secretary of the Treasury. If
    there is no regulation, there is no implementation of the law. There can be
    found: no regulation governing “failure to file a return”; no regulation
    governing “failure to file,” and no computer code for “failure to file.” Oddly
    enough, there is a requirement stating where to file an income tax return, and
    26 C.F.R., Section 1.6091-3 states that “Income tax returns are required to be
    filed with the Director of International
    Operations.” Note the word “International.” Who is this Director?

  4. Best of luck to Mr. Simmons. He needs a good lawyer to help push the IRS back into the cave, where they belong.

  5. Death to taxers.

  6. The only reason governments have the power to extort money from us is that most people mistakenly believe that they are obligated to obey the government. This is the only thing that gives them the power to openly engage in extortion, while calling it “taxation”.

    “[The tyrant has] nothing more than the power that you confer upon him to destroy you. Where has he acquired enough eyes to spy upon you, if you do not provide them yourselves? How can he have so many arms to beat you with, if he does not borrow them from you? The feet that trample down your cities, where does he get them if they are not your own? How does he have any power over you except through you? How would he dare assail you if he had no cooperation from you?”
    — Etienne de La Boetie, French political philosopher
