|watching....yes, I am wrong about the 20% you
Now that I have admitted that, does my credibility increase enough for you to attempt to refute the other 4 Supreme Court decisions? Or does my one fault always, and continually >forever< prevent you from rational thought and discourse?
So let's see you can possibly refute the other four Supreme Court decisions that I cited...go on....do it, if you have the ability.....we all want to see you do it. My bet is that you can't, because those cases are airtight,........nobody earning a wage owes income tax.........well....go on....prove that the Supreme Court is wrong....I dare you, you moronic puffball.

mons, and to give testimony or answer interrogatories, under oath, respecting any objects liable to tax or the returns thereof. The col- lector may summon any person residing or found within the State in which his district lies; and when the person intended to be sum- moned does not reside and can not be found within such State, he may enter any collection district where such person may be found and there make the examination herein authorized. And to this end he may there exercise all the authority which he might lawfully exer- cise in the district for which he was commissioned.
"SEC. 3176. When any person, corporation, company, or associa- tion refuses or neglects to render any return or list required by law, or renders a false or fraudulent return or list, the collector or any deputy collector shall make, according to the best information which he can obtain, including that derived from the evidence elicited by the examination of the collector, and on his own view and informa- tion, such list or return, according to the form prescribed, of the in- come, property, and objects liable to tax owned or possessed or under the care or management of such person or corporation, company or association, and the Commissioner of Internal Revenue shall assess all taxes not paid by stamps, including the amount, if any, due for special tax, income or other tax, and in case of any return of a false or fraudulent list or valuation intentionally he shall add 100 per centum to such tax; and in case of a refusal or neglect, except in cases of sickness or absence, to make a list or return, or to verify the same as aforesaid, he shall add 50 per centum to such tax. In case of neglect occasioned by sickness or absence as aforesaid the collector may allow such further time for making and delivering such list or return as he may deem necessary, not exceeding thirty days. The amount so added to the tax shall he collected at the same time and in the same manner as the tax unless the neglect or falsity is discovered after the tax has been paid, in which case the amount so added shall be collected in the same manner as the tax; and the list or return so made and subscribed by such collector or deputy collector shall be held prima facie good and sufficient for all legal purposes."
J. That it shall be the duty of every collector of internal revenue, to whom any payment of any taxes other than the tax represented by an adhesive stamp or other engraved stamp is made under the provisions of this section, to give to the person making such payment a full written or printed receipt, expressing the amount paid and the particular account for which such payment was made; and whenever such payment is made such collector shall, if required, give a separate receipt for each tax paid by any debtor, on account of payments made to or to be made by him to separate creditors in such form that such debtor can conveniently produce the same separately to his sev- eral creditors in satisfaction of their respective demands to the amounts specified in such receipts; and such receipts shall be suffi- cient evidence in favor of such debtor to justify him in withholding the amount therein expressed from his next payment to his creditor; but such creditor may, upon giving to his debtor a full written receipt, acknowledging the payment to him of whatever sum may be actually paid, and accepting the amount of tax paid as aforesaid (specifying the same) as a further satisfaction of the debt to that amount, require the surrender to him of such collector's receipt.
K. That jurisdiction is hereby conferred upon the district courts of the United States for the district within which any person sum- moned under this section to appear to testify or to produce books shall reside, to compel such attendance, production of books, and testimony by appropriate process.
L. That all administrative, special, and general provisions of law, including the laws in relation to the assessment, remission, collection,

and refund of internal-revenue taxes not heretofore specifically repealed and not inconsistent with the provisions of this section, are hereby extended and made applicable to all the provisions of this section and to the tax herein imposed.
M. That the provisions of this section shall extend to Porto Rico and the Philippine Islands: Provided, That the administration of the law and the collection of the taxes imposed in Porto Rico and the Philippine Islands shall be by the appropriate internal-revenue officers of those governments, and all revenues collected in Porto Rico and the Philippine Islands thereunder shall accrue intact to the general governments, thereof, respectively: And provided further, That the jurisdiction in this section conferred upon the district courts of the United States shall, so far as the Philippine Islands are concerned, be vested in the courts of the first instance of said islands: And provided further, That nothing in this section shall be held to exclude from the computation of the net income the compensation paid any official by the governments of the District of Columbia, Porto Rico and the Philippine Islands or the political subdivisions thereof.
N. That for the purpose of carrying into effect the provisions of Section II of this Act, and to pay the expenses of assessing and col- lecting the income tax therein imposed, and to pay such sums as the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, with the approval of the Secre- tary of the Treasury, may deem necessary, for information, detection, and bringing to trial and punishment persons guilty of violating the provisions of this section, or conniving at the same, in cases where such expenses are not otherwise provided for by law, there is hereby appropriated out of any money in the Treasury not otherwise appro- priated for the fiscal year ending June thirtieth, nineteen hundred and fourteen, the sum of $800,000, and the Commissioner of Internal Revenue, with the approval of the Secretary of the Treasury, is authorized to appoint and pay from this appropriation all necessary officers, agents, inspectors, deputy collectors, clerks, messengers and janitors, and to rent such quarters, purchase such supplies, equip- ment, mechanical devices, and other articles as may be necessary for employment or use in the District of Columbia or any collection dis- trict in the United States, or any of the Territories thereof: Provided, That no agent paid from this appropriation shall receive compensa- tion at a rate higher than that now received by traveling agents on accounts in the Internal Revenue Service, and no inspector shall receive a compensation higher than $5 a day and $3 additional in lieu of subsistence, and no deputy collector, clerk, messenger, or other employee shall be paid at a rate of compensation higher than the rate now being paid for the same or similar work in the Internal Revenue Service.

|I've followed the Cryer trial and attended it in
its entirity and now come here to read many of the comments and must say
that the diversity of views about the federal income tax scheme exhibits a
clear point for all of us to consider. |
That point is... virtually no one in this great nation has ever made a serious effort to research the federal laws associated with the income tax. Tommy Cryer did!
Conveniently within one's grasp, Title 26 (the Internal Revenue Code) is online for free at Cornell Law School's website... go to google and search with the keywords Title 26 and Cornell Law and it should be easy to find.
Now... look in the definitions sections Title 26 3401, 3121 and 7701 for the definition of terms that are exclusive to Title 26.
Who in this forum needs the federal government to define the definition of the United States in Title 26? Raise your hand. Well, knowing the definition of the Code's words and terms are crucial elements one will need to know in order to fully understand the misapplication of the laws by the IRS.
Focus your attention on three major areas... Who is made liable for the tax? What is the definition of income (hint: it's NOT defined anywhere in the Internal Revenue Code)? What items of wages, salary and income are TAXABLE?
You may be shocked to learn that some things you always believed about Congress' power to tax ane simply not true.
Do a google on 'Truth Attack' for an introduction into the tax honesty movement on the internet.

|and the world as we knew it 40 years ago had the blacks drinking from separate water fountains, entering establishments through a separate door and standing in the back of the bus just because that was the way it had always been done. It wasnt until they rose up in numbers and demanded that the law be followed, that change came about and when enough of the tax burdened free people of this country do the same, we might get the courts to follow the law where the IRS is concerned.|

|Go back and read what "MAC" wrote. That is what
actually happened. All of this other stuff about proving taxes were
illegal is all false. |
"MAC" is the obviously the only person who actually knows what happened in the case. The jury didn't even hear the argument that taxes are illegal. It's public record... go check it out.

It's not that I don't like the 20%. The problem is that the 20% puts a hole in your credibility because what you claimed to be in that 20% was wrong. You call me lazy yet you didn't even do any of the research yourself. You plagiarized (look the word up) the research of another.
Why don't you take just one of those remaining cases and paste the relevant parts of it? If those rulings say what the real author claims, then you should be able to do that with no problem. You can even pick your case.
I'm not an expert on this subject but it's become very obvious that you don't know what you are talking about.
