For far too long the IRS has been able to convince Americans they owe a sizable amount of their blood, sweat, and tears to the federal government. The truth is quite different. Only if an American engages in a privileged activity (i.e. selling guns to the federal government) are they liable for this pernicious tax.

Last year I had a warrant article added to the town warrant in Northfield, New Hampshire that would force the selectmen to ask the IRS three questions:

1. Where is the word “income” defined in the IRS code? According to former IRS Commissioner Sheldon Cohen it isn’t defined anywhere within the code. [This is clearly documented on video in Aaron Russo’s  “America: Freedom to Fascism”]

2. Where in the code is it written that the average American, who does not exercise a federal privilege, but simply trades his time for money, is liable to pay the federal income tax?

3. Why have numerous IRS publications, IRS Directors, and U.S. Congressmen, among others, stated that the income tax is “voluntary”?

Unfortunately, one of Northfield's state reps undercut my efforts at Town Meeting by telling the townspeople this issue would best be dealt with in the statehouse. Then, when the time came for him to fulfil his obligation he claimed there was no support for such a maneuver. Therefore, I am headed back to Town Meeting this March with a new petition and a bonus question* which I've posted at the bottom.

One only has to look at how certain keywords are defined in the code to see how the federal income tax doesn't apply to the Average American.

26 U.S. Code § 3401 - Definitions

(a) Wages
For purposes of this chapter, the term “wages” means all remuneration (other than fees paid to a public official) for services performed by an employee for his employer...

(c) Employee
For purposes of this chapter, the term “employee” includes an officer, employee, or elected official of the United States, a State, or any political subdivision thereof, or the District of Columbia, or any agency or instrumentality of any one or more of the foregoing. The term “employee” also includes an officer of a corporation.

You can go to and see for yourself. Something is fishy here folks. I’m no legal beagle, I just swing a hammer for a living, but I’m not willing to send my hard-earned money to a bunch of bureaucrats--who only seem to waste it--without it being shown where exactly it is written in the law that I am liable.

If you are tired of the IRS using the fear of violence in order to obtain compliance please support my warrant article to the town warrant here in Northfield, New Hampshire. Although this is happening in New Hampshire this is a national issue. We need to stop funding the insanity in D.C. before they bankrupt us financially and morally.

*Bonus question included this year:

Using the word "income" as commonly-defined-- that is, as "what comes in"-- what are the specific characteristics or considerations that distinguish tax-relevant (and/or taxable) gains, profits and income from gains, profits and income which are not tax relevant (and/or taxable)?

For a great collection of videos detailing the true nature of the income tax check out Pete Hendrickson's Youtube channel. There are numerous testimonials of people who have gotten all of their withheld money withheld back. The truth about the income tax needs to come to light. Especially in times like this with so many people suffering from rampaging inflation. It seems like the privately-owned "Federal Reserve'' bank will never stop printing increasingly worthless dollars.
