    A senior IRS official who does not even know what constitutes taxable income.

    Can’t ait to see the day when this kind of police firepower, military tactics, and attention to facts and detail are called out when a cop shoots an unarmed WW II vet, an unarmed motorist traveling ten miles over the speed limit, a homeless man in Albuquerque, &c &c &c &c.

    true enough, 40! But it changes nothing, for 16A never changed the nature of the tax. After 16A, as before, the subject of the tax is privileged activity and liability is exactly the same as before. Find me the the activity taxed and your liability for it in the Code and I’ll attend whatever extensive training you have taken in the matter.

    WCF, you make a great point. Congress should not tax the rightful object of the tax into oblivion. Unfortunately, Marshall’s SCOTUS said they have ever right to do so.

    Still, that doesn’t impact Americans directly. Since Constitutional matters like taxation are not taught any longer (only 8% of Americans filed a return before WW II, using the same tax laws but with better education) most of the nation pays what they do not owe. Fortunately this is not a matter of public policy, out of our control. Take charge your own situation today and get a much larger paycheck tomorrow.

    Your facts here are right to the extent that they go. Read some more!

    No 40; the income tax goes back to 1862, during the Civil war.

    My research of the system covering decades can never come to a result near what your non-researched observations do not. I fully understand why you believe what you believe. I’m only saying that if you were to do the research that you suggest of others, you’d come to far different conclusions than you have. And that the result of that would vastly increase your bank account. Don’t be afraid to pursue knowledge, 40.

    Black, your sentiment is correct. Smaller govt, better. But the truest fact here is that IRS and the income tax ARE a perfect implementation of small, limited, restricted govt. It is a large number of Americans no longer schooled in those limits that have permitted a well-considered restriction to slide out of control. The great news is that any American can re-apply those boundaries, today. And as bizarre as it sounds, govt will obey.

    Jackact, Congress gave us a completely proper, pretty brilliant tax. It is We, the People who have twisted its application beyond recognition. Whilst Congress draws no accolades thse days, I have ZERO faith that an American population no longer schooled about Constitutional protections and limitations would understand well enough to implement a national flat tax, either.

    A 19% flat tax without deductions taxes everyone. The current tax only taxes privileged derivations drawn from the public domain — corporations mostly, and not the earnings of the little guy. Why would you want to transfer the burden from Exxon to the guy who works hard to pick up your trash every week?

    Now, Exxon knows this. Govt knows this. We just gotta get the worker to know it.

    No Allen. The problems will just begin. There is nothing wrong and everything right about the PROPER implementation of the income tax.

    Reality, I’ll call you and raise you one. Can you find what “non-profit” gains are taxed, and upon which they are made liable? If you can, you will be the first.

    The entire exemption question is completely misplaced. And if it is so because nothing for most “non profits” is taxable income so taxed, then consider that the same moot point applies to you as an individual. Consider that. Get a large pay raise for it!

  • [-2] May 16, 2014 at 7:50am

    No 40. It is because you don’t understand the tax. For once, Harry Reid is essentially right.

    Don’t ‘screw the Federal govt”. Give then what is rightfully theirs. Keep what is rightfully yours. But it will take some brushing up on your protections under the Constitution to know the difference.

    Earnings are a right, and not taxable. If you pay a tax on it, read up and reconsider your expensive action, as Americans in the know quietly do.

    An excise on spending? Well, OK I guess. But why on earth would you want to give up a tax whose only object and power is upon access to privilege of assets in the public domain? Why would you want to let the little guy shoulder the burden of gains upon corporate privilege?

  • May 16, 2014 at 7:43am

    LFTR -everything taxable before 16A was taxable after 16A. The amendment only ensured that an indirect excise could not be called a direct tax. See, Brushaber &c. Repeal of 16A would not do anything you desire. There was an income tax before 16A and there will continue to be income tax authority after 16A.

    Read up on the tax. You will be surprised. No, you’ll be blown away.

  • [-2] May 16, 2014 at 7:38am

    An income tax properly applied taxes only corporate privilege. Why would you want to spread that burden to everyone else?

    Spend a bit of time learning this law and its application. Americans who know better quietly do. Invoke your Constitutional protects and get a huge pay raise!

  • [-3] May 16, 2014 at 7:34am

    No! Income tax is our best friend. The Constitution and a century of case law make it very clear what is taxed and what is not. If Americans do not read and understand then govt will happily take your check. /// Govt has plenty of Constitutional ways to take in revenue without de facto handing them another one in the form of a national sales tax.

  • [-1] May 16, 2014 at 7:30am

    No 40, it is not. A long, long line of law and case law really does make sense. What does not make sense is Americans who have been schooled to set aside proper understanding of the law and the Constitution. Read up! It will be highly profitable if you do.

    No! No! No! Folks…the income tax is the very best friend of those who understand it. It ONLY taxes federal privilege to access public resources. IRS knows this. But anyone who misapplies the tax to their labor or to matters not taxed are allowed to do so,

    Fair tax? Sales tax? 9-9-9? All will impose an obligation where none exists now. If you want a pay raise larger than your boss could ever offer, brush up on the law — and the large number of Americans who quietly implement it.

    I will hire any veteran who demonstrates that they did the job they were hired for. Their job was to protect and defend the Constitution of the United States from all enemies, foreign and domestic.

    Guess I’ll be working by myself for a long time.

  • March 27, 2014 at 1:28pm

    Yup, okieqt. Think about it. For those who got/get a real education, there isn’t usually a spare minute of any day. extracurriculars take performance directly from academic performance.
