Income Tax is Voluntary, Say IRS Chiefs Again and Again


Income tax is voluntary in the US. It’s pretty much an open secret. Various IRS directors, commissioners and politicians have admitted it.

Income tax is voluntary in the US.

Don’t believe it? Then just listen to and read all the various quotes from IRS directors, commissioners and former agents, not to mention all the quotes from congressmen and women. The Federal Income Tax is voluntary. It’s a voluntary system that encourages, but does not mandatorily require, your participation. The IRS deliberately tries to deceive and confuse people with its overuse of the phrase voluntary compliance. This term voluntary compliance is a classic oxymoron or contradiction in terms. You don’t voluntarily comply to anything. You do something voluntarily; or you are forced to comply and to do something mandatory.

Former IRS Director Steve Miller Testifies That Income Tax is Voluntary

In the video clip above, we see not only former IRS director Steve Miller testifying in front of Congress that the Income Tax is voluntary, but we also see current congressman Xavier Becerra (D-CA) affirming it too. It’s an open secret. No one is really trying to hide the fact all that much – if you care to look. “We have to maintain the confidence in this system, because it’s a voluntary system of the payment of our taxes,” says Becerra. You could call it confidence, or you could call it blatant deception and fraud, depending on your perspective. Remember, none of the money unlawfully hoodwinked and extracted out of people by the IRS goes towards paying for essential services, as the Reagan-initiated 1984 Grace Commission concluded and reported.

The Federal Income Tax is about control, not getting money for essential governmental operations. It’s a class war. It’s about keeping the working class poor and under the heel of the rich.

Other Admissions That Income Tax is Voluntary

Former IRS commissioner, Margaret Milner Richardson, admitted that the public bashing of the IRS may “ultimately … may have some impact on our self-assessment system” (i.e. our voluntary system).

Former head of the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Division of the IRS, Dwight Avis, said “Your income tax is 100% voluntary tax, and your liquor tax is 100% enforced tax. Now, the situation is as different as night and day …”.

Justice Hugo Black declared in United States v. Kahriger, 345 U.S. 22 (1953): “The United States has a system of taxation by confession.” Your tax return is your confession, and by filing one you cede your 5th Amendment right to not incriminate yourself.

“Our system of taxation is based upon voluntary assessment and payment, not upon distraint,” ruled the US Supreme Court in Flora v. United States, 362 U.S. 145, pg. 176. Distraint means seizure of property.

Knowledge is one thing; applying it practically is another. Tools for Freedom offers some tools to help you regain your sovereignty in the area of unjust taxation, should you decide to walk that path.

This you tube has been spliced. It’s a fraud! Rep. Becerra jumped from questioning Mr Steven Miller as addressed in the recording, but then splices to Mr George. Hmmm…..not how the actual live hearings aired.
I watched Mr Miller’s testimony live and this adaptation is a fraud. Post Mr Miller’s true sworn testimony, that taxes are voluntary as many other former agents have come out of the woodwork to attest to and blow whistles!
The fraudulent tax system in America is a fraud, scam and theft of Americans money and property in violation of our real Constitution. FRAUD is a FELONY! Try reporting with integrity for the truth must be told.
Where is the honor in this country, in journalism, in politics, in humanity? In the ‘elites’ wallet and bank accounts! WAKE UP AMERICA.
We’ve been duped again! The time to save America is now!
National Liberty is organizing the forming of Common Law Grand Juries (the non-violent resolve) as provided in our Bill of Rights. All Americans are needed to join today and hold them accountable!Come and learn.

The tax code is not Law, but uniform commercial code and has chained many into a code contract through just a signature on a driver’s license, bank statements, w4’s, w2’s, car registration, bank signed loans, and people thought the credit card companies were deceiving. Uniform Commercial Code hayous made it easier for the rich to steal from the poor and as soon as the game is known the rich usually change the rules.

*When signing always sign – UCC 1-308(know what this means, look it up) It a person their constitutional rights back. Now they can change UCC, so you could simply sign reservation of rights, or I reserve all my rights or I reserve all my constitutional rights. If you do not sign correctly then one becomes subject to all the rules, tax codes, codes,fees, etc… This is a trap and it is contract law and ignorance is no excuse under the law.

*Note: Blacks Law Dictionary 1st and 2nd edition are the definitions used during the signing of the Declaration of Independence and are the true definitions in a court of Law, so whatever Websters dictionary or IRS says income tax is, only Blacks Law Dictionary will stand true in a court of law. Income tax under Blacks Law Dictionary is profit and gains. Wages definition in Blacks Law dictionary is compensation. Congress taxed profit and gains, not compensation. Workers receive compensation not profit and gains.

Is The IRS Guilty of Fraud?

The Fraud Concerning USC Title 31 section 742:

USC Title 31 section 742 “Except as otherwise provided by law all stocks, bonds, treasury notes and other obligations of the United States Government shall be exempt from the state, local and municipal authority. This exemption extends to every form of taxation that would require that either the obligation or the interest theron or both be considered directly or indirectly in the computation of the tax. See Memphis Bank and Trust Cs. V Garner, 459 U.S. 392 (1983) this is a Supreme Court case that says that Title 31 USC section 742 is the supreme law of the land. And it does so on a diversity of tax arguments based on discriminatory franchise of bond holdings. This is saying, “Except as otherwise provided by law all stocks, bonds, treasury notes…What is Federal Reserve note? It’s a Treasury Note… and other obligations of the United States…What obligations? Title 12 Section 411 says “Said note (Treasury Note or Federal Reserve note) shall be deemed to be obligations of the United States Government. This means they can not figure a tax by using obligations of the United States Government. This exemption extends to every form of taxation that would require either the obligation, or the interest thereon, or both be considered directly or indirectly in the computation of the tax. This case or argument was originally brought in the matter of People V Shepherd out of Lansing, and after that case they went in all the law books and they pulled out title 31, section 742… That is how scared they are of this title.

After looking into Sheppard’s Citations there was no note that said “annulled, repealed, or otherwise transferred to some other law.” There is just a void. This simply means there is no legal reason for them to pull out title 31, section 742. The missing pages are between Title 31 section 734, and Title 31 section 752. They went in and pulled this argument out. Why do you think they did that? Because every state in the union that went off the gold and silver standard under Article I Section 10 of the United States Constitution was locked out of taxing the citizens in any capacity, by the use of obligations of the United States Government. So, they went into all the law books and pulled it out. Then they went into Sheppard’s Citations and instead of putting a note down there as to what happened, they just created a void. What is that evidence of? FRAUD
