"Considering that senior officials at the Internal Revenue Service are fully aware of the fact that there is no law currently in existence making a U.S. citizen liable for or required to pay either the income tax or the social security employment tax, only a truly generous citizen would, upon discovering this, continue to voluntarily donate these taxes to the government by allowing them to be withheld from his paycheck on a 100% voluntary W-4 withholding agreement. But, then again, the IRS would be dead in the water without the "voluntary (and docile) compliance" of employers and employees and has said so all along."

It doesn't matter that the Internal Revenue Service is not an entity of the de jure U.S.A. It doesn't matter that there is no law currently in existence making a U.S. citizen liable for or required to pay either the income tax or the social security employment (fica) tax. It doesn't matter that so few (ZERO would be an acceptable number) voluntarily donate these taxes to government by allowing them to be withheld from their paycheck on a 100% voluntary W-4 withholding agreement. It doesn't matter that the IRS has been exposed as a criminal endeavor progressing the statitist theocracy's dogmas. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land is so corrupt that the unlawful compelled compliance to the alleged 'voluntary' is with very little exception - the norm

    People comply when the Mob "offers" to sell them Insurance too. It's probably better to comply than to resist and get really hurt by a system of sociopathic violent extortion...but it can't last. There is very likely a crash coming and no one will be volunteering to give these monsters anything.

    There are 4 Subtitles in the IRC.
    Subtitle A. Income tax.
    Subtitle B. Estate & Gift Tax.
    Subtitle C. Employment Tax.
    Subtitle D. Misc Excise Tax.
    At section 7701 (a) (16) General Definitions for the entire Code we find Withholding agent. -- "The term "withholding agent" means any person required to deduct and withhold any tax under the provisions of 1441, 1442, 1443, or 1461.
    These provisions are located in Subtitle A, Chapter 3.
    1441, Withholding of tax on nonresident aliens.
    1442, Withholding of tax on foreign corporations.
    1443, Foreign tax-exempt organizations.
    1461, Liability for withheld tax. Every person required to withhold any tax under this chapter is hereby made liable for such tax and is hereby indemnified against the claim and demands of any person for the amount of any payments made in accordance with the provisions of this chapter.
    Withholding of tax is applicable ONLY to Subtitle A income tax.
    There are no provisions for withholding for Subtitle C. Employment tax. Employment tax is Social Security (FICA) and applies ONLY to federal employees & U.S. citizens and residents.
    U.S. citizens are those born in the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands etc. or any place owned by the federal government.
    I have no doubt that those born in the Territories, or in the District of Columbia, are so far citizens as to entitle them to the protection guaranteed to citizens of the United States in the Constitution, and to the shield of nationality abroad; but it is evident that they have not the political rights which are vested in citizens of the States. They are not constituents of any community in which is vested any sovereign power of government. Their position partakes more of the character of subjects than of citizens. They are subject to the laws of the United States, but have no voice in its management. If they are allowed to make laws, the validity of these laws is derived from the sanction of a Government in which they are not represented. Mere citizenship they may have, but the political rights of citizens they cannot enjoy until they are organized into a State, and admitted into the Union. [People v. De La Guerra, 40 Cal. 311, 342 (1870)]

    It is quite clear, then, that there is a citizenship of the United States and a citizenship of a State which are distinct from each other and which depend upon different characteristics or circumstances in the individual. [Slaughter House Cases, 83 U.S. 36, 16 Wall. 36][21 L.Ed. 394 (1873), emphasis added]

    That there is a citizenship of the United States and a citizenship of a state, and the privileges and immunities of one are not the same as the other is well established by the decisions of the courts of this country. The leading cases upon the subjects are those decided by the Supreme Court of the United States and reported in 16 Wall. 36, 21 L. Ed. 394, and known as the Slaughter House Cases. [K. Tashiro v. Jordan, 256 P. 545, 549 (1927)][affirmed 278 U.S. 123 (1928), emphasis added]

    A citizen of any one of the States of the union, is held to be, and called a citizen of the United States, although technically and abstractly there is no such thing. To conceive a citizen of the United States who is not a citizen of some one of the States, is totally foreign to the idea, and inconsistent with the proper construction and common understanding of the expression as used in the Constitution, which must be deduced from its various other provisions. The object then to be attained, by the exercise of the power of naturalization, was to make citizens of the respective States. [Ex Parte Knowles, 5 Cal. 300 (1855)] [emphasis added]

    A person who is a citizen of the United States is necessarily a citizen of the particular state in which he resides. But a person may be a citizen of a particular state and not a citizen of the United States. To hold otherwise would be to deny to the state the highest exercise of its sovereignty, -- the right to declare who are its citizens. [State v. Fowler, 41 La. Ann. 380, 6 S. 602 (1889)]

     -- Jim Prentice, Lehigh Acres     
    The laws of Congress in respect to those matters do not extend into the territorial limits of the states, but have force only in the District of Columbia, and other places that are within the exclusive jurisdiction of the national government. [Caha v. United States 152 U.S. 211 (1894)]

    Legislation of Congress, unless a contrary intent appears, is meant to apply only within territorial jurisdiction of the United States.
    Foley Bros. v. Filardo, 336 U.S. 281; 69 S.Ct. 575 (1949)

    Title 4 USC, Section 72 "All offices attached to the seat of government shall be exercised in the District of Columbia, and not elsewhere, except as otherwise expressly provided by law."; See also Article I, Section 8, Clause 17-- and -- Article IV, Section 3, cl. 2.

    I think it's time IRS was brought under contol, and began to follow the LAW, not the I.R. manual. The 16th amendment and the public employee tax act have nothing to do with the Private Sector people.

    We need to do two things: Get Obama OUT of our Country, and the IRS and their 'income' tax with him. Leave the People alone, WITH their whole paycheck, and watch the Country take off. In ten years we'll be where we were when Obumbum stole office. Then we'll move ahead, and in 20 we'll be Number One again.

    I do believe this to be true, the problem is that low level clerks in HR are responsible for new hires and if you do not grant permission to the employer to withhold taxes (by filling out a W-2 or W-4) they will make trouble for you. They say that the IRS will fine them, although, they never actually put it to the test.

    Businesses have been conned to work as bag men for the Federal Reserve. The primary purpose of tax withholding is to keep the money out of circulation -- you are paid with borrowed money and by sending it directly to the Federal Reserve (via the IRS -- look at the cancellation of the check on the back) it never is used as currency. This money is taken in advance, and if returned, it is returned without interest. The govt gets a free loan, money is kept from going into circulation, and taxes are forcibly taken before ever having a chance to be used as currency. Income taxes are to keep the middle class in its place, nothing more.

    "VOLUNTARY". That's a good one! Anyone who doesn't 'volunteer' quickly finds all accounts frozen or empty, their assets seized and the burden of proof that they DO NOT owe EVERYTHING...is on them.

    Independents within the middle class, exercising their right to Contract as a sovereign independent individual. It has been the intent of the IRS to " rub out " the very presence in industry, and conscience of the people to such a possibility of existence. Banksters with inflationary tactics have assured a braking point would and does come from time to time. Mad as Hell, an understatement to what has been done to the lively hoods, hopes and dreams of the Independent sovereign. Backed into a corner, the reckoning comes !! All very well planed out, which stirs the disdain and contempt held toward the IRS and Congress. Burn their house down, as they have destroyed, stolen and committed premeditated destruction of a once sacred way of life, held so dear, once upon a time, this great Nation founded upon Liberty and Freedom. Great comments !

    If the quote itself doesn't do it the responses from the people here surely makes one's eyes glaze over. The problem is the IRS utilizes kangaroo courts not real ones in these tax trials on people who try to assert their rights and to avoid paying taxes they do not owe on and your constitutional rights do not apply in these courts.

    What we are dealing with here is a criminal organization back by the power of a corrupt government, somebody should've shot Woodrow Wilson before he signed this damn amendment in the middle of the night.

    Mike, Pleasant Hill, tax courts are officially administrative hearings under the executive branch. Formally, an audit with procedures and nomenclature meant to confuse the tax payer as much as possible. Because it is not a judicial setting (uniquely an enforcement setting) you are considered guilty even if you prove yourself innocent. A tax court is there purely to find more evidence against you. The occupying statist theocracy infesting this land is a criminal endeavor meant to violate humanity as much as possible (the 2nd plank of the communist manifesto is a great example).
