Testimony of Dwight E. Davis, Head of Alcohol & Tobacco Tax Division, IRS

Testimony of Dwight E. Avis, Head of the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax Division of the Bureau of Internal Revenue

“Income Tax is 100% Voluntary”

Given before a Subcommittee of the Committee on Ways and Means, House of Representatives, Internal Revenue Investigation, dated Tuesday, February 3, 1953, page 13:

Let me point this out now. Your income tax is 100 percent voluntary tax, and your liquor tax is 100 percent enforced tax. Now the situation is as different as day and night. Consequently, your same rules just will not apply.

Reply to IRS Claim: You Are Required to File Form 1040

IRS Claims that Most Americans

are required to file Form 1040.

Is that necessarily the truth?

In December 2013, an individual, we’ll call him Joe, received a CP59 Notice or Letter from the IRS asking him why he had not filed a tax return for the year 2012.

Joe sent an answer to the IRS Chief Counsel, copy to the local Revenue Officer. The Revenue Officer replied, stating, in relevant part, the following:

This letter is sent in response to your letter to me dated 12/31/2013 titled “request for Determination of Tax-Filing Status for the year 2012.” In the letter you state several times you would like to know if you are required to file a Form 1040 tax return for the year 2012 given that you earned in excess of $ __________ during that year. To answer your question, yes you are required to file a Form 1040 for the tax year 2012 and pay any tax due as a consequence of the earned income. If you do not file a return for this, or any other year where you had taxable income, IRS may file a return on your behalf.

Joe then sent a letter in response to the Revenue Officer. Here is what Joe said about the letter which he (Joe) sent back to the Revenue Officer:

I can’t tell you the kind of satisfaction I feel when mailing such a response to these criminal dolts.

It’s what I tried to do w/every past letter.

Unfortunately, I’m not any good at the power-game.

Here is what I wrote back to Joe:

1. You’re agreeing to follow his advice, with reasonable, court-required conditions;

2. You’re polite in your language, so as not to stoke his ire;

3. You do not employ any frivolous issues;

4. You return your answer timely;

5. You invite a reasonable reply from him;

6. You ask for information required by the Merrill Court;

7. You ask for information which he is required to produce;

8. yet will not be able to produce;

9. You have a very nice paper-trail for a judge and a jury, should it come to that, which will appear to them as reasonable;

10. Information which, if not produced now and will not be able to be produced at trial, will weigh powerfully in your favor;

11. All w/o arguing the law in any way, except, of course, for your good-faith attempt to comply with the Merrill Court’s admonition.

For any who receive a CP59 Notice/Letter from the IRS or a response, such as Joe received, you may want to look at the reply Joe sent to the Revenue Officer.

Where Are the Constitutional Limitations on the Taxing Powers of Congress Located, Today?

If you were to go into court, today, and raise the issue that the IRS had used its computer systems and tax codes, tax transaction codes, and other hard-to-understand processes, the result of which was the imposition of tax liabilities and filing duties that you believe are unconstitutional, would you want to be able to explain these issues in language that the court is familiar with and thereby demonstrate that your right to due process had been violated?

Tax Troubles? IRS Troubles? There May Be a Way Out!

I have posted a new eBook wherein I explain, in considerable detail, how the IRS has used deceit in order to trap so many Americans into

Tax Troubles and IRS Troubles!

I have also shown how

There May Be a Way Out!

The way out may not come easily, but I feel quite certain that we are on the verge of developing the proper methods to enable folks to have a fighting chance of exposing the fraud present within the files that the IRS maintains on each and every American “taxpayer.”

I am certain that you are fully aware that the courts will not permit any single “taxpayer” to win a case whereby the entire tax system will be destroyed.

However, the courts have permitted “taxpayers” to prevail when they can demonstrate to the courts that there are factual errors within the records that the IRS maintains in order to support and justify seizure of wages, bank accounts, Social Security payments, homes, businesses and the like.

Tax Troubles? IRS Troubles? There May Be a Way Out! is designed to provide you with the knowledge required to understand the IRS processes used to falsify your records and, armed with that knowledge, prepare you for the follow-on Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) Requests you will need to submit in order to gain access to the fraudulent entries contained in you IRS tax files.

If you like what we are doing on this site, I hope you will consider subscribing (on the right side of this page) and “liking” us on the social media buttons below this post. The more Americans we have armed with the knowledge we are presenting here, the better chance we all have of bringing to the courts and to our fellow Americans, who sit on juries in tax cases, the Truth about Income Taxes in Plain English!

As Benjamin Franklin said, at the signing of the Declaration of Independence:

We must all hang together, or assuredly we shall all hang separately!
