You Probably Spend More On Taxes Than Food, Clothing, and Housing Combined

Are you familiar with Tax Freedom Day? No, it isn’t the day after April 15th. According to the Tax Foundation, it’s the day of the year when the average American has earned enough money to pay for all the income taxes they will accumulate throughout the rest of the year. In 2016, that day will fall on April 24th. Or put another way, if you work during all 52 weeks of the year, more than 16 weeks of your labor are going to the IRS. According to the Tax Foundation’s annual report, Americans are going to spend a total of $5 trillion on federal, state, and local taxes this year, which amounts to about 31% of our nation’s income. That’s almost $1 trillion more than we spend on food, clothing, and housing put together. Tax Freedom Day happens to fall one day earlier this year than it did last […] Read More

Wait, We Don’t Have to Pay Federal Income Tax?

Have you ever heard that the IRS operates on 90% bluff? This is ex-IRS agent Sherry Jackson. Listen to her discuss how the IRS really works. If you haven’t heard this before, it just might blow your mind… You may have seen Sherry interviewed in Aaron Russo’s film “Freedom to Fascism“. Russo, to paraphrase, said you aren’t technically obligated to pay federal taxes on your personal income, but you probably should anyway, you know, since the IRS basically operates like the mafia… Delivered by The Daily Sheeple Contributed by The Daily Sheeple of www.TheDailySheeple.com.

Yelp Just Announced It Will Start Letting You Write Reviews About the Government

Even though no one is ever pleased with the service they receive from federal agencies like the TSA or the IRS, there is no real recourse for anyone who is dissatisfied with their service. This is because government agencies are monopolies by design, meaning they do not have to worry about losing customers to another company. Their customers are essentially forced to do business with them because it is illegal for people to offer alternatives. Nothing has changed about that arrangement at all, except now you can complain about it on Yelp! That’s right, the popular app that allows people to rate the service they receive from private businesses is now allowing users to make comments about federal agencies. Apparently, this move is actually being welcomed by politicians, but it is highly possible they have no clue what they are in for. Yelp released an official statement this week […] Read More

New IRS process for recommending nonprofit audits draws critiques

Relatively inexperienced IRS managers could take the reins of gatekeeping panels with significant sway over dark money groups under the terms of a memo sent to agency managers last week and obtained by OpenSecrets Blog. The panels determine whether non-profits involved in political activity are called out for audits. Effective July 17, a team of three IRS employees will make up Political Activities Referral Committees (PARCs), which are tasked with “[recommending] referrals for audit in an impartial and unbiased manner,” according to the memo. To refer an audit takes a majority vote of the three committee members. Those three will be selected from a pool of manager-level employees (civil service grade GS-14 equivalents) at random. That means the PARCs will likely consist of workers with little experience administering exempt organizations, said Marcus Owens, a Washington, D.C.-based lawyer and former head of the IRS Exempt Organizations division. “I analogize it as, an […] Read More

7.5 million Americans paid Obamacare penalty – IRS

  2014 was the first year Americans have had to deal with tax credits and penalties pertaining to the Affordable Care Act (ACA). Approximately 7.5 million taxpayers reported paying a total of $1.5 billion in penalties. More Americans paid the penalty for not having healthcare coverage in 2014 than the tax authorities originally estimated, the IRS commissioner confirmed in a letter to members of Congress. The vast majority of US taxpayers had qualifying health coverage. Following “numerous requests” from members of Congress, Internal Revenue Service commissioner John Koskinen sent out a four-page letter with the data the agency has collected so far, after processing about 135 million out of the estimated 150 million tax returns for 2014. Out of those returns, Koskinen wrote, approximately 7.5 million taxpayers reported a total of $1.5 billion in “individual shared responsibility payments,” as the penalty for not having qualifying health insurance is called […] Read More

REPORT: IRS Continues SWAT Raids for Evasion While Hundreds of Agents Avoid Paying Any Taxes at All

Washington, D.C. – The Associated Press has reported that over 1,600 IRS employees have willfully committed tax evasion in a 10-year span; most still employed in spite of a 1998 law calling for termination in such cases. Even worse, it has been reported that many of the tax-evading agents were active in enforcing the federal tax laws they have broken. The agents found many ways to evade taxes, including “improperly claiming dependents, repeated failure to file timely tax returns, and claiming a tax credit for first-time homebuyers when the worker didn’t buy a house.” While only 25% of the willful violators were fired, the report revealed that some of these agents received “promotions, raises and bonuses” after being caught breaking the laws they enforce. In response to the revelations, Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, chairman of the Senate Finance Committee stated, “It is crucial that IRS employees are held to […] Read More

“Income Tax Is Government Theft” and IRS Is a Lawless Thief

Yes, it is once again tax time. Chances are there have been a few grumblings this time a year in your home or one nearby concerning everyone’s favorite villain – the IRS. From the missing emails of Lois Lerner and using the tax system to target Tea Party protesters to ever increasing debt loads due to expanding government, crony capitalism and general rampant corruption, few if anyone beliefs the tax authority is a beneficial institution. PJ Media issued a three-part series – a Death by Taxes video panel hosted by Bill Whittle wherein he interviews the notorious tax reformer Grover Norquist as well as Curtis Dubay and Terry Jones on the systematic problems of the progressive income tax, and how it has come to so much ruin. The program is well worth watching. It addresses the underlying questions of IRS taxation as sanctioned government theft. In the opening minutes, […] Read More

Did You Know the IRS and the Fed are Private Corporations?

Pao L. Chang, Guest Most people living in the USA have no clue that the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) is a foreign agency. To be more accurate, the IRS is a foreign private corporation of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and is the private “army” of the Federal Reserve (Fed). Its main goal is to make sure the American people pay their tax and be good little slaves. Evidence showing that the IRS isn’t part of the United States government Like the Federal Reserve (Fed), the IRS isn’t part of the United States government. Instead, it is a collection agency of the privately owned Fed. As published at ModernHistoryProject.org. The Internal Revenue Service is considered to be a Bureau of the Department of the Treasury; however, like the Federal Reserve, it is not part of the Federal Government (Diversified Metal Products v. IRS et al. CV-93-405E-EJE U.S.D.C.D.I.; Public Law […] Read More

Obama Secret Service Agent: “It’s Worse Than People Know… And I’m Not Trying To Scare You Either”

By Mac Slavo SHTF plan You may have your suspicions about what’s going on behind closed doors at the White House. But according to one of President Obama’s former body guards it’s much worse than we can even imagine. Dan Bongino has protected numerous Presidents over his career, including President Obama. He has been within ear-shot of many a discussion in the Oval Office, but up until this administration has stayed out of the lime light. Apparently, however, the activities of this administration are so abhorrent that he could no longer keep quiet. Bongino is so upset with what he witnessed that he is now running for Congress because he feels it’s the only way to take America back from the sycophants who have made every effort to enrich themselves with money and power at the expense of the American people. How bad is it? We’re in a lot of […] Read More

2013: DHS Battens Down The Hatches: “This Could Be All Hell Breaks Loose Day”

By Mac Slavo SHTF plan A few weeks ago we saw what happens when the Electronic Benefit Transfer system is threatened in any way. When access to food stamps went offline for just a few hours, the masses began to panic in what were essentially isolated hot spots where law & order totally broke down. This Friday, because of guidelines set forth in the American and Recovery Investment Act, the 48 million Americans receiving nutritional food assistance from the government are going to see cuts to their monthly distributions. According to the USDA, the average monthly food benefit for an American family is about $272. Come November 1st, that will be reduced by $36 – or about 13%. Now, that may not seem like a big number, until you consider that the people depending on these distributions are already struggling to put food on the table and keep a roof over their […] Read More

That I was unaware that a completed, signed, and submitted “Form 1040” or “income tax return” and a “W-4” “Employee’s Withholding Allowance Certificate”, the authorization document that allows an employer to withhold a worker’s money from his pay, are voluntarily executed instruments which could be used as prima facie evidence against me in criminal trials and civil proceedings to show that I had voluntarily waived my constitutionally secured rights and that I had voluntarily subjected myself to the federal income/excise tax, to the provisions of the Internal Revenue Code, and to the authority of the Internal Revenue Service (hereafter referred to as the IRS) by signing and thereby affirming under penalty of perjury that I was in effect […] Read More

2004: The IRS has an Income Tax Problem

January 19, 2004 The IRS has an Income Tax problem. Tens of millions of Americans no longer file the form 1040. Why is that? Well, besides the fact that government consumes 40 percent of the fruits of our labor and people sometimes have to make a choice between feeding their families or feeding Uncle Sam; people are tired of IRS abuses, lack of candor about the law and the need for true due process when American¹s interact with the IRS. The greatest abuse being the IRS’s and our elected officials refusal to tell the people what law makes them liable to pay the Individual Income tax. This silence on the part of our elected officials is responsible for the mood of distrust and ever growing suspicion of government at all levels. This is exactly what the IRS hoped to avoid when it came out with the kinder, gentler version of the IRS […] Read More
