Is there a law that requires a person to pay a federal income tax?

Asked by: tmoran 854 views YA Discussion

Second question, Is there a law that requires a person to file income tax returns?
I am during a little research on this matter and asking these questions here on yahoo is part of that research; so anyone who may know for a FACT that there is or is not a law requiring this please provide the federal law that says such.
Thanks much,
Tony :)
Dear Rob, I did not say anything about not paying taxes. I named ONE and only ONE tax please read question thoroughly thanks
Dear rick, although many are indeed in prison for just that, there are actually several cases where people have been found not guilty and also released from prison due to the inability of a judge or an irs agent to provide the federal law that states such…

    Oh yea. If you have the slightest doubt about the wording or the enforcement of the law, you can visit people in prison for evading it.

      “There are three points that are important,” he told WND. “There’s no law making the average working man liable [for income taxes], there’s no law or regulation that allows the IRS to contend that earnings are 100 percent profit received in exchange for nothing, and the right to earn a living through any lawful occupation is a constitutionally protected fundamental right, and it is exempt from taxation.”

      Spokesman Robert Marvin in Washington’s IRS office told WND the Internal Revenue Code provides for taxation on salaries or wages, but when pressed for a specific citation, or constitutional provision, he said, “I can’t comment.”

    Why is that people do half-time research and conclude from idiots that they have the answer.

    The IRS has hundreds of pages refuting (with case law) every argument that claims you don’t have to pay taxes.

    Doesn’t the reality that most of the people claiming you don’t have to pay are either in jail or actually do pay mean something to you?

    Your court case references are wrong. The individuals may have been aquited of being ignorant of the law, but they STILL owed the money.

    The 13th amendment to the constitution allows for taxes. The income tax form is how it is implemented.

    Yes

    Title 26 – Internal Revenue Code

    The people that say that there is no law are call “tax deniers” by the IRS and “tax protesters” by accountants and lawyers. While their theories vary, they all have one thing common. Not one of them as ever been victorious in court and gotten out of paying their taxes.

    A few of them (Vernice Kuglin, Tommy Cryer, etc.) have been found not guilty of criminal failure to file and fraud charges by basically claiming that they did not understand the law. HOWEVER, they still had to pay their tax bills plus thousands of dollars in penalties and interest. NO ONE has ever been found not liable for taxes because the IRS could not prove that law exists.

    Google “Ed and Elaine Brown”. Ed is still screaming “show me the law”…….from prison.

    Yes, there is a law. Inability to find the law does not mean that it does not exist. It just means that it is well-hidden.

    The laws are buried deep in “Subtitle F – Procedure and Administration” of the Internal Revenue Code, which makes them hard to find.

    I found the laws you requested:

    1. The law that says that, if a person must file a return, then that person also must pay is:

    -CITE-
    26 USC Sec. 6151 01/03/2012 (112-90)

    -EXPCITE-
    TITLE 26 – INTERNAL REVENUE CODE
    Subtitle F – Procedure and Administration
    CHAPTER 62 – TIME AND PLACE FOR PAYING TAX
    Subchapter A – Place and Due Date for Payment of Tax

    -HEAD-
    Sec. 6151. Time and place for paying tax shown on returns

    -STATUTE-
    (a) General rule
    Except as otherwise provided in this subchapter, when a return of
    tax is required under this title or regulations, the person
    required to make such return shall, without assessment or notice
    and demand from the Secretary, pay such tax to the internal revenue
    officer with whom the return is filed, and shall pay such tax at
    the time and place fixed for filing the return (determined without
    regard to any extension of time for filing the return).
    (b) Exceptions

    2. The law that says that, if a person’s tax “liability” is not zero, then the person must file is:

    -CITE-
    26 USC PART I – RECORDS, STATEMENTS, AND SPECIAL RETURNS 01/03/2012 (112-90)

    -EXPCITE-
    TITLE 26 – INTERNAL REVENUE CODE
    Subtitle F – Procedure and Administration
    CHAPTER 61 – INFORMATION AND RETURNS
    Subchapter A – Returns and Records
    PART I – RECORDS, STATEMENTS, AND SPECIAL RETURNS

    -HEAD-
    PART I – RECORDS, STATEMENTS, AND SPECIAL RETURNS

    -MISC1-
    Sec.
    6001. Notice or regulations requiring records, statements,
    and special returns.

    -End-

    -CITE-
    26 USC Sec. 6001 01/03/2012 (112-90)

    -EXPCITE-
    TITLE 26 – INTERNAL REVENUE CODE
    Subtitle F – Procedure and Administration
    CHAPTER 61 – INFORMATION AND RETURNS
    Subchapter A – Returns and Records
    PART I – RECORDS, STATEMENTS, AND SPECIAL RETURNS

    -HEAD-
    Sec. 6001. Notice or regulations requiring records, statements, and
    special returns

    -STATUTE-
    Every person liable for any tax imposed by this title, or for the
    collection thereof, shall keep such records, render such
    statements, make such returns, and comply with such rules and
    regulations as the Secretary may from time to time prescribe.
    Whenever in the judgment of the Secretary it is necessary, he may
    require any person, by notice served upon such person or by
    regulations, to make such returns, render such statements, or keep
    such records, as the Secretary deems sufficient to show whether or
    not such person is liable for tax under this title. The only
    records which an employer shall be required to keep under this
    section in connection with charged tips shall be charge receipts,
    records necessary to comply with section 6053(c), and copies of
    statements furnished by employees under section 6053(a).

    -SOURCE-
    (Aug. 16, 1954, ch. 736, 68A Stat. 731; Pub. L. 94-455, title XIX,
    Sec. 1906(b)(13)(A), Oct. 4, 1976, 90 Stat. 1834; Pub. L. 95-600,
    title V, Sec. 501(a), Nov. 6, 1978, 92 Stat. 2878; Pub. L. 97-248,
    title III, Sec. 314(d), Sept. 3, 1982, 96 Stat. 605.)

    3. The law that says who has a tax liability is too long for to post all of it here. It begins:

    “CITE-
    26 USC Sec. 1 01/02/2006

    -EXPCITE-
    TITLE 26 – INTERNAL REVENUE CODE
    Subtitle A – Income Taxes
    CHAPTER 1 – NORMAL TAXES AND SURTAXES
    Subchapter A – Determination of Tax Liability
    PART I – TAX ON INDIVIDUALS

    -HEAD-
    Sec. 1. Tax imposed

    Yes there’s a law that allows the collection of income tax.

    And your comment about people being released from prison because the judge or IRS couldn’t provide a law that states such is just plain bunk. If you want to believe the nonsense than some people post on the internet, go ahead, but that doesn’t make it true. People have been found not guilty because it hasn’t been proven that they deliberately broke the laws. But not what you state.
