.

Commentary – Constitutionality

.

The bottom line is that challenges to the income tax based on the Constitution are bogus, and demonstrably so.

.

THE LAW

.

THE LAW that makes the average American liable to pay income taxes is in Section 1 of the Internal Revenue Code, 26 U.S.C. § 1. Congress put THE LAW right up front so that nobody could miss it (well, nobody who was actually interested in knowing, anyhow).

.

Section 1. Tax Imposed

There is hereby imposed on the taxable income of [various categories, such as married individuals, single individuals, etc., omitted for sake of this discussion] a tax determined in accordance with the following table: [table omitted for brevity].

.

Section 61. Gross Income Defined

.

.

(1) Compensation for services, including fees, commissions, fringe benefits, and similar items;

.

Section 63. Taxable Income Defined

.

(a) In general – [T]he term “taxable income” means gross income minus the deductions allowed by this chapter (other than the standard deduction).

.

Commentary – The Law

.

It is that simple! This is why no accredited legal or tax scholar worldwide thinks that the bogus theory “that there is no law making the average American liable for the payment of income taxes” is anymore than a bad joke.

.

The Scam Artists and Reality Deniers have for decades tried to get any legal or tax scholar interested in their kooky reasons for not paying taxes, but none have bitten.

.

It is also the reason that ALL the courts in the United States, included the United States Supreme Court, have routinely characterized tax protestors’ arguments as frivolous, and have hit tax protestors with huge penalties up to $25,000 for making their stupid arguments.

.

All the courts in the United States have also routinely affirmed the convictions of tax protestors (a very small handful have won acquittals in their criminal trials, by convincing the jury that they were too stupid to understand that they had to pay taxes – all those tax protestors remained 100% liable to pay their taxes).

.

No tax protestor has ever won a court case to avoid their income taxes, never. It is not because of any kookie conspiracy theories; it is simply because tax protestors are WRONG.
