Irwin Schiff has been filing "Zero Income Tax Returns" for the last 13 years and the Government has not charged
him with tax evasion for any of those years. Perhaps if former Congressman Jim Trafficant, Leona Helmsley, and
Pete Rose had filed "zero" returns, instead of the traditional returns they filed, they would not have been charged, convicted, or
jailed for tax evasion either.
That an entire nation of supposedly intelligent human beings could be so thoroughly hood winked, must rank as the greatest
and most spectacular hoax of all time, with the phenomenon of millions of Americans scurrying to IRS offices each April 15th
comparable to lemmings marching into the sea.
The Biggest Con
Irwin Schiff's first book, an economic classic, will give you a thorough understanding of economics and is guaranteed to make you an expert on the subject--even if you read nothing else! It will convince you that most American "economists" don't know what they are talking about, which is why this country is in such deep economic and financial trouble. It provides irrefutable proof of how the federal government has been continually undermining the American economy and forcing a lower standard of living on us all. The book covers many complex topics such as why all U.S. coin and currency is counterfeit, how the U.S. declared bankruptcy in 1971, how the government hides and doesn't report 90 percent of its debts, and the absurdity of its gross national product statistics. The Biggest Con explains this in Irwin Schiff's humorous and entertaining style.
"The single most important book on the status of the nation that I have ever read," said Howard Ruff, editor of The Ruff Times.
Soft cover, 359 pages.
We just learned that the IRS has started taking Mr. Schiff’s commissary money so he cannot buy tooth paste, a decent razor, candy or chips, across the counter medications or anything else not provided by his jailers. Additionally, because of those confiscations he cannot make any phone calls or buy stamps for letters!!
These evil people do not now nor did they take the commissary money of people like Jeffery Dahmer, Ted Bundy or the BTK killer ECT. who killed hundreds of people or any of the CEOs of companies who stole billions of dollars from their stockholders therein taking their retirement money away or, in our opinion, the worst of the lot, the countless elected government officials who were convicted for taking bribes.
This is an obvious attempt to torture Mr. Schiff whose only crime was pointing out the crimes of the IRS, the federal prosecutors and federal judges like Kent Dawson and prevent him from letting the world know about the crimes perpetrated against him and countless others. This also prevents Mr. Schiff from communicating with those patriots who are trying to help him with his appeal, which is unconstitutional.
How, in good conscience anyone can condone these actions by the criminals in the federal government is beyond us.
If there are any patriots left we urge you to contact your congressman and object to this unwarranted retribution which is tantamount to torture.
Irwin Schiff Railroaded Right to Slammer by Two-Bit Federal Judge Running Kanagaroo Las Vegas Court
The 77-year-old tax protestor being held without bond and in chains after being convicted on 14 counts, including conspiracy and income tax evasion. Trial observers say court proceedings looked like an episode of the "Three Stooges" with "Moe, Curly and Larry" prosecuting the case.
The jury is still out, as I write these words. Its verdict may be in by the time you read them, and there's a blog with the latest news--but that's okay because the point of this article is not to comment on the trial's outcome but to show what government had to do, in order try to silence an influential advocate of freedom. Its conclusion will be that government is wholly unfit to operate a justice system and entirely incapable of being constrained, e.g. by a constitution.
77-Year Old Schiff Being Tortured With Chain Shackles, Mistreatment
Imagine writing a book containing information so offensive and damaging to the government that the government prosecutes you for running a “fraudulent tax shelter” and the book is subsequently banned by a federal judge - without the government ever citing a single sentence that is false, misleading or fraudulent.
Imagine having your business raided and records seized using a court-sanctioned search warrant that fails to aver any specific law that you have violated.
Imagine the raid is conducted by a platoon of well-armed federal officers that have no delegated or statutory authority to conduct such a seizure. Click here for the full story

A distressing update from Mike Golden after he visits prison and finds Irwin's health may be failing.
This is from Mike Golden:
The only one who was handcuffed in the jail visitation room was Irwin, the rest of the inmates had both hands free. --- When he (Irwin) entered the room, he was looking very pale, he looked very wobbly, he looked absolutely exhausted. This man I have known for quite sometime now… he is normally upbeat, laughing, joking, cracking smiles… Never have I seen this man in this condition. He looked like he was walking death. --- The guard finally came in and released one of his hands, only one, and this is 77 year old man. --- Irwin asked me to get hold of a marshal and ask to give Irwin medical attention. Irwin has a high temperature all day. He has been freezing all day, he repeatedly request to have an extra blanket. They denied him all day , they denied him medical attention. --- He has asked for assistance from the medical team and they repeatedly denied him. --- This man’s condition right now is nothing less than grave. --- It appears to me he is in a high state of delirium either from the high temperature or from this exhaustion. --- Irwin says: “Mike, I am exhausted, I can’t go any further.” Irwin is just about to fall off his chair… --- JURORS: SHAME ON YOU, SHAME ON YOU PEOPLE that did this to this nice person who had nothing but love and concern over this welfare of this country!!! SHAME ON YOU PEOPLE! You people were bought out, sold out, and you condemned the man to death.
I just wanted to tell you that your post today was a stroke of genius. I was heart-breaking but if it doesn't wake people up nothing will. To that end I want to figure out how we as a group can get organized. Cindy was talking about sending out writs of habeas corpus and she was talking about who to send them to. I think if we can create a very organized list of documents and recipients for those documents and then flood them with protests and documents we might be able to help. I have been receiving emails from this website for some time now and I think that they way that they have it set up is beautiful. It's clean, quick and effective. Check it out and let me know what I can do help. I' going to forward this to Angela and I was also curious when your birthdays are sent you mentioned it the other day that they are the same. Thanks you both so much for everything you have done and are doing... Ian
Here is the sight. Please check it out just because of the way that it is organized.
The fact that a Federal Jury has found Irwin Schiff guilty should not be a surprise to anyone.
Since the day the trial started, the judge who presided on the trial, US District Court Judge Ken Dawson, was not shy to show before the jury, his bias and antagonism against the defendant displaying a partiality never before seen.
In a jury trial the presiding judge should act as referee watching out that the defendant's rights are not violated and that the jurors are given all the evidence necessary to make an intelligent decision based on the facts and nothing but the facts.
In the Schiff case the judge acted more like a prosecutor by denying the most essential rights and sustaining almost every single objection made by the prosecution and overruled almost all the objections made by the defense. ...
As you are contemplating whether or how much you want to contribute to Mr. Schiff’s appeal please consider the following.
How much has Mr. Schiff’s information saved you?
How much could it cost you if Mr. Schiff’s conviction is not overturned therein allowing the government Carte Blanch to refer to every illegal thing done to Mr. Schiff before and during the trial as precedent setting evidence that what they do is okay and what you claim in your defense has been found lacking in merit?
In that regard I believe if Mr. Schiff’s conviction is overturned it will open the flood gates and millions of scaredy cats will join this movement which will end the income tax for good and put all those friendly IRS agents of a job.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE
IRWIN SCHIFF AND TWO ASSOCIATES INDICTED FOR TAX FRAUD
WASHINGTON D.C. - Eileen J. O’Connor, Assistant Attorney General for the Tax Division, United States Department of Justice;
Daniel G. Bogden, U.S. Attorney for the District of Nevada; and Nancy Jardini, Chief, Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation
Division announced today that in Las Vegas, Nevada, a federal grand jury returned a thirty-three (33) count indictment charging Irwin
Schiff, Cynthia Neun, and Lawrence Cohen with conspiracy (18 U.S.C. §371), and aiding and assisting in the preparation and filing of
fraudulent federal income tax returns (26 U.S.C. §7206(2)). Messrs. Schiff and Cohen are also charged with income tax evasion
(26 U.S.C. §7201). Ms. Neun is also charged with willfully failing to file federal income tax returns (26 U.S.C. §7203), Social Security
disability fraud (42 U.S.C. §408) and theft of government property (18 U.S.C. §641).
This is his 6 page reply, but it contains the info. 1)The Secretary is authorized: 26 USC 6201(a) which is supported by the
definitions at 26 USC 7701(a)(11)and 26 USC 7701(a)(12) AND 2)Delegations of authority must be published: 44 USC 1505 (Chap 15).
Since the government does not want the American public to discover the truth about how it illegally enforces the payment
of income taxes (and how the public might protect itself) it persuaded U.S. District Court Judge, Lloyd D. George to enjoin me
from selling “The Federal Mafia:How the Government Illegally Imposes and Unlawfully Collects Income Taxes" (and presumably other
information as well). The following is the first page of Judge George’s 35 page Order. To fully appreciate the utter
lawlessness of his Order, be sure to read the first paragraph of page 34 in which Judge George enjoins me from alleging
some 6 specific “positions” in connection with income taxes. Then read the pleadings I filed in connection with my criminal
and civil case involving these "positions," especially those pleadings involving the meaning of “income.”
If you're worrying about income taxes you think you owe the government - stop worrying because legally you don't "owe"
the government one dime, since there's no law requiring anyone to pay income tax. It doesn't matter if you earned millions
in salaries, fees, commissions, gambling and lottery winnings etc., and additional millions in stock and other kinds of
trading profits. For income tax purposes, you can legally report "zero" income and pay no income taxes regardless of
how much you might have earned.
In 1986, 99.5 million Americans were tricked into filing and paying federal income taxes when legally; they didn't have to
do either. If this statement shocks you, it is only because you and the rest of the nation have been thoroughly deceived by
the federal government (with federal courts playing the key role), and an army of accountants, lawyers, and other tax preparers.
All of these have a vested interest in keeping you ignorant concerning the real nature of federal income taxes.
