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.
As noted above my question was what law makes me “liable” for Federal income taxes. Your letter states, “The obligation to pay the correct amount of tax …is mandatory as enacted by congress in the various public laws comprising the Internal Revenue Code.” So why didn’t you cite the law which was “enacted by congress” which crates “the obligation to pay” income taxes? The point is, I want to know what law makes me “liable” for income taxes and requires me “to pay” such a tax. This should no be too difficult for you to define, if such laws were “enacted by congress.” For example, in connection with the federal wagering tax, Code section 4401(c) says, “Each person who is engaged in the business of accepting wagers shall be liable for and shall pay he tax under this subchapter on all wagers placed by him.” Section 5703(a) and (b) states in connection with tobacco products, “The manufacturer ..of tobacco products shall be liable for the taxes imposed thereon by section 5701…(and)…Such taxes shall be paid on the basis of a return.” Therefore, please identify for me the statute “enacted by congress” that similarly states, “Those receiving income shall be liable for and shall pay an income tax,” or words to that effect.
Also, there seems to be a conflict within your letter. How can there be a “mandatory …obligation to pay” income taxes ,” if, as you say, “the income tax system is one of voluntary compliance” ? How can the payment of a tax be “mandatory” and “voluntary” at the same time? Are the payments of the federal wagering and tobacco taxes also based on “voluntary compliance”?
Therefore, I would appreciate your specific answers to these two questions.
1) What federal statutes specifically mandates the payment of income taxes, and
2) Are the federal wagering and tobacco taxes also based on “voluntary compliance”?
If not, how can some taxes be based on “voluntary compliance” and others, not?
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.
