3.  How can I become untaxed?  The term "untaxed" is a very generic term which means different things to different people.  Most people understand the term to equate to not filing income tax returns and stop paying income taxes.  Quite simply, to "untax" yourself stop filing tax returns and paying income taxes.  If you wish to stop filing, you simply do so, however, not paying income taxes is something quite different.  Because most employers simply believe, without knowing, that they are required to withhold your money from your paycheck for income tax purposes.  It is difficult to overcome their ignorance and fear and convince them to stop withholding your money for income tax purposes.  So, becoming "untaxed" may not be as easy as you have been led to believe.   However, this does not mean we simply quit fighting against an ever increasing tyrannical government.  Free Enterprise Society Services and its programs are designed to educate and assist you regarding the various aspects of the income tax law and the application of that law.  Until you have an understanding of the law and its application you will not be successful in your battle against the income tax and the IRS.  If you want to be "untaxed" study the law and then apply and defend the law and your position.

Uncertainties of the Income Tax
(Courts At War with Themselves)

by Larry Becraft, Attorney

For several years now, a variety of high public officials have openly declared that the federal income tax laws are incredibly complex and need to be either substantially revised or scrapped.   But after making such statements, these officials invariably fail to identify what  specific parts of  the tax laws suffer from this condition, choosing instead to conceal them. Are the objectionable parts of the federal tax code secretly and quietly discussed behind closed Congressional committee doors? If they are, why doesn't someone inform the American public of these deficiencies so that they may likewise participate in this debate? Is it possible that it is the major and not various minor features of the tax laws which are complex, even uncertain? Is it possible that these major features are so fundamentally flawed that they simply cannot be repaired? If so, what is the legal consequence of this complexity?
