Your Wages are NOT lawful "income."


Your Wages are NOT lawful “income.”

Monday, February 9, 2015


Your wages are NOT lawful “Income!”

The IRS has been under fire in recent months regarding corruption on various levels.  It is bad enough the lamestream media is ignoring the scandals that are exposed, but the single greatest fraud by the IRS that everyone is ignoring is the IRS’ claim that American’s wages, salary and compensation for services is actual lawful “income.”  This is a great lie that has been ongoing for over 100 years.  Original intent of Congress and supported by the U.S. Supreme Court and others, clearly reveal that personal wages and such were NEVER originally intended to be classified as “income” which could be taxed by the Federal Government.

This fraud has cost Americans trillions of dollars over the past 100 years, and is continuing… but many people are waking up to this lie and are taking steps to remove themselves from this system, using the laws and court cases themselves.  The topic of how the IRS is deceiving Americans covers a host of provable lies involving purposely deceptive language in the code itself, and, of course, their usual fearmongering and propaganda tactics.  (In fact, the IRS has NO lawful authority in the States or over private citizens.  That is for another story which will shock you).

This article will address just the element of what income is and is not.  The below material is taken from a U.S. Supreme Court case which was filed as part of Case # No. 12-6169, which they ignored, including their own standing and never overturned cases.  There is a lot of supporting documentation on this, and much greater fraud, which will empower you to begin challenging the IRS as more and more people are doing.  Keep in mind that the IRS and 9 other courts also completely ignored this evidence, and the IRS played their usual unlawful games in responding to the allegations in the other federal courts.

Surprisingly, in the U.S. Supreme Court, the IRS waived its right to respond, which in any court in the country, is a default under Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, Rule 55.  This was brought to the Supreme Court’s attention, and they stated, “we don’t do that here.”  How convenient.  In any case it is still a lawful  default.  The question one should ask is (why would they waive their right to respond, if they are lawfully right?)

We need more and more people challenging the IRS’ legal standing, and choosing to get out of their corrupt system… of course, through taking the right steps.

U.S. Supreme Court Case # No. 12-6169 challenge question as to “what is income.”

Question 2 discussion:  Over the decades, since the early 1900s, the definition for what is called “income” has been distorted from original intent, and what was well known by the Courts, Congress and the People. Respondent (IRS)has consistently claimed that “income” includes wages, salaries and compensation for services.

However, this “interpretive regulation” is trying to “make income of that which is not income,” according to the 16th Amendment.  Helvering (1).

When challenged with this question, Respondent has provided nothing in response but hearsay and presumption, which is not evidence (A.C. Aukerman (2); Del Vecchio (3); New York (4). Presumption is not “a means of escape from constitutional restrictions” (Heiner (5). “Presumption” does not replace the burden of proof or rebuttal.

Respondent claims that “all that comes in” as wages, salary or compensation for service is “income according to the proper definition” of what it classifies as “gross income” and is subject to its taxation scheme, contrary to Doyle (6) in defining “income.” Originally, “income” was classified as “gains and profits” from “corporate activity” (Merchants (7), unearned wealth or assets arising from the “source” of the lawful “income” (45 Congressional Record. 4420-4423, (8).

Precedent shows that lawful “income” is “the gain derived from or through the sale or conversion of capital assets: from labor or from both combined” (Taft (9). What defines income “must have the essential feature of gain to the recipient” (Conner, (10) ; U.S.C.A. (11).

For Respondent to consider wages as all “gain” or “profit” is to distort the definition of income. This Court stated it did not accept the idea of a tax on occupations and labor (Pollock (12).

Income was clearly classified as “gains and profits,” which “limit the meaning of” income. Income was not “everything that comes in” (Southern Pacific (13). It was understood to be a “tax on the yearly profits arising from property, professions, trades, and offices” (Black’s Law (14). Respondent claims that wages are “income” and that “deriving” income as the 16th Amendment states equals the wages one receives from work, yet the Courts have clearly stated that one does not “derive” income through work (Edwards (15).

In matter of fact, there is “no material difference” between Petitioner’s, or any American’s, labor and what he receives as wages. Thus, there is no lawful “income” (profit). (Material difference is discussed thoroughly in Cottage (16) People’s labor is merely “exchanged” for money (Coppage (17).

Labor is property (Butchers’ Union Co.(18); Slaughter House (19) and is like “a tree; income is the fruit; labour is a tree; income the fruit; capital, the tree; income the fruit” (Waring (20). Selling labor is no different from selling goods (Adkins (21). Wages and salaries for labor represent the conversion of property but realize no gain in that mere conversion. Labor, being “property,” is the tree from which “income” or “gain” can be “derived,” if it is used for that purpose, but for Respondent to claim it can tax the whole “tree” (wages) as “profit” is tantamount to claiming limbs of the tree are always “profit” and removing them, limiting any hope of fruit—true “income,” or “gain,” from those limbs—or more lawful income to government, and not impoverish citizens.

Recognition of the inherent elements of wages and personal costs to produce labor is vital. It is patently unjust, unconscionable and unfair to force people to offer up all their wages as pure “profit” when there are ample “costs” related to the production of labor. “The freedom and right to earn a living through any lawful occupation is exempt from taxation by the federal government.” (Grosjean (22); Coppage (17).

In 1939, “only 3.9% of the population” of the United States were covered by the income tax . . . only a small portion of the population” Treasury Department’s Division of Tax Research (23).

How can that be when far more than 3.9% of Americans in 1939 provided labor or services for wages? That is because wages were not then, and are not today, lawful “income,” and only 3.9% of the population in 1939 were wealthy enough to actually have true “income” (unearned wealth, or a corporate profit) or income “derived
from” their principal, or savings).

The term “income” was never meant to include principal, or what are wages, as there was a clear “distinction between income and principal” (1913 Congressional Record (24).  This Court has also always made a clear distinction between “profit” and “wages.” Wages were not “profit” and could not be taxed. U.S. v. Balard (25).

Income is “not a wage or compensation for any type of labor” (Staples (26). “Reasonable compensation for labor or services rendered is not profit” (Laureldale Cemetery (27).

People of the early 1900s understood that the “new system” of taxation would not involve wages or salaries as “an income” (Gov. A.E. Wilson on the Income Tax (28). The right to work and receive wages for labor “cannot be taxed as privilege” (Jack Cole(29); Coppage (17).

Respondent’s own code (1939) stated in Section 22 GROSS INCOME:

(a) “Gross income includes gains, profits, and income derived from salaries, wages, or compensation for personal service . . .”

Gains, profit and income are redundant terms and confuse the lawful definition of what a “profit” is because it is the same thing as “gain,” or “income.” They all mean the same thing. Defining it in 1939, Section 22 shows there was a clear difference between “profits” and “wages.”

If “gains, profit and income” are synonymous with “salaries, wages, or compensation,” why state “derived from”? One does not “derive” income “from” a wage if they lawfully mean the same thing. If wages are income already, why use the term “derived from”?

Gross “income” includes gains, profits and income “derived from” salaries, wages or compensation for personal services, and “salaries, wages or compensation for personal service are not to be taxed as an entirety unless in their entirety they are gains, profits and income” (Lucas (30). It should also be noted that “gross income” also includes that which is derived from a corporate profit, or unearned wealth, as elsewhere argued, but something conspicuously missing from the definition.

The wages Petitioner or any American makes cannot be counted in their entirety as a “profit,” for this makes labor worth nothing (zero basis for labor costs to wage earned), which is nothing more than slavery.

A direct tax on wages is a tax that diminishes the source of potential “income” and has been declared unconstitutional. An indirect tax on wages is unconstitutional because an indirect tax is a tax on privilege; i.e., wealth-producing unearned income, or in making a corporate profit, neither of which Petitioner (or most Americans receiving wages) is involved with. Lawful taxation leaves the source (wealth, property or limbs growing from the tree) producing the “income” undiminished, and taps the true income “derived from” the source—the actual fruit coming off the “tree.”

Twice during the debates on the 16th Amendment, Congress rejected the idea of bringing direct taxes within the authority of the 16th Amendment. Then twice more, on July 5, 1909, Congress rejected the idea by direct vote of the Senate (S.J.R. No. 25 and S.J.R. No. 39).

This argument by Respondent was in response to the question put to the Court by Peck (31) as to whether the 16th Amendment created any new taxing power, which the Court stated clearly it did not. Thus, Respondent has clearly distorted and obfuscated the original intended definition of “income.”

Petitioner cannot declare he has “income” when he does not have any, in violation of his conscience and to not present false testimony via the 1040 form under penalty of perjury.

Who is Petitioner to believe and how does he act when confronted with this Court’s and other Courts’ long-standing decisions? (A 64-page brief on “income” is in previously named Court documents for more detail.)

Finally, it must be noted that the law provides for protection from taxes upon income “excluded by law” (Treas. Reg. §1.61-1 (32) and income “not taxable by the Federal Government under the Constitution” (Treas. Reg. §1.312-6[b] (33). It is Petitioner’s contention that these exclusions have not been lawfully determined as yet, and the issue of “income” may fall under these regulations.

“The meaning of ‘income’ in this amendment is the gain derived from or through the

accruing to capital or growth or increment of value in the investment, but a gain,
a profit, something of exchangeable value, proceeding from the property, severed
from the capital however employed and coming in or being ‘derived,’ that is,
received or drawn by the recipient for his separate use , benefit, and disposal.”

“[2] Whatever may constitute income, therefore, must have the essential feature of
gain to the recipient. This was true when the 16th amendment became effective, it
was true at the time of the decision in Eisner v. Macomber, it was true under
section 22(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1939, and it is true under section
6I(a) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954. If there is no gain, there is no income.”
“[1] … It [income] is not synonymous with receipts. Simply put, pay from a job is a
‘wage,’ and wages are not taxable. Congress has taxed income, not compensation.”

“There must be gain before there is ‘income’ within the 16th Amendment.”

12. Pollock, 158 U.S. at 635 -637
“We have considered the act only in respect of the tax on income derived from real
estate, and from invested personal property, and have not commented on so much of
it as bears on gains or profits from business, privileges, or employments, in view of
the instances in which taxation on business, privileges, or employments has
assumed the guise of an excise tax and been sustained as such. It is evident that the
income from realty formed a vital part of the scheme for taxation embodied therein.
If that be stricken out, and also the income from all investments of all kinds, it is obvious that by far the largest part of the anticipated revenue would be eliminated,
and this would leave the burden of the tax to be borne by professionals, trades,
employments, or vocations; and in that way what was intended as a tax on capital
would remain in substance as a tax on occupations and labor. We cannot believe
that such was the intention of Congress. We do not mean to say that an act laying
by apportionment a direct tax on all real estate and personal property , or the
income thereof, might not lay excise taxes on business, privileges, employments and
vocations. But this is not such an act; and the scheme must be considered as a

"Included in the right of personal liberty and the right of private property are
taking of the nature of each is the right to make contracts for the acquisition of
property. The chief among such contracts instead of personal employment, by which
in labor and other services are exchanged for money or other forms of property. If
this right be struck down or arbitrarily interfered with, there is a substantial
impairment ofliberty in the long established constitutional sense. The right is as
essential to the laborer as to the capitalist, to the poor as to the rich; for the vast
majority of persons have no other artists away to begin to acquire property, save by
working for money... The right to follow any lawful vocation and to make contracts
is as completely within the protection of the Constitution as the right to hold
property free from unwarranted seizure, or the liberty to go when and where one
will . One of the ways of obtaining property is by contract. The right, therefore, to
contract cannot be infringed by the legislature without violating the letter and
spirit of the Constitution. Every citizen is protected in his right to work where and

"Property is everything which has an exchangeable value, in the right of property

"So that, perhaps, the true question is this: is income property, in the sense of t he
constitution, and must it be taxed at the same rate as other property? The fact is,
property is a tree; income is the fruit; labour is a tree; income the fruit; capital,
the tree; income the fruit. The fruit, if not consumed (severed) as fast as it ripens,
will germinate from the seed .. . and will produce other trees and grow into more
property; but so long as it is fruit merely, and plucked (severed) to eat .. . it is no
tree, and will produce itself no fruit."

pointed out that the all-embracing power of taxation conferred upon Congress by
the Constitution included two great classes, one indirect taxes or excises, and the
other direct taxes, and that of apportionment with regard to direct taxes. It was
held that the income tax in its nature is an excise; that is, it is a tax upon a person
measured by his income . .. It was further held that the effect of the Sixteenth
Amendment was not to change the nature of this tax or to take it out of the class of
excises to which it belonged, but merely to make it impossible by any sort of
reasoning thereafter to treat it as a direct tax because of the sources from which the
income was derived. ([14-15] Peck & Co. v; Lowe, 247 U.S. 165 [1917]. Not in the

What can you do now with this information?  Research the web sites mentioned below.  Knowledge of the actual laws, or lack thereof, and the Constitution and court cases is vital to defending against this domestic terrorist organization all America hates, but believe they are powerless against it.  YOU ARE NOT.

Educate yourself, then exercise your rights under the law. http://www.foundationfortruthinlaw.org/Files/11-IRS-Documents/. 
You can also go to http://thematrixhasyou.org/no-tax.html for more information, and examples of actual letters to the IRS which ask basic questions.  Keep it simple… two or three questions to begin with, like what is the lawful definition of income (it isn’t in the code), what type of tax is income tax, direct or indirect, and where in the code does it make YOU personally liable to file a 1040 form.

They will likely send one of their form letters saying they are not going to answer such questions and will not in the future, despite their own code stating they are supposed to answer.  The problem is, they can’t answer with the truth or law, so they ignore us.  So much for transparent public servants, right?  Time to remove 150 million of us from this fraud and let our reps know about the lies.  The IRS will cease to exist once that happens.

Remember, the 1040 form is self-assessing.  If it were an actual constitutional law that authorizes the government to tax our wages, they could simply calculate the tax and send us a bill, but that is unconstitutional, so they trick us all into playing their game, under threat of course, and we assess ourselves.  They view this money volunteered, under law, as a “gift” to the government.  Nice racket, right?

The People created the government.  WE are their bosses, so start acting like it.
