More Victories For The Rule Of Law- Page Forty-Six
Tens of thousands of readers of 'Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America' have taken control of their own resources, in accordance with, and respect for, the law. The likely total amount reclaimed by these good Americans so far is upward of several billion dollars.
A few of these good American men and women-- such as those honored below-- are generous enough to send me the evidence of their victories in upholding the law, for the edification and inspiration of everyone. At the moment those shared refund checks, closing notices, and so forth total:
Craig and Wanda Lorenz
(FICA withholdings were not claimed in this case, for reasons of Craig and Wanda's own.)
Jason and Kristen
There's a great side-story to this victory-- see episode XLII of the 'Every Which Way But Loose' series for the details.
Dick and Vicky
This was a refund of everything paid-in as "estimated tax due" prior to learning the truth about the tax and claiming it all back. See Dick and Vicky's federal victory for 2007 on page 45.
(This did not include FICA withholdings-- C. chose to not claim them for reasons of his own.)
(FICA withholdings were claimed but not included in this refund-- Mark is making inquiries.)
George and Sheila
The claims that produced these victories for the rule of law can be seen here.
Todd and Meredith Ryan
(This is for 2008; see Todd and Meredith's 2007 Arizona victory on page 45 of this collection.)
See the claim that produced this refund here.
Mike converted a $54,113.61 alleged liability into a $2,500.84 refund (with a little left coming still) by amending original returns created before learning the truth about the tax.
The IRS had to go through a few accounting steps to sort out Mike's simultaneous correction of 2010 and 2011 filings. First it acknowledged his 2010 overpayment:
Then the agency applied the 2010 overpayment to what it briefly continued to characterize as Mike's outstanding balance for 2011:
Seven days later, the agency acknowledged Mike's correction for 2011 (a period in which nothing had been withheld), and that the 2010 amount credited against that year now constituted an overpayment for 2011:
It promptly returned that overpayment to Mike, with interest:
One thing remains to settle the account: the $54 dollars of interest owed to Mike for the 2010 overpayment is still outstanding...
Even in the face of the requirements of the law, the junkyard dog is still trying to play its losing hand in a few cases-- particularly where amended returns, in which the filer necessarily disputes his or her own previous testimony, are concerned. Significantly, not once in any of these efforts to discourage or stonewall a proper filing does the government actually challenge or dispute the accuracy of what is revealed in 'Cracking the Code-...'
Despite the fact that those whose victories are on display here did nothing but insist that the law be applied as it is written, they did so in the face of fearful threats and cunning disinformation from the beneficiaries of corruption. Their actions took great courage and commitment, and I salute them all.
“God grants liberty only to those who love it, and are always ready to guard and defend it.”
NOTE: Whether any given individual is entitled to a refund depends on a number of different factors, and no one should presume that they are so entitled simply because they see that others are. Each person should educate himself or herself about the particulars of the law, and make his or her own determination in this regard.
