READERS OF AN
ASTONISHING BOOK ARE REALIZING THEY OWE $0 IN INCOME TAXES, AND ARE GETTING COMPLETE REFUNDS OF WITHHELD MONEY
COMMERCE TWP, MI. Hundreds of readers of a book entitled
Cracking the Code: The Fascinating Truth About Taxation in America have come to realize that the federal income tax does not apply to them.
They have requested – and received – full refunds of all the money withheld from their pay-- including Social Security “contributions”.
The total of just those of which
Cracking the Code author, Pete Hendrickson, has been sent copies for posting on his website,
www.losthorizons.com, is well over $11,000,000.00, and is growing rapidly.
“The reason most people are confused about their legal obligations,” says Hendrickson, ”is that they mistakenly apply the everyday meaning of such terms as ‘income', 'wages', 'employer', 'employee', 'trade or business' and others when managing their tax-related affairs. In fact,” he adds, “these terms have narrow, legal meanings within the tax law.”
How narrow? Hendrickson says they only apply to certain privileged activities, such as holding, administering, or working in a government office; or profiting from investment in federally-owned or -controlled enterprises.
“Although the tax statutes make perfectly clear that, for instance, language describing the obligations of ‘employees’ – and the taxes to which ‘employees’ are subject – only apply to a small minority of American workers, the distinction is artfully concealed in the Internal Revenue Code representation of the law,” he says. “An elaborate system has been created which causes many people to whom the tax laws do not otherwise apply to naively declare themselves to be among the persons to whom those laws do apply, and to tax themselves accordingly.”
The IRS is, of course, perfectly happy to take them at their word. And to take their money.
The government’s response to all of this – aside from providing full refunds, lien and levy cancellations, formal acknowledgements of $0.00 "income" received and $0.00 tax owed, etc. when confronted – has been repeated attempts by the IRS to suppress publication of the book as “promoting an abusive tax shelter.”
“I’m not helping, or even advising, anyone to ‘shelter’ anything,” responds Hendrickson. “Nor am I claiming, like others have, that the income tax is unconstitutional. It isn’t. The only thing I’m "promoting" is a book that tells the truth about the tax code-- a truth the IRS finds highly inconvenient.”
The US Justice Department apparently agrees. It has moved in federal court three times now to dismiss IRS legal actions based on such allegations.
