Death of the income tax

If the following two paragraphs were to go viral, the house of cards that is America’s deeply oppressive, unjust tax system will come tumbling down. It is time to end income tax.

Dear IRS,

Whereas the Internal Revenue Code defines a “withholding agent” at IRC 7701(a)(16) which states: “The term ‘withholding agent’ means any person required to deduct and withhold any tax under the provisions of Sections 1441, 1442, 1443 and 1461.” The first three sections apply to withholding tax from nonresident aliens and foreign corporations, while section 1461 simply makes the agent responsible for the taxes collected.



Therefore, as I am neither a nonresident alien nor am I a foreign corporation my employer is not required to withhold income tax from my paycheck and since I no longer choose to volunteer, I submit this letter and demand the appropriate form/instructions, based on the above definition, i.e. the law of this land, which I can then present to my employer to legally halt having income tax withheld from my paycheck.
