Who got one?
Does anyone know what it is?

I have read that there is actually no law that says you have to pay income tax. Exceptions: you sell alcohol, tobacco or firearms. If you don't government is enforcing a law that doesn't exist.

I am seriously suspecting that a lot of legal mumbo-jumbo needs to dealt with for that to happen.

Can anyone spill some light on this? Is this an urban legend? Is this real? how do you do that? What are the consequences? I want to know everything. Thank you.

sorry, section 8, article 1 of the constitution says that congress has the right to impose taxes. infact, section 8 states a lot of what congress has rights to.

apparently it is a encoded computer file that the IRS keeps to audit and investigate any given taxpayer. in other words, uncle sam is watching people who have not filed a return for x years, and are wondering why.

I get a Social Security statement every year in May. I wonder if that's related.
