I've heard some strange claims by some, are they true?

It is true that there is no law making most Americans liable for the tax.  It is also true that the law does not tax income that is beyond the limited taxing authority of the federal government under the Constitution.  And it is also true that not all that "comes in" is "income" within the meaning of the Sixteenth Amendment and cannot be taxed without apportionment among the states.  To learn and understand more about these truths, you can begin by downloading and reading a memorandum covering and explaining the laws as they are written and the Constitutional law according to the Supreme Court.

There are, however, a number of "theorists" and "experts" touting and selling gimmicks and strange distortions of history and the law.  These snake oil peddlers have conned millions of dollars out of many well-intended Patriots and left a trail of broken lives in their wake.  Generally referred to as the "tin foil hat brigade", these charlatans should be avoided, not only because they will lead you to bankruptcy and prison, but because by association they discredit those who are telling the truth.  Many of these "theories" and "silver bullets" are likely the product of the IRS and intended to divert our attention from the truth.

The Truth Attack has assembled a committee of the most qualified and knowledgeable attorneys and legal experts in the country who are compiling a list of false and misleading "theories", but until then you can find a detailed listing of many of those false idols and scam artists and stories of the devastation they have caused at Becraft Briefs.
