Other tax protestors…

Posted by taxguru on April 24, 2008

A few weeks ago, I received the following email from someone who obviously wants to follow in Wesley Snipes’ footsteps in regard to taxes.

Subject: Tax Question

Hi My name is Frank

My Friend told me to check out you web page and that you are claiming that YOU MUST FILE at Tax return or else.

So if what you are telling me is true according to your web page then it should be very simple to SHOW ME THE LAW.

After all there has to be a Law, Right? If there is a law then I will send you an apology an I will also get a group that will actually PAY YOU MONEY should you find this LAW.

You are stating SCAM so if this is true then it won’t be any problem for you to prove your point right?

Please refrain from double speak or dancing around the issue and show me the law, because after all that is what we base our constitution on isn’t it? Unfortunatly I did NOT see where you were specific about the LAW on this issue.



My Reply:


It’s been a while since I’ve received an email like yours, espousing the idiotic tax protestor arguments against the tax system. I used to receive several every day before the IRS started directly addressing these ridiculous claims on their own.

As many of your compatriots have done in the past, you have obviously mistaken me for someone else.  I am a private citizen and have no responsibility for the administration of the tax law. I have no requirement to answer any of your stupid questions or waste any more of my time debunking your moronic theories about how the tax system works in this country.

I actually couldn’t care less if you want to pretend that there is no law requiring you to file tax returns and spend the rest of your life fighting for your life in court and prison. In fact, the more time the IRS spends dealing with idiots like you and your cohorts, the less time they will have available to harass those of us who obey the laws.

You need to address your concerns to the governmental agency that handles tax matters, the IRS.

To save you time, they have a special web page dealing with the frivolous arguments that you are trying to use. You should start there if you truly care about the truth. 

Good luck.

Kerry Kerstetter
