US Government Being Sued for Tax Fraud

taxfraudOne private citizen in Georgia has reportedly filed a civil suit recently against the government for tax fraud. No attorney contacted has accepted an assistance request, saying,

“[I] have never heard of this kind of suit.”

…if any response was given at all. The plaintiff who has not commented publicly is rowing the boat on a pro se – for self – basis.

The complaint reads that the government is not utilizing income tax dollars as it is supposed to, what constitutes something called constructive fraud or using funds in a manner other than its expressed intent. The second and larger complaint is that the government has no legal authorization to tax wages and salaries.

To prove tax fraud, the plaintiff must present all five conditions to be present:

  1. A false statement of a material fact,
  2. Knowledge on the part of the defendant that the statement is untrue,
  3. Intent on the part of the defendant to deceive the alleged victim,
  4. Justifiable reliance by the alleged victim on the statement, and
  5. Injury to the alleged victim as a result.

The Department of Justice, Civil Division, has not yet received the notice of suit, but the plaintiff expects to have it served some time this coming week. The government will then have 60 days to respond. …

Tax reforms happen relatively often. In terms of democracy, we do have the technology to decide democratically where our money will be spent. I’m not sure that’s such a great idea, but I am curious what our country would look like if we decided democratically where every penny of our taxes would go. Would we end up with a football stadium and free beer in every US city?
