Flawed Wesley Snipes 2-part Film Circulating

The "861 argument" folks are at it again, circulating a well-produced two-part film purporting to demonstrate that only non-Americans or those doing business in foreign countries or federal territories and possessions can be liable for "income" taxes. The film focuses on the recent indictment of Wesley Snipes, and the fact that, in part, the indictment accuses Snipes of "failing to file a return stating his income and claiming any deductions and credits to which he is entitled".

hehehe I noticed the same thing the other day. If you place a search string within quotes, only instances where it appears exactly as it is within the quotes will be found by the search.

You want to conduct a THOROUGH search of the tax code? Try following this step-by-step exploration of all the possibilities and you will consistently come up with 861 as the answer, and the ONLY answer.

Paycheck-Piracy-list-owner@mail-list.com WRITES:
"Subject: flawed Wesley Snipes 2-part film circulating

Unfortunately, this is merely an exercise in fallacious reasoning,
in which the film-maker's proposition is illegitimately presented as
being decisive of the issue they claim to address, and is also
carefully framed in a fashion that leads to the conclusion desired.
Without bothering to run my own search to the same effect, I'll
grant for purposes of this discussion that these may be the only
locations where the entire phrase "deductions and credits" may be
found. However, they are certainly NOT the only places that
"deductions" and/or "credits" available to filers are found in the
code or the law. A search for either will turn up MANY references
to these terms.

26 USC 151. Allowance of deductions for personal exemptions

(a) Allowance of deductions

In the case of an individual, the exemptions provided by this
section shall be allowed as deductions in computing taxable income.

and,

26 USC 31. Tax withheld on wages

(a) Wage withholding for income tax purposes

(1) In general The amount withheld as tax under chapter 24 shall be
allowed to the recipient of the income as a credit against the tax
imposed by this subtitle.

...are sufficient by themselves to make clear that the film's
premise is completely unfounded."

What a CROCK!

The above applies ONLY AFTER (1) the applicable definition of "Individual" has been determined, (2) "Gross Income" and "Taxable Income" have been determined, (3) "for income tax purposes" has been defined, (4) the definition of "taxpayer" (as distinguished from "tax payer") has been determined, and (5) the context in which provisions are offered has been determined.

Paycheck Piracy List Owner deliberately omits pertinent parts, such as are seen below. Why would anyone be looking under "Refundable Credits" before first determining the qualifiers listed above?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
United States Code
TITLE 26 - INTERNAL REVENUE CODE
SUBTITLE A - INCOME TAXES
CHAPTER 1 - NORMAL TAXES AND SURTAXES
SUBCHAPTER B - COMPUTATION OF TAXABLE INCOME
PART V - DEDUCTIONS FOR PERSONAL EXEMPTIONS

Section 151. Allowance of deductions for personal exemptions
(a) Allowance of deductions
In the case of an individual, the exemptions provided by this
section shall be allowed as deductions in computing taxable income
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
United States Code
TITLE 26 - INTERNAL REVENUE CODE
SUBTITLE A - INCOME TAXES
CHAPTER 1 - NORMAL TAXES AND SURTAXES
SUBCHAPTER A - DETERMINATION OF TAX LIABILITY
PART IV - CREDITS AGAINST TAX
SUBPART C - REFUNDABLE CREDITS

(a) Wage withholding for income tax purposes
(1) In general
The amount withheld as tax under chapter 24 shall be allowed to
the recipient of the income as a credit against the tax imposed
by this subtitle.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
A search of the United States Code for "definition of 'individual' " produced only the following four "hits" from Title 26, in the first 75 hits from the entire U.S. Code. As you can see, none has to do with individuals specifically subject to the Income Tax.

Section 2651. Generation assignment
Section 25B. Elective deferrals and IRA contributions by certain individuals
Section 9711. Continued obligations of individual employer plans
Section 406. Employees of foreign affiliates covered by section 3121(l) agreements

A search of the United States Code for "definition of 'individual' for purposes of the Income Tax" produces the following from Title 26:

Section 932. Coordination of United States and Virgin Islands income taxes
Section 6425. Adjustment of overpayment of estimated income tax by corporation
Section 6513. Time return deemed filed and tax considered paid
Section 545. Undistributed personal holding company income
Section 6201. Assessment authority (has to do only with taxes paid by STAMP, such as
stamps on alcohol and tobacco products)
Section 1421i. Income tax (Title 48) - This simply adds Guam to the U.S. Possessions list
Section 7407. Action to enjoin income tax return preparers from illegal activities
Section 894. Income affected by treaty (foreign income)
Section 6694. Understatement of taxpayer's liability by income tax return preparer
Section 6212. Notice of deficiency (gift, estate, and excise taxes)
Section 6096. Designation by individuals (presidential election campaign fund)
Section 556. Undistributed foreign personal holding company income

Above are the first dozen hits, none of which define "individual" for purposes of the income tax. There are quite a few more, but not one defines "individual" in any way that includes American citizens living and earning domestic income within the 50 states.

It isn't that the Congress doesn't know how to impose a tax or define terms. Look at Title 27 and you'll see that the imposition of taxes on alcohol, tobacco and firearms are all clear, unequivocal and unambiguous. Why isn't that the case with Title 26?

And why do defenders of the income tax fraud always have to string together obscure and unrelated provisions in deceptive ways in order to fool shallow surface readers into believing the "U.S. Individual Income Tax" applies to everyone?

It's a FRAUD, plain and simple, the way it is administered. The TRUTH is easily found IN THE LAW now that we have search engines to pin down the FACTS.
Anyone want to conduct a THOROUGH search of the tax code? Try following this step-by-step exploration of all the possibilities and you will consistently come up with 861 as the answer, and the ONLY answer.

If 861 is "the answer" then why did both Larken Rose and Tom Clayton abandon the defense before their criminal trials, where they were convicted anyway?

861 simply doesn't "work". You may believe it does, but then you may spend some time in the Greybar Hotel too.
