IRS Operates On 90% Bluff

"In a recent conversation with a high level IRS official, I was amazed when he told me that 'if the taxpayers of this country ever discover that the IRS operates on 90% bluff, the entire system will collapse.' " - Harry Bellmon, Senator (1969)

"Fear is the key element for the IRS in achieving its mission. Without fear, the IRS would have a difficult time maintaining our so-called system of voluntary compliance. Given the opportunity the IRS will take the way out and grab whatever it can...the IRS does not care about you or what your future...may be." - Santo Presti, former IRS Criminal Investigation agent and author of "IRS in Action."

Wonder how this would work:

District Director
Internal Revenue Service
WeeWokie Switch District
WeeWokie Switch, Oklahoma

Dear Director:

I am the owner of a small business which employs six people. I recently lost an employee who moved to another state and I have hired a replacement for him.

The new employee demands that I not withhold any federal income taxes from his pay, and he has showm me provisions in the law which appear to support his position. I advised him I must withhold, because that is what I have been told I must do to keep out of trouble with the IRS, though I have never seen a law which requires me to withhold. He says he will sue me in state court if I fail to follow the statutes he has shown me.

My question for you is this: If I do withhold and he sues me, will the IRS or DOJ provide a legal defense and legal counsel to defend me in court, at no expense to me? I have long resented being an unpaid tax collector for you anyway, so I am inclined to follow his instructions, since I need his written permission (W-4) to withhold from his pay.

I suppose that raises another question. Can you show me where in the law I am required to be an uncompensated collector of taxes for the IRS? I really love this country and I truly do wish to abide by the laws which pertain to me.

Looking forward to receiving your prompt reply, I am
