One more time, Here is the law. You deside if it applies to you.

Pasted from Pete Hendricksons web page.

The income tax is not a general, indiscriminate tax-- it is an excise on privilege only (why it is, and must be-- and the general issue of direct versus indirect taxation-- will not be considered in this discussion; it is enough for the immediate purpose that it is):

"The terms "excise tax" and "privilege tax" are synonymous. The two are often used interchangeably." American Airways v. Wallace 57 F.2d 877, 880

“Excises are taxes laid upon the manufacture, sale or consumption of commodities within the country, upon licenses to pursue certain occupations and upon corporate privileges; the requirement to pay such taxes involves the exercise of privilege." Flint vs. Stone Tracy Co. 220 U.S. 107 (1911).

“…taxation on income was [is] in its nature an excise…” Brushaber v. Union Pacific R. Co., 240 U.S. 1 (1916) (quoting, and seconding this conclusion of, its earlier ruling in Pollock v. Farmers Loan and Trust, 158 U.S. 601 (1895).

"The income tax is, therefore, not a tax on income as such. It is an excise tax with respect to certain activities and privileges which is measured by reference to the income which they produce. The income is not the subject of the tax: it is the basis for determining the amount of tax." F. Morse Hubbard, Treasury Department legislative draftsman. House Congressional Record March 27th 1943, page 2580
