I'm proud of these people. Whoever withholds funds from our fascist government, imparting its murders worldwide is a good person.

I second George's opinion. This administration is consistently using our hard earned, yet illegally collected tax money for their own agenda(s)--not for what it was intended. We are not getting services rendered. Those that are withhold money from the state should be lauded for their insight. The only way to stop the wars and illegal use of our tax revenues is to stop supplying those funds. Surely, the neocons will not fund the wars themselves. Without our money, they are dead in the water.

Why you pick on the blacks?

Ironic that you would use the term "murderer," since that's what O.J. Simpson is. This list is just another example of the rich getting away with not paying taxes. If you or I stop paying our taxes, the IRS sends the FBI to the house to shoot us. Do you support the super-rich parasites?

Why give money to this government, they will just spend it on something useless, like the illegal war bush started with Iraq, giving it to Blackwater to kill innocent children or a tax break to an oil company.
We need new blood in our management of this country, In 2008 I’m personally voting for anyone who is not currently in office and (running this country into the ground)

Why all the fuss and all the lies??
There ARE NO taxes, because there is NO MONEY.
Check out your Currencies Act...It's the same as Australia...1. No bill can be paid with more than $20 in coins. 2. Passing a Federal Reserve note to another person constitutes FRAUD!! It's fiat money and has NO value,
Why are the judges and lawyers not coming clean on this subject??

The application of tax law is a variably subjective measure from two distinct perspectives:
1) From the perspective of the taxpayer.
2) From the perspective of the tax collector.
A third perspective is added to this mixture of pure mixed-up deviltry, and that is the perspective of wily tax lawyers and wily tax accountants.
All taxes are regressive, shunting someone or something.
All laws are repressive, shunting someone or something.
But given that all economic activity has a secondary unseen and unconsidered shunting and negative impact upon humanity, its collective standard of living and quality of life, perhaps a tax vehicle could be incentivized to discourage consumption, production, empirical study, and finally education, which fosters the first three by creating the very unreal expectation that life can somehow be made better.
Life cannot be made better.
Life is the ultimate good and the ultimate truth.
And there everyone perhaps thought economics and perhaps law were the ultimate good and the ultimate truth.
No. Economics and law are merely the expression of unreal conventions that humans write, act-on and jabber about endlessly and nonsensically just as if these idiotic things really meant something.
And, yet economics and law all variably subjective notions about a Kafkesque nothing.
In some less polite circles, it's more colloquially called a circle-jerk.
Academic philosophers might now refer to life as a circle-jerk existence of empirical barbarity.
Academic philosophers have a systemically poor attitude about life because they believe life is all about consumption, production, empirical study, and finally education.
Life is about life, pure and simple, the ultimate truth and the ultimate good.

Hey George & Ray, if you actually read and understand this list you will realize that it is not the IRS but it is the state of California that is trying to collect these back taxes. They are owed to the state of California, not the feds. It ain't going to fund the war, it is going to fund the state.

I am a libertarian, but I find that all too often many so-called tax rebels are currently or retired public sector employees. I am a retired firefighter who became interested in the Libertarian Party in the 80s; I am not a member. I find it difficult to give any credibility to the anarchist wing of libertarians that say to hell with paying takes while some of them are collecting a paycheck or a pension check from the public sector.
