When Louisiana attorney Tommy K. Cryer was sued by the IRS for not filing tax returns he challenged the IRS and won by successfully arguing that money he received was not “taxable income” since the IRS has never clearly defined “income” or “taxable income”.
Since the law clearly states that in tax matters “doubts as to their meaning are to be resolved against the taxing authority and in favor of the taxpayer”, the court had no logical choice but to rule in favor of Tommy Cryer and against the IRS.
Businesses provide goods and/or services in exchange for money and pay tax only on their profits, not revenue. They have to spend a lot of their revenue on simply being in business and many businesses lose money. Likewise, individuals provide services in exhange for money and use a large percentage of that money to cover the overhead expenses of being able to provide the service – such as housing, transportation, clothing, food, child care, medical care, recreation, education, etc. Most Americans have been operating at a loss and are deep in debt – the cost of living exceeds their revenue. Yet, the IRS claims that most of the expenses required to provide services for an employer are not tax deductible and offers only a small standard deduction that doesn’t begin to cover the actual costs of living.
Because the IRS has failed to define “income” for individuals, the most common definitions and the IRS’s interpretation of “taxable income” for businesses must be applied.
The Merriam-Webster Dictionary defines “income” as “a gain or recurrent benefit”. Since gross wages for the average person must be offset by the cost of living, “gain” can only mean profit. It can’t be defined one way for a corporation and another way for an individual.
The IRS’ contention that individuals must pay taxes on their wages and other revenue minus a small deduction is morally and legally wrong and amounts to slavery.
Other challenges to the IRS have mostly failed. Arguments regarding the legality of the IRS have consistently been ruled against by courts and are considered to be frivolous. Cryer’s challenge has been successful and is now the basis for similar challenges.
You can stop being a willing slave, stand up to injustice and stop paying for wars, oppression and giveways to criminal corporations. You owe it your yourself and your country.

If you still aren’t sure about your rights you might want to consider taking advantage of the extension to give yourself more time to research your particular situation.
Keep in mind that most accountants and tax attorneys are loyal to the ‘spirit’ of taxation and won’t provide sound advice. If you know of any intelligent and honest tax attorneys (probably non-existent) you might want to give them a copy of the Cryer Memorandum and ask their opinion of the facts of the case.
