I am not a tax attorney; however, I want to give everyone some great advice. The Income Tax is real and legal. Despite the rantings of anti-tax hucksters, you must pay income taxes if you are a US citizen.
Following the advice of tax protesters is a recipe for disaster.
1. You may go to jail;
2. You will end up paying taxes, interest, and fines;
3. You will spend a lot of money on lawyers . . . even if you win.
If you don't believe me, look at Wesley Snipes. Even if he avoids going to jail, did he really win??
