THE STORY OF THE BUCK ACT
How the Federal Government Deceitfully Gets
Jurisdiction Over You and Everything You Own.
The united States of America
This is a map of the united States of America. It includes the 50 sovereign and independent states who are freely associated together in a union. It does NOT include the "District of Columbia," which was created by the Constitution of the Union as the legal home of the "federal" government. That government was intended to be a "servant" to the Union States, not their "Master!"
In order for the Federal Government to tax a Citizen of one of the several states, they had to create a contractual nexus. This contractual nexus is called "Social Security." The Federal government always does everything according to principles of laws.
In 1935, the federal government instituted Social Security. The Social Security Board then, created 10 Social Security Districts creating a "Federal Area" which covered the several states like an overlay.
In 1939, the federal government instituted the "Public Salary Tax Act of 1939," which is a municipal law of the District of Columbia, taxing all Federal and State government employees and those who live and work in any "Federal area."
Now, the government knows it cannot tax those Citizens who live and work outside the territorial jurisdiction of Article I, Section 8, Clause 17, or Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2.
So in 1940, Congress passed the "Buck Act" 4 U.S.C.S. 104-113. In Section 110(e), this Act allowed any department of the federal government to create a "Federal Area" for imposition of the Public Salary Tax Act of 1939, the imposition of this tax is at 4 U.S.C.S. section 111, and the rest of the taxing law is in Title 26, The Internal Revenue Code. The Social Security Board had already created an overlay of a "Federal Area."
As a result, the Federal Government created Federal "States" which are exactly like the Sovereign States, occupy the same territory and boundaries, but whose names are capitalized versions of the Sovereign States. (Remember that Proper Names and Proper Nouns in the English language have only the first letter Capitalized.) For example, the Federal "State" of ILLINOIS is overlaid upon the Sovereign State of Illinois. Further, it is designated by the Federal abbreviation of "IL", instead of the Sovereign State abbreviation of "Ill." So too is Arizona designated "AZ" instead of the lawful abbreviation of "Ariz.", "CA" instead of "Calif.", etc. If you use a two-letter CAPITALIZED abbreviation, you are declaring that the location is under the jurisdiction of the "federal" government instead of the powers of the "Sovereign" state.
As a result of creating these "shadow" States, the Federal government assumes that every area is a "Federal Area," and that the Citizens therein are "Federal" citizens.
4 U.S.C.S. section 110(d).
"The term `State' includes any Territory or possession
4 U.S.C.S. section 110(e).
"The term Federal area means any lands or premises held
There is no reasonable doubt that the federal "State" is imposing directly an excise tax under the provisions of 4 U.S.C.S. Section 105 which states in pertinent part:
"Section 105. State and so forth, taxation affecting
Humble Oil & Refining Co. v. Calvert, (1971) 464 SW2d.
170, affd (Tex) 478 SW2d. 926, cert. den. 409 U.S. 967, 34
L.Ed2d. 234, 93 S.Ct. 293.
Thus, the question comes up, what is a "Federal area?" A "Federal area" is any area designated by any agency, department, or establishment of the federal government. This includes the Social Security areas designated by the Social Security Administration, any public housing area that has federal funding, a home that has a federal bank loan, a road that has federal funding, and almost everything that the federal government touches though any type of aid. Springfield v. Kenny, (1951 App.) 104 NE2d. 65.
This "Federal area" attaches to anyone who has a social security number or any personal contact with the federal or state governments. Thus, the federal government has usurped Sovereignty of the People and state Sovereignty by creating these federal areas within the boundaries of the states under the authority of the Federal Constitution, Article IV, Section 3, Clause 2, which states:
"2. The Congress shall have power to dispose of and make all needful rules and regulations respecting the territory or other property belonging to the United States, and nothing in this Constitution shall be so construed as to prejudice any claims of the United States, or of any particular State."
Therefore, the U.S. citizens [citizens of the District of Columbia] residing in one of the states of the union, are classified as property and franchises of the federal government as an "individual entity" Wheeling Steel Corp. v. Fox, 298 U.S. 193, 80 L.Ed. 1143, 56 S.Ct. 773.
Under the "Buck Act" 4 U.S.C.S. sections 105-110, the federal government has created a "Federal area" within the boundaries of all the states. This area is similar to any territory that the federal government acquires through purchase or conquest, thereby imposing federal territorial law upon those in this "Federal area." Under federal territorial law as evidenced by the Executive Branch's yellow fringed merchant law flag (see Federal Courts for an explanation) flying in schools, offices and all courtrooms.
So, when you send mail using the two-letter CAPITAL abbreviation for the state, you are addressing the corporate shadow state created by the Buck Act as an extension of the federal District of Columbia, and you are accepting the jurisdiction of the FEDERAL Government within the borders of the Sovereign States!
Then, to really lock down their control, the federal government created an artificial PERSON to whom they could address all of their demands. This person is Your Name in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS! Whenever you receive a letter from the government addressed in ALL CAPITAL LETTERS (such as "JOHN SMITH" instead of the proper English language "John Smith") they are addressing a legal fiction, a "straw man," whom they assume they OWN. This is fully explained in the LIBERTY REDEMPTION PACK.
Since they are going on the assumption that they OWN this "straw man" (which they actually do not -- and you can learn how you can take TITLE to this "straw man") they assume that whatever money comes in to the property ("straw man") belongs to the master (government).
What you are experiencing is an unprecedented GRAB for power by the "federal" government! In fact, Agents of the "federal" government have NO jurisdiction within the borders of these separate and sovereign united States, or over the "straw man" -- unless you give it to them!
YOU CAN, LEGALLY, BECOME EXEMPT
FROM INTERNAL REVENUE TAXES!
Americans today are the most exploited people in history!
It's gotten so bad today that many Americans are actually AFRAID of their own government! For example, here is syndicated humorist Dave Barry trying to be funny about paying Income Taxes:
"It's tax time again, Americans: Time to gather up those receipts, get out those tax forms, sharpen up that pencil and stab yourself in the aorta."
...and, on how to communicate with the Internal Revenue Service, Barry says:
"GOT A QUESTION OR COMMENT FOR THE IRS? Speak it into any electrical fixture in your home. Then just wait."
IMAGINE! You're supposed to ACCEPT the idea that the government has bugged your home! This is an absolutely devastating comment on the tyranny that has taken over "The Land of the Free and the Home of the Brave!"
It almost seems like the IRS has now adopted that famous saying by one of America's great showmen:
"There's a sucker born every minute."
But, intelligent Americans, who are willing to learn the TRUE facts, have a couple of WONDERFUL protections!
The single GREATEST tax shelter available to Americans is ...
The SECOND greatest tax shelter available to Americans is ...
The Internal Revenue Code!
There are many kinds of tax that we each have to contend with in our lives. Here, we'll limit our discussion to the Federal Income Tax.
Please UNDERSTAND...we are NOT saying you should become a "TAX PROTESTER!" We believe that you should pay ALL the taxes you are legally obligated to pay! And, if you work for the Federal Government, are a citizen of the Federal District of Columbia (or live on federal land), and receive "income" (as legally defined), you must pay Federal Tax each year to the Internal Revenue Service. However, if you, like most people in this country, live in one of the 50 States, and work in private business, you do not owe a DIME in FEDERAL INCOME TAXES (because -- you, legally, don't have any FEDERAL "income")!
This may seem RADICAL and SCARY. However, the facts, and the law, clearly prove that the Internal Revenue Service has taken a law which pertains ONLY to "INCOME" from the Federal District, and has attempted to impose it on ALL of the PRIVATE earnings of the Citizens of the united States of America (Note: This is the correct capitalization for the name of the Union of States). But, that is NOT what the LAW mandates!
We've all been told that the Internal Revenue Code is way too complicated for anyone to go read! Why do they tell you that? Perhaps, if you did read it, you'd learn they can't do what they are attempting! Title 26 of the United States Code, the Income Tax Code, is the legal basis for all of the IRS's actions. And, believe it or not, the Code is written CORRECTLY!
We must use THEIR Code to determine OUR tax liability.
But, just as its title says, it is a CODE! It has to be "translated" or "broken down" into normal, everyday language to be easily understood. You must understand that in the IRS Code, the words "include" and "includes," mean "restricted to what is identified." One of the most difficult things to come to grips with is that the IRS Code intentionally plays Word Games to confuse us. By taking everyday words, and re-defining them to mean something else, the IRS attempts to trick you into "compliance." Always remember, the LAW is exactly what it is called - a CODE - that must be translated!
Now, let's see some examples of this word trickery by seeing how important terms are defined for use in the regulations. The following definitions are direct quotes from USC 26, the Federal Income Tax Code.
"UNITED STATES.- The term `United States' when used in a
geographic sense includes only the States and the District
This sounds like what we have always believed - Atlantic to Pacific -coast to coast - all the states -- but wait! What do they mean by "State"? Look at the very next paragraph!
"STATE.- The term `State' shall be construed to include the
District of Columbia, where such construction is necessary
to carry out provisions of this title."
What? "State" means just the "District of Columbia?" This means that we can substitute "District of Columbia" for the word "States" in the definition for "United States!" So, the "United States" which the Internal Revenue Code and the Internal Revenue Service have jurisdiction over is limited to the District of Columbia - and - the District of Columbia!
Yep! They're playing WORD GAMES with us!
But, just hold on! Wait a minute here! How do we know the definition of "State" means that the 50 States of the "UNION" aren't included? Let's be SURE that the 50 separate STATES are NOT included in the "United States" as defined.
Section 6103(b)(5) of the IRS Code has a unique definition of "State," dealing with areas used for Procedure and Administration. These are the places from which you can legally file documents. Section 6103(b) says:
"(B) DEFINITIONS.-For purposes of this section-"
...So, it is clear that the definitions ARE ONLY FOR THIS SECTION...
"(5) STATE.-The term `State' means - any of the 50 States,
the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico, the
Virgin Islands, the Canal Zone, Guam, American Samoa, and the
Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands, and..."
(The rest of the definition is about municipalities.)
So, if you are a federal employee who needs to file tax forms, you can do it from any of the places listed in this definition, including "any of the 50 States." But, we plainly see the "United States" which imposes the Internal Revenue Tax, as previously defined, DOES NOT include the 50 States - it is JUST "Washington D.C."
HOW CAN THIS BE?
Well, the answer really goes back to the American Revolution.
When Lord Cornwallis surrendered in 1781, he capitulated 13 different times to thirteen separate, independent Nations; New York, Virginia, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, etc. With that act, the Crown of England recognized the Sovereignty of the thirteen independent colonies as independent Nations. And, the States have been separate and independent ever since! Your State, whether it calls itself a State or a Commonwealth, is still an Independent Republic. This is mandated by the Constitution of the united States, Article 4, Section 4:
"The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union
a Republican Form of Government..."
The original 13 small "nations" realized that they were much too small, individually, and too weak to be able to survive. So, they banded together and formed a "Union." They put together a "Constitution," which created a "federal government" to perform the functions between the states (trade between the new little "nations") and internationally (embassies, diplomacy, armies, etc.) that the separate little nations couldn't perform for themselves. This Constitution was intended to put chains around that federal government, because the founders understood that if it was not restricted, it could easily run amuck and take over the Union. It should be noted here that the "federal government" was to be the servant of the Union, NOT the master as it is attempting to be today.
The definition of the name "United States " came before the U.S. supreme Court in 1945, in the Hooven & Allison Co. v. Evatt case. The ruling, which has never been challenged since that time, said that there are actually THREE "United States": (1) It may be the name of a sovereign nation occupying the position of other sovereigns in the family of nations.
(2) It may designate the limited territory, the ten square mile area (on the Potomac River) designated in the Constitution, over which the sovereignty of the federal government extends.
(3) It may be the collective name of the 50 States which are united by and under the Constitution as the "united States of America."
As a Citizen of one of the independent, Sovereign States, one of the stars on the flag, you are also a Citizen of the Union of the States, but not the District of Columbia. The District of Columbia does not have a star on the flag, and is NOT part of the Union. (The citizens of the federal district also do NOT have the protection of a Constitution or a Bill of Rights!)
You can learn a great deal more about this in the ORGANIC SOVEREIGN AMERICAN FREEMAN COMPENDIUM - a huge, two-volume compendium of over forty five years of research and scholastic effort. This home-study course will tell you the amazing story, heavily documented, of how the Federal Income "Tax" has been fraudulently imposed on the Sovereign Citizens of the united States of America.
You DO NOT face going to jail or having your possessions confiscated by the IRS for standing up for your Rights! This is STILL America! Even with all of the problems that have come upon our nation in the last several decades, we are NOT living in a police or totalitarian state, yet!
In fact, the Federal Income Tax is EXACTLY what it claims -- a tax on "FEDERAL" income! And, the "Internal" Revenue Service has power ONLY over the INTERNAL revenue of the federal government. To prove to you that the IRS Code is designed to extract taxes from FEDERAL employees, let's take a look at the definition for "EMPLOYEE."
"EMPLOYEE.-For purposes of this chapter, the term `employee'
includes an officer, employee, or elected official of the United
States, a State, or any political subdivision thereof, or the
District of Columbia, or any agency or instrumentality of any one
or more of the foregoing. The term `employee' also includes an
officer of a corporation."
To be an "EMPLOYEE", you have to WORK FOR THE GOVERNMENT, or be an officer of a corporation (they're referring to municipal corporations)! But, guess what this means regarding having your employer take money out of your paycheck? Yes, you're getting ahead of us here, aren't you. Be patient. We'll cover it ALL!
Our old friend, Uncle Sam, is getting a little old, battered and the worse for wear, these days, but he STILL has a vitally important question for you, the Citizen. But, what if you are an "officer of a corporation" as stated in the Code (above)? Well, you'll learn that your business does not even QUALIFY to pay taxes, under the Internal Revenue Code!
"CORPORATION.- The term `corporation' includes associations,
joint-stock companies, and insurance companies."
That doesn't sound like YOUR company, does it? And, further study of the Tax Code will reveal that the "corporation" must be formed in, doing business in, or receiving "income" from - the District of Columbia (otherwise it is considered to be a "foreign" corporation)! So much for the "officer of a corporation" problem in the "Employee" definition.
Further, if your business is not incorporated, take a look at the definition provided for a "TRADE OR BUSINESS ".
"TRADE OR BUSINESS.-The term `trade or business' includes the
performance of the functions of a public office." [emphasis added]
That's what the Tax Code SAYS!!
Think about it. All of your life, haven't you had a gnawing feeling deep inside you, that the Tax Code and the actions of the IRS were WRONG? You know, that knot of fear in your stomach you got each Spring when "tax time" came around?
Haven't you? Well, learn the TRUTH!
In 1991, the IRS reported that there were 163 million "taxpayers", and in a seperate report, they claimed that they received 111 million tax filings for that year. What happened to the other 52 million? The Internal Revenue Service is silent about them. Some probably got to tax-filing time, didn't have the money, and are hiding under the bed in fear. But many, many of these "missing" people learned how to be EXEMPT from the IRS and the Federal Income Tax, and have permanently dropped out of the system!
As late as August 26, 1993, then IRS Commissioner Peggy Richardson, in a speech to Lawyers and Accountants (members of the National Association of Enrolled Agents) asserted that she needed their help to achieve greater "voluntary compliance" from taxpayers, because annual collections were dropping. She said that the IRS was NOT collecting at least "$70 billion in additional revenues each year." She further stated that at least 1 out of 5 "taxpayers" were now REFUSING to comply, and that the "tax revolt" is growing. In addition, she claimed that "The compliance level from corporations in the service industries fell from 69 percent to 48 percent between 1980 and 1987." [emphasis added]
In the summer of 2002, then Commissioner Rosotti went to Congress to plead for more funds because the IRS was not able to keep up with the number of Americans leaving the tax system! When Congress turned him down, he quit.
In the ORGANIC SOVEREIGN AMERICAN FREEMAN COMPENDIUM, quoting directly from the laws of the United States and the Internal Revenue Code itself, you are shown step-by-step how the Federal Income "Tax" is not a "tax" at all, and where the money you have been paying all these years REALLY goes (since 1942, not a dime of it has EVER gone to the Federal Treasury)! The ORGANIC SOVEREIGN AMERICAN FREEMAN COMPENDIUM also reveals the exact source of all of the money the government does actually use to pay its bills, and what the Constitution says about who can levy taxes, on whom the taxes are levied, and what taxes are specifically prohibited. (HINT: The Individual Income Tax is prohibited!)
To put your mind at ease, you need to realize that if EVERYBODY in the entire country STOPPED paying Federal Income tax, the federal government would STILL get all the constitutionally approved income it had in 2003! There would be plenty of money to support the government, pay for schools, the military, to fix roads, build bridges, etc. The government would NOT go broke!
"Include" and "Includes"The Internal Revenue Code wants you to believe that the Tax Code covers everything that is listed in the Code, and can be expanded to involve anything else they may decide upon at any later date. Look at the "definition" written in the Internal Revenue Code:
"Sec. 7701(c) INCLUDES AND INCLUDING. - The terms `includes' and `including' when used in a definition contained in this title shall not be deemed to exclude other things otherwise within the meaning of the term defined." This would, at first glance, seem to say that these words are used in the Code in an expansive way, not a limiting way. (However, if you carefully analyze this "definition," you discover that it is a classic example of "double-talk." It really doesn't say ANYTHING!) But, going along with their game, if you are supposed to believe that these words are expansive in nature, how can you explain the definition for "GROSS INCOME" as stated in the Code?
"SEC. 61(a) GENERAL DEFINITION. - Except as otherwise provided in this subtitle, gross income means all income from whatever source derived, including (but not limited to) the following items:..." [emphasis added] Why did they feel required to add "(but not limited to)?" The answer is self-evident: they knew that "including" is a LIMITING term! If they wanted to have the flexibility to contend that items other than those itemized in the Code could be added to the definition of Gross Income, they had to specifically reserve the right to add other things - hence the addition of "(but not limited to)."
You need to understand that the words "include" and "includes," when used in the Tax Code, DO NOT mean that other things can be included, but rather the definition is limited to the items specifically listed in the law.
Treasury Decision No. 3980, Vol. 29
As you probably know, Black's Law Dictionary is the Bible of legal definitions. See what it says:"Include. (Lat. Inclaudere, to shut in. keep within.) To confine within, hold as an inclosure. take in, attain, shut up, contain, inclose, comprise, comprehend, embrase, involve. Term may, according to context, express an enlargement and have the meaning of and or in addition to, or merely specify a particular thing already included within general words theretofore used. "Including" within statute is interpreted as a word of enlargement or of illustrative application as well as a word of limitation. Premier Products Co. v. Cameron, 240 Or. 123, 400 P.2d 227, 228." In other words, according to Black, when INCLUDE is used it expands to take in all of the items stipulated or listed, but is then limited to them!
Further, Bouvier's Law Dictionary has the following definitions:"INCLUDE (Lat. in claudere to shut in, keep within). In a legacy of `one hundred dollars including money trusteed' at a bank, it was held that the word `including' extended only to a gift of one hundred dollars; 132 Mass. 218..."
"INCLUDING. The words `and including' following a description do not necessarily mean `in addition to,' but may refer to a part of the thing described. 221 U.S. 425." And, in everyday life, the meaning of these words is a RESTRICTIVE one, not an EXPANSIVE one.
Read the American College Dictionary:"include, v.f.;-cluded, -cluding. 1. to contain, embrace, or comprise, as a whole those parts or any part or element."
"included, adj. 1. enclosed; embraced; comprised. 2. Bot. not projecting beyond the mouth of the corolla, as stamens or a style." Note that here, even the Botanical meaning is a confining use!
Now, Roget's Thesaurus:"include, v,f. comprise, comprehend, contain, admit, embrace, receive; enclose, circumscribe, compose, incorporate, encompass; recon or number among, count in; refer to, place under, take into account." So, when you see "including" or "includes," whether in normal usage or in a Federal Tax Law, understand that it is limited to the items spelled out in the Law.
Why is our Tax Code so complicated?Why do we have a 9,000 page Income Tax law that can't even define what it is taxing? The term INCOME is NOT defined, anywhere in the Internal Revenue Code!
If it is LEGAL, there is no reason why the Internal Revenue Code shouldn't be just a couple of pages long, and state clearly what is being taxed!
After all, the Income Tax in other countries is really very straight-forward. Take, for example, the PERSONAL INCOME TAX LAW OF MONGOLIA listed below.
If the Tax Code for a backward, primitive society like Mongolia can be so simple and understandable, what is the reason for how difficult and complicated the Tax Code for a sophisticated and advanced society like the United States is?
Perhaps, it's because it's purpose is to confuse and befuddle Americans so that they can be tricked into paying a tax for which they have NO liability!
How many times have you heard a politician tell you that the Income Tax Code was so confusing "...nobody can understand it!"? Well, have YOU tried to read it? With a little practice, it isn't all that difficult. But, the "powers-that-be" want you to believe that it is incomprehensible.
Perhaps the only reason Title 26 U.S.C. (the Internal Revenue Code) is such an enigma to millions of Americans is because it is intended to perpetrate a FRAUD upon the American people!
PERSONAL INCOME TAX LAW OF MONGOLIA
(Unofficial translation from Mongolian)
The purpose of the present Law is to impose taxes on personal income and to regulate relations arising from the payment of these taxes to the budget.
The legislation of personal income tax comprises of the General Law of Taxation, the present Law and the other legislation. Article 3. Taxpayer
1. A citizen of Mongolia and a foreign resident and a foreign person without citizenship of Mongolia shall be the Taxpayer. 2. A person staying in Mongolia for 183 days and more shall be considered to be a resident to Mongolia. 3. A resident taxpayer shall pay taxes on income from sources within and outside of Mongolia. 4.
