Since aliens who reside illegally in the US are not “US Persons”, and are outside of the IRS compliance system, in that there is no way to enforce any reporting requirements on them, and because the present regime has declared its policy of not deporting illegal aliens who commit minor crimes, I am seeking to become an illegal alien in the land of my birth.
Because the US presumes the power to force me to report and pay taxes on income I earn outside of the US (unlike almost evey other country) it seems that is the only way I can be free of this particular tyranny.
Our poor-mouth government might be able to garner extra (sarc/) revenue if they made those 40-some percent who don’t pay taxes, pay them. The only ones who suffer is the middle class...we have to cover for both sides of the aisle = from the “poor” who pay no (or not much) taxes to the “rich” who know how to hide their wealth.
But as an aside, rumor has it that revenue is NOT the problem, spending is. Who’da thunk? UGH!
