Supremes docket income tax challenge

"Colorado man's challenge to IRS says wages don't count"

The government calls those who argue the income tax has no legal foundation “tax protesters” and labels their arguments “frivolous.” And usually judges toss their arguments out of court, assess them court costs on top of taxes, interest and penalties, and sometimes even threaten them if they file further cases.

But now the U.S. Supreme Court – the nine judges who sit on the bench in Washington by virtue of their selection by presidents and confirmation by the U.S. Senate – has docketed exactly that type of case.

The results? Who knows, considering the radical arguments offered by the pro se plaintiff, Jeffrey Thomas Maehr, a Colorado chiropractor who has been involved in a number of business ventures, including PureHealthSystems.com.

Among Maehr’s contentions is that while the government has the legal authority to tax, the Internal Revenue Service has used “unlawful, unconstitutional, unfair and biased” manipulations to assess income taxes on that which is not income – essentially salaries and wages.

Basing his argument on 10 years’ worth of research into tax law, he concludes that salaries and wages are the result of the mutual agreement among participants to exchange labor for money – and that’s not income.

Income, he said, is the increased value of an asset, such as interest on money in a bank account, which can be subjected ........

You call your childish example the study of economics?

It was a typical retort of one that knows he has lost the debate. None of your comments has any relation to economics; you were simply attempting to refute an obvious truism with childish rhetoric.

“No it is not equal, If i pay a 10% tax rate and i make $10,000 i pay $1000 if some one else makes $100,000 they pay $10,000 that is equal.”

First off, try writing like an adult and not a first grader. Are you really too lazy to find the Shift key? That shows disrespect of yourself and the people reading your scribble.

Second off, this is your statement that claims paying differing dollar amounts is equal. That is Communism. So, according to you, when you go to Wal-Mart you won’t mind prices being labeled as percentages of income just like government services: “Toothpaste: 0.001% of income”. For a poorer person, $0.50, for you, $1.29, for the ‘rich’ guy, $145, because percentages of income is “equal”, according to you.

When the Communists talked of implementing a “Progressive Tax” they also meant using “Percentage of Income” as that would mean the richer pay more and the poorer pay less. Combine that with the poor being able to vote themselves money from the treasury the Communists knew they could control all wealth and get their theft of money in place.

I quoted your comment. Nothing more needs to be said about your comment.


You must be so dumb that you did not pay any attention to the thread that i was commenting about.

Besides, road taxes are collected when you buy gas, don,t you know that or are you even old enough to drive? the ones who drive the most pays the the most gas tax which equals road tax.

School tax is collected with home owners property tax, what that means is that many people who do not even have kids are paying for the education of socialist snots like you.

At any rate another comment was that the people making more money should pay a higher percent than those making less money, i do not agree with that.

The term “wages” means remuneration for the purposes of paying into the social security program.

It would be a Subtitle C tax and there can not be a notice of deficiency filed for failing to pay a Subtitle C tax. The IRS does the bait and switch all the time in court. I think the real form is 88XX something, it’s a real income tax subtitle A tax, and then in court they switch the claim to 1040 and subtitle C.
