The fact that it's not on the Constitution doesn't mean it's not legal, bro. As long as it's not strictly forbidden, it's technically allowed, because the regulation will have to come from other sources.
yeah TMC is totally right. sorry migs.
The 16th Amendment states that there can be no new powers of taxation by the governement. This means Income tax over there is illegal. The states never agreed to vote that that tax is legal, so nothing changed, so Income tax is illegal
Not really. This is the 16th amendment's text:The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration.
It never says that income taxes are forbidden. Quite the opposite. It allows and even encourages taxes from whatever source the Congress wants to tax. It even allows the Congress to set taxes without any kind of apportionment (that is, distribution) between States based on census.
the Sixteenth Amendment does not contain the words "repeal" or "repealed", the Amendment is ineffective to change the law. The income tax is an unconstitutional direct tax that should be apportioned (divided equally amongst the population of the various states). Several tax protesters assert that the Congress has no constitutional power to tax labor or income from labor, citing a variety of court cases. These arguments include claims that the word "income" as used in the Sixteenth Amendment cannot be interpreted as applying to wages; that wages are not income because labor is exchanged for them; that taxing wages violates individuals' right to property, and several others.
You see, the whole argument is more based on the fact that ALL Income tax in the U.S.A. does not go to the people, for use in infrustructure and so forth, but instead goes to the profits of the bankers that own the Federal Reserve. You see, the Federal Reserve OWNS the currency and so OWNS ALL MONEY in the U.S.A and they charge interest for the use of the currency by the U.S. people.
That's the stupid thing and it exists in all developed countries, as the Rothschilds and their cousins (such as Rockefellers, Morgans, Warburgs etc.) own the Central banks.
As for the definition of "INCOME" in the U.S.A. - It used to mean "profits" not "wages or salary", as that is payment in exchange for services.
You see, the U.S. has many taxes and those taxes cover the infrustructure, such as Education, roads etc. The Income Tax goes straight to the Federal Reserve for profit and is not used for the people of the U.S.
