1. Nobody likes the IRS. If there is a person out there who actually likes sending in their tax returns every year they must be an alien. The only people who like doing this are people who work at the IRS because it keeps them employed.
2. It is unconstitutional. No where in the U.S Constitution does it make it legal for the U.S Government to tax its own citizens. However, one of our greatest Presidents of all time never has this brought up against him. Good old “Honest” Abe Lincoln was the ass clown who brought the IRS (then Bureau of Internal Revenue) into existence with the Revenue Act of 1862 to help fund the Civil War. Obviously he did not get the chance to stop this theft from its new citizens when John Wilkes Booth killed him. Government liked this new found revenue from all of its old now new states and continued with it.
3. The IRS always makes people bring up that stupid question of “everybody has to pay their fair share.” Who decides what is fair? You don’t. Do you even know what fair is? If somebody ever says that after you tell them the IRS is one of the biggest wastes of space, please slap them. Then tell them to give you all of their money and that you will give back what is only deemed fair by you. See if that changes their mind.
4. The IRS provides no “services” to the individual. Have you ever sent in your income tax returns, wrote your check and wondered what you spent money on this past year to have the U.S Government charge you anything. I cannot think of one thing the U.S Government has done with my tax return money for me…ever. Everything we use that has some sort of Government function attached to it is already funded by a different tax, ie. roads are paid by gas taxes. The worst part is that you do not even get a receipt. Imagine going to your local dry cleaners and paying for your laundry. You always get a receipt for services rendered. The IRS does not have to do this. This just “steal” from you without giving you a receipt. If you were a business owner and ran your operations like this do you think you would have any return customers? Probably not. Instead of doing your income taxes this year, call the IRS and ask for a receipt for what services you used from the US Government. When one is shown, then pay.
5. The IRS in 2008 had a operating budget of $11.1 BILLION dollars (up from $10.4 Billion in 2007) and you know its going to be more in 2009 and into the future. Again, what do “we the people” get from paying taxes? I still can’t think of anything. Imagine saving $11.1 Billion dollars in tax payer money every year on something that has no value. The U.S could start paying back some that $11 Trillion of national debt (as of Jan 2009) it owes or the $4.5 Billion the U.S pays JUST IN INTEREST ever year.
6. The IRS creates $200 billion dollars in none value spending ever year by American citizens. That money is spent by you and I to hire tax accountants whose job it is to make sure we have done our taxes right. Their whole livelihood revolves around the theft of money from the IRS and then telling you that its ok if the IRS steals because they need you to pay them so they can buy food for their family. Sure, if the IRS closed, all of the tax accountants at H&R Block and tax lawyers around the country would be out of a job the next day but being a auditor for a company would provide more value for the economy than doing taxes. The $200 billion figure is probably a light figure. It does not take into account what you need to do to get to the point of filing taxes. You might need to take time off of work to drive to your accountant. This is time away from making money and time spent burning fuel in your car.
7. The IRS hates trees. Its tax code book is over 67,000 pages. Can you image what a book would look like that has 67k pages!! This equates to about one tree just to make that book. That is just the book to describe how stupid our income tax system is. Who the hell would ever want to read it. I bet you that its been added onto with the same laws or codes so many times because nobody at the IRS wanted to check to see if some law was written on page 27,272. As of July 2008 the IRS collected 59 million paper tax forms for the 2007 income tax return season. Does it get you thinking how many forms have been printed over the last 100 years. The U.S population in 2009 is 305 million. So lets take 100 million adults a year x 100 years = OVERFLOW on my calculator. It does not want to calculate it because its knows how asinine this calculation is and does not want to know this number at all because it will start crying. Some 87 million filed taxes online in 2008. I know they are moving towards doing everything online but now the budget for their IT department is going to go up.
8. The IRS hates businesses a lot. With the recession of 2009 in full effect, the IRS is putting major corporations out of business. Here is one that hits home for me since I am in Detroit, MI. As we all know, Ford, GM, and Chrysler are hurting and it looks like one of them is going bankrupt. GM and Chrysler have asked for $7 Billion each from the second bailout plan to stay afloat. In 2007 General Motors paid $37 BILLION DOLLARS in income taxes. Here is a great idea. Why not give them back the $37 BILLION they ALREADY earned and let them stay in business. Do you think GM could develop a car that got 100 mpg with $37 Billion in research and development? I think so. Heck, they could probably build the Starship Enterprise to run off of shampoo with that kind of money. Instead the IRS wants to bankrupt GM by stealing from them and depress the whole Metro Detroit area so people lose jobs causing more homes in Michigan to go into foreclosure.
9. The employees at the IRS are given decent salaries with full benefits and a pension. Some IRS agents make over $100k a year. I know because when I use to work at Quicken Loans as a mortgage banker one IRS agent was a client of mine. He made $105k a year and had only been there for 2 years. Where in the private sector can you make $105k after being at a job for 2 years unless you are a Doctor? You can’t. IRS agents get guns. This means if you don’t pay your income taxes they can shut down your business or barge into your home demanding payment. If it was any other person off the street they would be called a thief, be arrested, and put in jail. Since the IRS agent has a badge it makes it ok though. This does happen. My same client told me about a story where he and some other ass clown agents had to shut down a car repair shop. It was the kind where dad and his sons were the mechanics, the cousins washed and detailed cars, and mom was the office manager. They could not afford to pay all of their taxes so the IRS put them out of business. Now all of them are out on the street with no income to buy food, pay rent, etc. Wouldn’t it be nice to throw the IRS out on the street.
10. Politicians use the IRS and income tax promises to get elected. Barack Obama was voted to President this year because he was not going to tax people who make below $250k a year. Of course he knew that less than 30% of the American population make above $250k. So why not vote for him. You are not going to be affected with your $50k salary. Even though 60% of the US income tax is paid by people who make over $250k. Its easier to tax those bastards who are doing something right. This is one way to get a lot of people to vote for you as some 65% did. Luckily for Barack Obama the word did not get out fast enough about Ron Paul. He was going to eliminate the IRS the day after getting elected and put 20% of your hard earned income back into your pocket regardless of how much you make. Read The Ron Paul Book.
