Cool Tax Protester Argument

Check out this argument from case decided by the Tax Court yesterday:

Petitioner contends that the section 6651 and 6654 additions to tax are not applicable because her parents raised her to believe that the Internal Revenue Service was an illegal organization and taught her not to file tax returns or pay taxes. As a result, petitioner believes that if she ever filed a return or paid taxes she would be "disowned" by her parents.

The case is Gillings v. Commissioner, T.C. Memo. 2006-65.

If you really want to protest your taxes, you should not pay your tax and then when the IRS puts a lien on your property or serves you with a summons, claim that they didn't follow correct procedures. They'll win eventually, but it'll cost them.

By the by, I never told you Xeno, but I like your new car. How's it drive?
