Arguments on the "unconstitutionality" of income tax: …

And, it is the store, the tax collector, that is made liable for the
payment of the tax to the Treasury, not the customers, the actual
taxpayers. Finally, if the tax collector (the store) fails the duty
to collect the sales tax as required, it is again the tax collector
(that store), and not the taxpayer, that is punished for that failure
and made liable for penalties, fines, and additions to tax thereby
incurred. The collection of the federal income tax is obviously
properly effected under the true provisions of the Subtitle A statutes
in exactly the same indirect manner with the “Withholding Agent” being
cast in the role of the “store”, as the tax collector.

Is it true that there’s no law saying I have to pay income taxes

This code section says that it is the Withholding Agents who are
responsible for and must pay the penalties, interest, and additions to
tax that are due on the income tax that was not properly withheld,
reported, and paid into the Treasury. It is not the actual foreign
taxpayer who is penalized by any of these penalties or additions by
this statute, it is the tax collector, or Withholding Agent, who is
penalized. Again, this keeps the tax and its enforcement under the
statutes, indirect. If the actual taxpayers were made subject to
interest, penalties and additions to tax that would be
unconstitutionally direct taxation without apportionment and would
also be a violation of the Constitution.

Seattle Income Tax -- Unconstitutional and Bad …

So “taxable income” is taxable at X, Y or Z percent. That still does not clarify what constitutes taxable income. When I trade my time, which has a value, for money, this is not income, it is an even trade. This is in my opinion the interesting argument as to why most Americans might not owe taxes – since they have no taxable income to be taxed.

Firm - Lee Hishammuddin Allen & Gledhill

Is it true that there’s no law saying I have to pay income taxes? This is a common question on tax forums and discussion boards. Many websites and publications argue that paying taxes is illegal, immoral, unconstitutional, dishonest — basically every synonym for evil except “fattening”. The famous tax protestor calls income taxes “The Biggest Con.” The rise of popular libertarian candidates like Ron Paul has caused many people to scrutinize the Constitution and reconsider current tax rates.

In other words, it’s not practically effective. But let’s suspend our disbelief for a bit, and ask what would happen if people started winning these cases — if the jury agreed that the government had accidentally omitted a crucial clause from a critical sentence, and nobody legally owed income taxes. What would happen is that Congress would hastily meet, add back the offending clause, and be done with it. After all, they passed the Sixteenth Amendment specifically to authorize income taxes. If they hadn’t meant to make income taxes the law, they wouldn’t have rewritten the constitution.
