Taxation by Misrepresentation

TaxationAll IRS processes and procedures are, in substance and effect, simply the ancient English revenue processes and procedures employed by the king’s revenue officials in the Exchequer in 1791 dressed up in modern garb.

The thesis of this book by John Benson is that, based upon Murray, G.M. Leasing, and the government’s admission to the Supreme Court in 1977, and put into plain English, all IRS processes and procedures are, in substance and effect, simply the ancient English revenue processes and procedures employed by the king’s revenue officials in the Exchequer (Treasury) in 1791 dressed up in modern garb.

To be sure, the author claims, the words used are different and not easily understood. However, as the Murray Court stated clearly, “The name bestowed upon it cannot affect its constitutional validity.” 59 U.S. 272, 276 (1856). Link.

Therefore, John claims, in order to understand today’s tax processes and procedures, you must understand the ancient processes employed by the Exchequer, some dating back in time before King John was forced to sign the Magna Charta, the Great Charter of Liberties, on the Plains of Runnymede in 1215.
