How to STOP the IRS


This material

was originally published in January, 2004, as the culmination of more than 30,000 hours1 of personal research, building upon the efforts — and results — of countless others, spanning decades. In 2009, it became a CD-ROM2.

My goal, from the beginning, was to serve a two-fold purpose:

  1. to educate; and,
  2. to detail a process that had worked successfully for years.

The education is invaluable, as the concepts and process explained herein help you lay the foundation for freeing yourself from unwarranted government intrusions into your life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness (most often obtained through property).

The Educational Aspects

There is more to the educational aspects of this than mere recitation of statutes and regulations. There is more than a simple (or even complex) analysis.

I approached this project [begun in 1999] from the perspective of conveying an understanding of the POWER of the Citizen, and have used the techniques and philosophies of many notables, modern and ancient, American and otherwise, to that end.

Philosophy: “Principle-Centered Living"

“Begin with the end in mind,” is, of course, one of Steven Covey’s, “7 Habits of Highly Effective People,” and it is excellent advice.

YOUR GOAL IS NOT TO DEFEAT TAXATION! "[R]evenue is the essential engine" of government (paraphrasing Federalist 31, by Alexander Hamilton), and you will not achieve such a goal. You can, however, establish whether such a relationship between you and the government exists.

Begin with that end in mind.

Another of Covey’s, “7 Habits,” is to, “Change the Paradigm,” and, “put the Big Stuff first.”

Covey provided an excellent example of this in a PBS presentation, where he uses an audience member to illustrate — with a clear bucket, rocks, pebbles and sand — that if you fill your time and space with the, “little stuff,” (the pebbles; unimportant details) you can’t seem to fit the, “Big Stuff,” (the rocks; i.e., Home, Family, etc.) in; but that, if you put the, “Big Stuff,” in first, you can fit all of the little stuff around it.

I recommend you acquire the PBS Video; it can assist you in attaining a proper perspective, and is well worth watching. It will Change Your Paradigm.

Other Covey, “Habits,” are, “Think Win/Win,” and “Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood.”

If you can establish that you are not properly subject to a tax, while simultaneously acknowledging the government’s general power to tax — properly — isn’t that Win/Win?

Think Win/Win.

The way to achieve Win/Win is, first, to understand the language of the law; you must learn to speak a language that sounds very similar, with words that are phonetically and physically identical to words in your language, but which have entirely different meanings. As Covey said:

Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood.


Anthony Robbins, in his Personal Power® programs, has often used a process he refers to as, “re-framing.” For example he once, “re-framed,” a complaint about a high tax liability (a particularly appropriate example) by responding that the complainer must have, “had a very good year.”

Another Robbins technique I’ve used successfully (I even did it once, “remotely,” by advance-scripting a court session for a Client) is, “Breaking the Pattern.” Once you understand the choreographed pattern of the law, and how it is used as a weapon, you will be able to Break the Pattern. Breaking the Pattern makes it easier to discover, “mis-steps,” i.e., failures in procedure, that will support your position. If you have Tony Robbins’ tapes or videos, use them. If not, you may want to consider acquiring them. They could very much be worth it.


The process is not for the faint of heart, and I don’t mean those with cardiovascular challenges. You will be taking on the world’s only remaining superpower3. You’d better be prepared for that.

This material will provide you with knowledge.

It is up to you to use that knowledge to its greatest effect. That means you must not only master the material; you must master how to articulate the knowledge the material brings. The knowledge alone is only potential power, like battery voltage; useless unless it is put to work. The articulation of that knowledge is the realization of the power potential; it is the application of the voltage to a task, which, met with resistance, produces a power current.

I strongly recommend a course of study in public speaking, so that you will be able to articulate your position in a concise, comprehensible manner. A good course of study will teach not only how to speak, but how to listen; how to hear what is said, but also what is not said. My personal recommendation is that you join a Toastmasters club, as I have found great success through the skills I acquired in achieving the level of, “Competent Toastmaster.” But there are other courses/programs available, and you should choose the one that best fits your needs.

Enough of my tirade. Let’s Get Started.
