Yes, I still need an answer.
I agree that is what appears to be the case. That is also what the IRS wants everyone to believe. However, the U.S.C. and regulations actually state otherwise. See these sources,
26 U.S.C. Sec. 3401(c ) Employee
26 CFR §31.3401(C )-1. Employee
As I understand these sections, that means I am NOT a member of either of the three classes of "taxpayers" referred to in Section 6331.
Do you have any sources to rebut this conclusion????
That appears to be the case. However, it is not my position that is offered here. It is Section 6331(a) that links that chapter to Section 3401(d) for the definition of "employer". In doing that that bring in that chapter's definition of "employee" since that term ["employee"] is used in the section 3401(d) definition of "employer".
You appear to be unwilling to get into the details of the clear language of Section 6331. If you connect all the confusing dots the picture becomes clear. The statutes and regulations don't appear to be in conflict with the Constitution and the U.S. Supreme Court. It is in the intentional and fraudulent misapplication of the statutes and regulations where the crimes take place. [Now THAT is my opinion, based on what I read in all of the sources mentioned.]
There is no need to continue with this discussion. On this issue let's just agree to disagree and let it go at that. I am NOT a ".... "taxpayer", "officer", "employee", or "elected official" of the United States...."
I did my research before I asked the question. It appears that you did not do much research before attempting a useful answer. I'm "engaged" in an ongoing challenge with the IRS at this time, so I've had the opportunity to dig deeply into this issue. I'm also a member of Pre Paid Legal so I've checked with other attorneys for input. It appears that most in the legal community tend to give advice related to keeping all [alleged] "taxpayers" paying their "fair share" [whatever that is]. Anyway, I thought I would try your service to see how you would respond. So I did. My opinion is unchanged. I'm not interested in keeping things the was they've always been when I can prove [based on the language of the statutes and regulations] that crimes are being committed against non-taxpayers by our "so called" leaders.
So, as I suggested before, let's just agree to disagree and let it go at that.
