I don't know if this is a civil question or not: can I be arrested for breaking a law that doesn't exist
Hello and thank you for your question. For over 34 years I have answered questions just like yours. And I look forward to assisting you.

All persons who earn income in excess of $600 must file tax returns. Likewise, if you owe taxes, you can be criiminally prosecuted for failure to file and pay taxes. And these laws have existed since the 1940's and many people have been arrested and gone to jail.
