Please be aware that the IRS emphasizes to taxpayers, promoters, and return preparers that there is no right to exemption from federal income tax for Native Americans under an unspecified "Native American Treaty." Any return position based on an unspecified "Native American Treaty" has no merit and is frivolous. As a general rule, Native Americans are subject to federal income tax just like every other American. see for reference - http://www.irs.gov/irb/2006-15_IRB/ar09.html
Please see examples provided by the IRS.
The Fourteenth Amendment doesn't provide different treatment:
All persons born or naturalized in the United States, and subject to the jurisdiction thereof, are citizens of the United States and of the State wherein they reside.
Let me know if you need any help.
My complaint is this The main right of being a citizen is the right to vote.
Yet we (in some states were not allowed to vote)so the 14th amendment
does not apply to native americans.We are wards of the US. I have never
heard of a ward having to pay to be taken care of.So the IRS cant use the 14th
Amendment to tax us. When the Constution says except Indians not Taxed
Nobody likes o pay taxes....
The tax protest movement is well known.
Some arguments are also known - for instance:
-- the income tax cannot apply to individual citizens, as that is a "direct tax" prohibited by the Constitution.
-- requirements to file income tax return is a violation of 4th Amendment rights
The US constitution indeed doesn't even mention the income tax liability - and that is another argument against income tax liability.
All these arguments have a long history of court rulings.

While you may argue differently - we all de-facto are required to pay income tax.
