Good idea. Do what they do to us, flood them with paperwork!
I looked into this. It seems my info is about 4 years out of date. Effective April 14, 2005, IRS passed a new reg that relieved employers of the responsibility of submitting W-4s to IRS, except when specifically requested. In the announcement, IRS claimed they had enough info elsewhere to detect abuses, without having copies of the W-4s. So, presently, employers should not automatically be sending any W-4s to IRS. Rest easy.
It is a great idea-the Feds depend on the landslide of money they get on April 15. Now you have about 65 days to get this organized.
A little more than that LOL! 2008 taxes were Bush Admin. I’m thinking April 15, 2010 for all the Zer0’s tax increases in 2009.
Now, that is an excellent idea! Clog the system, if nothing else, and make a very public point at the same time.
That could actually be done! LOL! The forms are free at the post office...
Or, we could all pick up some extra tax forms, scrawl nasty notes across them, then mail them to the IRS.
The thought coming into my mind, is that Americans hate our tax system, but few ever take the time to honestly communicate their disagreements to their government.
It would be perfectly legitimate to write letters to the head of the IRS, telling them that the progressive income tax, and our complicated tax code is punitive, and just plain wrong. There's nothing immoral or illegal with that at all, but how many of us have ever done such a thing?
I don't know what sort of activism is going to produce the effect we all want. I just know that some form of protest on a massive scale is needed to change things.
Haven’t you heard? There is no legal authority for tax on anything except business profits, plus specific “indirect” taxes on gasoline, tobacco, etc. By numerous Supreme court decisions, wages and salaries are non-taxable “profitless” exchanges of services for money or other considerations.
Deduct 100% of your earnings, and challenge IRS to show the authorizing legislation for taxing them. They have never been able to respond to such challenges, and have in recent years lost about 22 out of 22 jury trials on the subject.
Here’s the bigger picture:
