Payment providers like PayPal will have to start reporting as of January 1, 2011. Happy New Year from our leaders!

All payment providers like PayPal, Google Checkout, etc will have to start reporting your transactions to the IRS if your transactions total over $20,000 AND receive more than 200 payments in a year's time.

Find more information at paypal.com/irs

I would bet all the payment services will have a similar information page. We are signed up for others but have never been paid through them so no need to check them our closer at the moment.

The old gimmie pigs are squealing again. Whatever happened to make do or do without?

Sounds fair to me!

The 1939 Internal Revenue Manual stated that the Internal Revenue Service could tax businesses and Corporations, Federal Citizens, Foreign territories and States which the United States had Tax agreements with and later added the government employees because they were paid with federal money.

The People of the states were not taxed. The IRS tried it once and the supreme court ruled it unconstitutional. That was a direct tax and was unconstitutional.

The Federal Income Tax is a voluntary tax, unless you are a corporation or business withholding money from employee paychecks or a government employee or a resident of a federal territory, or a sailor, or Indian.

Local banks must report transactions over $10,000. I don't understand why they are holding out to $20,000 transactions for eBay, yahoo, etc.. Must be a misprint or did the United States raise the transactions to $20.000?

I don't make those kind of transactions very often.

I sit on anything over $10,000 until the deposit or withdrawal can go thru without being reported. LOL! Speaking of Unique Lies!

I wonder when it was truly considered a voluntary tax? IS that a defense?

The Federal Income Tax was voluntary to the sovereign people of the states the first day it was enacted. The Federal Reserve tried to make it mandatory, but the supreme court wouldn't allow it because it went against the constitution. There were no 14th Amendment Citizens back then to tax. Corporations paid the bills.

In 1867 Congress freed the slaves with the 13th Amendment from the white man. No state could have slaves any longer. Then one year later Congress placed these free slaves back into slavery under the Exclusive Jurisdiction of the Central Government by giving them limited Constitutional Rights which mainly consisted of Civil Rights granted by Congress. These citizens were made LIABLE for the Federal Income Tax. So then it was Corporations and 14th Amendment Citizens paying the tax. Then they were allowed to add government employees, including Judges, congressmen, politicians, etc. because they earned federal wages. (Matthew 22:21 Then saith he unto them, Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's.)

By doing this... Congress created a class of citizens who would be citizens of the US Central Government (Giving Congress Sovereignty over a class of people for the first time). This act was never revealed to the people and now the people think they are these U.S. Citizens who are under its exclusive jurisdiction. The Federal Government never had jurisdiction over the people until Congress created this class of citizens from the slaves and the citizens of its territories and possessions and Islands. These are the citizens under its exclusive jurisdiction, not the sovereign people.

Excise Taxes are for a Benefit or Privilege. We the people are the sovereignty and need no benefits nor Privileges. We have rights to do anything as long as we don't injure anyone or do property damage and don't violate another sovereigns rights.

Import, Export and Impost Taxes are International Taxes and not a tax on People.

A Direct Tax is a tax on property and is unconstitutional when applied to the sovereign people. (16th Amendment didn't change the original wording of the Constitution, because it was only rewording the Indirect Tax, not the Direct Tax, so Congress did not get any new powers with the 16th Amendment. No Direct Tax was enacted)

There are over 80 some taxes in this country which must be paid by persons liable. The key words are "PERSON MADE LIABLE" FOR a certain Tax or taxes.

For example if you sell liquor you must pay a liquor tax which is a stamp. Same with cigarettes. You MUST pay a tax if you sell cigarettes. Firearms, has a firearms tax which makes the Sellers LIABLE for the Tax. If you earn Interest on your money, you are made Liable for a Tax on your Interest. You are made Liable to pay a Tax on the PROFIT (Capital Gain) from the sell of your home. You are made LIABLE to pay Taxes on money won in lotteries, sweepstakes and Game Shows.

There are Implementing Regulations (Codes of Federal Regulations) which tells us which taxes must be paid and who is made Liable.

Federal Income Tax is a Part 1 Tax and there is no implementing regulations on the sovereign people to pay this tax.

The income tax is a voluntary tax. You agree to volunteer to pay the federal income tax when you fill out a w-4 form.

YOU ARE made LIABLE to pay Federal Income Taxes if you live in a federal Territory or Island or any place the U.S. Government has Exclusive Jurisdiction. You are also made LIABLE to pay the Federal Income taxes you withhold from an employee. You are made LIABLE to pay Federal Income Tax if you are in the service or a government employee, sailor, captain of a ship, commercial fisherman, operator of public transportation or an Indian.

Only other mandatory Federal Income Tax on a sovereign citizen is a Victory Tax after a war, but can only be for no longer than two (2) years. It is automatically repealed after two years.

All documents mailed or delivered by the IRS MUST BE Signed with the Notice "under the penalty of perjury" in order to be legal documents.

The IRS never sends out a piece of paper signed by an IRS employee, because that employee could go to prison for fraud, racketeering, grand theft, Grand Larceny, Perjury, Fraud, Conspiracy to commit Fraud, conversion of property, deprivation of rights under the color of law just to mention a few (all of Which are Federal Criminal Charges under Title 18 USC). They can also face civil charges under Title 42 USC.

For every law that says you have to pay Federal Income Tax, there are at least three laws that say you don't, "IF", you are NOT a Person made LIABLE for the Federal Income Tax.

The Federal Income Tax IS Constitutional "when applied to the Persons made Liable" and it is not a voluntary tax to these persons.

Boy, this sure opens up a lot of questions. I will have to take a closer look at W-4s. It would appear the only reason we pay taxes is because we "volunteer" by filling one of these out? Or did I just show why I am not a lawyer?

If you have ever been in the armed forces or been in civil service, you have no doubt been liable to pay the Federal Income Tax. You volunteered without ever knowing it.

Nothing wrong with paying Federal Income Tax because most people get it all right back when they file a return on April 15th or earlier. Some even get back more than they paid in.

So it isn't a bad thing for everyone!
