“We the people must Abolish the IRS and Personal Income Tax
Taxes on imports, Washington, Hamilton, and Madison agreed were the way to finance government. Taxes on incomes and exports were prohibited by the Constitution. Our Founding Fathers wanted foreigners to carry as much of our tax load as possible. Is this discrimination? Of course. But the first bill out of Congress was the Tarriff Act of 1789.” – Patrick J. Buchanan, Day of Reckoning p.202

It was the progressive movement that brought us the Personal Income Tax. Thus began the decline of America’s competitiveness.

If We the People were to abolish the IRS and the Personal Income tax, how would We the People fund the necessary functions of the government We created and We gave authority to?

1. We would seek out and eliminate highly inefficient government programs;

2. We would begin to phase out government programs that are duplicated at the state level and/or not allowed under the US Constitution; and,

3. We would reduce the budget back to 1990 levels of spending;

4. The government (Federal, State and Local) would still collect the following taxes and fees:

Accounts Receivable Tax

Automobile Registration Tax

Building Permit Tax

Capital Gains Tax


CDL License Tax

Cigarette Tax

Corporate Income Tax – (Nearly Equal to the US Department of Defense Budget pre 9/11)

Court Fines (Indirect Taxes)

Dog License Tax

Death Tax

EPA Fines

Estate Tax

FCC Fines

Federal Unemployment Tax (FUTA)

Fishing License Tax

Food License Tax

Fuel Permit Tax

FTA Fines

Gasoline Tax (42 Cents Per Gallon) – (Nearly Equal to the US Department of transportation budget)

Hunting License Tax

Inventory Tax

Liquor Tax

Local Income Tax

Luxury Taxes

Marriage License Tax

Medicare Tax

OSHA Fines

Parking Meters

Property Tax – (Used to pay for local schools and other local usage)

Real Estate Tax

Septic Permit Tax

Service Charge Taxes

Social Security Tax

Road Usage Taxes (Truckers)

Sales Taxes

Recreational Vehicle Tax

Road Toll Booth Taxes

School Tax

State Income Tax

State Unemployment Tax (SUTA)

Tangible Property Tax

Tariffs (Import taxes)

Telephone Federal Excise Tax

Telephone Federal, State and Local Surcharge Taxes

Telephone Minimum Usage Surcharge Tax

Telephone Recurring and Non-Recurring Charges Tax

Telephone Usage Charge Tax

Toll Bridge Taxes

Toll Tunnel Taxes

Traffic Fines

Trailer Registration Tax

Utility Taxes

Vehicle License Registration Tax

Vehicle Sales Tax

Watercraft Registration Tax

Well Permit Tax

Workers Compensation Tax


So, there would be plenty of revenue to operate the government without the personal income tax. In fact, after the IRS collects the personal income tax and pays for operating itself and pays interest on borrowed money there is nothing left. The IRS does not contribute to operating other Federal Government departments. So, the real question is, “what will you do with all of that extra money you get to keep?”

Watch this exposé on the personal income tax…

    Is that a political party? If so, is it a right wing minor party, or what?

    If not, what is the alt party connection?

    I can think of some, btw, but they should be made explicit.

    Also, headline seems editorial without the author’s name – although I don’t know that Pitts is the author, I seem to remember seeing this passed around as a forward on email years ago.

    Paulie–title is editorial and I don’t see an alt party connection. It needs to be made more explicit. I can’t pull this down now (on a mobile phone).

    I have listen to Will Pitts when he calls into radio shows here in FL. This guy is a kook+! I agree with him on this issue, but this guy isn’t smart enough to write this. It’s someone else’s writing.

  5. Ad Hoc

    As if those taxes weren’t bad enough.. now there’s a new “email chain forwarding tax”! It’s true.
