Luther Strange, United States Senator, Alabama, responds to a question regarding the corrupt Internal Revenue Service (IRS) L I a R S, with incorrect information and a non-answer


LUTHER STRANGE

ALABAMA

326 RUSSELL BUILDING

WASHINGTON, DC 20510

(202) 224-4124

United States Senate

August 3, 2017

Thank you for contacting me about the income tax and the Sixteenth Amendment

I appreciate hearing from you on this issue

On February 3, 1913, the states ratified the Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution, which gave Congress the power to tax the income of individuals

In Brushaber v. Union Pacific Railroad, the Supreme Court ruled that the Sixteenth Amendment was not in violation of the Fifth Amendment prohibition on the seizure of property without due process

The court also ruled that the income tax does not violate Article I, Section 8 of the Constitution, which requires all indirect taxes to be imposed with geographical uniformity

In Bowers v. Kerbaugh-Empire Co. the Court further ruled that the Sixteenth Amendment made income tax a levy on gains instead of a direct tax

I share your concerns that the Internal Revenue Code (IRC) has grown far too complicated

I am committed to working with my colleagues in the Senate to achieve comprehensive tax reform that brings simplicity to the IRC and economic growth

President Trump has proposed a bold plan to cut rates, reduce tax brackets, and provide relief to families

As discussions regarding tax reform continue, I will keep your views in mind

It is an honor to serve the people of Alabama in Washington

Please contact me about other issues of importance to you

Sincerely,

Luther Stramge

United States Senator

This is an incorrect statement
………………………………………………..
Mr. Chief Justice White delivered the opinion of the court

(Page 107)
………………………………………………..
But aside from the obvious error of the proposition intrinsically considered, it manifestly disregards the fact that by the previous ruling it was settled that the provisions of the Sixteenth Amendment conferred no new power of taxation but simply prohibited the previous complete and plenary power of income taxation possessed by Congress from the beginning from being taken out of the category of indirect taxation to which it inherently belonged

(Page 112)

Stanton v. Baltic Mining Company
………………………………………………..
………………………………………………..
The Sixteenth Amendment does NOT purport to confer power to levy income taxes in a generic sense, as that authority was already possessed, …

(Pages 1-2)

(Pages 17-18)
………………………………………………..
Mr. Chief Justice White delivered the opinion of the court

(Page 9)
………………………………………………..
That the authority conferred upon Congress by §8 of Article I “to lay and collect taxes, duties, imposts and excises” is exhaustive and embraces every conceivable power of taxation has never been questioned, or if it has, has been so often authoritatively declared as to render it necessary only to state the doctrine

(Page 12)
………………………………………………..
And it has also never been questioned from the foundation, without stopping to determine under which of the separate headings the power was properly to be classed, that there was authority given, as the part was included in the whole, to lay and collect income taxes

(Pages 12-13)
