More Victories For The Rule Of Law- Page Fifty-Nine


Tens of thousands of readers of 'Cracking the Code- The Fascinating Truth About Taxation In America' have taken control of their own resources, in accordance with, and respect for, the law. The likely total amount reclaimed by these good Americans so far is upward of several billion dollars.


A few of these good American men and women-- such as those honored below-- are generous enough to send me the evidence of their victories in upholding the law, for the edification and inspiration of everyone. At the moment those shared refund checks, closing notices, and so forth total:




Adrian has launched the 2017 victory posts with this fine 100% refund of everything withheld from him during that year and given over to California as "income" tax:

Adrian got his educated return in early, and bless him for his refusal to be patient at getting his own money back in his own pocket where it belongs!


Roger secured this nice victory in January, after challenges to his withholding amounts and a well-answered "frivolous" allegation:

It'll be noted that this is a "change form", by which the United States agrees that Roger is due $17,798 back (which was everything withheld from him during 2014 under Chapter 24 provisions) while trying to keep the amounts withheld under Chapter 21, for no defensible reason. (The validity of the tax related to either withholding protocol hinges on the same facts-- see this for a bit more on the subject.)

Here is Roger's filing; here is the initial challenge to his claim of amounts withheld (which was to ALL of the amounts withheld, btw); and here is Roger's response. Months later came this "frivolous" allegation in hope of frightening Roger into withdrawing his refund claim, to which Roger responded with this.

After all that, at long last came the acknowledgement above showing the United States admission that Roger had done nothing qualifying for the tax, but proposing to return only two-thirds of his money. Roger has responded with an "I do not agree" which the IRS followed with a repeat of its "frivolous" threat-- we'll watch the further progress of this victory-in-progress with considerable interest.




(FICA withholdings are not included here; Shawn chose not to pursue his claim for their return for reasons of his own.)


Mario Dominguez


Here is the filing that produced this complete refund with interest, after a modest bit of fussing over Mario's identity, either legitimately or in a cheap effort to intimidate or discourage him. Here is the identity challenge, and here is Mario's thoroughly bitch-slapping response.

Rudy and Hody List

Here is the return for 2017 filed by Rudy and Hody to produce this victory.

TJ Hendrickson

Here is the return that secured this complete refund of everything withheld and given to Michigan during 2017.

Mike and Lynn

The refund amount proposed consists of only what was withheld from Mike and Lynn as nominal "federal income tax", with the IRS slyly proposing to just keep the FICA withheld, in the apparent hope that Mike and Lynn won't understand that it has no basis for doing so, or will view this as a good "compromise settlement" in exchange for not having to go to any further trouble to get all their property back, as they are entitled to do.

But as part of the paperwork with this refund notice, the IRS has already acknowledged that Mike and Lynn had no "wages" in 2016 (the "AGI" reported consists solely of "unemployment" benefits):

Thus, it has been admitted that the couple did nothing on which a liability for FICA taxes could arise, and by the government's own declarations it is established that Mike and Lynn are entitled to the return of those withholdings... which brings us to the really interesting part of this story.

Go back to the refund notice above and observe that in the small text to the left of the "Summary" it says,, "We believe there's a miscalculation on your 2016 Form 1040, which affects the following area of your return: Tax Payments. We made changes to your return that correct this error. As a result, you are due a refund of $35,006.38"

Now look at the top line of the "Your payments and credits" section in the report above from the second page of the CP12 (which can be seen in its entirety here). It says, "Income tax withheld, line 64" and shows a figure of $34,568.00.* But this number is simply the amount actually withheld and reclaimed by Mike and Lynn on line 64 of their return-- $61,768.55-- less the FICA amounts withheld which made up nearly half the total.

In other words, the IRS proposed changes (and despite the "We made changes to your return..." language these are just proposals with which the service hopes Mike and Lynn will go along) is really just a self-serving fabrication, pretending that the other $27K+ wasn't withheld at all (which would mean that the folks paying Mike and Lynn enough to have withheld $34K+ in nominal federal income tax simply didn't bother withholding any FICA... Oh, what a tangled web...).

Mike and Lynn will need to go to a little more trouble yet to get all their property back. But the government has already admitted it is owed to them, and that's way more than half the battle.

Well done, Mike and Lynn!


Watch out for that robot! I think it's going to explode!!

(*Interestingly, the $34,568.00 is a sloppily calculated difference, arrived at by dropping all non-whole-dollars without regard to the rounding rules. Whoever is responsible for this faked-up "amount withheld" was apparently moving fast and with a sweaty brow and guilty conscience.)


Scott Hannon

SCOTT HANNON has cracked the wall in The Heart of Dixie. Scott has forced Alabama to acknowledge the truth about the income tax uniquely revealed in CtC and return every penny withheld from him during 2017 and given over to the state for income taxes it now has agreed Scott never owed.

See Scott's claim here.

Andrew MacTaggart

Andrew has secured a complete refund from the feds of everything withheld in 2017-- which, as shown in his filing, was all FICA taxes (you know, the kind "you can't get back"... unless you're CtC-educated...):

David & Dorothy Weeks

David and Dorothy share a complete refund of everything sought. This doesn't amount to quite all that was withheld, because the better part of what comes in to their household is David's taxable federal pension. But the IRS recognizes that everything else is outside its reach, and returned every penny:

Here is the filing that produced this victory for the rule of law.

Bradley & Sheri Edwards

Brad and Sheri have shared a recently-secured complete refund from California of everything withheld and given over to the state during 2016:

Even in the face of the requirements of the law, the junkyard dog still tries to play its losing hand occasionally. Ironically, it is these sporadic spasms of resistance that offer the most telling evidence of the truth about the tax...

Despite the fact that those whose victories are on display here did nothing but insist that the law be applied as it is written, they did so in the face of fearful threats and cunning disinformation from the beneficiaries of corruption.  Their actions took great courage and commitment, and I salute them all.

NOTE: Whether any given individual is entitled to a refund depends on a number of different factors, and no one should presume that they are so entitled simply because they see that others are.  Each person should educate himself or herself about the particulars of the law, and make his or her own determination in this regard.
