Where: At the Freedom law School's Freedom Rally to be held at Sheraton Hotel in Newport Beach, California on March 13-14th, Mr. Banister will share his findings and Report with the American People.

To: All Freedom Loving Americans Date: February 25, 1999 From: Peymon Mottahedeh, President Freedom Law School

Dear Fellow American,

Over the last 14 months, Freedom Law School along with Bill Conklin, Free Enterprise Society, Attorney Larry Becraft, Devvy Kidd and Bill Benson have been in communication with Joseph R. Banister, who is a Special Agent (Criminal Investigation Division) of the IRS in San Jose, California, and educated Mr. Banister as to how and why there is NO LAW THAT REQUIRES ANY AMERICAN TO FILE AND PAY INCOME TAX!

Mr. Banister with his own time and money has verified that:

1.There is NO federal STATUTE (law written by Congress of the United States) which REQUIRES ANY AMERICAN TO FILE AND PAY INCOME TAX. 2.The 16th (the INCOME TAX) AMENDMENT of the U.S. Constitution, which was NOT PROPERLY RATIFIED INTO THE U.S. CONSTITUTION. 3.The U.S. Government operates NOT by revenues from the Income Tax, but by borrowing MONEY, which has been CREATED OUT OF THIN AIR, from the Federal Reserve Banks.

At the bottom of this message you will find a copy of the E-Mail which Mr. Banister sent me. Mr. Banister had written a 90 page report of his investigation of the Income Tax on February 11, 1999. This report is fully backed up by references to the U.S. Constitution, the IRS Code, Internal Revenue Manuals and court cases.

Mr. Banister presented this 90 page report to his superiors and asked them to present it to the highest ranks of the IRS, up to and including the Commissioner of IRS, Mr. Charles O. Rossotti. Mr. Banister informed the IRS leadership that unless they could point-by-point refute his findings, Mr. Banister would resign from his position INSTEAD OF ENFORCING A NON-EXISTENT LAW!

Apparently the Commissioner of IRS, Mr. Charles O. Rossotti and the high level officials of the IRS, who each have taken an oath to "uphold and defend the U.S. Constitution from all enemies, foreign or domestic", have VOLUNTARILY chosen to violate the law against the American People by efusing to review and consider the findings of Mr. Banister, which squarely challenged the lawful basis of the IRS enforcing a NON-EXISTENT and VOLUNTARY INCOME TAX on the American people by use of VIOLENT FORCE!!!

On February 17, Mr. Banister was called into his Chief's office. Mr Banister was informed that his report had been reviewed "by the highest levels of the IRS". Mr. Banister was given a memorandum which in part read: "The Internal Revenue Service will not be responding to your request and will provide you with the necessary paperwork to tender your resignation. You will be placed on administrative leave effective upon receipt of this memorandum for a period of seven calendar days to consider what actions you wish to take."

Today, February 25, 1999, the anniversary of the alleged ratification of the 16th (income tax) Amendment, Mr. Banister resigned from the IRS so that he may freely and fully inform the American people of his findings regarding the income tax and the U.S. Government.

Mr. Banister will be appearing at Freedom Law School's 1999 Freedom Rally on March 13-14th, at Sheraton Hotel (949)833-0570, 4545 Mac Arthur Blvd, Newport Beach, California to share his findings and release his report: "INVESTIGATING THE INCOME TAX: A PRELIMINARY REPORT" to the American People.

Below is the full text of Mr. Banister's E-Mail to Freedom Law School

Dear Friends:

Well, the day of reckoning has arrived. On February 11, 1999, in my capacity as a Special Agent and federal law enforcement officer sworn to support and defend the Constitution of the United States, I submitted a "preliminary report" to the Chief of the IRS Criminal Investigation Division for the Central California District. My report summarized my findings regarding allegations that the income tax and filing of federal income tax returns is voluntary, that the 16th Amendment was never ratified, and that income taxes are not used to pay for daily government operations.

In order to ensure that unnecessary and unwarranted delay would not occur, I requested that my report be forwarded to top officials in the IRS up to and including Commissioner Charles O. Rossotti, and I respectfully requested that the Commissioner or his designee respond to the evidence in my report within 30 days. Today, my Chief called me into his office and gave me a memorandum. The memorandum dated February 17th, 1999, read in part:

The Internal Revenue Service will not be responding to your request and will provide you with the necessary paperwork to tender your resignation. You will be placed on administrative leave effective upon receipt of this memorandum for a period of seven calendar days to consider what actions you wish to take.

I was told that officials at the highest levels of the Internal Revenue Service were consulted regarding a response to my report. Apparently, I have now joined the ranks of every other taxpayer who ever was ignored or otherwise rebuffed by the Internal Revenue Service when they petitioned the IRS for a reasonable explanation. The only conclusion that I can reach is that those officials thought it was better to rebuff my request and pass up a golden opportunity to prove my research wrong than to have to admit that so-called "tax-protesters" and other supporters of the U.S. Constitution have been right all along. Ironically, had the IRS taken the time to address my concerns, or perhaps perform the simple task of proving the allegations wrong, I would have gladly been their spokesman advising taxpayers not to fall for these untrue allegations for the rest of my career.

As the memorandum states, I have until Friday, February 26th, 1999, the day after the 86th anniversary of the alleged ratification of the 16th Amendment, to tender my resignation. This is certainly a sad day in my life. Although I was hoping for a better result, I learned today after over two years of investigation that the Internal Revenue Service is everything that the so-called "tax protesters" said it was; non-responsive, unable to withstand scrutiny, tyrannical, and agency oblivious to the rule of law and the U.S. Constitution.

May God help us all. Joseph R. Banister

Gee, why not post this junk over at EZBoard where all the other half- baked revolutionaries and tax protesters hang out.

I don't mind paying taxes. Sure, there's a lot of waste. But on balance, I think I get good value for my money.

I wish I paid a million a year in taxes.
