Representations and Obligations: Applicant/Member

Representations and Obligations: WTP-LDA

23.  WTP-LDA’s legal strategy rests entirely on the exercise of and defense of the unalienable, unconditional, constitutionally-guaranteed Rights to Petition for Redress of Grievances and Redress Before (paying) Taxes, and the specific Causes of Action and Statements of Facts developed by the We The People organization (copy attached to and made a part of this Agreement). 

24.  These causes of action and supporting facts definitively assert: 1) the People have a Right to retain and hold onto money they would otherwise have turned over to the federal government if there are material facts supporting allegations of unconstitutional behavior by those wielding governmental power (oppression) and the government refuses to respond to the People’s proper Petitions for Redress of those grievances; and 2) the federal income tax laws are without bona fide legal authority, are unenforceable against the People not subject to their jurisdiction, and are administered in a manner grossly repugnant to the People’s Constitutionally protected Rights. 

25.  WTP-LDA intends to hire only attorneys and legal assistants, who have studied, understand, agree with, and are prepared to advocate aggressively for WTP-LDA on the principles and legal positions the WTP organization has developed regarding constitutional government and the income tax.  

26.  WTP-LDA intends to build a team of patriotic attorneys with exceptional intellect, subject matter expertise (or high aptitude), integrity, courage; and a strong heart for our cause.  

27.  WTP-LDA will handle each case in a rational, intelligent and professional manner observing all court/administrative rules, professional conduct rules and proper legal procedures.

28.  In the event Member is contacted by state or federal tax authorities because Member has either ceased earnings withholding of all federal taxes from its workers’ paychecks, or ceased filing “income” tax returns or ceased paying “income” taxes, WTP-LDA, on a best efforts basis, and AT NO COST TO THE MEMBER  (except where a separate agreement has been made), will represent Member and endeavor to obtain an attorney and/or other professional representation and/or assistance at every stage of the proceedings including legal/educational consultation by letter and phone, direct representation with tax officials and court proceedings if necessary.  

29.  Member recognizes that WTP-LDA and Member are on the cutting edge of a ground-breaking process that we believe will positively affect every American. WTP-LDA intends to provide all Members with sufficient defenses and assistance to repel any and all government responses that may arise from Member’s relevant actions or non-actions.

Member understands that the taxing authorities, and the federal and state governments may not accept the legal positions presented by WTP-LDA and WTP-LDA MAKES NO GUARANTY, EXPRESS OR IMPLIED, THAT THEY WILL BE ABLE TO DEFEND MEMBER AGAINST WHAT WTP-LDA CONSIDERS TO BE A GOVERNMENT ACTING BEYOND ITS BONA FIDE CONSTITUTIONAL AND LEGAL AUTHORITY.
  

29A. Together, Member and WTP-LDA will work towards success, even while encountering the to-be-expected roadblocks along the way. Every effort, using well thought out legal strategies, executed by top notch attorneys and other professionals will be used by WTP-LDA.  

30.  WTP-LDA obviously, cannot guarantee the outcome of any legal dispute between the Member and the tax agency or government. WTP-LDA cannot, and will not, be held liable by Member for any such outcome.   

31.  WTP-LDA will not represent Members in any IRS audit to determine the accuracy of the information provided on any tax return filed by Member. 

32.  WTP-LDA intends to begin providing its services only after a sufficient number of Companies and Natural Persons have formally joined the WTP-LDA, as Members in good standing, to enable WTP-LDA to function as an economically viable association. 

33.  WTP-LDA will begin providing its legal services only after a minimum of ten thousand (10,000) Companies and/or Natural Persons have formally joined WTP-LDA, as Members in good standing, including payment of their annual membership fees. 

34.  WTP-LDA may, at its sole discretion, decide to begin providing its legal services at any time after some number LESS THAN 10,000 Companies and/or Natural Persons have formally joined WTP-LDA, as Members in good standing. 

35.  After a sufficient number of WTP-LDA applications have been received, WTP-LDA will announce the planned “WTP-LDA Service Activation Date” and notify all Applicants.  Applicants will then send their annual dues to WTP-LDA.  

35A.   Following the public announcement of the planned Service Activation date, WTP-LDA will begin collecting dues payments from all Applicants and begin to process Memberships.  Only after a sufficient number of Applicants make timely payments, will WTP-LDA announce the actual Service Activation Date.

35B. WTP-LDA will only be responsible for providing legal services to a Member following BOTH the actual Activation of the WTP-LDA services AND the formal approval of the Applicant’s Membership (which includes full payment of dues).  Members will be notified when their Membership has been approved.
 

Termination of the Association

36.  In the event an insufficient number of Companies and/or Individuals join WTP-LDA, or fail to make timely payments of their annual dues following the announcement of the planned “Service Activation Date”, WTP-LDA will be formally dissolved as a legal entity and no Services will be provided. 

37.  Following actual activation of WTP-LDA services, WTP-LDA reserves the right to terminate its operations and dissolve as a legal entity, at any time for any reason.  Following such an unanticipated circumstance, WTP-LDA will make partial refunds of Membership dues, on a weighted, pro-rata basis from Association funds after payment of all Association debts and satisfying all financial obligations owed by the Association, as well as all costs related to the termination of the Association.

42.  WTP-LDA reserves the right to seek recovery of the costs of services provided to any Member that is terminated for the reasons stated above. 

42A.  MEMBER RECOGNIZES THAT ATTORNEYS AND/OR OTHER PROFESSIONALS HIRED THROUGH WTP-LDA MAY REQUIRE ADDITIONAL, SEPARATE WRITTEN OR ORAL AGREEMENTS WITH MEMBER TO EFFECT LEGAL REPRESENTATION.

IN GENERAL, WTP-LDA WILL BEAR THE FINANCIAL COSTS OF SUCH REPRESENTATION, SUBJECT TO THE TERMS AND LIMITATIONS CITED IN THIS AGREEMENT AND ANY AGREEMENT BETWEEN SUCH ATTORNEY AND/OR PROFESSIONAL AND THE WTP-LDA.

MEMBER IS FREE TO DECLINE THE REPRESENTATION AND MAY OR MAY NOT AGREE TO SAID TERMS. 

IN THE EVENT THAT MEMBER IS NOT AGREEABLE TO THE TERMS OF ENGAGEMENT OF THE ATTORNEY AND/OR OTHER PROFESSIONALS, WTP-LDA WILL ENDEAVOR TO LOCATE ANOTHER ATTORNEY AND/OR OTHER PROFESSIONAL TO ADVOCATE ON BEHALF OF MEMBER. 

IN THE EVENT THAT MEMBER DOES NOT ENGAGE THE SERVICES OF AN ATTORNEY OR OTHER PROFESSIONALS THROUGH WTP-LDA, THEIR MEMBERSHIP MAY BE TERMINTATED AND THEIR CURRENT YEAR DUES MAY BE REFUNDED, LESS ANY EXPENSES INCURRED.  WPT-LDA WILL BE HELD LEGALLY HARMLESS UNDER SUCH CIRCUMSTANCES.
