JUNE 29TH CONFERENCE: LETTER TO MR. FURMAN
VIA CERTIFIED MAIL - RETURN RECEIPT
April 27, 2000
Mr. Jason Furman
RE: June Conference on Income Tax Remonstrance
Dear Mr. Furman:
On behalf of the delegates representing all fifty states of the Union, who traveled to the capital to support the delivery, on April 13, 2000, of the Income Tax Remonstrance to the leaders of all three branches of the federal government, I thank you for the time and courtesy you extended on behalf of President Clinton that afternoon to Mr. Joseph Banister and me.
We appreciate your commitment to have the staff of the National Economic Council, White House lawyers and historical people review the issues and to identify person(s) to participate in our June conference, in Washington DC, to discuss the issues and the remedies.
We have chosen June 29, 2000 as the date for the conference, which we anticipate will require a full day with a break for lunch.
We expect the conference to focus on four propositions as follows: 1) that the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, the so-called income tax amendment, was not legally ratified in 1913, indeed, that it was fraudulently declared to be ratified by a lame-duck Secretary of State, Philander Knox, just days before he left office to make way for the administration of Woodrow Wilson; 2) that regardless of the 16th Amendment issue, there is no law or regulation that requires most citizens to file and pay income taxes or to have those taxes withheld from the money they earn; 3) that one cannot sign and file a tax return without waiving one's rights under the 5th Amendment not to be a witness against oneself; and 4) that the IRS routinely ignores and denies basic due process rights of citizens in its administrative and judicial proceedings.
The arguments supporting the above propositions have been provided to President Clinton along with our letter of May 5, 1999 and in our letter of April 13, 2000. If at all possible, please let us know by May 31st what principal arguments will be presented by the Executive representing its position on the above propositions, and whether you need additional copies of the research reports which we mailed to President Clinton along with our letter of May 5, 1999.
Thank you for your consideration in this matter.
Very truly yours,
Robert L. Schulz
