Dear Mr. Mitchell:

   This is in response to your Freedom of Information
request dated August 31, 1996, requesting certified copies
of all liability statutes presently enacted in the Internal
Revenue Code.

   One of the FOIA's requirements is that requesters
sufficiently identify the records solicited in order to
locate them.  To the extent you are seeking records which
establish the authority of the Internal Revenue Service to
assess, enforce and collect taxes, please be advised of the
following.  The Sixteenth Amendment to the Constitution 
authorized Congress to impose an income tax.  Congress did
so in the Internal Revenue Code, which may be found in Title
26 of the United States Code.  The Internal Revenue Code is
administered by the Internal Revenue Service and may be 
responsive to portions of your request.  The Code is 
available at many bookstores and public libraries throughout
the country.

   In addition, copies of the Federal Register which
contain Federal regulations, and copies of the Congressional
Record which contain Federal laws may be obtained from the
Superintendent of Documents, U.S. Government Printing
Office, Washington, D.C. 20402.

   Though the Freedom of Information Act is designed to
give the public the greatest possible access to existing
government records, it does not require us to do research or
answer questions in response to a request.  It is suggested
that you perform the legal research needed to reasonably
identify the documents you need to address your concerns.
Once you have made your determinations, we will be happy to
search our files to locate these documents, if they exist,
and respond accordingly.

                                 /s/ Carroll Field for
                                 Mark L. Zolton
                                 Tax Law Specialist
                                 Freedom of Information

Paul Mitchell comments:

I didn't find any mention of a single liability 
statute in the above, after reading it three times.  

Enough is enough!
