>The text of the 5th Cir. Court opinion in my case is accessible on the
>web at http://www.ca5.uscourts.gov:8081/ISYSquery/IRL829A.tmp/1/doc
>under case No. 91-2973.  I got this thriugh "Excite" search engine by

>http://www.ca5.uscourts.gov:8081/ISYSquery/IRL829A.tmp/1/doc  I will
>paste from the web the court's parenthetical comment that you expressed
>interest in and it reads as follows:
>The Bucks contend that requiring them to sign the jurat or be subjected
>to a penalty for the failure to do so infringes on their First Amendment
>right to believe that wages are not income, as their signatures on the
>Form 1040 would indicate otherwise. This argument is specious.
>Noncompliance with the tax laws is not protected by the First Amendment.
>Mosher, 775 F.2d at 1295; see also United States v. Lee, 455 U.S. 252,
>260, 102 S.Ct. 1051, 1056, 71 L.Ed.2d 127 (1982) (the maintenance of a
>functional federal tax system is a sufficiently important governmental
>interest to justify incidental regulation of First Amendment rights).
>Of course, my refusal to sign a governmentally prescribed document about
>income that I didn't believe was true was in complete compliance with
>all laws that prohibit lying or committing perjury.  In other words, how
>can I lawfully self-assess income taxes under penalties of perjury when
>I don't believe I owe any?!!!!!!  The answer is I can't, and I haven't
>since 1988; the IRS and the courts simply want to to swear to something
>we don't believe.
>An IRS Problem resolution officer once phoned me and asked why I
>couldn't sign the jurat.  When I told him I couldn't affirm under oath
>something I don't believe, he replied:  "If you'll sign it anyway we
>won't prosecute you for perjury."  It's all in my book. They are a
>dishonest bunch of people and all they want is your money and and will
>resort to hook or crook to get it!  I have absolutely no use for anyone
>who works for the IRS nor in thhe judiciary branch of gov't.
