The Tax Fraud Prevention Manual builds upon the research and findings of the Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302 book to help you deal administratively with the government and legal profession in defending your rights. It shows exactly how tax fraud on the part of the government, the legal profession, and private industry are perpetrated and gives you sources of legal evidence which will help you both prove it and oppose it administratively. The book accomplishes its goal by applying the truths found in both the law itself and the  Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302 book in a practical and systematic way to help you prevent violations of law and procedure and constitutional rights. This book contains detailed information intended to:

  1. Show you how to ensure that everyone, including you, fully complies with all laws that apply to "nontaxpayers", while also maximizing your sovereignty and liberty.

  2. Provides evidence useful in defending your constitutional and legal rights by challenging the frequently PDF false presumptions of government, legal profession, financial institutions, and private employers when they illegally assert authority or perform unlawful tax collection or PDF withholding actions.

  3. Show you how to develop and maintain a good administrative record that will help immunize you from prosecution by malicious public servants.

  4. Familiarize you with federal and state tax collection procedure.

  5. Give you a systematic and organized approach for responding to government tax collection notices and administrative actions.

  6. Teach you the basics of tax litigation.

  1. Explain the history of the IRS.  You can't win unless you understand your enemy.  Exhaustive details of our political and legal history are described here.

  2. Provide an attractive book that is useful both as a learning tool and a well-organized and thoroughly indexed reference tool.

  3. Accelerate your study and learning about freedom, sovereignty, and taxes by providing copious internet hyperlinks that take you straight to the sources of government information upon which its conclusions are based so that you can quickly see the supporting evidence for yourself and form your own independent conclusions.

This book:

  1. Is only for use by those who are in deed and in fact a "nontaxpayer", and have made that decision independently based on your reading of the Great IRS Hoax, Form #11.302 book chapters 3 through 5 and our Member Agreement.

  2. Is not intended to help you minimize, reduce, or eliminate a lawfully assessed tax liability.  Instead, it shows how to preserve and defend your status as a nontaxpayer by preventing others from violating the law in their interactions with you.

  3. Is not a book about how to litigate against the government or the IRS, but mainly about how to deal with them administratively.  This subject is covered in the following:
