Ways to help publicize HowYouBecomeLiable.com
The truth about how one becomes liable for the income tax has been buried so long and
so many false ideas have been spread that it is difficult to get most people to even consider
thinking about it. Stimulating curiosity, rather than saying
"You have to read this!" may have more success in getting minds to open.
So here are some things you can do if you want to help spread the truth. Even a small
effort, sustained over time, can have an effect. And you never know, you might be the one
to bring the truth to the attention of someone who can reach thousands or millions of people.
Keep that goal in mind!
Add a signature to your email
You see them all the time--those little messages at the end of emails put there by an email
provider such as Yahoo, or by the email author themselves. In many cases you to can add a
"signature" to the end of your emails. Here is one you could use:
Do you know EXACTLY how you become liable for the income tax?
Not one person in a thousand does, yet many who do also know

ACTUALLY SAYS at: HowYouBecomeLiable.com
You may even be able to make "HowYouBecomeLiable.com" into an active link so all they have
to do is click on it.
Write to someone at a high profile web site
Pete Hendrickson has tried mightily to open some eyes at LewRockwell.com without success.
But that was before HowYouBecomeLiable.com was created! Write any of their writers and ask
them if they have taken the quiz.
And of course there are many other sites and writers you can contact. All you have to do is
write them and ask if they have taken the quiz at HowYouBecomeLiable.com. The second or third
time they get such an email, they may say to themselves, "Well, I better take the quiz
so I can just say 'yes'"!
Write to someone who writes a newspaper column
As always, try to stimulate their curiosity. Ask them if they know exactly what event makes
them liable for the income tax. Tell them that it is NOT that they earned money, the law is
clear that it is something else. Ask them to take the quiz at HowYouBecomeLiable.com. That's it!
Write a letter to the editor
Most newspapers (the ones that haven't folded) accept letters to the editor, submitted by email
or on their website.
Tax season is an especially good time, but occasionally a letter will appear in which a writer
claims that we have the income tax because of the 16th Amendment. Fire off a reply and tell
them why this isn't true. Here's an example:
16th Amendment not required for tax
Joe Blow ("Time to repeal the 16th Amendment", Letters, February 15) suggested that the
personal income tax was made possible by the 16th Amendment. This is simply not true; the
first income tax (on the exercise of federal privilege) was imposed in 1862 and upheld by
the Supreme Court several times. When the Congress added additional subjects to the tax in
1894 the Supreme Court invalidated the section on dividends and other property because taxes
on property (direct taxes) must be apportioned among the states. The Court did not invalidate
all income taxes. The 16th Amendment severed the link between the source (property) and the
subject of the tax (federal privilege), allowing dividends to be taxed, but, as the Court said
in Peck v. Lowe (1918), it "does not extend the taxing power to new or excepted subjects."
As much as the government wants you to believe it, the 16th Amendment did not enable the
income tax, the power was already there. The source of most people's liability is the
declaration on a W-2 or 1099, wrongly, that their earnings derive from federal privilege.
