This is the first paragraph of the 1913 Income Tax Statutes at large 38 Stat 166.

This is the only paragraph consisting of one sentence that the government says pertains to you. It was run through a Grammatik program. It stated it was one sentence of 43 words. The readability is the grade level required to understand what you are reading. The sentence complexity is the score that is required to comprehend what you are reading with a score of 100 being so complex that no one can understand it.

The Statute in question is then compared to Hemingway books, the Gettysburg Address, and the 1040EZ Form instructions.

The maxim of law states that law should be written at the level of the general populace so it can be understood. Present day readability, according to this program, which incidentally was designed by the government and used extensively by the IRS and the Army, is a 6 to 10 year grade level. Present day newspapers are printed at a 5 to 7 grade level so as to not lose readers. This I was told by various newspapers and by the Newspaper Guild in Washington , D.C. . The reason given is that if they raised the level any higher they would loose readers and the advertisers would not support their papers. I let you judge for yourselves why there is so much confusion about tax law. Remember, this is all that exists in the entire Income Tax Law of 1913. That's right, one paragraph consisting of one sentence. All the rest of the 37 pages pertain to income tax of corporations. I will quote the paragraph here and then give you the statistics below it from Grammatik.

That there shall be levied, assessed, collected and paid annually upon the entire net income arising or accruing from all sources in the preceding calendar year to every citizen of the United States , whether residing at home or abroad, and to every person residing in the United States , though not a citizen thereof , a tax of 1 per centum per annum upon such income ,

EXCEPT as herein after provided; and a like tax shall be assessed, levied, collected, and paid annually upon the entire net income from all property owned and of every business, trade or profession carried on in the United States by persons residing elsewhere."

No wonder it takes over 9000 pages of codified garbage to understand what can not be fathomed by the most astute man, let alone the average man. They can't explain, ever, such an abomination to begin with. They can take another 9000 pages and still be as screwed up as ever. But breaking each word down as I have done, it can be deciphered

.When it does, it is very clear as to what they did. This one sentence fits right into the 1862 Income Tax Statute for “Normal Taxes.” These “Normal Taxes pertained ONLY to government (federal) employees and is piggybacked onto the Corporation Tax Act of 1909 to make a package deal and defrauded every American that was not a federal employee (United States citizen/resident domiciled “at home” (Washington, D.C.) To believe they were taxable. Just pick any section from page 167 to 203 of the 1913 corporation income tax, labeled just Income tax, and you can read into it your own situation if you did not know it pertained ONLY to corporations. However, knowing it pertains strictly to corporations, you will soon see the fraud that made you believe you were a taxpayer.

How many of you have really pulled the Statutes at Large, 38 Stat 166, which is the real law and not the codified law? I'll bet maybe 20 people have in the whole country. They leave a lot out in the codes, that is why they are called codes, to defraud you of just about anything they want. That is why you should never argue prima facie law (code statute i.e. 18, 26, 28, 42 USC) because they leave out what they don't want you to see.

Have fun reading it. I think its about time you all started reading the Statutes at Large rather than reading 26 USC which has been so twisted to make you think you are a taxpayer that it is pathetic.
