If You Are The Defendant
by Otto Skinner

If You Are the Defendant was originally written in 1989 and updated in 1996, with emphasis on defending one's self against alleged violations of the revenue laws.

Information from the backcover

"The income tax is, therefore, not a tax on income as such. It is an excise tax with respect to certain activities and privileges which is measured by reference to the income which they produce. The income is not the subject of the tax: it is the basis for determining the amount of tax."
House Congressional Record" 3-23-43, page 2580

When asked what is the subject of the "income" tax, most people, including patriots, will guess that the income is the subject of the tax. This wrong assumption is truly the root of the problems for those who are battling this "monster" caller the "income" tax.

Only individuals who are involved in those "certain activities and privileges" can be subject to the so-called "income" tax.

If You Are The Defendant provides an indepth, yet very clear explanation as to why there can be no intelligent discussion, and no adequate defense, until all concerned clearly understand that today's so-called "income" tax is an indirect excise tax.

In addition to clearing up the confusion between direct and indirect taxes, If You Are the Defendant discusses many of the flawed and frivolous arguments which have failed so many patriots in the past, and provides easy to understand explanations as to why these arguments failed.
