I thought these socialists were joking when they resurrected their unbridled lust for a State income tax in Washington State. If at first you don't succeed, fail fail again, eh?
The first thought that occurred to me was their "fraud in the inducement" which never appears outright, but always remains lurking between the lines.
If you want to see what happens when a Union State imposes a State income tax ON TOP OF the Federal income "tax-tortion", take a very close look at this study which we did for a private client when our offices were in San Diego:
And, want to place your money on a bet that a similar extortion racket will surely develop here in Washington, after the State government gets in bed with the Internal Revenue Service doing business as Trust #62 now domiciled in San Juan, Puerto Rico, under color of the former Federal Alcohol Administration?
The IRS is now what was left over of "The Untouchables" after alcohol Prohibition (aka Volstead Act) was finally repealed.
They can't even use "Department of the Treasury" on any of their correspondence, or Forms, without also violating 31 U.S.C. 333 (because they have no authority to do so: we asked, and they always fell silent):
We sincerely believe the petroleum cartel secretly financed the Women's Temperance Movement, to perfect a monopoly in automotive fuels. Once that monopoly was in place, Prohibition was repealed -- leaving alcohol high and dry as the preferred fuel for cars and trucks, and leaving a Federal police force inside the several States -- to continue extorting money from the American People.
This is the very same petroleum cartel that just brought you the "Well from Hell" in the Gulf of Mexico!
These are not nice people; they are Big People who refer to us as "small people."
If Americans would only learn from their history, they would already know that the Federal income tax was also sold, back in 1913, on the false and rebuttal premise that it would be imposed ONLY on "the rich". HA HA!! HO HO!! HE HE!! Joke's STILL on Us, 97 years later!
There is much more to this story than meets the eye, and certainly a WHOLE LOT MORE than ATTORNeys* like William H. Gates Sr. will ever admit in public:
One necessary solution to the problems alleged by these rabid socialists is to inform all Washington State employees that they are legally NOT required to execute IRS Form W-4, because "State" has been specially defined in the Public Salary Tax Act so as NOT to include any of the 50 States of the Union. Incredible, isn't it?
Therefore, they are NOT "employees" as defined at IRC 3401(c) http://www4.law.cornell.edu/uscode/26/3401.html (c) because Washington is just not a "Federal State" as defined; and, they should NOT be executing that Form in the first place, all the while IRS is suborning perjury by requiring them to do so -- a felony violation of 18 U.S.C. 1622:
