Update, March 8th, 2010)
The IRS Again
challenging journey toward Truth, Justice and the
Right to enjoy Life under the protection of the
Principles of Nature protected by the Constitution
has garnered the attention of millions, the support
of thousands, and the scorn of the establishment.
Most of you know that WTP has been interacting with
the IRS for many years.
was May, 1999, when We The People Foundation served
its first Petition for Redress of Grievances, a
Remonstrance, exposing the Income Tax fraud upon
U.S. Government officials.
Through hours of public meetings at the National
Press Club, (some with full C-SPAN coverage), and
numerous full-page ads in USA Today, the New York
Times, and other national publications, WTP
trumpeted the fraud of a direct, non-apportioned
tax on the labor of American workers and the
fraudulent ratification of the 16th
Through other Petitions for Redress, WTP exposed a
barrage of ever-escalating constitutional violations
such as the unconstitutional (privately owned)
Federal Reserve, the fraud of the U.S. fiat “dollar”
and the unconstitutional wars in the Middle East,
Following a 21-day hunger-strike in the summer of
2001, which, thanks to the assistance of Congressman
Roscoe Bartlett, finally secured the written
commitment of the DOJ and IRS Commissioner to
conduct a public People’s hearing on the tax fraud,
WTP hosted the 2-day People’s “Truth in Taxation”
hearing which was webcast live – along with full
documentary evidence, in its entirety, to thousands
across the nation.
In 2004 and then again in 2007, WTP also hosted a
multi-day “Give Me Liberty” conference with agendas
featuring highly-respected national Liberty
speakers, authors and figures from the worlds of
academia and law addressing the attacks on our
challenged the courts to define the last ten words
of the First Amendment, something which had never
been done in America. The judges avoided meeting
the challenge entirely, through an abuse of
starie decisis, resulting in a judicial decision
that basically blows the Declaration of Independence
and the First Amendment out of the ball park: “The
people have a right to petition government, but
government does not have to answer; and the people
cannot withhold their resources until they do.”
conducted a high visibility silent protest in
Washington D.C., with the 2007 “V for Vendetta”
gathering just outside the White House.
response to this protest came fast and furious or
perhaps it was all planned out. The Foundation was
sued by the IRS two days later for (allegedly)
violating IRC Section 6700, by characterizing WTP’s
dissemination of its series of potent Petitions for
Redress (regarding the income tax and “withholding”
frauds) as an improper “abusive tax shelter”.
of you who know Bob Schulz may also know that he has
never taken a dime of income for his efforts all
these years; and that he will give his last pennies
to someone in need, often time above those of his
own. If you consider the meaning of “abusive tax
shelter” as defined by statute, there is NOTHING Bob
or WTP has ever done or attempted to do that fits
case built on the bizarre charge was a perfect
set-up to silence WTP and the Truth about the real
nature of the income tax laws. Indeed, it is
painful to witness the Judiciary’s Constitutional
view of America: In that civil lawsuit,
IRS v. WTP, a New York District Court
ruled against WTP without any adversarial public
hearing, without a jury, without a trial, and in
direct violation of the well-established Rules of
Civil Procedure. The Court did not permit him to
present his version of the facts nor was there any
scrutiny of the materials and their validity, which
had been disseminated.
injunction was placed on WTP to stop dissemination
of the “blue folders.” WTP complied after doing
everything they could to stop it.
Schulz was never convicted of any crime, nor has he
Since then, the IRS apparently has been sitting on
this verdict wondering how it could work toward its
larger goal of shutting WTP down. It has taken
this long for them to come back and inform WTP that
the decision of that case provides ample
justification to try and (retroactively) revoke
WTP’s 501c3 status.
Let’s see if we have this right:
For the collective and unrelenting efforts of Bob
Schulz over the past years to revive and defend the
Constitution (with no personal benefit or salary),
the IRS has now moved again to abuse the tax laws to
inflict further unjust injuries against the WTP
organization, impede its essential work, and silence
our messages of Accountability, Resistance and the
fundamental Rights of the People.
January 27, 2010, the IRS served Notice upon WTP
Foundation that it had retroactively revoked,
back to 2003, its corporate 501(c)3 “tax-exempt”
also provided notice it is preparing to execute
levies against the Foundation for (alleged) past-due
(alleged) tax deficiencies arising out of the
(alleged) administrative revocation.
The facts do not add up. The organization passed
two IRS audits with flying colors (IRS was hoping to
find something but failed to) and has followed all
compliance requirements through each year, without
any contrary response from the IRS. WTP has never
altered from its dedicated purpose as an educational
foundation under its 501(c)3 charter. The sister
organization, the WTP Congress, has likewise acted
within the definition of its 501(c)4 charter.
Just after CC2009, in early December, questions
about WTP’s status were actually raised by two
individuals from Illinois who claimed they had been
told about this change of status by the IRS before
they had even informed Bob. When Bob called the IRS
to find out if something was going on that he needed
to know, the IRS person could not answer him and
said someone higher up would have to call him back.
The information came in late January.
the defense of WTP, Bob is now going to challenge
the revocation and is preparing to file the legal
papers which will begin that process.
this conflict all about Bob and the Foundation or is
this more about you and I, about our Individual
Rights, about our Constitution, and the Rights of
those who will come after us?
is clear we either stand together now and see these
things through or we will suffer more and more
There may be some of you who decide not to
support WTP or Bob any longer when you hear this
news, though such a reaction seems hardly possible
to us anymore. We are living in a time when we are
not backing away from Truth or letting someone else
handle the tough stuff. This is our test as much as
it is his.
Government, and the main-stream media, have tried to
make Bob and the organization look controversial.
They have attempted to marginalize our work and
clarion call for Constitutional Order. Bob and WTP
are often help high by the establishment as the
“anti-government radical tax protestors.” We are now
standing up to that definition loudly and clearly.
you know better than all, WTP has been anchored in
the CONSTITUTION. If that is “anti-government” what
does that tell you?
has never been intimidated by those who have tried
to stop him from standing against those who would
usurp the authority of the Constitution. WTP has
acted within the system - professionally,
rationally, intelligently, and always peacefully.
has never given up and is not about to begin to do
Finally, Bob has NEVER told anyone not to pay their
taxes. He has done his research, looked at the
evidence, asked the questions and demanded that
government examine the issues -- the evidence
surrounding the ratification of the 16th
Amendment, the legal meaning of the word “income,”
the changes in the tax code, the effect of employer
withholding -- all things we should all be doing
en masse now. Perhaps the coming weeks will
attract additional interest in our research and
repeated efforts to secure Redress as we move toward
Over years, Bob and many others in America have paid
a stiff price for exercising their free Speech and
Petitioning our servant government for answers to
our compelling questions and demanding that these
issues be publicly examined and Redress secured. The
Government’s failure to do so, is in fact, an act of
tyranny that the People must not tolerate.
Before this week is up, WTP’s response to the IRS’s
revocation will be filed in District Court in
Washington, D.C. We will keep you posted every step
of the way. For those reading this update who are
actively involved in any of WTP’s projects, please
carry on and see them through. If you are not yet
involved, your support is needed and most welcomed.
