The last couple months there have been a lot of posts concerning the IRS ruling that bitcoins are to be treated as property and that it was required to pay a capital gains tax on the sale of bitcoins. Some people even posted that "bitcoin is doomed" because of the ruling.

To prove just how silly it is for people to worry about this, I created this thread to call out the IRS to prove what I owe in capital gains due to bitcoin sales.

So if there are any IRS employees trolling this thread, you're welcome to pour over the blockchain and tell me what I owe you.  Wink

Did you report your gains and say the tax rate you need to pay is zero, or did you "forget" to report the gain?

OP needs to learn, holding bitcoin is tax rate of ZERO. but holding fiat in his personal account after selling the bitcoin. he needs to pay tax on that fiat gain.

but i do agree people are silly when it comes to saying "bitcoin is doomed" and here is why

1. people will find other ways to not need FIAT, thus not needing to claim FIAT gains
2. the IRS wont care about useless / worthless items. IRS have categorized bitcoin, thus it has proven bitcoin to be a valid store of wealth.

Right, Cause they don't got bigger fish to fry.

IRS is a bloated lazy organization(like most if not all U.S. government agencies.)
They expect you to do all their work, then they have machines process it all.

They will likely only pursue the wealthiest of known bitcoin investors.
They likely only declared bitcoin taxable so they can get a cut of the silkroad auction.

You probably won't get caught as long as you don't have any large cash transactions related to BTC into or out of your bank account. If you do get audited and have large Bitcoin related transactions in your bank records, you will have to explain them, which means you're fucked.

Well... Ross Ullbricht also used the TOR browser and he thought that the FBI would never track him down. Guess what. He was wrong. So don't be overconfident and no need to brag about this.

You don't have a bank account.  That means that you probably don't have a house, or a credit card, direct deposit, or children, or any of the other things that are part of normal life.  You are basically a monk of a pseudo-religion.  Your experience is so far from our own that any advice that you might have is likely to be useless or even dangerous to us.

Monks cannot provide a good example to the rest of us, because if we all lived like monks there would be no families and thus no future.  All purely monastic societies die sooner or later.

lol... that was classic. Strictly IMO, we are forced to depend upon the bankers, at least until Bitcoin gets more popular. Boycotting banks now will do no good for us, other than causing inconveniences.

Not sure what you mean by "It's always been taxable". If you mean the IRS will always want to steal, then I'd agree. If you mean that they were always owed, then you're wrong. If you mean they've always been able to collect, then this thread proves that wrong.

No, I'm not. Had you actually talked with a tax professional prior to the IRS guidance (which, given the nature of this thread, you hadn't), you would have known that taxes were always owed on realized gains from bitcoin. Again, it was just unclear whether bitcoins were either currency or property.

Of course, when you take a profit in fiat you owe taxes.
Any other approach is dangerously illegal.

OP, if IRS decides to audit your fiat transaction history, then you are going to give some answers. You will be subpoenaed and so will the forum histories, your bank account services, etc.

Tax evasion is a serious crime. Bitcoin sales to fiat is taxable. One serious audit and your ass is goin to the big house for few years at least. Not to mention now you left a digital confession, then you are truly digging your own grave. The 'beyond shadow of doubt' isn't as foolproof as you think it is once you are actually in the courtrooom.

Too late for regrets now. Just pray you don't get audited. It's remarkably easy to track someone's irregularities if they look. Whether you are or aren't a big enough fish is irrelevant if they decide to audit you - you are leaving it all up to chance and have no control over it.

May be he is dealing with 100% cash, through localbitcoins. But remember the recent court case against two Bitcoiners who used cash for Bitcoin deals in Florida (Pascal Reid and Michell Espinoza).

well i'm glad i paid the IRS.....on 16k profit on miing with equip purchases..home office new business credit (immediate 50% off equip startup costs..hey i'm a farmer) etc etc
that tax lady almost got all of the 4k i should have spent ...i only  spent 550 extra bucks..

as the tax lady said i be a 'farmer' the gov't can't say that they will take 25% of gross income from me being a miner...and only way to pay that is to "mine" and
not have me be able to take off all this equip/home office/etc etc on my taxes

ie they can't have both ways if that is the only way i can make the 'gross income' they are taxing at 25%....so as a business
if next year it all tanks i can write it all off not just the 3k personal capital gains taxes per year....i expected but all of it

on 16k i paid 550 bucks back from the 2200 on my prev refund (amended my taxes)

so 1 yr and 1 day from Oct when i started mining i can cash out what i wish with only the 20% capital gains to worry about and be IRS friendly

and yes i assume the IRS rules will last till this DEC 2014 due to the Nov elections nothing will get passed (at best) till dec 2014 at the best imho

main point of being legal...my current bank (which screwed up my 2 wire xfers to knc so badly it took a month) just sent me a letter that they find it
suspicious that i did so many wire xfers (i did not it was the bank trying to fix it) ...if the bank i do stuff with can't even tell another branch of the bank
that they are the ones initiating wire xfers over 10k well....due to duplicate efforts to get them thru...well....any wire xfer you have done will
probably result in the same form letter i got asking 'wtf did you wire xfer $$$ to sseden and then anther from sweden come from ..ie prove you are not
a drug dealer kinda paper trail process ....whats a guy going to do....

so people that did an over 10k international wire xfer for your purchase in Sweden by knc ..expect a letter from your bank asking what it was used for
and if you got the 10k back from sweden expect another letter and if you cashed the $$$ out to move to another bank (in my case)
expect a 3rd letter ..fun fun...but i got to assume if they don't know enough to even look at my account on their bank and see that i paid and refunded on my statements..then I'm
fairly sure they have already 'posted" this off to the powers that be .....in case i'm a drug lord

so anyway i expect a lot of folk who did not pay taxes on their bitcoin this year are gonna be shocked when contacted by bank and then IRS
on what this 10k to sweden went for (also the 10k back if refunded i got both questions  asked of me) ie explain your paper trail on bitcoin
equip purchases and why you  reported no profit on such to the IRS..

i knew being paranoid would save my butt someday gonna be real interesting but mysefl all is legal as crap according to cpa lady...

me....i'm legal ....golden...new business.....and they can't touch me...went thru my cpa all legal...but not a lot of incentive to mine BTC this year at equip options/prices

I'd be freaking now if i would have gotten these form letters from the bank if I'd NOT paid my taxes ...I'd have been so scewed is likely

anyway maybe i just have bad luck but them 10k wire xfers hither and yon ..always bugged me at over 10k each or same bell goes off for refund imho

seems being chicken and doing btc 'legit' just saved me a lot of grief

results may vary this is just me and a lot of the perks was new home business writeoffs and persks

seems being chicken and doing btc 'legit' just saved me a lot of grief

results may vary this is just me and a lot of the perks was new home business writeoffs and persks

Do you ever wonder why so many bums end up begging on the street corner?
Really low "income" is one way to legally avoid taxes, but a low-life is not a fun life.
I have never done street begging, but I have thought about it, years ago.

The last couple months there have been a lot of posts concerning the IRS ruling that bitcoins are to be treated as property and that it was required to pay a capital gains tax on the sale of bitcoins. Some people even posted that "bitcoin is doomed" because of the ruling.

To prove just how silly it is for people to worry about this, I created this thread to call out the IRS to prove what I owe in capital gains due to bitcoin sales.

So if there are any IRS employees trolling this thread, you're welcome to pour over the blockchain and tell me what I owe you.  Wink



Maybe OP lives somewhere the USA IRS doesn't have jurisdiction. Seems to me that quite a few countries are ignoring Bitcoin. Thus, profits are not taxable. These countries will likely do best in the new world (post internet) economy.

is it really smart poking the buffalo with a stick?
i hope you are at least posting this behind TOR and if not that the tax man won't subpoena the forum to disclose your ip to make an example.

Even if they are able to identify him, how will they prove he owns how many Bitcoins?

That's not how audits work, the OP is just hilariously naive. The burden is on you to produce your records and prove you paid your taxes and accounted for all your income, not them. They don't need to prove you own x bitcoins, just that there are discrepancies you can't account for. That's tax evasion, period. Being able to prove how much you owe is just a bonus. They might not be able to ding you for the full amount you actually owe if they can't find it, but that isn't going to be much consolation when you're sitting in your cell and Bubba decides you got a purty mouth. IRS isn't as dumb as some you seem to think, and I have no doubt they'll be looking to make examples of some folks. Won't be me, I'm straight and legal.

Good God, how brainwashed are the American people?

Gas taxes pay for roads.

Property taxes pay for schools.

ANY public good you receive is paid for by taxes OTHER then the income tax.

100% of the income tax goes to pay interest on the debt (in other words, back into the Banksters pockets).

This was all done by design.  They turned you all into mind numb slaves.  And with the ignorance Elwar is displaying here you can understand how they got away with it.

You want to be a good American?  Keep your wealth in your community where it truly does benefit your fellow Americans.  And go to whatever means are necessary to keep it out of the hands of the Banksters.

Just as an aside, here is a story from the UK about how the authorities treat "unexplained" income here.

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-england-hereford-worcester-26977356

As a dedicated tax resister (10 years as a high earner without paying income tax) in the UK, it's an area I know fairly well. It's only a matter of time before they step up their game against me. Bitcoins are the best way to protect assets from the state.

It's a point of principle for me. I will not fund the state where I can avoid it.

Taxes pay for illegal wars. Taxes pay for police brutality. Taxes pay for unprecedented spying on innocent Americans.

The US, like all other advanced industrial economies, is a tax farm. It's citizens are obedient tax cows, being milked.

Elwar you are dead wrong!  Roads existed BEFORE the income tax.  Not 1 red cent of the income tax goes toward any public good.  The Government's own Grace commission proved this!

The ignorance you're displaying now only further make the case for how the Federal Reserve & the Banksters have been able to get away with such a fraud for so long.

1. people will find other ways to not need FIAT, thus not needing to claim FIAT gains
Isn't spending bitcoins a tax event, meaning you must account for the fiat value of any gains regardless (i.e. fiat value of the goods or services you purchase minus fiat value of the bitcoins when you acquired them)?  The tax ruling was not just about converting BTC to fiat.

good point....if you are not throwing around 10k orders to knc in sweden...and your bank messes up 3x for a redo...kinda rings some bells in IRS land....

if it can't work as a 'legit' pt business (bitcoin) there are 'other' less hazardous things i can work at for fiat that can't be traced

gold/silver.....make an ebay store (IRS an't chasing them yet) etc..just don't need the hassle....and with the stupid wire xfers
to get the miners in the first place...well ...good thing i paid my taxes to IRS this year ..thats for sure....

but yeah it is up to usa citizen to report..'self-reporting" is the law in this country..ie you get in more trouble by NOT attempting to tell the IRS your taxes (or avoiding) then just paying your share imho

by the by both President Ronald Reagan and Obama would like to just HAVE the IRS figure out your taxes......was done that way 1 yr in calififornia 90% said they would do it that way...if you have the means to tell if i cheat you have the means to do the taxes....they do your taxes..you have options to do your own or sign off on what they say you own...it is shot down in congress each year....billions are made by CPA's and others on Tax Returns....but each year a new wrinkle in the tax code pops up in your favor and the IRS uses the tweak...suddenly they are your hero.....(weird concept..but then again we sent men to the moon with the computing power of my digital watch so go figure...)

but yeah....90% of all IRS forms now are done electronically i guess in this country it is doable according to the studies.....but a lot like bitcoin....banks don't like bitcoin..tax accountants sure don't like the above idea..have the income of accountants would go poof imho

You guys are ridiculous.

The IRS doesn't care how many bitcoins you have. They don't care about your frickin' blockchain!!!!! It's just like they don't care how many beanie babies you have stored in your garage! You can have 1,000,000 bitcoins in your wallet and the IRS won't care. You don't owe them a dime for that.

They will only see transactions going in and out of your bank accounts. If there is high activity or high dollar amounts, the IRS will question it. Or if they see big purchases you've made, the IRS will question it. That's it!

If you made $10 income from mining, it's just like having a lemonade stand and making $10. The IRS doesn't give a crap about it.

If you're able to keep everything you do in bitcoins and cash without going through any bank accounts or leaving any paper trails - you'll most likely fly under the radar to the IRS. But if you pay cash for anything large, like a car, it will be reported by the car dealer, then the IRS will look into everything you do. So, you CAN fly under the radar for most things, but live a real life, and you'll find out you can't. You can't get a loan unless you have a credit record, which means you need a bank account, etc. etc.

Some people just don't want the hassle. They'd rather pay their taxes than worry that they'll receive a letter from good ol' IRS. Not all of us are ready to save the world, you know.

I paid my taxes, I even went back and amended my 2011 and 2012 returns for the coins I mined back then. It's not a political statement, it's a 'I don't want to go to jail' when I sell statement. I choose to live here, I'm going to abide by the current laws. Doesn't mean I necessarily agree with all of them, especially the mining tax, but whatever. I hope your decision works out for you, I really do.

how would they know if you kept your money earned in Fiat after trading from bitcoins? Do they have access to the trading accounts?

Not directly, but when that $100K hits your bank account, your bank will definitely let the IRS know about it. If you were then audited, you need to have a provable explanation on where that money came from. With the IRS they don't have to prove you guilty, you have to prove you're innocent.

This post serves as an important reminder that even in a community like ours, there are still a great many obedient tax cows.
Some people just don't want the hassle. They'd rather pay their taxes than worry that they'll receive a letter from good ol' IRS. Not all of us are ready to save the world, you know.
Ok, so you guys don't pay taxes, because you want to save the world, not because you want to keep the money?
That's really nice of you ...

It's a lot easier to pay taxes now on the mined bitcoins from previous years when the bitcoins weren't worth much. It's only a few hundred dollars. Then, in the future, when cashing out the btc, I won't have to worry about questions like 'where did I get the btc' 'why didn't you report it'. etc. etc. I might never be audited or asked, but to me, it's so little that it makes me feel better. Like buying insurance for my laptop. I don't need to, but it makes me feel better.

A few hundred dollars is 'nothing' in the scheme of things. It all depends what a few hundred is worth to you. To me, it's less than 0.25% of my income, so I don't mind to feel safe. It's not worth it to risk a quarter of a percent on much larger hassles to fight the IRS or pay penalties down the road.

what a fool leave sleeping dogs alone
The dogs are not asleep. The dogs of government are rabid, and they have been devouring innocent people for a hundred years. It's time to put them down.

Anyone who is worried about the tax implications of holding cryptocurrency, don't be. Cryptocurrency is the END of fiat, capiche?

There is no going back. Nation-state scrip is a dead thing walking. The IRS is a dead thing walking. The US dollar is most CERTAINLY a dead thing walking.

Even capitalism itself is rapidly becoming a dead thing walking.

I think I can see where the divide is coming from. Older people with 'real' jobs who are making $50,000+ see no problems paying a few hundred in taxes. Younger people who don't make much see a few hundred as a 'lot' and want to avoid the taxes.

Or they've never paid taxes before, and don't understand why someone is trying to 'steal' their money. I felt the same way when I was younger. I only made $2.35 an hour. My paycheck was about $100 a week, and I had about $15 in taxes taken out of my paycheck each week. It seemed way beyond stealing to me. Then as I grew older, I learned how taxes worked, how the tax code worked, and although I still hate it, I understand more.

The IRS won't take even $1 out of an income of $2400.

If you mean that they were always owed, then you're wrong.
No, I'm not. Had you actually talked with a tax professional prior to the IRS guidance (which, given the nature of this thread, you hadn't), you would have known that taxes were always owed on realized gains from bitcoin. Again, it was just unclear whether bitcoins were either currency or property.

Again, I don't owe them anything. I EARN my money by adding value to the world. That value is legitimate by the fact that someone paid me VOLUNTARILY for my services. Any money I EARN is mine to do with as I wish, as by being its creator I have the authority over it.

Calling someone a "tax professional" and that person saying I owe doesn't make it so. Taxes are merely extortion by definition.

Grow up, Maged. You're a sheep, and a coward, and an accessory to extortion.

The last couple months there have been a lot of posts concerning the IRS ruling that bitcoins are to be treated as property and that it was required to pay a capital gains tax on the sale of bitcoins. Some people even posted that "bitcoin is doomed" because of the ruling.

To prove just how silly it is for people to worry about this, I created this thread to call out the IRS to prove what I owe in capital gains due to bitcoin sales.

So if there are any IRS employees trolling this thread, you're welcome to pour over the blockchain and tell me what I owe you.  Wink



They'll get your money if you sold BTC for Fiat they could care less about your blockchain. Your post would suggest you reported it but claim to owe no capital gains until proven. Your problem is they already have where you under a rock when they declared it property?

I never thought my life could be. Anything but catastrophe. But suddenly I begin to see. A "BIT" of good luck for me. Cause I've got a golden ticket!

Grow up, Maged. You're a sheep, and a coward, and an accessory to extortion.

This is complete nonsense. I just want to give you an example. Part of the taxes which should be applied to your income is the social security tax, which is used to pay for current and future social security retirement benefits, benefits for widows and widowers, and disability benefits. What if nobody pays these taxes?

If you don't want to contribute to society, just go live on the Moon. if you are in the US and you benefit (or you may benefit in the future) of any kind of social service, then you should pay taxes. Otherwise, you seem like a grownup kid who lives in his parents' house and refuses to give a share of the rent because any money you earn is yours to do with as you wish.

I contribute to society every day by working in the private sector. That's why people pay me VOLUNTARILY for what I do - they value my services more than what they are paying me - so it is a net gain for them to do business with me.

By "social services", what you really mean are "services paid for with extorted funds".

If I hold a gun to your head, and told you to pay me and I'll build you a website, would that be right of me even if I actually did build you a website? Of course not. Calling a gang that does the same thing "government" doesn't change the morality.

I will use physical force to extract a percentage of your income from you.

I will use this money to fund wars, I will use this money to surveil you, I will use this money to fund police brutality.

I will also use some of this money to keep the tax cows content.

I am the state.


While the state maintains a monopoly on deciding how much of our money to steal and what to do with it, it deliberately prevents alternative solutions.

Guys, you should grow up. If you don't like this system, go live somewhere else.

If one day, I hope it will not happen, you will be disabled and you'll need disability benefits, you will remember this discussion and you will thank people paying taxes. If tomorrow you will loose your job, I hope it will not happen, you will thank people paying taxes for the check that government will give you to help you transit to a new job.

So how are they supposed to build and maintain roads, garbage collection, sewage and water treatment, schools, police, national defense, etc etc etc? What do you propose, going around asking everyone nicely to please contribute what they think is fair and then praying that it covers the bills?

I'm not saying that the current system is ideal, but without FORCING people to pay to support these things, nobody would pay nearly enough to even maintain the barest essentials as listed above.

When anarchists try to explain their philosophy to statists, this is about the most common response.

If I use violence to extract money and to maintain a monopoly on the building of roads, then defenders of that regime can say "if the state didn't steal your money, we wouldn't have roads".

If I ensure people are defenceless, then defenders of the regime can say "if the state didn't steal your money, who would pay the police to protect you?"

The answer's aren't rocket science, but without reimagining society, most statists struggle to get their head around it. Most anarchists aren't simply saying stop paying taxes and leave everything as is. They are saying "what would happen if we lived in a world where violent coercion didn't exist?" "What would happen if instead of extorting money on threat of violence, we let individuals to work together to form communities, and let communities of communities work together?"

Society as it exists today is a symptom of the state.

i hope you are at least posting this behind TOR and if not that the tax man won't subpoena the forum to disclose your ip to make an example.

Well... Ross Ulbricht also used the TOR browser and he thought that the FBI would never track him down. Guess what. He was wrong. So don't be overconfident and no need to brag about this.

Ross Ullbricht used his real name on a google account....  It wasn't a flaw in TOR....

"What would happen if instead of extorting money on threat of violence, we let individuals to work together to form communities, and let communities of communities work together?"


That's how it works now. Communities decide what things they need by voting for sewers, road, libraries, schools, etc. Community members pay for these through taxes. And if they don't pay, they lose their homes / go to jail.

How do you expect your 'communities working together' to work when people there don't contribute their fair share? Just let them get away with it? Your community will crumble really fast.

As a kid, riding your bike around the neighborhood, it seems that Mr. Smith can fix the roads, Mr. Jones can fix the sewers, Mary can teach the children, Jennifer can run the library, etc. etc. All working together in harmony. This is not capitalism - this is communism. I'm not for that. Some jobs are harder than others, thus people get compensated differently, thus people's commitment to the community is different, thus taxing a percentage of your earnings is a way to solve this.

The answer's aren't rocket science, but without reimagining society, most statists struggle to get their head around it. Most anarchists aren't simply saying stop paying taxes and leave everything as is. They are saying "what would happen if we lived in a world where violent coercion didn't exist?" "What would happen if instead of extorting money on threat of violence, we let individuals to work together to form communities, and let communities of communities work together?"


So what would happen? What are the answers?

That's how it works now. Communities decide what things they need by voting for sewers, road, libraries, schools, etc. Community members pay for these through taxes. And if they don't pay, they lose their homes / go to jail.

So in other words, communities can voluntarily decide what to do, within strictly defined limits, and if you don't agree with it, we will use violence against you to ensure conformity.

How do you expect your 'communities working together' to work when people there don't contribute their fair share? Just let them get away with it? Your community will crumble really fast."

Do you need to be goverened? Do you need to be told what to do? Do you sit idle unless your master's lash is at your back?

You're still viewing anarchistic societies through a statist prism.

I don't know the answers. But I do know the right questions, which puts me a step in front of most people.

What I do know is what happens when we have incredibly powerful entities maintaining their grip on power through violent coercion so they can farm their "citizens" for profit. And it's pretty terrible.

Tax dodgers beware: IRS could be watching your social media
The IRS is said to be data mining Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and other sites for info that could come handy in audits.

acebook, Instagram, and Twitter have all become places where people post intimate details about their lives: vacation photos, work successes, buying a new house, car, or other cool stuff.

However, this information is also up for grabs by the Internal Revenue Service.

The taxman is reportedly using data from social media on people who file fishy-seeming taxes or don't file at all, according to Marketplace. The IRS loses roughly $300 billion per year to tax evasion; and in times of budget cuts, with a smaller staff, the agency has allegedly turned to both data mining and data crunching.

In its quest to find and audit tax dodgers, the IRS is said to use online activity trackers to sift through the mass amounts of data available on the Internet, according to Marketplace. This data is then added to the information the agency already has on people, such as Social Security numbers, health records, banking statements, and property.

Guys, you should grow up. If you don't like this system, go live somewhere else.

If one day, I hope it will not happen, you will be disabled and you'll need disability benefits, you will remember this discussion and you will thank people paying taxes. If tomorrow you will loose your job, I hope it will not happen, you will thank people paying taxes for the check that government will give you to help you transit to a new job.

LOL

There are people who get it, and people who don't.

Look at the federal budget for last year.  What money went where?
Look at your state budget for last year.  What money went where?
Look at your county budget for last year.  What money went where?
Look at your city/municipal budget for last year.  What money went where?

Now,

Look at your paychecks last month.  Add them up.  How much did you spend that month in federal taxes?  How much did you spend that month in state taxes?
Look at your property tax bills last year.  Add them up.  Divide by 12.  How much did you spend for property taxes per month?
Look at your city/municipal (if applicable) tax bills last year.  Add them up.  Divide by 12.  How much did you spend for city/municipal taxes per month?
Figure out how much gas you bought last month, and if you can, how much of that was taxed?
Look at everything you bought last month and add up the sales tax.
Cell phone?  Electricity? Land line?  ISP?  look at last month's bills.  Add up the taxes and government "fees".
Did you buy a house?  How much did you pay in taxes at closing?  Refinance?  Same question.  Sell a house?  Cha-ching!
Park at a meter?  Use mass transit?  Pay tolls?  Get caught driving without a seatbelt, or expired inspection?
Did I miss anything?

Add all that up and figure out how much you pay per month in taxes.  If you're like me, it's not quite your mortgage payment, but it's waayyy more than your car payment.  Also consider what those businesses pay in taxes where you spent your money.

Now think how many times you used government services last month and were satisfied with the outcome.  Were your roads clean, clear, and pothole free?  Did any local politicians get in trouble for misusing funds?  Go to a park?  How much litter did you see?  Look at the news, is there a town struggling with crime nearby, meanwhile when a cop is driving behind you, do YOU feel nervous?  Are you living in a town struggling with crime while a neighboring town has cops that ticket people for jaywalking?  Know anyone who works in government that is completely worthless?  The examples of government waste can go on and on and on...

BUT...you didn't do all of that did you?  I bet you didn't even read my entire post.  If you can't even be bothered to read a few paragraphs and consider their worth, then how can you be trusted to have a completely formed and well-thought out opinion on anything?  Much less an opinion on something that affects us all.

The simple fact is this:  The more money we as citizens make, the more our government can waste.  I would feel much better paying for people with disabilities, roads, etc. which would cost me next to nothing if I didn't also have to pay for inefficient, ineffective government.

So how are they supposed to build and maintain roads, garbage collection, sewage and water treatment, schools, police, national defense, etc etc etc? What do you propose, going around asking everyone nicely to please contribute what they think is fair and then praying that it covers the bills?

When anarchists try to explain their philosophy to statists, this is about the most common response.

If I use violence to extract money and to maintain a monopoly on the building of roads, then defenders of that regime can say "if the state didn't steal your money, we wouldn't have roads".

If I ensure people are defenceless, then defenders of the regime can say "if the state didn't steal your money, who would pay the police to protect you?"

The answer's aren't rocket science, but without reimagining society, most statists struggle to get their head around it. Most anarchists aren't simply saying stop paying taxes and leave everything as is. They are saying "what would happen if we lived in a world where violent coercion didn't exist?" "What would happen if instead of extorting money on threat of violence, we let individuals to work together to form communities, and let communities of communities work together?"

Society as it exists today is a symptom of the state.

That is basically a complete dodge of the question. Essentially you are saying "oh no that's not what we're saying" but then you fail to explain how you propose these things would get funded. The bottom line is we all know that everyone talks a big generous talk but when it comes down to it, no one is going to voluntarily pay to support many of the things they use and depend upon every day unless they ARE forced to. People are cheap bastards.

The error in your thinking is that you are expecting an anarchist society to look like society today, just without the government. It won't.

I can't tell you how a road from A to B would be built, because it would be an organic process. Who wants it? Who needs it? Who is willing to design it? To build it? To contribute to it?

They're supposed to get educated about the issues at hand, vote, write to their congress members, etc etc.

Honestly one of the biggest issues is people don't care or don't really know about the issues that they claim to be pissed off about. I love when they do surveys and find that for example 30% of people support one side, 25% support the opposite, and the rest don't know don't care or don't have any better idea.

Yep, insert cryptocurrencies into the existing reality and this is what you get.

Instead of building a new economy around Bitcoin, the pump and dumpers, the speculators, the schemers, and all the other small time players thought it would be a great idea to fight the existing reality..

Your quote kind of backfired but no worries.

Good Lord, are you really that short-sighted?

And that blind to everything good about crypto currencies?

Anyone can cherry pick all that is bad.  But only reveals your ignorance for not including all that is good as well.

Are you really that ignorant?  Or are you just another government shill?

All those "problems" will get sorted out.  In the meantime crypto currencies even in their current "flawed" state are vastly superior to the legacy banking system, and have more then made the current model obsolete.


...But go ahead and hallucinate otherwise.  The cat is out of the bag.  Your 100 year scam is crumbling by the day.  You and your 3 letter agencies are fucked on this one.

I paid my taxes, both income for mining + capital gains. I was absolutely thrilled to do it. I never would've figured that bitcoin would make anything, it was originally intended to be a hobby. It's a great boon I made anything at all.

Paying taxes to live and enjoy one of the best areas in the world is a non-issue for me.

Exactly. People come from just about every other country on the planet to be here yet a lot of people born here just sit around and complain. Things aren't perfect anywhere and human nature includes some negative tendencies so of course we have some issues in the current system. But given the choice I wouldn't rather be anywhere else - you can pry my eagle passport from my cold dead hands lol.

OP, if you have an issue with the tax system (I agree we get taxed a lot, perhaps too much) then do something constructive about it. What you are doing is akin to the tenants that say "well I won't pay my rent this month because the landlord hasn't fixed XYZ in the apartment." Wrong approach dude.

what a fool leave sleeping dogs alone
The dogs are not asleep. The dogs of government are rabid, and they have been devouring innocent people for a hundred years. It's time to put them down.

Anyone who is worried about the tax implications of holding cryptocurrency, don't be. Cryptocurrency is the END of fiat, capiche?

There is no going back. Nation-state scrip is a dead thing walking. The IRS is a dead thing walking. The US dollar is most CERTAINLY a dead thing walking.

Even capitalism itself is rapidly becoming a dead thing walking.


Cryptocurrency won't be the end of fiat, it will be alongside fiat just that fiat usage will gradually be reduced. Just like the emergence of the internet and email, we now simply send emails rather than letters, but still for certain occasions we'd still lick up a stamp and stick it in a corner for good old-fashioned snail mail, for whatever reason.

Back to OP's subject, I suspect the government of the USA is still trying to figure out what to make of Bitcoin (or rather, how to best capitalise on it). Is it a commodity or a currency? Is it both or neither? But one thing governments around the world(the greedy ones at least) do know for bloody sure, is to tax first, everything else later.

Isn't spending bitcoins a tax event, meaning you must account for the fiat value of any gains regardless (i.e. fiat value of the goods or services you purchase minus fiat value of the bitcoins when you acquired them)?  The tax ruling was not just about converting BTC to fiat.
They even consider trading bitcoins for bitcoins to be a taxable event.
It is absurd.
I commend the op and anybody with the balls to refuse their outrageous demands.

Taxing bitcoins is like taxing maplestory mesos or any in-game currency, it's silly.

Good post.

I own the entire Moriarty Bitcoin Network of 50+ websites including BitPlastic.com, BitLaunder.com, etc ... we do transactions of over 100 bitcoins daily throughout the network.

Guess how much tax we paid?

0.00

The IRS is the biggest scam in history.  The Federal Reserve can print all the money it needs.  The only reason it taxes the population is to keep the middle class in check. 

My network of sites reports transactions to no government whatsoever!  And we do not maintain records on our customers nor verify identities. If you use CoinBase or CaVirtEx, the US and Canadian governments will know exactly how much money you spent on Bitcoins. And eventually you will get a knock on the door.

Stay safe.

A cryptoanarchist bitcoiner with a bank account?

Blasphemy!

The only place I keep fiat is in my wallet. Banks are for suckers.

You don't have a bank account.  That means that you probably don't have a house, or a credit card, direct deposit, or children, or any of the other things that are part of normal life.  You are basically a monk of a pseudo-religion.  Your experience is so far from our own that any advice that you might have is likely to be useless or even dangerous to us.

Monks cannot provide a good example to the rest of us, because if we all lived like monks there would be no families and thus no future.  All purely monastic societies die sooner or later.

This post made me laugh so hard I nearly shit myself.

This WAS meant as a joke right?

I think this nice and clear calculator may be appropriate for this discussion.

http://act.one.org/sign/fy15_budget/

If you don't want to click on the link, here is an example of someone who makes $60k gross per year of profits.

Of this amount, this guy has paid $11,125 in taxes and here is how these taxes are going to be used:

$2,614.38 for social security
$1,891.25 for national defense
$1,657.63 for unemployment
$1,579.75 for medicare
$1,368.38 for health
$934.16 for other expenses
$678.73 for interests on US debt
$111.25 on foreign assistance

I myself am happy to contribute to all these things. I would like to reduce national defense but I would not put a $0 there.

I think this nice and clear calculator may be appropriate for this discussion.

Another brainwashed apologist for the Federal Reserve scam...

Not one red cent of the income tax goes to those things other then interest on the debt... the fraudulent debt created by design to enslave you.

P.S.  Don't forget to include in your list...

Baseless, unfounded wars of aggression
Government sponsored torture
Government kill lists
TSA
Ubiquitous government spying of every detail of your life
Unending terrorizing of sovereign countries through relentless drone attacks
The shredding of the Constitution

Hell, you can even be jailed now for collecting rainwater on your own land!

Wake the $%^^ up.  Every dollar you send them is used only to further enslave you.  And further a globalist, anti-human agenda.

If you support that, then by all means, send them your wealth.

But if you actually do have a moral conscience, and actually do want a future for your children with some modicum of freedom and prosperity, then use every tool at your disposal acting out non-violent civil disobedience.

Don't enable that monster any longer folks.

Well, it happened OP.

I took my garbage out to the road yesterday and nobody came to pick it up.

I called the government today and asked why they did not pick up my garbage. They told me "some guy didn't pay taxes on his bitcoins so we don't have enough money to pick up garbage"

Thanks a lot.

I wish government wasn't the only entity that could provide garbage service. Yet, according to some people, it apparently is.

Elwar are you ignorant, or just plain brainwashed beyond hope?  Or perhaps too apathetic to do some research.

Are you so ignorant as to really believe the income tax pays for garbage collection?Huh

Nope, city taxes do that...

Nor should you have.  Why so they can use it to start more wars or claim it goes to schools and roads even though both are in the worst shape ever.  Or maybe so they can use it to arm themselves against the citizens?

I am really fascinated by this Thread. There is so much BS going on here.
In the end, all you "anarchist" just want to keep your money.
Do you "anarchists" know, what Common Goods are? I don't think, I saw that term in this thread.
Let me ask one question:
Besides not paying taxes(because government is bad), what do you do to change the system?
It should be clear for everybody with some brain, that just not paying taxes wouldn't change anything, shouldn't it?

You should clean that bullshit off your mirror, then.

Anarchists want to SPEND 100% of their OWN money. Not have it taken at the barrel of a gun, then spent by evil, sociopath pieces of shit who feign having IQs below that required to complete toilet hygiene tasks without daily assistance/reeducation.

NBA Store coupons here!
Saying that you don't trust someone because of their behavior is completely valid.

Did you earn the money without using any infrastructure the government provides? If not, it is not 100% your money.
That's the same as a manager, who just stops paying his employees because he thinks, he did all the work and should get 100% of the gains.
You "anarchists" are not better, than this asshole capitalists.

what do you do to change the system?
I use BTC.
I run a 1TB freenet node.
I pirate things.
I piss in polices coffee.
I advocate free thought when possible and encourage individuals to stop thinking like lemmings.
I break many laws.
I contribute nothing, and take everything.
I hope and pray for the day that the mountain of debt becomes a vertical wall and the U.S. falls on its fat ass.
I encourage others to do all of the above.

Fear of the law makes you a slave.
Materialism makes you a slave.
Lack of education makes you a slave.
Inability to form your own thoughts/opinions makes you a slave.
Gluttony makes a slave.
Sexual immorality makes you a slave.
Laziness/sloth makes you a slave.
Laws confine/restrict/punish human liberty.
Government/Civilization enslaves the human race.

Nobody is truly free.
Freedom is a nearly unattainable ideal.

The way to have freedom is to be outside the jurisdiction of any government.
Career Criminals have true freedom, they do as they please.
They exercise their freedom until another human exercises the freedom to imprison them.
Most of us cannot/will-not take our rebellion to outlaw level.

Freedom is a nearly unattainable ideal.

The only way to have freedom is to be alone and outside the jurisdiction of any government.

Or come to the realization that you answer to no one.  Not to any government.  Not to any external authority.

You answer to natural law only.

How many governments are using fear & intimidation to get you to break those natural laws, forcing you to be party to killing & torture?

Doesn't matter if they forced you to or not, there's still a karmic price on your head for enabling that killing & torture.

Consider how much your spinelessness, falling prey to their fear & intimidation, is really costing your soul.

Consider what you're enabling next time you so gleefully write that check to the illegal & outlaw collection agency for the fraudulent Federal Reserve.

There is nothing good that has come from the Federal Reserve scam... only pain & suffering for all of humanity.

Any moral human would resist with all their heart & soul enabling such a system in any way.  Even if that means risking jail, torture, or even death.

How flawed can your logic be?  Did you bother to read that before posting?

We all have our freewill.  And with freewill comes the responsibility to accept the consequences of all freewill choices. Nobody has the right to violate anyone's freewill.  Do so & you most certainly should go to prison.

Your logic trying to paint true free men/women as criminals could not be more flawed & idiotic.

Only courageous humans who refuse to answer to anyone but their own conscience, always respecting the freewill of others, & the Golden Rule are truly free.  (The exact opposite of any criminal.)

Yes, because tax revolts are so un-American and never achieve anything ....

Quote
The Tea Party was the culmination of a resistance movement throughout British America against the Tea Act, which had been passed by the British Parliament in 1773. Colonists objected to the Tea Act because they believed that it violated their rights as Englishmen to "No taxation without representation," that is, be taxed only by their own elected representatives and not by a British parliament in which they were not represented. Protesters had successfully prevented the unloading of taxed tea in three other colonies, but in Boston, embattled Royal Governor Thomas Hutchinson refused to allow the tea to be returned to Britain.

The Boston Tea Party was a key event in the growth of the American Revolution. Parliament responded in 1774 with the Coercive Acts, or Intolerable Acts, which, among other provisions, ended local self-government in Massachusetts and closed Boston's commerce. Colonists up and down the Thirteen Colonies in turn responded to the Coercive Acts with additional acts of protest, and by convening the First Continental Congress, which petitioned the British monarch for repeal of the acts and coordinated colonial resistance to them. The crisis escalated, and the American Revolutionary War began near Boston in 1775.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boston_Tea_Party

It is ALWAYS about the money you fools, taxes are at the root of the evil of a coercive state. Only criminals steal under the colour of threat of violence.

The difference is, that you guys don't officially declare, that you stop paying taxes. You are not a resistance movement, you are just some cowards hiding in the shadow and hope to don't get caught.
Comparing yourself to real revolutionaries just shows, that you have no idea, what you are talking about.

You don't get it Turvarya.... Crypto currencies have changed the game.

There is no need to "resist" anything.   Simply ignore them & conduct business outside of that corrupt system... in spite of their threats & intimidation tactics. 

Good luck 3 letter agencies finding & seizing crypto assets!  They are powerless against this new paradigm.  Fear is the only card they have left to keep the spineless lemmings compliant.  Soon enough the lemmings too will realize the game has changed.

Non-violent civil disobedience has always been the most effective agent of change against corrupt & evil systems... and always takes courage.  Calling us cowards proves that YOU have no idea what you're talking about.

Another brainwashed apologist for the Federal Reserve scam...

Not one red cent of the income tax goes to those things other then interest on the debt... the fraudulent debt created by design to enslave you.

Ehm, I think you got it wrong. On every paycheck that I receive, sums are withdrawn for social security, medicare, etc.

It should be clear for everybody with some brain, that just not paying taxes wouldn't change anything, shouldn't it?

Yes, because tax revolts are so un-American and never achieve anything ....

The Tea Party was the culmination of a resistance movement throughout British America against the Tea Act, which had been passed by the British Parliament in 1773. Colonists objected to the Tea Act because they believed that it violated their rights as Englishmen to "No taxation without representation," that is, be taxed only by their own elected representatives and not by a British parliament in which they were not represented. Protesters had successfully prevented the unloading of taxed tea in three other colonies, but in Boston, embattled Royal Governor Thomas Hutchinson refused to allow the tea to be returned to Britain.

The Boston Tea Party was a key event in the growth of the American Revolution. Parliament responded in 1774 with the Coercive Acts, or Intolerable Acts, which, among other provisions, ended local self-government in Massachusetts and closed Boston's commerce. Colonists up and down the Thirteen Colonies in turn responded to the Coercive Acts with additional acts of protest, and by convening the First Continental Congress, which petitioned the British monarch for repeal of the acts and coordinated colonial resistance to them. The crisis escalated, and the American Revolutionary War began near Boston in 1775.

It is ALWAYS about the money you fools, taxes are at the root of the evil of a coercive state. Only criminals steal under the colour of threat of violence.
The difference is, that you guys don't officially declare, that you stop paying taxes. You are not a resistance movement, you are just some cowards hiding in the shadow and hope to don't get caught.
Comparing yourself to real revolutionaries just shows, that you have no idea, what you are talking about.

You don't get it Turvarya.... Crypto currencies have changed the game.

There is no need to "resist" anything.   Simply ignore them & conduct business outside of that corrupt system... in spite of their threats & intimidation tactics. 

Good luck 3 letter agencies finding & seizing crypto assets!  They are powerless against this new paradigm.  Fear is the only card they have left to keep the spineless lemmings compliant.  Soon enough the lemmings too will realize the game has changed.

Non-violent civil disobedience has always been the most effective agent of change against corrupt & evil systems... and always takes courage.  Calling us cowards proves that YOU have no idea what you're talking about.
So, what exactly is the difference between you guys and a company like Google, that also have it's ways to avoid taxes? You "anarchists" do the same as this "bad capitalists".
Your "civil disobedience" just benefits yourself, so don't act like some kind of freedom fighter. You are not going to change this "corrupt & evil systems". You are just making it worse for people who can't use the same tricks as you.
Spread as much BS as you want, but as long as you can't show, how you make the world a better place for other people than you, you are just an ego manic coward.

Spoken like a true government shill.  

If you believe in & support what that system is doing, go ahead...send them your wealth.  Hell, send them double if you feel it benefits the world so much.

But.. If you send in that check out of fear of what might happen if you didn't, then who's the coward!

Show me one benefit the Federal Reserve scam has done for the world.

Nothing but endless wars, torture, mayhem... and the economic raping of the true value producers of the world have resulted from that system.

How do I & others who refuse to support that system benefit the world?  If the answer to that isn't painfully obvious then you're brainwashed beyond hope.  

And for the record, since the corporate tax only goes to fund the military industrial establishment, I fully support google, apple, & any other company doing absolutely everything in their power to avoid enabling that monster too.

Any government "benefit" any American receives does not come from the illegal & immoral income tax & the Federal Reserve scam that is behind it.  Your government's own Grace commission proved that.


You government shills gotta get more creative.  You're using the oldest tactics in the book.  Nobody but the mindless lemmings buys those tired tactics.

We all have our freewill.  And with freewill comes the responsibility to accept the consequences of all freewill choices. Nobody has the right to violate anyone's freewill.  Do so & you most certainly should go to prison.

Your logic trying to paint true free men/women as criminals could not be more flawed & idiotic.

Only courageous humans who refuse to answer to anyone but their own conscience, always respecting the freewill of others, & the Golden Rule are truly free.  (The exact opposite of any criminal.)
Freewill is god given at time of birth, it is called free agency in the bible.
Freedom is not equal to freewill.

Freedom is something those who I am descended came here for, we don't have it.
Laws are not just to protect others, not in this country or any other.
Laws supress freedom in genral. For example the government prohibits certain harmful substances from being used while allowing other equally as harmful substances. I found a site that lists quite a few unconstitutional laws.

Sage you clearly are having your time of the month based off your posts here.
You are ignored, have a nice life.
Bottom line, Free agency is God given, Freedom is a lack of human rights violating laws which no country currently has.
According to your logic even slaves have/had freedom, They have free will. They can refuse to work and "accept the consequences," they can run away and "accept the consequences."

That is one of the most stupid things, I have ever heard. In Austria we have the saying: Geld hat kein Mascherl. Money doesn't have a bow tie. That means you can't trace every penny. If they don't get enough money with income taxes, they just take it from the gas or property taxes.

Seven pages in and no one has proven that I owe the IRS anything for capital gains.

That's because they have no idea what private keys I possess.

You have to tell us something more to give you an answer. Tell us something about the way you get your income and the way you spend your money. For example, are you paid for your work in BTC? How do you convert BTC in USD for anything you need to pay that does not accept BTC? How do you pay rent, electricity, internet, etc?

There may be a loophole in your process.

For example, let's say you provide web design services. I hire you and I pay you with BTC. Your part of the transaction is transparent to IRS but I will deduct your payment to the IRS as my business' expenses. If I am audited, I will tell the IRS that I paid you in BTC and the IRS will ask you where those BTC are and it's your burden to give them this info.

Another example. You have a bunch of BTC but you have to pay your rent in USD. You need to convert those BTC in USD. Of course, if you use an exchange platform such as Coinbase, they will get you. Maybe you will get cash selling BTC to someone for USD. That someone may be another loophole for you. Also, you pay rent and your landlord puts that rent in his income. If he is audited, he will show IRS that he received cash from you and IRS will then ask you where you got that cash from.

In summary, as long as your whole life is not in BTC, you may get caught because of third parties you have interacted with.

Ah ah, sure, and the IRS will say "Oh, ok, fine, we understand". I want to see him trying to explain where he gets monthly cash to pay for rent  Smiley

Anyhow, I don't wish anything bad to happen to our fellow Bitcoin lover (we are all Bitcoin lovers, let's remember that). It's just that I think that as long as your whole payment history is not in BTC, the IRS can still catch you.

Absence of evidence, is not evidence of abstinence, true.

That said, A person can say whatever they want, unless the I.R.S. has some proof otherwise they either have to investigate further or let it go.

I hope you get caught
I hope the exact opposite. I watched Robin Hood the other day (the Disney version) ...

You do realize the I.R.S. is more like Robin Hood in this situation.

As much as I dislike the government/I.R.S., the OP is probably middle to upper class and if he/she paid the taxes it would be used in part for Social Security which goes to the elderly and disabled.
Those who are not disabled/elderly and simply choose not to work probably don't deserve handouts.

If he/she is dodging taxes he/she probably isn't giving anything to any charity.

Let me say that I find this discussion pretty interesting. One additional concern that I have on the position of OP is the following one.

We can follow the belief of OP or have other opinions but I think we all want Bitcoin to succeed for different reasons. My concern is that if Bitcoin is seen as having as a main advantage the one to allow people to dodge taxes and hide their money, Bitcoin will fail because Government will highly regulate it. Unfortunately, Government has ways to completely kill Bitcoin, if they want to. They can start heavily taxing miners, they can ask for licenses for exchange platforms, they can expand criminal laws (terrorists may exchange money via Bitcoin), etc. And most likely the position of Government would be shared by most of the people: "what is this new tool that allows you to hide money? Why do you need to hide money? Do you have something to hide? Are you a terrorist? Are you a mafia guy?", etc.

We should focus, instead, on the technology aspect of Bitcoin, show to people why Bitcoin can benefit everyone: lower transaction fees mean that stores may give discounts, instant transfer means that you can send money to your family in another state or country with no delay, etc.

Don't be so damn ignorant.  No matter what the Bitcoin community does, central banks will use every tool at their disposal to kill or co-opt Bitcoin.

It's in direct competition with fiat.  Without fiat, they can't steal the wealth off the world.

There is no appeasing them.  

There is no trying to abide by their new & retroactively applied regulations.  

The only solution is to simply ignore them!

And one of the biggest selling points of Bitcoin & crypto currencies is the ability to ignore them, conducting business outside of the fiat scam system.

SHOUT it from the housetops.  There's now a way out!  

Any intelligent person will quickly see the advantage to taking that option.  The dependent & brainwashed lemmings will spout the kind of rhetoric you're spouting now....desperately clinging to a dying paradigm & keep whatever "benefits" they feel that dying system gives them.

Make no mistake about it, the cat is out of the bag.  Crypto currencies are an idea who's time has come.  They cannot shut down Bitcoin anymore then they can shut down Bittorrent.

All they can do is use toothless threats & intimidation to bluff the mindless lemmings into complying.

Get on the right side of history.  Embrace it.  Ignore the old dieing system.

I hope you get caught
I hope the exact opposite. I watched Robin Hood the other day (the Disney version) ...

You do realize the I.R.S. is more like Robin Hood in this situation.

As much as I dislike the government/I.R.S., the OP is probably middle to upper class and if he/she paid the taxes it would be used in part for Social
Security which goes to the elderly and disabled.
Those who are not disabled/elderly and simply choose not to work probably don't deserve handouts.

If he/she is dodging taxes he/she probably isn't giving anything to any charity.

Ehmmm....This is not quite right as you think it is.

The system is rotten at its core.

Robin hood gave the money to whom it was stolen from by outrageous taxes in the first place. You wish to give the money to people that never owned it based on your morality of who should have the money.

Yes OP is much closer to RH.
Robin Hood stole from the rich and gave to the poor.
The U.S. Government taxes the rich and gives to the poor.
We could embrace the alternative to social welfare, that is desperation/prostitution/robbery/muggings.
People will be robbed by poor/disabled people and they will outnumber by MANY.
The number of poor/disabled would be greater than all the jails combined could hold.
Also, jails cost money too, it would just shift the social welfare.
It is important to keep in mind, People who get Social Security paid into it, and are simply receiving what they paid for.
The U.S. government borrowed from Social Security when times were good now they are paying it back when times are less good.

Ehmmm....This is not quite right as you think it is.

The system is rotten at its core.
The I.R.S and Social Security are in the US.
The link is a UK related article.
Whenever a good thing exists people will always abuse/misuse it.
The internet is a good example, it is a great thing that provides knowledge/opportunities and people use it for evil.

As much as I dislike the government/I.R.S., the OP is probably middle to upper class and if he/she paid the taxes it would be used in part almost entirely for Social Security which goes to the elderly and disabled. to pay the interest on Treasury bonds so the stockholders in the Federal Reserve can receive their 6% annual dividend on all US Dollars in existence.

Right, You all are so certain.
For the most part new debt is used to pay old debt.
Taxes go to alot of things.
Repayment of the ssa debt is one of them.
The government shoulda kept their hands out of the ssa cookie jar.

Another government shill spouting mis-information.  How do you shills sleep at night?  

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Grace_Commission

"With two thirds of everyone’s personal income taxes wasted or not collected, 100 percent of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the federal debt and by federal government contributions to transfer payments. In other words, all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services [that] taxpayers expect from their government."

Do you really think anything has changed?

Not one red cent of the income tax goes to benefit any American whatsoever.  It goes back into the banksters pockets.  All by design.  

...Where it is used to foment wars for profit...  

That's what central banks do... enslave nations with debt through fomenting, then funding wars.  That's what you're supporting when you send in that check to the private criminal organization known as the Federal Reserve & their collection agency the IRS.

Seven pages in and no one has proven that I owe the IRS anything for capital gains.

That's because they have no idea what private keys I possess.

You have to tell us something more to give you an answer. Tell us something about the way you get your income and the way you spend your money.

botolo86 is a government shill working for the IRS.

Roads/bridges are paid for by gas taxes.

Sewer & library is paid for by city taxes.

Water is paid for by you.  Did you miss your water bill?

Local police, fire, and courts are all paid for by city/state taxes.

Not one red cent of the income tax goes toward any of those things.  Another brainwashed lemming!

The stupidity of people is breathtaking. These morons think that roads and bridges require extorting money out of people or no one would build them. Nevermind that the free market has put a smartphone in everyones' pockets, or that the free market can bring us food from all over the planet, we need government to extort money from us to pave roads?

The free market can create, market, and sell to even the poorest of people smartphones, but these morons think that without government, no one could could figure roads out??

Seriously, you statist morons embarrass yourselves. Its to the point that the rest of us need to consider you as a food source because you're too stupid to be considered human beings anymore.

Interesting, you are referring to the results of a commission that presented its report more than thirty years ago. It's a little bit old evidence.

Just to clarify how taxes work, here is some additional info for you, released by the National Priorities Project, an American non-governmental organization founded in 1983. NPP’s mission is to make federal budgets transparent and accessible so that citizens can engage in overseeing and influencing how their tax dollars are spent.

Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/National_Priorities_Project

According to the report total federal tax revenues in fiscal year 2014 are projected to be $3 trillion. These revenues come from three major sources: income taxes paid by individuals, accounting for 46 percent of all tax revenues; payroll taxes paid jointly by workers and employers, accounting for 34 percent; and corporate income taxes paid by businesses, making up 11 percent.

Source: http://nationalpriorities.org/budget-basics/federal-budget-101/revenues/

In fiscal year 2014, the federal government will spend around $3.8 trillion. [...] The U.S. Treasury divides all spending into three groups: mandatory spending and discretionary spending and interest on debt. Interest on debt, which is much smaller than the other two categories, is the interest the government pays on its accumulated debt, minus interest income received by the government for assets it owns.

This is where the spending will go:



Source: http://nationalpriorities.org/budget-basics/federal-budget-101/spending/alt/?utm_expid=84498401-5.1T2lB6d5SEmMcoN-3M_tZA.1&utm_referrer=http%3A%2F%2Fnationalpriorities.org%2Fanalysis%2F

If you want, you can also see how taxes were used in previous years, by accessing the public budget that you can find on the pages of the same website.

In any case, I am not going to participate in this debate anymore, OP in his last post showed how little respect he has for the freedom to express your own thoughts. I was trying to create a constructive debate together with other users here but reading about "the stupidity of people", "morons", "food source" simply demonstrate how little you guys are interested in a fair exchange of ideas and opinions.

What botolo86, don't feel respected? (tear tear)  Not use to "citizens" not bowing to your every word?

God forbid they question your propaganda?

God forbid they don't cower at your fear & intimidation tactics!

God forbid they call out you & your shilling for what it is!

Yep the Grace commission was 30 years old.  Since then debt created by the illegal & fraudulent Federal Reserve has only exploded.

So too has the interest payment!  Reaching the dangerous tipping point of more then 100% GDP.


If you don't understand the significance of that botolo86, then perhaps you should ask your masters.  Or maybe actually do your own thinking & research outside of your masters approved boundaries.

It's laughable that you would use the Presidents proposed total spending to justify the the income tax.

…KNOWING that not ONE RED CENT OF THE INCOME TAX goes to ANY of that "proposed" spending other then interest on the debt to the frauds at the Federal Reserve.

There are actually LEGAL & CONSTITUTIONAL ways the federal government can fund itself.  The income tax is NOT one of them!

How do you shills sleep at night?  Knowing the pain & suffering your organization has caused in the world?  Do they brainwash you so much that you don't use an ounce of intellect or reason any longer?

...Or do they just buy you off, offering so much wealth ethics be damned?

You're either willfully ignorant or you've sold your soul botolo86.  In either case shills like you deserve no respect or attention.

what pisses me off about that pie chart if it is accurate is the 33%. That is mostly bullshit wasted money. I have been paying into SS for over a decade and I put a massive amount into my own retirement accounts myself, 33% for a support network and welfare and unemployment (which are being GROSSLY abused) is too fucking much.

OMG, you guys simply can't read. I told you that you can check the public balance of past years on the same website, all checked by this non-governmental entity. Guys, you can argue what you want but if the government publishes the balance and it's checked by a non-governmental entity, if you want to counter argue you have to bring evidence. Bring me an analysis of some reliable entity that has checked the balance of government of 2012 or 2013 and proves what you say. Then we will talk.

"Proposed" spending as "evidence" to justify the illegal income tax?

The federal government has a lot of sources of revenue.  Some are actually legal & constitutional.  To use those sources of revenue and "proposed" spending of that revenue to justify the ILLEGAL & IMMORAL income tax just goes to show just how flawed your logic is.

Not one red cent of the illegal income tax goes to benefit any American in any way!

Wake up SHILL!

You're on the wrong side of history!  The paradigm has changed.  Your 101 year scam is over.  You & the organizations you shill for are a dieing dinosaur.

You just repeat the same BS over and over again, without showing any evidence, besides a 30 year old report.
It doesn't become true, just because you repeat it over and over again.
It doesn't become true, just because you call other people shills.

People like you are the worst. Practical stealing from others but still claim to be on a moral high ground.

turvarya, you really need "evidence" that city taxes pay for your garbage bill.  That gas taxes pay for your roads.  That property taxes pay for schools (all of which the private sector could do for better & far cheaper... but that's another discussion).

...your arguments justifying the income tax could not be more pathetic & baseless.

It's YOU repeating the same tired & baseless argument to justify the illegal, immoral income tax.  

Show me one single benefit you or any other American receives as a consequence of the income tax!

It's the Federal Reserve scam behind the income tax that is raping & stealing the wealth from the true value producers of the world.  Not I.

...And they get away with it because of apathetic brainwashed lemmings who spout this baseless propaganda.

It's the Federal Reserve scam behind the income tax that is raping & stealing the wealth from the true value producers of the world.  Not I.

...And they get away with it because of apathetic brainwashed lemmings who spout this baseless propaganda.

I already told you, that I am not a US-citizen. You are really a special kind of ignorant.

@Sage and cryptoanarchist

You just repeat the same BS over and over again, without showing any evidence, besides a 30 year old report.
It doesn't become true, just because you repeat it over and over again.
It doesn't become true, just because you call other people shills.

People like you are the worst. Practical stealing from others but still claim to be on a moral high ground.
I really hope you guys get caught, it would be better for the world.
I am out.

turvarya, you really need "evidence" that city taxes pay for your garbage bill.  That gas taxes pay for your roads.  That property taxes pay for schools (all of which the private sector could do for better & far cheaper... but that's another discussion).

...your arguments justifying the income tax could not be more pathetic & baseless.

It's YOU repeating the same tired & baseless argument to justify the illegal, immoral income tax.

Then hardly qualified to be commenting on a system that you're obviously completely ignorant about!  

Do humanity a favor & delete the propaganda you pummeled on them that is -- by your own admission -- based in complete ignorance.

...Who's the special kind of ignorant turvarya!

One single benefit: Medicare. I know tons of American over 65 years old that receive their health benefits via Medicare. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Medicare_(United_States)#Financing

My dad pays a massive Medicare premium that is hardly affordable on a regular basis. Taxes don't fucking benefit Medicare, they're just flushed down the drain.

Medicare, Medicaid (for poor people), Obama Care, these are just some examples of money coming from federal income tax which are used to help people. Sage said "nobody receives help from federal income taxes". This is simply not true. Then we can discuss whether people receive enough help, whether we should spend tax money better, etc. But saying that federal income tax is used to pay for the debt and that's it is simply not true.

Even your own, link botolo86, says its funded by the payroll tax!

And boy do we sure get our moneys worth (eye roll).  If the government stayed out of medicare & free market forces were actually allowed at play in the marketplace, there would be no need for that payroll tax either.   Aspirin couldn't be billed at $25 per pill... nobody would pay that if they had to directly.  You could actually pay cash for your medical services and afford to do so.

You think we got a "benefit" from that system?  Nope.  The congressional lobbying by insurance companies, pharmaceutical companies, & health care "providers" created yet another forced system of enslavement.

Clever bastards they are.  But just as evil motives behind that system as those behind the biggest scam the world has ever seen... the Federal Reserve

Wake up botolo86.  Do your own research beyond what your masters allow you... The income tax benefits only the Banksters.

The Federal Reserve scam was forced into law in early morning hours of Christmas Eve, 1913.  It was voted at that time by design.   Knowing the only congress members that would be present were those in collusion with the banksters.

That very same year the income tax was forced on the people... under very dubious circumstances as well (See The Law That Never Was).

Coincidence?

Nope... it was all done by design.  Knowing that income tax would end up in their pockets.

botolo86 is dead wrong.  100% of the income tax goes to pay interest on the debt, & back into the Banksters pockets.

Where it is used to foment wars for profit.  To further enslave nation states through the debt to the Banksters those wars lead to.

botolo86, how do you shills sleep at night?  Knowing the death & mayhem the system you shill for is behind?

You're either willfully ignorant or have sold your soul to the devil.

And if that one was too much for you botolo86, here's it is explained in even simpler terms you might be able to actually understand...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGk5ioEXlIM

Wake up!  Only the Banksters benefit from that system you shill for.

Try to play by your master's rules, botolo86, and you'll forever be a slave.

There is no winning that game.  They set the rules.  

The only American & patriotic thing to do is refuse to play.

It's rather ironic a governemt paid shill calling the forum members who call him out trolls.

Is that the only card you have left botoko86?  No more baseless propaganda you're going to try to pass off as fact?

Sheesh, they gotta start training you shills better.

The last couple months there have been a lot of posts concerning the IRS ruling that bitcoins are to be treated as property and that it was required to pay a capital gains tax on the sale of bitcoins. Some people even posted that "bitcoin is doomed" because of the ruling.

To prove just how silly it is for people to worry about this, I created this thread to call out the IRS to prove what I owe in capital gains due to bitcoin sales.

So if there are any IRS employees trolling this thread, you're welcome to pour over the blockchain and tell me what I owe you.  Wink



Haha,

So funny

When CNN or a "seriously uptight" member of Congress wants to show "conclusive evidence" that BTC is being used to avoid paying taxes, you have given them a clear starting point. Nice work.

Let them show "conclusive evidence".  Let them try to ban Bitcoin.  Let them vilify it.  Let them marginalize its users.  Let them fight it all they want.

And just as banning books makes them coveted, banning Bitcoin will only make Bitcoin stronger.

Anyone with half a brain can see the clear advantage of crypto currencies.  And realize they can't ban it anymore then they can ban email or bittorrent.

There is no appeasing that system.

There's no trying to abide by their rules.  Bitcoin & the current system of fiat simply cannot co-exist. 

The more Bitcoin users who openly speak up, the more of the lemmings will begin to realize they too don't have to bow to their masters any longer.

The more people speak up & opening challenge the corrupt & evil system, the better.

There is a way out.  Nobody has to bow to that system any longer.  The more who stand up & shout what everyone is thinking anyway, but too spineless to say it, the better.
