Introduction: To take away a man’s property against his will is theft. Taxation is legalized theft. It is a way to take the property from some people and give it to others.
1. Part-Time/Full-Time Business
This is the “business expense deduction method”. Form a part-time or full-time business and convert personal expenses into business expenses. Write-off everything you can. With a little creativity you can whittle your net taxable income down to little or nothing. Read this Case Study for an extreme example.
2. Independent Contractor
If you work for an employer ask if you can quit and be re-hired (through your LLC or virtual corporation) as an Independent Contractor. This eliminates income tax withholdings from your paycheck and it works perfectly with the deduction method in #1 above.
Eliminate your State Income Tax by changing your “official State residence” to a State where there is no personal income tax. See our Members Area for more information.
4. Foreign Address
Eliminate both State and Federal Income taxes by changing your “official residence” to one in a country that has no income tax. The list of countries is not constant but here are a few places to start your research: Andorra, Anguilla, The Bahamas, Bahrain, Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Cook Islands, Djibouti, Monaco, Turks and Caicos Islands, and Vanuatu.
U.S. Citizens who have an official residence – and earn their income – outside the U. S. have a “foreign earned income tax exclusion” of $91,500. A husband and wife could each qualify for the exclusion and effectively exclude $183,000 of foreign earned income from taxation.
5. Permanent Tourist & Privacy Technologist
Have no official residence or taxable income. Become a “Permanent Tourist”. Tourists are usually treated better than residents. Always be from “somewhere else”. If your passport is from country “A” spend your time in countries “B”, “C” & “D”. Read our “PT” books in our Members Area for details on this strategy.
6. Personal Secession – Expatriation
To “secede” is “to withdraw formally from an alliance, federation, or association, as from a political union…”. You can do this formally through expatriation or informally by simply declaring your independence and providing for your own protection. Expatriation involves formally renouncing your citizenship and obtaining a citizenship in a country that offers you a better tax deal. Click here to learn more about this option.
7. Declare Your Independence and become an Autarchist
Self Rule (Autarchy) includes but is not limited to: self-ownership, self-government, self-sustenance, self-control, self-mastery, self-reliance, self-defense, rational self-interest, self-improvement, self-esteem and personal responsibility. This means eliminating any dependence you may have on pretended “external authorities”.
The Autarchist does not participate in plunder. He does not use the ballot box to steal from – or force his will upon – his neighbor. This means he does not vote. Where he has the choice he rejects all public handouts and “government benefits”. He knows that they are paid for out of stolen property (taxes). This includes Social Security, government welfare, government subsidies, public education, government police protection, etc. If he has a problem with his neighbor he works it out. He never calls the police.
The Autarchist provides for his own sustenance and self-defense. He recognizes and respects the power of the State (which is made up of nothing more than the majority of his neighbors who authorize State plunder against him). He only engages them when he has no other choice. He most likely utilizes several of the previous six strategies. He keeps his personal financial affairs private. He minds his own business.
In providing for his own defense he uses tools and strategies that protect him from these predators. These tools and strategies include Invisible LLC’s, virtual corporations, encryption, and alternate currencies. He is most likely an Agorist who engages in Counter-Economic activity. He respects property rights which means he respects human life. He knows what it means to be free.
