From whom do the kings of the earth exact tribute?

By Steven D. Miller

I was once just like you. I thought that citizens were “entitled to all privileges and immunities of citizens in the several States” just like it says in the Constitution. Then I found out that I was deceived into waiving my rights by legalities that I didn’t understand. It turns out that I unknowingly canceled my citizenship, thereby taxing my wages as if I was a foreign alien.

According to the Bible kings take tax only from foreign aliens (Matthew 17:24). Can the same be true in the United States today?

The direct taxation of Citizens is subject to Constitutional restrictions. The U.S. Constitution Article 1, Section 2 requires direct taxes to be apportioned among the several States. And all Congressmen also swore an oath to uphold Article 9 which stipulates “No capitation, or other direct tax shall be laid, unless in proportion to the census or enumeration herein before directed to be taken.” No, this was not changed by the 16th Amendment. The U.S. Supreme Court confirmed “… the 16th amendment conferred no new powers of taxation” in Stanton v. Baltic Mining Co. 240 US 103 (1915). As we shall soon see, foreign aliens remain subject to Income Tax laws.

Before we review the laws, let’s review some fundamentals:
• Governments are instituted among men to protect rights, not to destroy rights.
• A right cannot be taxed.
• You have a right to earn wages. But if you waive your right to earn wages, then your wages can be taxed.
• Prior to the 16th Amendment only government employees paid tax on their wages. Everyone else kept all of their earnings. Without income tax revenue we provided schools, courts, police, prisons, roads, a vast military and an embarrassing budget surplus. And we built the Panama Canal that resulted in more revenue from imposts, duties and excise taxes.
• The 16th Amendment was promoted as a way to tax the very rich. It was ratified upon the repeated reassurance that it would never tax wages. You did not want the rich to have rights, so legislators found a way to give you what you wanted. You are snared in your own trap. Proverbs 29:6 warned us that an evil man is snared by his own sin.

The IRS is a foreign debt collector that collects interest on the national debt, but only from foreign aliens. The proof is in the laws and regulations of your government.


1. The U.S. Code contains prima facie evidence of the laws of the United States. Let’s search through the index (Exhibit A) for the following topics:

• income tax, aliens
• income tax, citizens

As you can see in the index of U.S. laws, if you are a U.S. Citizen and you want to pay an income tax, there are only three ways to legally do this. Leave the country, live abroad or lose your citizenship.

The income taxes imposed on aliens has many pages in the index.

Did you become an alien by submitting to legalities that you didn’t understand?

2. There was once an IRS regulation for claiming to be a person not subject to withholding. See Exhibit B… It disappeared from the law books in the early 1990s. It was for aliens who become citizens.

Taxpayer identification numbers (SSN and EIN) are required by law for foreigners only. See Title 42 US Code 405(c)(2)(B)(i)(ii) and Title 26 Code of Federal Regulations 301.6109-1 and others. If you use an SSN, then you agreed to pay income tax, and other taxes, according to The Social Security Act Title VIII section 801. Watch out for these other taxes. This exact same phrase from the Social Security Act is repeated in the Internal Revenue Code Section 3101(a) as the authority to impose a tax on wages. By the way, slaves in the Bible had only a 20% income tax and were allowed to keep 80% as a living allowance (Genesis 47:23-26).

Here is what they don’t want you to know: when a new citizen applies for a Social Security Number: it changes their citizenship to being a resident alien of a foreign authority and they again become subject to income tax. But this new foreign authority is the banks to whom we owe our national debt. Otherwise a Citizen’s right to earn wages could not be taxed..

3. The Internal Revenue Service is not an agency of the United States. No federal prosecutor can go into a federal courtroom and claim that the IRS is a U.S. government agency. (Exhibit C… see Discovery Response 4.)

When I applied for a Social Security number, the application form was an IRS form, not a Social Security Administration form. The new revisions of the form do not mention whose form it is. Getting a Social Security Number from the non-agency waives your right to earn wages, thereby making your wages taxable.

4. A resident is an alien. Did you ever claim to be a resident?

A classic law textbook first published during America’s colonial era, and which is recognized as part of the received-law-of-the-land, Vattel’s 1758 Law of Nations, in Chapter 9, defines the word resident. Exhibit D...

5. According to the IRS Law Enforcement Manual, a check made payable to the IRS does not go to the Treasury. It can only go to a private bank to pay the interest on the national debt. Exhibit E…

6. Code of Federal Regulations Title 31 contains in Chapter 3, the duties of all agencies in the U.S. Treasury. The IRS is not mentioned. This chapter has not been published since the early 1990s, and FOIA responses refuse to provide it.

7. The IRS Form 1040 does not have its own OMB number. The OMB number they put at the top of Form 1040 is also for a Form 2555. They will rely upon your signature under penalty of perjury to prove in court that you knew that you were following the law.

8. The Secretary of the Treasury is forced to take orders from INTERPOL, whether he likes it or not, as is the Attorney General. They are the two U.S. representatives to INTERPOL. The Secretary of the Treasury is also the U.S. Representative to the International Monetary Fund.

The INTERPOL Constitution Article 30 states, in part:

“In the exercise of their duties, the Secretary General and the staff shall neither solicit nor accept instructions from any government or authority outside the organization. They must abstain from any action that might be prejudicial to their international task. Each Member of the Organization shall undertake to respect the exclusively international character of the duties of the Secretary General, and the staff, and abstain from influencing them in the discharge of their duties.”

In other words, the multinational authority that is already pre-authorized by the U.S. Congress in 1933 to control your buying and selling with “actions, regulations, rules, licenses, orders and proclamations heretofore or hereafter taken…” (quote from 12 U.S.C. §95b discussed below) is the very same multinational authority that issues Social Security Cards.

America was founded by those endowed by their Creator with unalienable rights. It was not founded by atheists or agnostics. They pledged their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to pass the blessings of liberty to their posterity. They did this by creating a government then delegating their God-given authority to their subordinate civil servants. Civil servants were NOT delegated any other authority. As was so eloquently stated by Blackstone’s Commentaries on the Law: “neither could any other law possibly exist”

How did your civil servants, whose office “We The People” created, get the authority to tax people who sell their own labor? Or legalize adultery or legalize sodomy, or seize property or cancel a marriage? They could not have been delegated these authorities from “We The People”, because we never had such authority ourselves. Answer: you turned your back on God by allowing usury, then your representatives declared bankruptcy in 1933 and turned the nation over to ungodly foreign creditors who run the bankruptcy receivership. Then they needed your labor as collateral for the national debt. So your representatives tricked people to worship (with their perjury oaths on “government” forms – that subjects you to the foreign “actions, regulations, rules, licenses, orders and proclamations heretofore or hereafter taken…” pursuant to 12 U.S.C. §95b. This law already authorizes whatever drastic actions he needs to take in order to control us. In Biblical terms, the ungodly creditors who control the bankruptcy receivership breathed life into the graven image you created. The citizen cannot complain because he shackled himself to this chain-of-command.

9. The 1994 treaty negotiations for foreign tariffs were held in Uruguay that year. Starting in 1995 IRS tax returns were required to provide SSNs for children. This was a requirement of “The Uruguay Round Agreements Act” which implemented the GATT Treaty (General Agreement on Tariffs and Trade). Section 742 (Exhibit F) of the Act is entitled “Taxpayer Identification Numbers Required at Birth” The foreign creditors wanted more collateral. The law was enacted as Public Law 103-465 and codified at 26 US Code Title VII, Subtitle E section 742, and 26 US Code 6109(e).

10. The IRS Payroll

You would think that the Department of the Treasury has enough authority and accountants to handle their own payroll. Think again.

The IRS payroll is paid by their overseers — The Department of Agriculture. Exhibit G…

There is much symbolism painted in the 1865 fresco on the canopy of the U.S. Capitol rotunda dome. According to Art In The U.S. Capitol, U.S. Government Printing Office, 1978, House Document 94-660, page 302:


I thought that gods provide for people. Why would the Roman goddess of Agriculture demand that people provide for her? What are you sacrificing to Roman gods?  And why was young America given a liberty cap?

The rotunda of the only building in Washington DC that represents the people has an 1865 fresco that tells you America had turned over all agriculture to Rome.  Unfortunately for you, the foreign IRS is still reaping your agriculture produce. The IRS payroll is paid by the Department of Agriculture. You are the crop being harvested. You are made from the dirt of the ground. (Genesis 2:7, 3:19 and 18:28, 1st Corinthians 15:47, Luke 3:8, etc). You are the agriculture being traded here. Traded for a little temporary liberty. All government regulated agriculture still belongs to Rome. See Wickard v Filburn 317 US 111 for the extent that agriculture is regulated. For more details on how America belongs to Rome read my free PDF Social Security: Mark of the Beast.

In heraldry the highest authority is always shown at the top. The IRS eagle logo has agriculture as the highest authority.


I obliterated the rest of the logo.

A second beast that rises up from the land has forced everyone to worship the first beast that rose from the sea, then causes all to receive* a mark to sell your labor or conduct banking.

* The original Revelation 13:16 Greek word translated as “receive” is didomi. It is nowhere else translated as “receive”. It can mean bestow, deliver, grant, offer, strike with the palm of the hand, take.

11. The U.S. government went bankrupt in 1933. All assets were turned over to the bankruptcy receivership including all our gold coins that were seized by FDR. The U.S. government has no assets of its own, not even a courthouse. The Justice Department represents, in Federal Court, the bankruptcy receivership. The IRS is not an agency of the United States government. The IRS is the receivership’s collection agency. It can only collect the interest owed on the national debt.
