IRS Quotes: What People Say About the Whackos main quotes page

Compiled by

Contact your misrepresentative in CONgress today, demanding action toward abolishing the Institute of Reprobates and Sociopaths. The surge in new jobs resulting from this desperately needed change would easily accommodate the relatively few decent people working in that useless, morally reprehensible agency plus provide new jobs for millions of useful people who just can't find work. The IRS is the single largest cause of unemployment there is (if you don't know why, you need to educate yourself!).

These quotations will help you understand why the IRS must go. Or, if you already know why, then they will help you convince others.

These are from IRS Commissioners

  • ". . . when it comes to the workings of our tax system, I have just about seen it all, and that experience has led me to the conclusion that we should repeal the Internal Revenue Code and start over. Eight decades. . . have produced an impenetrable maze. I favor replacing the system." -- Shirley D. Peterson, Attorney, former IRS Commissioner
  • "The IRS has become a symbol of the most intrusive, oppressive and non-democratic institution in our democratic society." -- Former IRS Commissioner Fred Goldberg
  • "... the key question is: can we define 'income' in a fair and reasonably straightforward manner? Unfortunately we have not yet succeeded in doing so. We should repeal the Internal Revenue Code and start over." -- Former IRS Commissioner Shirley Peterson, April 1993
  • "Eight decades of amendments... to [the] code have produced a virtually impenetrable maze... The rules are unintelligible to most citizens... The rules are equally mysterious to many government employees who are charged with administering and enforcing the law."
    - Former IRS Commissioner Shirley Peterson, April 14, 1993 at Southern Methodist University
  • "I believe that a better way to raise revenue not only can be found but must be found because I am convinced that the present system is leading us right back to the very tyranny from which those, who established this land of freedom, risked their lives, their fortunes and their sacred honor to forever free themselves..." "I don't like the income tax. Every time we talk about these taxes we get around to the idea of 'from each according to his capacity and to each according to his needs'. That's socialism. It's written into the Communist Manifesto. Maybe we ought to see that every person who gets a tax return receives a copy of the Communist Manifesto with it so he can see what's happening to him".
    -- Former IRS Commissioner T. Coleman Andrews, May 25, 1956 in US. News & World Report


These IRS quotes are from other respected people:

  • "Today the income tax is in trouble, because its exaction's are forcing the middle class into poverty, and IRS abuses are routine."
    -- Paul Craig Roberts, former Asst. Secretary - U.S. Treasury
  • "The (tax) system is so sick that we must put it to sleep and start over."
    -- Richard Davis, former Assistant IRS Branch Chief
  • "I just wanted to speak to you about something from the Internal Revenue Code. It is the last sentence of section 509A of the code and it reads: 'For purposes of paragraph 3, an organization described in paragraph 2 shall be deemed to include an organization described in section 501C-4, 5, or 6, which would be described in paragraph 2 if it were an organization described in section 501C-3.' And that's just one sentence out of those fifty-seven feet of books."
    -- Ronald Reagan (1911-2004) 40th US President
  • "To establish republican government, it is necessary to] effect a constitution in which the will of the nation shall have an organized control over the actions of its government, and its citizens a regular protection against its oppressions."
     -- Thomas Jefferson, Letter to Lafayette [1816]
  • The three Rs of the Internal Revenue Service: This is ours; that is ours; everything is ours. -- Bob Hope
  • "As long as our elected officials continue to act like sheep, all of us will continue to be fleeced. Except the shears go a little deep."
    -- Mark Lamendola, private citizen, writing to Congress about criminal activity within the IRS, as reported by the GAO.
  • "For the sake of appearance, the IRS sometimes asks for public input on IRS procedures. This is like the rapist asking a woman which orifice she prefers to have violated. The IRS simply leaves that one for last. We need real reform, rather than these useless PR stunts. We need to indict and prosecute IRS employees who break the law and consequently undermine our voluntary compliance system and our civil liberties. And believe me, there are plenty of them."
    -- Mark Lamendola, private citizen, commenting on an IRS outreach.
  • "What the 1st, 2nd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th, 9th, and 10th Amendments giveth--the 16th Amendment taketh away...."
    -- Mark Lamendola, private citizen, commenting on anti-crime legislation passed in Nebraska in late March, 2006.
  • "Tax cheaters drive me nuts. Not because they don't pay their fair share, but because they provide a ready excuse for the abuse of our civil liberties on the part of those who are supposed to catch them but focus on easier prey, instead."
    -- Mark Lamendola, private citizen, commenting on the compliance issue.

The misconduct of this organization has earned it "alternative names" such as those below:
