David-Kevin: Lindsay

This story was interesting. A man calls himself "David-Kevin: Lindsay". He says that he's "not legally a person". Therefore, he doesn't owe income taxes.

was convicted in Provincial Court on five counts of failing to file income tax returns between 1997 and 2001.

He was sentenced to 30 days in jail on each count, to be served consecutively for a total of 150 days, and fined $5,000.
After appeal, the sentence was reduced to "time served".

Only 30 days in jail for "failure to file an income tax return"? State thugs in Canada must be real wimps! In the USA, "failure to file" usually leads to at least a year in jail, per year.

I also was disappointed by "David-Kevin: Lindsay". It would have been better for him to pick an SQL injection attack for a name.

David-Kevin: Lindsay is going around giving speeches on how the income tax doesn't apply to him, because he no longer legally qualifies as a person. I would prefer to see someone saying "All taxation is theft! The income tax is immoral because it means you don't own your own labor!", rather than arguing legal technicalities.

This argument comes up over and over again. "There's some magic paperwork I can file with the State. Then, I'm no longer subject to income taxes or property taxes." If such a loophole worked, everyone would do it. If such a loophole worked, then State thugs would rapidly close it. Tax-avoiding loopholes are only available to State insiders.

It is pointless to argue, in a State court, against State taxes. A slave will never get a fair trial regarding taxation, in a biased State court.

There are some people who do it and get away with it. State thugs don't have the resources to kidnap everyone who tries. There's more work to getting freedom than just filing some magic paperwork with the State.

If I ever had an offspring, I would name it "FULL OUTER JOIN" or "GLOBAL TEMPORARY TABLE". :P
