John Garrison, Noted Tax Law Researcher and Tax Reform Activist is Tapped for New Aaron Russo Film
Article Editor: Carly Zander
TALLAHASEEE, FL - November 9, 2004 /Send2Press Newswire/ -- John C. Garrison, prominent tax law researcher, tax reform activist, and legal specialist for the State of Florida's Office of the Attorney General, today announced that he has been tapped to appear in an Aaron Russo film discussing his views on U.S. income tax enforcement.
"Under Section 212 of the Income Tax Code, current tax enforcement denies employees the right to deduct their living expenses (food, shelter and other subsistence costs). But this is based solely on the presupposition that employees have no income producing property," said Garrison.
"However, in the case of Greene vs. McElroy, the U.S. Supreme Court declared that 'the right to hold specific private employment and to follow a chosen profession free from unreasonable governmental interference comes within the 'liberty' and 'property' concepts of the Fifth Amendment.' In light of this, employees do have an income-producing property. It is inherent in their right to work. Living expenses are ordinary and necessary to exercise one's right to work to produce income. For this reason, living expenses must of necessity be lawfully deductible."
In addition to his work with Aaron Russo, Garrison is penning a book called "The Income Tax Scandal," which outlines the corruption he believes lies at the heart of income tax enforcement and in the federal government's willful suppression of every employee's property which they hold in their Fifth Amendment right to employment.
"Clearly," Garrison concluded, "this revelation has enormous political and economic implications for every American employee and it is my hope that my book and Mr. Russo's film, will encourage policy makers to right this obvious injury to American workers."
John C. Garrison, M.A. has been engaged in tax law research and tax reform activism for over two decades. He holds a Masters Degree in Theological Studies from Chicago's North Park University and Seminary, a Bachelors Degree in Human Resources from Redlands University and has completed a graduate law curriculum at the University of San Diego.
He is the author of "The Psychology of the Spirit: A Contemporary System of Biblical Psychology." He currently serves as a legal specialist at the State of Florida's Office of the Attorney General, Bureau of Administrative Law.
Aaron Russo is a movie producer whose credits include Trading Places (1983), and The Rose (1979), and who also sought the Libertarian Party nomination in the 2004 U.S. presidential election.
