In “The New Income Tax Scandal,” noted tax historian John C. Garrison contends that if the intent of the 16th Constitutional (or Income Tax) Amendment were properly applied, living expenses such as food, shelter, health care and others that are necessary to keep workers fit to produce income, would be tax deductible.

Gleaned from over 20 years of historical research and tax reform activism, Garrison’s book reveals shocking new findings about how Congress hijacked the 16th Amendment at its start, resulting in the bilking of American workers out of millions of hard earned dollars by depriving them of deductions they are legally entitled to.

“My book outlines in specific detail how profoundly Congress has betrayed American workers by illegally twisting the meaning and purpose of the U.S. Constitution’s 16th Amendment, whose intent, according to rulings of the U.S. Supreme Court, is to keep the income tax as an excise tax and not have it turned into a direct tax. This is the root of the problem,” said Garrison. “People will no longer be kept in the dark about this dirty little secret in income tax history whose corrupt legacy continues to this very day.”

In “The New Income Tax Scandal,” readers will also discover:

* How Congress illegally converted the income tax from an excise tax to a direct tax.

* How legal precedents showing a worker’s labor to be income-producing property are suppressed by federal judges to prevent the deduction of living expenses.

* How federal courts act outside the law and judges lie and break the rules to cover up income tax corruption.

* Garrison’s proposed new tax system which would resolve the current inequities.

“My purpose in writing this book is not merely to expose corruption,” said Garrison. “It is also my contribution toward the creation of a more equitable tax system, which is in line with the intent of the U.S. Constitution.”

JOHN C. GARRISON serves as a staff legal assistant at the State of Florida, Office of the Attorney General, Bureau of Administrative Law. He has been engaged in the study of tax history and in tax reform activism for over two decades.
