    The 16th amendment was never ratified, so why should individual citizens who are not foreign business pay federal income tax? IRS can not demand anything- matter of fact, shouldnt you file to get a full refund??

    Also, the 5th amendment says that no person shall be deprived of property without due process of law... unfortunately politicians are very good at ignoring the constitution when they want to.

    My copy of the 16th Amendment says it was ratified. What you have here is a common urban legend.

    If you disagree, try filing a lawsuit and see how you do...

    Or you could Google the urban legend...

    Wik has a good summary: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/16th_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution
