Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Will I, as a taxpayer, ever be required to make a payment to the IRS, or any other U S Government department or bureau, to pay a Constitutional Support Tax amount I owe to the U S Government??
  2. The Constitution, in Article I, Section 8, Cause (Paragraph) 1 (I-8-1), authorizes Congress "To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises." If I-8-1 remains in the Constitution, won't a future Congress be able to reimpose presently existing taxes on Americans and/or American businesses if the CST is law?
  3. The U S Government collects money from a variety of non-tax, non-borrowing sources. These include, but are not limited to, fees charged to loggers, cattlemen, oilmen and others for use of, and/or resource extraction on Federal land, campsite rentals at national parks, and many more. What will happen to all this money?
  4. How will the CST system address the accumulated National Debt?
  5. If the U S Government needs additional money due to a declaration of war, outbreak of military hostilities with a foreign power, or some kind of Act of God or other "national emergency" how will that money be obtained?
  6. Just exactly how will the yearly Federal Budget be divided among the 50* States? If each State is to receive a "ratable share" of the Budget, what fair-to-all-states formula will be developed to determine each State's ratable share?

Will I, as a taxpayer, ever be required to make a payment to the IRS, or any other U S Government department or bureau, to pay a Constitutional Support Tax amount I owe to the U S Government?

  • A resounding NO! The term Constitutional Support Tax (the CST) is a name, an identifying term only. There will never be an IRS form on which any American or American business will calculate a CST amount due the U S Government, then be forced to send it in.

The Constitution, in Article I, Section 8, Cause (Paragraph) 1 (I-8-1), authorizes Congress "To lay and collect Taxes, Duties, Imposts and Excises." If I-8-1 remains in the Constitution, won't a future Congress be able to reimpose presently existing taxes on Americans and/or American businesses if the CST is law?

  • No, because an amendment to the Constitution will repeal the Taxes, Imposts and Excises components of I-8-1. Duties (Tariffs) will be retained, because 100% of the Duties collected will used for the funding for the AHAF. The AHAF (American Heroes Appreciation Fund) will provide supplemental financial assistance, focused on Gold Star families, of servicemen dying due to combat-connected injuries.

    The 16th Amendment will also be repealed. The 16th is misunderstood as initiating income taxation in the USA. Income taxation started in 1861 by the northern States during the Civil War. The 16th made it far easier to levy "FULL" income taxation on America(ns), rather than the "PARTIAL" income taxation allowed by I-8-1.

How will the CST system address the accumulated National Debt?

  • The total dollar amount of National Debt, and the specific U S Government debt or similar securities comprising that dollar total, will be identified and calculated as of the date of repeal of I-8-1. New debt may be issued to refund those past debt securities, however, no new debt will be permitted for any new spending on new programs, or existing spending on existing programs in the future.

    This 'no new debt for new spending' will likely require a constitutional amendment modifying I-8-2.

If the U S Government needs additional money due to a declaration of war, outbreak of military hostilities with a foreign power, or some kind of Act of God or other "national emergency" how will that money be obtained?

  • Part and parcel of the new system will be a national "rainy day fund." The dollar amount in this rainy day fund should be an estimated amount, high enough to pay the costs/expenses of potential dangers. Five- to six-hundred billion dollars would likely be sufficient. The money will be deposited at a consortium of American banks within the lower 48 States.

    Authorization to access the money will require a 2/3 vote of both Houses of Congress, and signature of the President.

Just exactly how will the yearly Federal Budget be divided among the 50* States? If each State is to receive a "ratable share" of the Budget, what fair-to-all-states formula will be developed to determine each State's ratable share?

  • The formula will be computed from a "CST 1040" form filed by all Americans**. Essentially, the current long-form 1040 will become the CST 1040. No tax due to "the Feds" will ever be calculated.

    The CST 1040 will end at the total income line. The IRS will determine, on a state-by-state basis, the total income for each State from CST 1040s the for all residents of that State. The designated state tax agency will also calculate the total CST 1040 income from the residents of the State. The IRS and State tax agencies will cross check the dollar totals and reconcile any differences.

    Once the dollar totals are verified between the IRS and state tax agencies, a Grand Total for all 50+ States will be calculated. At this point, the simple arithmetic calculation of dividing each State's total income by the Grand Total for all States will determine the share that each State must (meaning mandatory) pay.

    One of the many benefits of the new system is a reduction in the number of IRS forms. Presently, there are roughly 1250 IRS forms. With the CST, there will only be the CST 1040 form, plus a few supporting calculation schedules and/or forms.

    Again, at the Federal level, no American or American business will pay any taxes to the U S Government.

    * There will actually be more than 50 "States" for CST purposes. Wash D C will be considered a state, plus certain U S territories and possessions.

    ** Some non-U S citizens are subject to possibly paying U S taxes presently. Special provisions will be made to address these very few situations.
