Title 31 U.S.C., Chapter 3 is entitled "Department of the Treasury".  It clearly shows the Federal agencies actually created by law through Acts of Congress.



§ 301. Department of the Treasury.
§ 302. Treasury of the
United States.
§ 303. Bureau of Engraving and Printing.
§ 304. Bureau of the Mint.
§ 305. Federal Financing Bank.
§ 306. Fiscal Service.
§ 307. Office of the Comptroller of the Currency.
§ 308.
United States Customs Service.
§ 309. Office of Thrift Supervision.
§ 310. Continuing in office.

Title 31, Chapter3

So, where is the IRS in this list if the agency actually exists by law (or in the law) ?

Because the
IRS is NOT found in this list, it cannot legitimately claim to be a Congressional agency.   It is nothing more than a mere (internal) office of the Treasury with authority over internal Federal affairs.    IF it doesn't need to be listed here, then why are all the others listed ?

If a Department or Bureau within the Treasury is not shown in this list of statutes (within this Title), then it cannot be anything more than the Treasury itself, and, of course, cannot possess any more power than the Treasury itself possesses.

The Treasury, if you remember, is a Cabinet position within the Executive branch of the government. Since it is within the Executive Branch of government, it can ONLY exercise those powers actually possessed by the Executive Branch, over internal Federal affairs. Without Congressional enactment (statute) extending power for a particular "bureau" into the 50 States,
ALL Treasury operations are INTERNAL to the administration of the U.S. government, and there is no legal authority over the public that exists, or that can be legitimately established ! Indeed this is EXACTLY what we find when we examine the statute claimed by the IRS as the justification for its existence and power:

Sec. 7803. Commissioner of Internal Revenue; Other Officials

            a) Commissioner of Internal Revenue

               (1) Appointment

                     (A) In general

There shall be in the Department of the Treasury a Commissioner of Internal Revenue who shall be appointed by the President, by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, to a 5-year term. Such appointment shall be made from individuals who, among other qualifications, have a demonstrated ability in management….


               (2) Duties

The Commissioner shall have such duties and powers as the Secretary may prescribe, including the power to—

(A) administer, manage, conduct, direct, and supervise the execution and application of the internal revenue laws or related statutes and tax conventions to which the United States is a party; and

(B) recommend to the President a candidate for appointment as Chief Counsel for the Internal Revenue Service when a vacancy occurs, and recommend to the President the removal of such Chief Counsel. …

26 U.S.C. § 7803

Can the Secretary of the Treasury prescribe powers and authorities applicable outside of the administration of the Federal government ???

Where is that in the Constitution ??

Notice that this statute does not actually create a Federal Agency, or Bureau, or even an office, It merely creates the "Officer" (Commissioner), without even creating any "office" for him to hold.

Clearly this is, and was intended to be, merely a position of internal administrative authority, and ONLY SUCH.


An Unanswerable Letter You Should Send to the IRSNew!Hot!

This letter has been mailed to the Commissioner of Internal Revenue (CIR) in large numbers. A man named Bill Petterson from Missouri sent a copy to his Congressman, Pat Danner, and Danner wrote back admitting that the IRS has never been created by statute.

We want lots of people mailing the letter to the new Commissione

Commissioner of Internal Revenue
1111 Constitution Avenue, N.W.

Washington, D.C. 20224


Dear Commissioner,


Text Box: Many years ago, I tried to find within the Internal Revenue Code the section which created your agency, the Internal Revenue Service, but I was unable to find it. I then decided to locate other sources of information regarding how the Internal Revenue Service was established and what I found was nothing short of amazing.
In 1972, an Internal Revenue Manual 1100 was published in both the Federal Register and Cumulative Bulletin; see 37 Fed. Reg. 20960, 1972-2 Cum. Bul. 836, a copy of which is attached for your convenience. On the very first page of this statement published in the Bulletin, the following admission was made:
" (3) By common parlance [sic] and understanding of the time, an office of the importance of the Office of Commissioner of Internal Revenue was a bureau. The Secretary of the Treasury in his report at the close of the calendar year 1862 stated that 'The Bureau of Internal Revenue has been organized under the Act of the last session...' Also it can be seen that Congress had intended to establish a Bureau of Internal Revenue, or thought they had, from the act of March 3, 1863, in which provision was made for the President to appoint with Senate confirmation a Deputy Commissioner of Internal Revenue 'who shall be charged with such duties in the bureau of internal revenue as may be prescribed by the Secretary of the Treasury, or as may be required by law, and who shall act as Commissioner of internal revenue in the absence of that officer, and exercise the privilege of franking all letters and documents pertaining to the office of internal revenue.' In other words, 'the office of internal revenue' was 'the bureau of internal revenue,' and the act of July 1, 1862, is the organic act of today's Internal Revenue Service." 
This statement, which again appears in a similar publication appearing at 39 Fed. Reg. 11572, 1974-1 Cum. Bul. 440, as well as the current IRM 1100, essentially admits that Congress never created either the Bureau of Internal Revenue or the Internal Revenue Service. To conclude that "Congress thought it had created this agency" is an admission that even the government itself cannot even find anything which created either agency. Only an Officer (the Commissioner) was actually created by the act of July 1, 1862; neither the Bureau nor the Service was actually created by any of these acts.
I have no doubt that when employees of the IRS were researching its origins so that this statement could be included within IRM 1100, those employees must have performed a very thorough investigation. This obviously is the best position that your agency can develop regarding precisely how the IRS came into being. But besides the problem that these acts simply did not create either the Bureau or the IRS is the fact that these acts were repealed by the adoption of the Revised Statutes of 1873. Therefore, it would appear that your agency has never been created by any act of Congress, and this is a serious flaw.
At the state level, it is a well acknowledged rule that a duly constituted office of state government must be created either by the state constitution itself or by some legislative act; see Patton v. Bd. of Health, 127 Cal. 388, 393, 59 P. 702, 704 (1899)("One of the requisites is that the office must be created by the constitution of the state or it must be authorized by some statute"); First Nat. Bank of Columbus v. State, 80 Neb. 597, 114 N.W. 772, 773 (1908); State ex rel. Peyton v. Cunningham, 39 Mont. 197, 103 P. 497, 498 (1909); State ex rel. Stage v.

State, 22 Ohio App. 462, 153 N.E. 876, 877 (1926)("Unless the office existed there could be no officer either de facto or de jure. 
A de facto officer is one invested with an office; but if there is no office with which to invest one, there can be no officer. An office may exist only by duly constituted law"); State v. Quinn, 35 N.M. 62, 290 P. 786, 787 (1930); Turner v. State, 226 Ala. 269, 146 So. 601, 602 (1933); Oklahoma City v. Century Indemnity Co., 178 Okl. 212, 62 P.2d 94, 97 (1936); State ex rel. Nagle v.

United States, 248 U.S. 405, 407, 39 S.Ct. 137 (1919)("Primarily we may say that the creation of offices and the assignment of their compensation is a legislative function... And we think the delegation of such function and the extent of its delegation must have clear expression or implication"); Burnap v. United States, 252 U.S. 512, 516, 40 S.Ct. 374, 376 (1920); Metcalf & Eddy v. Mitchell, 269 U.S. 514, 46 S.Ct. 172, 173 (1926); N.L.R.B. v. Coca-Cola Bottling Co. of Louisville, 350 U.S. 264, 269, 76 S.Ct. 383 (1956)("'Officers' normally means those who hold defined offices. It does not mean the boys in the back room or other agencies of invisible government, whether in politics or in the trade-union movement"); Crowley v. Southern Ry. Co., 139 F. 851, 853 (5th Cir. 1905); Adams v. Murphy, 165 F. 304 (8th Cir. 1908); Scully v.

Since I have reached the conclusion that the IRS has never been created by Congress, I am asking you to provide to me the citation of any statute which really did create the IRS.

Failing a response within that time period, I shall conclude that you cannot find any such statute and shall act accordingly.
