CHAIRMAN ECONOMIC & FINANCIAL CRIME COMMISSION
(EFCC) FOREIGN OPERATIONS DEPT,
Crazy, right? You would never do this in a million years, would you? Why would you give someone you don’t know or trust free access to your hard earned cash?
Well, you actually already have signed up for one of these scams:
Except as otherwise provided in this section, every employer making payment of wages shall deduct and withhold upon such wages a tax determined in accordance with tables or computational procedures prescribed by the Secretary. Any tables or procedures prescribed under this paragraph shall—
(A) apply with respect to the amount of wages paid during such periods as the Secretary may prescribe, and
(B) be in such form, and provide for such amounts to be deducted and withheld, as the Secretary determines to be most appropriate to carry out the purposes of this chapter and to reflect the provisions of chapter 1 applicable to such periods.
That’s the little US version of the Nigerian Bank Scam we affectionately call the Current Tax Payment Act of 1943 – or as we tea party type geeks call it, 26 USC § 3402.
They also guarantee your safety and wish you the best of luck.
We have to repeal this act and make withholding illegal. Every taxpayer, even the working poor, needs to know what government costs and if you don’t actually pay it, you simply don’t know. If you have a bank draft set up for any of your recurring bills, do you think about it each month?
If you don’t want to deal with it, you can set up a draft out of your bank account into a savings account and pay the tax from there but don’t hand your power to the government without a fight…
Why are we so complacent about money that we earn being taken from us before we even see it? You wouldn’t be happy about it if it was going to Mr. Ibrahim Lamorde, Chairman of the Nigerian Economic & Financial Crime Commission,now would you?
We will never control a government that we do not have the ability to say “no” to…and today, we legally can’t.
