DT - Federal Income Taxes

I have long followed Larken Rose and found his arguments and presentations compelling. He was recently charged with and even more recently convicted on 5 counts including 'wilfull failure to file' income taxes.

I am unsure how someone who believes they don't owe taxes can be found guilty of 'wilfull failure to file', when 'wilfull' means intentionally not filing when you know you have to. Larken believes the law (and has dedicated tremendous resources trying to elucidate his point) excludes what most other people believe to be 'taxable income'.

Hmmm. Not really sure where he's going to go from here (aside from the obvious appeals), but I hope he manages to continue his fight for a fair hearing of his beliefs.
