For quite some time Pete has been fabricating the illusion that his book Cracking the Code is viable remedy by encouraging people to post their Refund Checks and when they get into trouble and want their testimony removed, banishing them from the Website (Lost Horizons). Pete is now in prison and nobody will let me onto Lost Horizons to discuss the problems people have there. - Mainly the problem is that the IRS often bills back for the Zero Income Return strategy in CtC. Often times with the $5K fine.
People are helpless to fight the Frivolous Return accusation because all that Pete offers are tired old interpretations of Title 26 - which is not postive law. None of these interpretations may be brought up in tax court. If an attorney tries to bring any of them up, he will be sanctioned without warning; that is how long they all have been failing and failing miserably.
My proposition is that once one begins to redeem lawful money, that they can apply remedy retroactively by one or both methods.
1) Stand on the accusation of Fraud by Omission. That is that the contract demanding Information and Self-Assessment (1040 Form) is vitiated by that fraud and that our civics teachers, parents and bank tellers are not to blame for the fraud, but rather are victims of the same fraud. Which is to say, in either method Lost Horizon victims facing having to repay Refunds and $5K penalties too, who cannot should be looking seriously into applying remedy. Not just to apply remedy, but to cause Setoff and get the IRS off their backs.
2) Stand on being a peaceful inhabitant. There has been some discussion here about that - being a conduit and allowing the State (by militant occupation) own the assets, but give you the usage. This involves volunteering to help the trustee settle up the account, after establishing that you know of the remedy and are consistently applying it. There is some evidence that this will "Satisfy" the IRS or DoR agent and cause setoff even for tax years prior to when the suitor began to redeem lawful money.
