These special-editions Quatloos commemorates those who have
made a name for themselves in their particular business endeavors.
Our 100Q Woopoo chips commemorate infamous tax
scam artists. Eddie Kahn of American Rights Litigators represents
the Hee-Haw contingent of the tax protestor movement. Without any doubt,
the most stupid of all the professional tax protesters. Mr. Kahn's
arguments are so utterly juvenile and worthless as to barely worth
the space I am using to type this sentence. ~ Taxes.com
Eddie caters to the dumbest of the dumb, and
his theories for not paying taxes are thus the dumbest of the dumb. Eddie has
claimed variously that he cant find the Form 1040, that the IRS was not
created by Congress and apparently just materialized out of the blue, that the
IRS doesnt have the power to collect taxes, that the United States doesnt
actually include the states, but is actually limited to the District of Columbia,
that all the money collected from taxes goes to the International Monetary Fund
(Eddie doesnt say who pays for our aircraft carriers, but what the hey),
and that so long as keep out of the Social Security Program that youll
never have to file taxes. All of these theories have lost in court, see Tax
Protestor Dummies. It seems that if somebody has tried a theory, lost, and
then gone to jail that Eddie will then take it and advocate it as gospel.
But dont take Eddies hick approach
to mean that hes not an innovator. Eddie has come up with the concept
of the Nonenforcement Pocket Commissions (whatever the heck those
are) to justify saying No! when the IRS comes acollecting.
Just tell dem Revenuers that you know all about Nonenforcement Pocket
Commissions from Eddie, and the IRS agents will get a sad look on their
face and just turn and go away. Uh-huh, yeah, uh Anybody want to buy
some oceanfront property in Albuquerque from us?
But wait! Eddie claims expertise not only in
U.S. taxation, but also in taxation of Australia, New Zealand, and Canada.
Guess What? According to Eddie youre not liable for taxes in those countries
either! Good golly Ms. Molly, what will Eddie come up with next?
Where does Eddie make his money? Like the other
tax scammers, Eddie sells seminars and the typical tax protestor junk. A typical
Eddie Kahn flyer is attached.

Treasury agents raid office in Mount
A lawsuit said a ministry sells tax
programs showing how to hide income.
Eddie Kahn's Office Raided by U.S.
By Martin E. Comas | Sentinel Staff Writer
Posted February 17, 2004
MOUNT DORA -- Federal agents with the U.S.
Treasury Department have searched a second-story office suite at 440 S. Donnelly
St., carrying out boxes filled with documents and computer equipment, Mount
Dora police said Monday.
Shop owners in the area said the office is
run by Guiding Light of God Ministries, headed by Eddie Kahn and his wife,
Kathleen, of Sorrento.
Because of Monday's federal holiday, federal
officials were unavailable for comment.
In December, the Justice Department filed a
lawsuit against the couple and several others, saying the group has been selling
fraudulent tax programs through the ministry, showing customers how to hide
income and assets to avoid paying federal taxes and how to obstruct IRS investigations.
The group, according to the lawsuit, also sold
counterfeit checks to
pay taxes, plus harassing letters to the IRS. Federal investigators estimated
11 checks totaling more than $2.2 million were sold.
Last August, Kahn transformed his business,
called American Rights Litigators, into the Guiding Light of God Ministries.
The Justice Department said the ministry was a business, indistinguishable
except in name from American Rights Litigators. The organization, according
to the suit, is also led by Milton Hargraves Baxley II, a lawyer in Gainesville,
and Bryan Malatesta, a certified public accountant in Cleburne, Texas.
The Kahns did not return phone calls Monday.
According to his Web site, Eddie Kahn says
he does not operate a business, but a Christian ministry, described as a corporation
with more than 4,000 clients. His Web site stated that the IRS is not a lawful
organization and that taxes do not finance the U.S. government, but are diverted
to the International Monetary Fund.
On Monday, a receptionist at the Mount Dora
office would not comment on the lawsuit or on the ministry.
Thurston Bell says Eddie Kahn is a
Notice of Academic Deficiency
There just seems to be an endless number of
people out here on the internet, who, without credentials, positive accomplishments,
or evidence of prior experience or knowledge of their work on the Internet,
and who also believe that they have some argument "worthy" of hearing
by the federal courts, will ask that YOU send them some money. There are in
fact SO MANY of these people, that I could spend every day for the rest of
my life arguing against and exposing them. This will do nothing but serve
the wishes of the Treasury Department.
I have to learn to trust that individuals can
be responsible for themselves, can show prudence, and judge that which is
sent to them over the World Wide Web.
When it comes to IRS lawsuits, I can only share
a few points of certainty regarding the issues of lawsuits.
A: The Federal Courts do NOT want to rule
in YOUR favor because;
B: No Federal Judge wants to be the Federal
Judge who collapses the House of Cards known as the Economic Stabilization
C: The Government and the Judge will use
Rule 12(b)(6) to throw your case out at the drop of a hat. That rule is:
Failure to state a claim for which relief can be granted.
D: The Courts and the Government will look
for the weakest point of your argument and they will rule on that one and
ignore the rest of the issues.
So, if someone is sending an e-mail regarding
wanting money from you to help support a case where there is no specifically
damaged plaintiff and there are multiple arguments, I will not respond to
If you are seriously considering spreading
news of or financially supporting the ideas of such people who have discovered
the Internet as a means of conning people out of money, instead of sending
me their e-mail please write back to them and ask them what their credentials
are, what results have they had, what is their area of expertise and experience,
and do they have references from anyone that you might hold in esteem.
This how the Establishments of Academia control
discussions and discourse. (References are important.) And believe me folks,
if someone out there was doing something that you needed to know about, I
would have told you already. And if they don't have the guts to come to me
directly and seek counsel with people like me who have results, they certainly
are NOT worth your time and effort.

NITE has VERY strict standards about following
the letter of the Law. The people and organizations listed below use arguments
that the courts have already deemed frivolous, and make all sorts of claims
with no results to show for themselves. While some have truth mixed in with
lies, there is just enough truth to get people tangled into their web. Some
of these people are academic plagiarists who have been using NITE's work product
and claiming it as their own and / or intermingling our argument with frivolous
res judicata patriot arguments. Many of these people / organizations are networked
(i.e. working together). A few of them are SHAM trust salesmen / women. Therefore,
we can truthfully say that from our experience and first hand knowledge, the
following people are "Snake Oil" peddlers and / or CON-men/women

People who do not seem to understand have not seen as many people as Mr. Bell
has seen, get hurt. They lose their property, jobs, paychecks, and / or families.
They obviously do not have the discernment to understand how vitally important
this issue is, and how we MUST stay on point or lose.
There is no room for those who claim it is
their 1st Amendment Right for supporting people who are espousing such res
judicata arguments. The courts and the Kotmair case made it clear. Guilt by
association is NOW supported by CASE LAW.

TDD (202) 514-1888
JUSTICE DEPARTMENT FILES SUIT TO
ALLEGED NATIONWIDE TAX SCAM
Florida Man Sells Counterfeit Checks and Other
With Help from Florida Lawyer and Texas Accountant
WASHINGTON, D.C. - The Justice Department today
announced that it has filed a lawsuit asking a federal court to stop several
alleged tax scams. According to court papers filed in the case, the scams
include selling counterfeit checks, setting up sham corporations to help customers
hide income and assets, and helping customers obstruct Internal Revenue Service
investigations and collections. The civil injunction case, filed in the U.S.
District Court for the Middle District of Florida, is part of the Justice
Department’s nationwide crackdown on promoters who sell fraudulent tax
advice and help customers evade taxes.
The suit names as defendants Eddie and Kathleen
(“Kookie”) Kahn of Sorrento, Florida; their businesses Milton
Hargraves Baxley II, a lawyer from Gainesville, Florida; David Stephen Lokietz
of Mt. Dora, Florida and Bryan Malatesta, a certified public accountant in
Cleburne, Texas. Eddie Kahn’s businesses - American Rights Litigators,
Guiding Light of God Ministries and Eddie Kahn and Associates – are
also named as defendants.
“Tax scam promoters cheat the
federal government and all law-abiding Americans when they encourage and enable
others to violate the tax laws,” said Eileen J. O’Connor, Assistant
Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Tax Division. “They
also cheat their customers, who can expect to pay back taxes, interest and
penalties, as well as face criminal prosecution for tax evasion and for presenting
counterfeit documents. The Justice Department is committed to shutting down
tax evasion scams at their source.”
The complaint and other court papers filed
today allege that Eddie Kahn and two of his businesses sell counterfeit checks
and bonds for customers to send to the Internal Revenue Service. According
to the complaint, the federal government has thus far received bogus checks
totaling at least $2.2 million. Kahn also allegedly sells sham entities known
as “corporations sole,” falsely advising customers that their
income will become tax-exempt and their assets collection-proof if they use
a corporation sole, call themselves a “ministry,” and take a “vow
of poverty.” The government’s court papers also allege that Kahn
was convicted of federal tax crimes in 1985.
Court papers filed in an earlier injunction
case against Douglas Rosile, a Florida-based former accountant, showed that
Kahn sent customers to Rosile for preparation of tax returns making frivolous
claims that wages are not income. In June 2002, a federal court in Tampa,
Florida barred Rosile from preparing tax returns for others. Information about
the Rosile case and copies of the complaint and preliminary injunction papers
in that case are available at http://www.usdoj.gov/
opa/ pr/ 2002/March/02_tax_145.htm, as well as http://www.usdoj.gov/tax/02_tax_352.htm.
Court papers filed in today’s lawsuit
also allege that the defendant, in an effort to obstruct Internal Revenue
Service investigations of customers’ tax liabilities and thwart collection
actions, charge their customers $50 to send frivolous complaints against Internal
Revenue Service employees to the Treasury Department Inspector General. The
complaints are allegedly signed by the Florida lawyer (Baxley) and the Texas
accountant (Malatesta) and assert frivolous arguments challenging the Internal
Revenue Service’s authority to enforce the tax laws and make baseless
complaints against Internal Revenue Service employees. The government also
alleges the defendants have filed more than 1,500 of these frivolous complaints
against Internal Revenue Service employees with the Treasury Inspector General
for Tax Administration in an attempt to intimidate Internal Revenue Service
Finally, the complaint alleges that the Kahn’s
have marketed fraudulent tax schemes on the Internet and through seminars
nationwide, most recently in Newport News, Virginia; Dania Beach, Florida;
New Cumberland, Pennsylvania; Portland, Oregon and Denver, Colorado. The government
filing says that the Internal Revenue Service has identified American Rights
Litigators and Guiding Light of God Ministries customers across the country.
The Justice Department has sought and obtained
injunctions recently against a number of tax-scam promoters. More information
about these cases is available on the Justice Department website at www.usdoj.gov/tax/taxpress2003.htm.

involving alleged sham “corporations sole” can be found at: http://www.usdoj.gov/tax/03_tax_554.htm.
