Is it against the law to raise your federal tax exemptions?
I don't know if this has changed but I have generally claimed more exemptions on my withholding than on my tax return because I have lots of deductions and still get money back. No one has ever said this was illegal. What is illegal is claiming false deductions on your tax RETURN or knowingly underpaying your taxes. Don't do that! Answer Absolutely legal. The exemptions simply tell you how much you w ant to withhold. Put 1,000 there if you want the lowest amount taken out possible. However, you must pay in either 90% of your total tax due, or 100% of the previous years tax amount.

I guess you could if you were....but I am unfamiliar with any part of the tax law that would considered any person as tax exempt! Certainly some (actually many) don't pay tax,… but that isn't because they are exempt but because they they didn't earn enough net "taxable income" (even if they made a lot of money). The withholding rules consider this and the income that shouldn't be taxed wouldn't have to have any income withheld, which is all done by properly completing the W-4 or W-9. Obviously, you would still have to file and report and show that your income wasn't of the type that is taxable, even if you don't have to pay. And if your saying this as part of one of the tax protester type arguments that try and use thoughts like these in their arguments, be aware...those are all not only absurd and garbage, proven incorrect at every level by every court....the Courts have gotten so tired of addressing the stupidity of those bringing them that it is, not just dismissed as frivalous (and perhaps considered worse) the law a TRIPLE penalty is made against anyone doing so...as well as other sanctions. No, your not going to find some way to outsmart all those that came before, and are doing so now, and and make yourself not have to pay by some proclamation or such. If such a "loophole" existed, what do you think, a law closing it would take 5 minutes to pass? Well, maybe less! REALLY.
Federal exemption is the right to claim a qualifying minor for the child tax credit and child exemption against your income. It may also qualify you for the Earned Income Cred…it and Head of Household status, IF the child lived with you 51% of the year.
The deduction per exemption is $3,500 in 2008.
2008: $2 million; 2009: $3.5 million; 2010: no estate taxes, so not required; 2011 and thereafter: $1 million.
Well, it depends on their tax bracket which changes from person to person...but $750 is a good guess. Think you cost more than that?
Congress makes the tax laws and the POTUS can either sign it or Veto it.
You would pay taxes on Unrelated Business Income.
There is no such age. Even a newborn infant or a 100-year old senior citizen might need to file taxes.
Law. And of course superior court can't make a finding against the law to start......it must uphold it whether it agrees with it ir not...and normally matters concerning tax l…aw are handled in tax court.
what is odometer disclosure exempt by federal law?

Only if you qualify for 10 exemption's. Whether you are entitled to claim a certain number of allowances or exemption from withholding is subject to review by the IRS. Your …employer may be required to send a copy of this form to the IRS. Providing fraudulent information may subject you to penalties. The number of exemptions claimed, including no tax withheld, is actually part of your entire financial profile and tax payment requirement, and includes all those things like if your married and file jointly, if and how many children you may have, medical deductions, mortgage interest, etc. WHAT YOU HAVE WITHHELD DOES NOT CHANGE THE AMOUNT OF TAX YOU WILL PAY AT ALL. HAVING TOO MUCH WITHHELD WILL BE REFUNDED UPON FILING YOUR RETURN, TOO LITTLE AND YOU WILL HAVE TO PAY THE ADDITIONAL PLUS PENALTY AND INTEREST, AND BE SUBJECT TO ADDITIONAL SCRUTINY.

No . The President's and federal judges' salaries were only exempt from income tax between 1920 and 1939, under the theory that the tax was unconstitutional because it "dimini…shed" their salary, which is prohibited under Article III. When Congress passed the Public Salary Tax Act of 1939, it specifically required all federal employees to pay tax on their salaries. The US Supreme Court upheld the legislation as constitutional in O'Malley v. Woodroush, 307 US 277 (1939). Federal judges pay income tax on their salaries.
Your employer is required to withhold payroll taxes based on the W-4 you fill out and sign indicating how many allowances you are claiming plus any additional dollar amount yo…u want withheld or whether your are exempt from income tax withholding. You may complete a new W-4 any time your tax situation changes and you need to change your income tax withholdings. Once you submit the new W-4 to your employer, it should not take more than 1 payroll cycle for the employer to begin using the new allowances. You may also want to prepare a separate W-4-equivalent for your state if you are subject to state tax. For example, California's W-4-equivalent is Form DE 4. Your employer should not change your federal income tax withholding allowances without written notification from you (or the IRS, which is rare) to do so.
Yes, the Federal Government cannot be taxed by the states, however the States can be taxed by the Federal Government. Just like the State cannot be taxed by local municipaliti…es and Municipalities cannot be taxed by Townships.

According to the Constitution of the United States, the Presidentcannot write legislation, or impose taxes upon the people. Congressis where these powers lay and once passed b…y both Houses ofCongress the President can sign the legislation or veto it. Inrecent years, the President has been taking some of this power awayfrom Congress and issuing legislation through Executive Orders.Executive Orders is an allowed power given to the President to takeaction required immediately necessary due to items such as Acts ofWar or Natural Disasters when Congress is not in session or couldnot be gathered quick enough to take action. This was done at atime when it took weeks to cross the country but has been taken asan act to bypass Congress when the action would no pass throughCongress using the Constitutional methods.
