Re: what if his password was
Wow talk about desperate attempts to go for a straw man. No, no, no, and no. A password is just a password not a confession.
other than name, date of birth, and address
You seem to be suffering from some perverted combination of POW and law frameworks. The rules don't work that way. The place where thugs usually fall down is that once you speak on any of it, you are required to be truthful and answer all subsequent inquiries. You may be able to temporarily suspend an investigation by pleading the 5th, but once on the stand it's the 5th or everything.
A criminal record NEVER constitutes probable cause.
No, you're the one who has this wrong. Once convicted the police, the prison warden, even the guard can search [your] car, search your] home, etc etc, every day for the rest of [the term of your conviction].
No, you are the one who is wrong. Once you have been convicted you lose almost all civil protection until the term of your conviction is expired.
Nobody on this planet is legally required to provide evidence...
No, YOU are dead wrong. You are not required to testify against yourself. You can be compelled to produce evidence. That's the whole point of a search warrant: it forces you to produce evidence against yourself. This is so basic it actually gives me a headache.
The only reason the IRS can get away with this is because filing an income tax return is officially declared a voluntary act, not compulsory.
The code I comply with reads:
Sec. 6012. Persons required to make returns of income
TITLE 26, Subtitle F, CHAPTER 61, Subchapter A, PART II, Subpart B, Sec. 6012.
(a) General rule
Returns with respect to income taxes under subtitle A shall be made by the following:
(1) (A) Every individual having for the taxable year gross income which equals or exceeds the exemption amount, except that a return shall not be required of an individual -
That sounds pretty mandatory to me.
Or perhaps you'll find this bit more convincing:
What if you fail to file?
The IRS may file what is known as a substitute return for you. However, as you well know, the IRS will not be looking to save you any money. In fact, a substitute return will not include any of the standard deductions your accountant would typically include in your return. Case in point, a substitute return only allows one exemption: single or married filing separate, so you end up with higher tax liability than if you would have just filed.
You really need to stop hanging out with Truthers, Birthers, and Birchers. It rots the brain.
