Is There Any Law Requiring the Average American Citizen to Pay Income Tax?

I finally watched From Freedom to Fascism, made by the producer of movies such as Trading Places, Wise Guys, and The Rose.

The film includes interesting interviews with the former IRS Commissioner and chief IRS counsel, former IRS agents, and a juror on a tax evasion case.

I am interested in whether or not the claims made in the film regarding income tax are true. If you have expertise in income tax issues, please comment below.

I am also interested in whether Ron Paul’s view on income tax is right. Paul says that there may not be a legal duty for salaried employees to pay income tax, but since the government has force on its side, we will probably still get in trouble if we don’t pay our income tax.

What do you think?
