Snipes pays no tax

So I just read about how Wesley Snipes will not be jailed for tax fraud any time soon.  According to an article, the famous movie star can stay out of jail for tax-evasion and tax fraud due to the tax protest that “the IRS’s own code meant no citizen had to pay taxes on income earned in this country, and the agency had no legal authority to collect wages anyway, because it is not a proper government entity.”  I find that very interesting to say the least.

Can an American citizen actually do that?  I have to look into this some more because this is very interesting and makes me wondering.  I doubt however that not paying for taxes and committing tax-evasion can easily get you in jail.  For now on pay your damn taxes.
