Readers of Startling Book on the Income Tax Continue to Receive Refunds


The IRS has tried for over three years to suppress the book. They have smeared its author, legal researcher Peter Hendrickson, and slyly misinterpret what he teaches about the law. But readers of “Cracking the Code ─ the Fascinating Truth about Taxation in America” have for years been receiving complete refunds of everything withheld from them as income taxes.

Hendrickson’s website,, currently displays Treasury Department refunds and credits totaling over $1,475,000.00. The website also shows “zero-balance” account transcripts and Notices of Deficiency with reader responses and subsequent IRS admissions of error as well as hundreds of other documents that confirm the accuracy of his book.

“Cracking the Code” explains how the income tax has a much more limited application than most Americans believe. It shows exactly how tax agencies exploit the mind-numbing complexity of the “code” and reveals how to be sure to pay only the taxes you owe.

Hendrickson makes it clear that the income tax isn’t a tax on the money we commonly call “income,” but a tax on certain specific, federally related activities. Money is only the measure of the tax. The tax does not fall on the receipt of money in general but only on money produced by special taxable activities.

The income tax simply does not apply to most common occupations, earnings and investments. Unfortunately, semantic quirks, lack of clarity and the sheer bulk of the “tax code” conspire to make earnings which are not taxable appear to be among those that are. “Cracking the Code” (CtC) reveals how the law works and how to obey it. Most people who read CtC come to realize the work they do is not subject to the income tax. Hendrickson offers clear legal evidence to prove his case.

The IRS continues to try to suppress Hendrickson’s book. At the top of its annual ‘Dirty Dozen’ list of “tax schemes” the agency has put a carefully inaccurate description of how CtC readers correctly file returns. The IRS maintains this crafty deception even while issuing complete refunds to those who use information found in “Cracking the Code” to file accurate returns showing they own no tax.

Since publishing “Cracking the Code” Hendrickson has been the target of three punitive IRS legal attacks, each of which quickly collapsed in the courts.

While IRS disinformation floods the internet, the media and the in-boxes of conventional “tax professionals,” the hard evidence ─ in the form of complete, undisputed refunds ─ is entirely on the side of the eye-opening revelations in Hendrickson’s “Cracking the Code ─ the Fascinating Truth about Taxation in America.”
