Answer:

Not at all. Constitutional arguments against the tax laws are routinely struck down by U.S. federal courts. Typical scams involve multiple family trusts, limited partnerships, and offshore banks. While these schemes can confuse and slow down the IRS, they are bogus, period. Would a federal judge -- whom you will appear before if you are prosecuted for tax evasion and whose salary comes from the federal government -- ever be likely to uphold one of these schemes? We think not.
