One minute world–renowned commodities trader Larry Williams was sitting in first class on a Qantas flight from South Africa to Australia. The next, Larry foundhimself in a lockup in Sydney fighting extradition to the United States on tax evasion charges. This is Larry′s story of the beliefs that took him inside the tax resistance movement and eventually to jail, and through which he has emerged still fighting what he sees as an unfair tax system but from a different angle.
From the Boston Tea Party to the Whiskey Rebellion, South Carolina′s near secession over the "Tariff of Abominations," to Amish resistance to the Social Security tax, tax protesting is as American as Smith & Wesson and apple pie. In Confessions of a Radical Tax Protestor,Larry Williams, futures trading superstar and bestselling author, offers a riveting account of his six–year battle with the IRS. A true David versus Goliath story, it recounts why the pugnacious Montanan went to war with the U.S. Department of the Treasury and how he succeeded where so many before him had failed. And he explains why, despite the victorious outcome, his was a Pyrrhic victory that nearly cost him everything a price he would gladly have forgone if only he knew then what he knows now.
