  5. Tax Form Attachment, Form #04.201:  Attach this to all standard IRS forms you submit to prevent false presumptions that prejudice your constitutional rights

  6. Office of Management and Budget (OMB) control numbers and corresponding regulations for several important IRS forms.  The second column in the table lists the OMB Control Number for each form.  If you want to know the purpose and proper use of any of the forms listed, we recommend that you download PDF IRS Pub 676, which is listed in the section below.  WARNING:  This is a large file!  Pub 676, by the way, is an old document dated 12/91.  A newer version of that document is now published as PDF IRS Document 7130, which you can order FREE from the IRS at: 800-829-3676.
    http://famguardian.org/TaxFreedom/Forms/IRS/OMBFormInfo.htm
  7. Original or standard IRS forms (U.S. Government Printing Office Bookstore).  Includes both historical and current forms:
    Tax Products CD-ROM, Stock #648-207-00004-2

The list of forms below contains two columns:  The ORIGINAL column and the AMENDED column.  The ORIGINAL column contains:

  1. A link to the form that is identical to the one you would download directly off the IRS website. 
  2. A link (in some cases) to the editable Microsoft Word version of the ORIGINAL IRS form if you want to customize it yourself. This editable Word version was produced with Scansoft PDF Converter Professional.  

The AMENDED column contains a form that has been modified to remove all injurious and false presumptions of the readers and recipients as follows:

  1. All indications of liability such as the word "owe" are replaced with "pay illegally under protest and duress".
  2. Uses of the word "taxpayer"  are replaced with "nontaxpayer"
  3. Uses of the phrase "U.S. citizen" is replaced with "national but not citizen pursuant to 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(21) and 8 U.S.C. 1452".
  4. Any place the form says "in United States" is replaced with "outside United States"
  5. If the only option presented for natural persons is "individual", then an additional option is added for "Transient foreigner".
  6. Perjury statements are modified as follows:
    • Replace "penalty of perjury" with "penalty of perjury from without the United States under 28 U.S.C. 1746(1)"
    • Indicate the existence of duress
    • Indicate "All rights reserved without prejudice, UCC 1-308 and its predecessor UCC 1-207"
  7. Places where it asks you what country you live in have the phrase "(state)" after them.
  8. References to "beneficial owner" are replaced with "nonresident alien not engaged in a trade or business" so as not to incriminate yourself or violate the Fifth Amendment
  9. The phrase "permanent address", which means "domicile", is filled in with the phrase "None (no domicile)".  Click here to read our article on domicile to learn why this change was made.

Wherever possible, you should use the AMENDED form instead of the ORIGINAL form because if you don't, you will needlessly prejudice your rights in court and encourage PDF false presumptions about your true status.  We also note that government forms should NEVER be altered with the intent of deceiving anyone or committing fraud or perjury.  Perjury is a criminal offense in violation of 18 U.S.C. 1001 and 18 U.S.C. 1542 that we do not condone or tolerate.  Instead, the purpose of using the Amended form is to PREVENT perjury on government forms.  Most government forms require a perjury statement and if they are false or could be misconstrued as false by an ignorant or presumptuous reader, then this could unnecessarily imperil the liberties of the submitter.  If the IRS tries to penalize you for altering forms, then we suggest using the standard IRS form and using the following excellent attachment with all ORIGINAL IRS forms submitted in order to prevent prejudicing your rights or sovereignty or committing perjury under penalty of perjury in attempting to truthfully and unambiguously describe your legal status on government forms:

If you would like to modify existing IRS forms to create your own Amended or changed forms that more accurately and truthfully represent your status, then we recommend the following options:

  1. If you want to turn the PDF form into an editable Microsoft Word document that you can change to suit your needs and then print as a PDF, then we highly recommend the following:
    • Scansoft PDF Converter Professional- Creates PDFs like Acrobat and also will convert PDFs into editable Microsoft Word documents.  This program also has a slick feature called "FormTyper" that will take any PDF form and automatically turn it into a fillable Acrobat form.  EXCELLENT!
  2. If you have the original PDF off the government website and want to edit it DIRECTLY, the following products are recomended  in descending order of capability and value, where the first listed is the best but the most expensive:
    • Adobe Illustrator-Edits existing PDF forms but not useful for creating new forms.  Part of Adobe Creative Suite. Very good but expensive.
    • Adobe Livecycle Designer-Edits or designs forms in original PDF format.  Part of Adobe Creative Suite. Very good but expensive.  This product is REALLY cool because you can import an original IRS form and convert it so an editable form with fillable fields, then resave it looking better than the original!  Well worth the money.  You will need to buy a disk full of fonts to go with this so you can exactly replicate the look of the original form as an installed system font.  We recommend visiting Fonts.com to buy the Helvetica Neue font packs, which is what the IRS uses on all their forms.
    • Nitro PDF-$99.  Edit PDF's directly, print them from any application, created or edit forms.  Directly edit text and graphics.  Simple, powerful, attractive interface.  Versatile and RELIABLE.  THE BEST OF THE BUNCH!  You got to get this program!
    • Foxit Software PDF Editor-mainly for text editing but decent.  $99.  Does not do picture editing.  Not WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) because actual PDF in Acrobat does not look exactly the same as the program displays it.  Unlike Scansoft PDF Converter Professional, you can add text to make it part of the document, instead of just a comment.
    • Zeon Docucom  PDF Gold-PDF editing and creation.
    • Scansoft PDF Converter Professional-feature rich and much cheaper than Adobe Acrobat.  Does not allow add any kind of text other than comments, and this limits usefulness in modifying IRS forms.  $99.  Creates PDFs like Acrobat and also will convert PDFs into editable Microsoft Word documents.  The other options listed here cannot do this.
    • CAD-KAS PDF Editor-$79.  Does graphics and picture and text editing.  The copyright license mechanism is very restrictive and you have to buy a license for each machine you install on.  This program is buggy and corrupts some PDF files.  Watch out!
  3. You can reuse any of the MS Word formatted versions of most of the common IRS forms listed below.  These appear in editable format for your reuse.
  4. If you are starting with a raster scanned PDF image and want to edit the form, the following two graphics editing products can edit bitmapped PDF forms quite well:
  5. If you want to design your own substitute forms, the following products are listed in descending order of their usefulness and quality:
    • Adobe Livecycle Designer-Designs forms in original PDF format.  Part of Adobe Creative Suite. Very good but expensive.  This product is REALLY cool because you can import an original IRS form and convert it so an editable form with fillable fields, then resave it looking better than the original!  Well worth the money.  You will need to buy a disk full of fonts to go with this so you can exactly replicate the look of the original form as an installed system font.  We recommend visiting Fonts.com to buy the Helvetica Neue font packs, which is what the IRS uses on all their forms.
    • Amgraf Oneform Designer Plus-the best and most versatile
    • Scansoft Omniform-used on older IRS forms
  6. If you do produce a new or amended tax form, please kindly post it to our forums as an attachment for reuse by others.  This will save lots of trouble and time for others.  Post it in the "New Research Submittal" area of the Family Guardian forums and we will repost it for others reuse. You will need to register to obtain an account in order to post to our forums.

For those of you who are concerned about the legality of modifying IRS forms, see section 20.2 of our free PDF Federal and State Tax Withholding Options for Private Employers book.
