This document is NOT the same as the documents or process associated with the service formerly offered by independent third parties called the "Administrative Repudiation Process", and which was formerly mentioned on the SEDM website at but was never offered directly by SEDM.  This is our own free version of that process which we think is better. We have never and will never offer any of the information or processes for sale that appear on this website in any form.  We insist on doing this in order to maintain this entire website as "protected First Amendment speech".

Please do not call for help with the process of correcting government records to correctly reflect your citizenship status, because we can't give it.  However, if you find something in error with this document or have something important to add based on your own research, we would appreciate hearing about it so we can promptly fix it.  Also, be advised that the reason for using this document is not to avoid taxes, but to remove federal government jurisdiction over you because of errors in their records.  This subject is covered in more detail in Great IRS Hoax, section

This document is to be sent to either the Secretary of State of the United States, the Secretary of State of your State, and the Attorney General of the United States.  It:

  1. Establishes the equivalent of a legal, political, and commercial divorce from the United States.
  2. Establishes you in the records of the government as a "national" and a "state national" pursuant to 8 U.S.C. 1101(a)(21) and not a statutory "U.S. citizen" pursuant to 8 U.S.C. 1401.
  3. Establishes you as a "nonresident alien" not engaged in a "trade or business" as defined in 26 CFR 1.871-1(b)(ii).
  4. Establishes you as a "nontaxpayer" not subject to the Internal Revenue Code or the civil laws where you live.
  5. Requests help from the government eliminating all forms of unlawful duress and prejudicial presumption which might compel you to assume anything other than the above statuses.
  6. Creates presumptions in your favor that will be useful as a defense in court should the government ever attempt to prosecute you for a tax crime.
