Justice Peter Hall said the offenders had engaged in "deliberate, systematic and repeated acts of evasion" between April 2001 and June 2006.By what moral code have they acted illegitimately. The reason they went to such efforts is because they care about their money…so much so that they used their own money to pay for accounting and ‘evasion’ services. Whose money did the tax office use to hunt them down and to prosecute them? The taxpayers. The ATO is using taxpayers money to persecute taxpayers.
Justice Peter Hall: “The tax system relies heavily on the honesty and integrity of those who participate in it...This was a breach of the community's trust . . . The sentences are intended to show that all community members must contribute to the tax system according to their means”.No, the tax office does not rely on ‘trust’, it relies on fear of prosecution. So long as people remain fearful they will be stuck with tax liabilities. The reality is that the tax office cannot afford to place people in prison, nor to administer a ‘heavy’ bureaucracy. Instead they rely on ‘shock and awe’ tactics of high profile ‘lynchings’. But the problem with ‘high profile’ lynchings is that low profile people think they can get away with it, so you have to make advertised campaigns to say you are going after certain sectors. These judges and ATO officials have no integrity. They can no more identify a coherent theory of values from our legal tradition than you can. In fact, taxation is legal only as ‘statute law’. Extortion and theft are of course criminal offences under common law; which is a far more logical framework. In fact, the statutory legal system is actually for the most part a breach of the spirit of the law. How can you expect law to be ‘just’ if it entails mob imposition on minorities? It gives no objective mode of defence to people who object to taxation. If it did, then these people would use it.
