About This Legislation:
On March 18, 2002, the United Nations met in Mexico for the purpose of developing a global tax and a global I.R.S. The global tax would cost American citizens $400 billion annually. The global I.R.S. would keep tabs on every American citizen's financial affairs. The Prohibition on United Nations Taxation Act, H.R. 1017 says "NO" to this global tax and collection scheme. It would prohibit the United States from paying any voluntary or assessed contributions to the United Nations (U.N.) or any of its agencies if the U.N.: (1) attempts to impose a tax on any U.S. person; or (2) borrows funds from the International Bank for Reconstruction and Development (World Bank), International Monetary Fund, or any other similar or regional international financial institution.
H.R. 1017 would prohibit the United States from paying any voluntary or assessed contributions to the U.N. or any of its agencies, including the U.N. Development Program, unless the president of the United States certifies to the Congress 15 days in advance of such payment that the U.N. or such agency is not engaged in any effort to develop or promote any taxation proposals in order to raise revenue.
