Jay,
While I don't know for sure, I would be shocked if John Rizzo was paying his income taxes. It would be interesting to see if this is true. Is there a way?

Here's what U.S. law enforcement has a hard time with: Promoters who sell people bogus materials telling them all sorts of wrong reasons why they shouldn't pay their taxes, all the while paying their own income taxes on the moneys earned. So, law enforcement can't get these crooks for tax evasion, and the crooks stand behind the 1st Amendment for what they publish.

Don't think for an instance that these people aren't being watched closely by IRS-CID for a slip-up. The Service gave Lynne Meredith a very long leash, and she hung herself well -- odds are that she will die in prison. Ditto for Bell. The Rizzo/Bannister types will all see their day, although you may have to be very patient to see it.

Here is an email that was sent recently to former IGP members from John Rizzo. In my opinion this individual has been one of the worst frauds in the entire organization. On top of that, he is about as arrogant as they come. No one talks about him or tries to expose him. He promotes his own take on why the government is evil and no one has to pay income tax. He claims at times that he was a former judge (which is a lie). He has made millions selling his millenium package to gullible IGP participants. I would be interested to know Jay/David's take on why no one seems to take notice of him? Unlike most poor tax protesters, he is rich at the expense of others. Here is the email:



YOU ARE INVITED

to visit our web site at www.millenniumpublishing.org. Tired of paying
income tax? See what others have done with success. Register for the
members only area free of charge and listen to our clients actually
delivering their materials to the IRS with no problems. Listen to the

Dont miss out on the latest updates and information.

Did you know you can make money with M2k.

Have you heard that John & Carol Rizzo beat the U.S. Customs to the
tune of $301,000.00. Have you heard that U.S. Customs after investigation
decided that the funds from the purchase of Millennium 2000 Reliance
Defense programs constituted funds from a legitimate source and returned
the money to them.

Have you heard that the U.S. Treasury issued the Rizzo's a check in the
amount of $73,100.00 as part of the funds returned to the Rizzo's. What
does that say about the Millennium Program. You decide!!!!!! Do you
think the US. Treas would have sent his check to the Rizzo's if they owed
any tax.

Ask the other programs out there to prove their programs work and show
you the check they got from the Govt. Bet they can't.

I would love to answer your questions?

I was a judge in Arizona and the dates were february 27, 1987 to June 1990. I have the documents to back that up just in case anyone would be interested in the truth here. No I am not currently licensed to practice before the Us Tax Court and have no need to be. Yes I did appear at other seminars with others preaching tax things. I spoke on Due Diligence and named several tax programs that did not work and was not asked back to speak again.

Do I file my own income taxes. I will not answer that in this forum but will be willing to file a form 4506 with the IRS to disclose that information to you if you will be so kind as to state a specific purpose for your wanting the information and the intended use of the information.

Re. "You can't argue with 17 years of success along with recent endorsements by the U.S. Customs and U.S. Treasury."

Are you honestly stupid enough to believe that U.S. Customs and U.S. Treasury "endorse" a scheme not to pay income taxes?

The answer is almost certainly "yes" if you are also stupid enough to believe that none of us is obligated to pay income taxes.

And this goes to the heart of the matter, i.e. stupidity.

It is sad the number of people who are stupid enough to believe what any fool tells them, no matter how ridiculous it is.

Perhaps Mr. Marchant can expand on how his last post dis-proves the M2K program. Isn't that all that really matters here?

You can't argue with 17 years of success along with recent endorsements by the U.S. Customs and U.S. Treasury.

Okay, "Judge" --

WHERE would you a judge, and what dates?

ARE you currently licensed to practice before the U.S. Tax Court?

DID you ever appear at seminars with other known tax scammers, i.e., Lynne Meredith?

DO you file your own income taxes?

I am outraged that this person would post such lies about me on this message board. The only reason I claim to have been a Judge is becasue in fact I was one and anyone who wants that proof can e-mail me. Anyone who wants to verify the information I put out about beating Customs can e-mail me I will be happy to provide it. I also did not make millions of dollars with m2k packages. In fact I gave more to recognized charities in the last few years than most people make a year. I had money long before IGP ever put me on a stage. Am i Arrogant you bet. You have to be arrogant when delaing with the IRS. I have saved countless people from the abuse of the IRS. Old ladys who are having thier Social Security taken from them. Another genetleman who the IRS was taking his house owing $362,000.00 and ended up paying about $1500.00. Turns out the IRS was wrong. This person has no idea who I am and has no right to Judge me at all. Anyone out there who wants to know the truth about me, what I am about and how I operate is invited to e-mail me. It wont even cost you a dime. Now for bakersmanner@yahoo.com. I have written and asked that they also do there homework and retract the lies they have put here otherwise the matter will be sent to our attorneys. We will see if they respond.

No, because of strict laws relating the privacy of individual tax returns it would be just about impossible to discover whether or not he is filing without filing a lawsuit against him.

Nonetheless, in some cases it has come out that the scammers were filing their taxes, and in others -- as was the case with Bannister -- he openly admitted filing his income taxes in a 20/20 interview. I've had acquaintances in the Service tell me that most of the tax scammers do file their returns, which is why it is hard to get at them.

Then, on the other hand, you occasionally have the Lynne Meredith types who are dumb enough to believe their own propoganda and don't file taxes. See http://www.quatloos.com/lynne_meredith_indicted_for_tax_fraud.htm and particularly pay attention to how much money Lynne made selling the tax protestor junk -- Worth a few years in Club Fed maybe?

John,

1) No one has ever disputed your possession of Custom Documents. The fact that you have them proves nothing about income taxes.

2) You talk about having been a judge. What kind of judge were you? So far you haven't given any proof. Also, let's suppose you were a judge at one point. Why did you stand on stage at IGP seminars claiming to be "Judge John Rizzo"? Isn't this misleading at best and a total lie at worst? Certainly you were NEVER a judge during your tenure at Global - correct?

3) You used to work with Bill Benson, who spent time in jail for his anti-income tax work. You also worked with LeMar Hardy who is a complete crook. This, in addition to all of David's posts which are ALL about you (in all of these states: CA, NV, AZ) make me wonder why people do business with you. I suppose there are still a lot of easily misled, gullible people in the world.

Here's some more background on John Rizzo, taken from the Nevada Secretary of State web-site at http://sos.state.nv.us/securities/enf_act.htm#kady.


Kady Productions / John and Carol Rizzo -

Criminal charges were filed against John and Carol Rizzo on June 25, 1996. The Rizzo's were charged with 2 counts of securities fraud, 2 counts of obtaining money under false pretenses and 1 count of money laundering. The criminal complaint alleged that the Rizzo's bilked a Nevada resident out of $10,000 by representing that they had a contract to develop a musical show at the Tropicana Hotel and Casino, when in fact, no such contract existed. The complaint also alleged that most of the investor's funds were used for the Rizzo's personal expenses.

The Rizzos made full restitution to the victim in November 1999, and have reimbursed the State for investigative costs. The office of the Nevada Attorney General has dropped all charges against the Rizzos, and the Rizzos have moved from the State of Nevada.

Mr. Marchant already knows the answer to this one as I have told him several times. I have also offered him the proof to back up my backround, my being a judge and many other things to disprove what has been posted on his web site. As can be seen he chooses instead to continue to post false information aboout me and will pay the price. Anyone seeking the truth about me is more than welcome to contact me directly for copies of that documented proof. My e-mail address is posted. Mr Marchant will be given 24 hours to remove this false information. I have already turned this matter over to our attorneys as this is not the first time I have seen this information come out. Amazing how rumors spread around. Mr. Marchant is the self proclaimed judge and jury for everything out there I would personally like to see his backround and what his expertise it. I guess that will happen when when we see him in court. Going back to the first post where people said I was arrogant. You bet I am when I have to deal with irresoponsible people who post things without having all the facts first. These irresponsibile people must pay for their conduct

Dear Mr. Rizzo,

The John J. Rizzo who was subject to IRS actions in Las Vegas from 1992 to 1998 has the social security number of 353-44-9789, date of birth June, 1951 and a spouse called Carol Rizzo.

Are you denying on this forum that this is your social security number, date of birth and that Carol Rizzo is not or has ever been your spouse.

You have just sent me an email claiming that you do not live in Las Vegas so this can't be you but, at 16thamendment.com, it states about you that "he has hosted his own radio talk show in Las Vegas, Nevada from 1996 to 1998". So, you were clearly in Las Vegas at the time of at least some of the actions.

Additionally, one of the addresses linked to the John Rizzo who was subject to IRS actions is PO Box 3378, Freedom, California, which is the same address used by you at your web-site at www.judgerizzo.com. (By the way, shouldn't your domain name be 'formerjudgerizoo'?)

If this information does not relate to you and it is a mistake, please answer my questions and clear it up.

I would be happy to explain it . Further investigation if done correctly by Dave would have revealed that this person is not me and that these items actually belong to someone else not me. As usual Dave only does a superficial search then posts things without having any proof of what he is posting and fails to even verify it is the same person. Dave is bitting off more than he can chew here.

Let's try it again:

WHERE were you a judge, i.e., in WHAT COURT including WHAT TYPE OF COURT IT WAS? For all we know, you were some type of small claims judge who never went to law school and doesn't even have a law degree.

HOW do you represent people on tax matters if you are not admitted to the U.S. Tax Court? WHAT entitles you to give advice and counsel on tax matters, i.e., do you have a law or CPA license?

IF you are not filing tax reports, why don't you simply ADMIT that instead of typing a bunch of scam babble. Certainly, the IRS either knows or doesn't know whether you are filing your returns, so you're not disclosing anything new to them.

Isn't the truth that you ARE filing your tax returns, while in the same breath advocating to others that they should not do so? And if this doesn't make you a two-bit tax scammer, then what does?

I have offered on numerous occassions to prodcue them but have yet to recieve a request for them from anyone reading this message board. I am not making this claim the Customs people said it in their decision. It is a plain as the nose on your face. Maybe you should wake up and smell the truth.

Here's an interesting one:

At John Rizzo's own web-site at www.judgerizzo.com, it states, inter alia, that "I moved to Nevada in 1989 and opened an office that provided research to attorneys and the general public in order fo them to have the gray areas defined and to be sucessful in winning theri cases".

However, in emails to me he indicates that he has not lived in Las Vegas, e.g. "... he did not live in Nevada as they claimed and neither did we" and "By all admissions I did visit Las Vegas during that time but I think we all go to Vegas for one reason or another. In fact I was just there last week does that mean I reside there."

The last refuge of a scammer -- threaten to get an attorney to sue for libel & slander. Apparently, the good "judge" doesn't know that substantial truth is an absolute defense.

And what is that substantial truth? The TRUTH is that "Judge" Rizzo is a "Judge" only in the most minimalist sense: He was a small claims "judge" in Arizona handling mostly traffic tickets, according to http://www.johnrizzo.com [see below]. Here are some facts about "Judge" Rizzo:

1) Formal legal education: None.

2) Legal degrees held: None.

3) Formal tax education: None.

4) Professional tax experience: None.

5) Jurisdictions in which he is admitted to practice, including the U.S. Tax Court: None.

6) Federal tax matters handled by Arizona small claims judges: None.

These are "just the facts, jack". What you have is an uneducated boob with no real tax training or experience going around the country acting like because he was a "judge", he ought to know something about federal income taxation. This, of course, is fraudulent since he has no formal education or training regarding federal taxation, and the court in which he was a "judge" didn't even hear federal tax disputes.

Hell, I hope he does try to sue. The deposition of this fraud artist would be priceless.

After high school I joined the Air Force and served in the military police, followed by a stint working for the Sheriff's Department near Phoenix, Arizona. I also spent some time working for a suburban Chicago, Illinois Police Department. I later moved back to Arizona and spent some time studying criminal justice in college in Arizona. Not long after that, while still in Arizona, I started a bail bond business that became the largest in the state in just two years, giving me broad exposure to the judicial system. As a result of this exposure to both the civil and criminal aspects of the law, I was pretty well prepared to accept my appointment to the Justice Court in 1987, even though I was not an attorney. I was privileged to attend the National Judicial College for training. While serving in the Justice Court I handled small claims, traffic and other civil related cases. In 1988, I was appointed by the City Council to the position of Assistant City Magistrate in a small town outside of Phoenix, Arizona, where I handled a variety of cases including criminal matters.
