Federal Employees Not Paying Income Taxes

This is an interesting story but two particular sentences caught my attention:

"The IRS tracks the voluntary compliance rate of federal employees and retirees each year, and each year feds come up short."
"As for the general public's voluntary compliance rate, the IRS no longer tracks those numbers, so it is impossible to compare."

If paying federal income taxes is considered a voluntary compliance why are people in prison for not voluntarily complying?

I would like to know. Is paying the federal income tax lawfully voluntary or lawfully compulsory? Anyone? Please post your comments.

And what about the US Postal Service? Their employees are the most delinquent! Is it 'in the mail?'


Feds owe Uncle Sam $3B in unpaid taxes
