Since it requires not only an assessment of taxes owed but also the liability created to pay them, what IRS regulation creates the liability to pay income tax? I have searched the code in Title 26 and can't find a regulation that invokes this liability. I have been able to find the sections that create liability if I distill alcohol, sell tobacco, or manufacture firearms but none on the earning of compensation for labor sold. Am I just confused? Please point me to the regulations on this matter.
