My suggestion is to "opt out" of the system. Through the use of a "quit claim" and a little wheeling and dealing with a few very close friends, I now own nothing, nor do I receive any income. Quoting: R.P. McMurphy
Imagine if several million other tax payers did this very thing.

People would be surprised with how little they need to survive. We WANT a lot of things, but we need very little.
Oh I still have things... I just don't legally own them.
This is not something I did on a whim. It was all thought out and executed perfectly legally.
First, I paid off all my debt and cut up my credit cards. All of them. I won't even use an ATM card. I use cash and that's all. Cash leaves no footprint or paper trail. If I don't have enough cash, I don't need to buy what it was I wanted.
I have one back account with a small local bank and only deposit enough to cover my monthly bill. I usually carry a balance of 5-10 dollars.
I am on no one's W-2 or 1099, and therefore earn no money.
And now, with the quit claim, and a couple of other little tricks, I had pretty much "opted out" of the system.
And quite frankly, if I ever receive any type of correspondence from any government organization it will go directly into the circular file... if you know what I mean.
I am simply not going to play their game.
