Re: State Charted Corporation
- Patrick, thank you for your very detailed analsys of my question.
I have no doubt as to the liability of a corporation itself for the
federal exise taxes as the holding in McCulloch states, but my
question relates to the liability of the officer. I know you have
quoted various statutes, thank you for those quotes, is there any
case law you know of as it relates to this very specific inquiry?
Are you implying that because the state (of the Union) created the
corporation, it by implication also created the officer, and by that
act he also falls under the same statutory scope as the corporation?

This proposition may almost be pronounced self-evident." McCULLOCH v.
STATE, 17 U.S. 316 (1819)
