SB-2099 Listing Your Firearms On Your Tax Forms Is A Hoax

SB-2099 Listing Your Firearms On Your IRS 1040 Forms Is A Hoax
IRS 1040 does not require you to list guns.

Windsor, CO –-( Daily, we've being deluged by well-meaning gun owners who are scared that a bill called “SB-2099” has passed Congress secretly, and that you must now list your firearms on your IRS 1040 forms.  If you fell prey to this e-mail hoax, you need to join a real gun rights group you trust.There are a great number of indicators in this e-mail that prove the sender is not to be trusted.

“This bill will become public knowledge 30 days after it is voted into law.”

Baloney. I don't trust the scumbuckets in Washington, D.C. either.

But a bill can't become law without “public knowledge” or without a vote. If this were possible, is there any doubt the liberals would use it to immediately enact their gun control fantasies? The only thing stopping them is…well, frankly, you.

Another thing that tells you this isn't accurate is that the US Senate doesn't list them as “SB 2099” or “SB-2099”. It would be “S. 2099”.

The third glaring indication that it isn't real is that when you do a search of “S. 2099” or even “2099” from the US Senate website, it returns nothing.

I'm a former US Senate employee (Sen. Bill Armstrong's staff), and still have a lot of contacts on the Hill. So I've got a good handle on federal legislation — we track federal legislation here:

The one thing they did get right is that 2099 was, at one time, a bill in the U.S. Senate… in 2000. And yes, it was a gun control disaster.

It didn't get anywhere, but 9 years later it's not still alive.

However, this illustrates why we exist: There's a lot of misinformation out there — especially on the internet — and gun owners need someone they trust take the time to decipher it. They want to know what's happening without being scammed, so they become members of groups they trust.

If you are sent this e-mail, forward our above reply, with a note from you to the sender and all the recipients:

“I asked a gun lobbyist I trust about the legislation you referenced, “SB-2099”. And, as you can see from this 15-year veteran of the wars to save our freedoms, the referenced legislation isn't as advertised.

There are plenty of real threats to our right to keep and bear arms.

Let's put our energy into fighting them, not ghosts.

That's why I'm a member of Rocky Mountain Gun Owners: I trust them to know what's happening and alert me when my help is needed.

If you live in Colorado, you need to be a member. There is no other group in Colorado who truly defends our rights without compromise.

I've been interested in taxes for lengthier then I care to acknowledge, both on the private side (all my employed life-time!!) and from a legal standpoint since satisfying the bar and following tax law. I've furnished a lot of advice and rectified a lot of wrongs, and I must say that what you've posted makes impeccable sense. Please continue the good work – the more people know the better they'll be equipped to cope with the tax man, and that's what it's all about.


I had heard the rumors of this bill at my office and became very scared…but if you think about it, how could they track ALL of your firearms…think about it.

Everyone owns a few that they bought off a friend and then there is DEAR OLE' GRANDDAD'S deer rifle and shotgun. It is truly impossible for them to accurately do this to the American public

since when does the government require your approval/knowledge to pass a law? You gave them the approval when you voted. after that, they are on their own. even if SB-2099 was a hoax or wasn't going to pass. do you actually think your rights are safe? what a joke!!!!

do you honestly trust the government to do what's right? another joke!!!! protect your weapons, because when they are gone. well that will be a very sad day indeed! and people are "for a fact" at work to get rid of your guns. NO HOAX!!!!!!!!!!!!


Who was the fucking asshole that started that bullshit?????


Paranoids invariably spin around in circles, accomplishing nothing. They usually can't spell, either.


The bill that would require the posting of gun and ammo ownership on taxes proposed in 2009 was actually HR 45. you can find details about this bill at It gained no support and as of early March was said to be a dead issue. HOWEVER, if you think that things have to become public knowledge your kidding yourself and anyone reading this. For example, how about the EXECUTIVE order signed by Obama that established a fund for relocation of Hammas Refugies to the US on the tax payers dime. In case your don't know the name, HAMMA is… Read more »
