Update: 05/08/2023

THANK YOU, To all my neighbors and friends of Jackson County GA, County Government Officials, the many govt employees and of course our fine Sheriff's Department, that welcomed me and said so many kind words of support at the county tax meeting in Jackson County GA tonight.

We intend to bring our administrative county and state government back into lawful tax collection practices, as per the US Constitution, a document that they MAY HAVE sworn an oath to uphold, and to do so, by any legal means ( Except perhaps as in Barron v Baltimore ) and I seek class action attorney's, that wish to join us in this cause.

I look forward to all the future meetings, with all our fine government representatives and to resolving this without a trial, in favor of "We The People" and I desire that all of Georgia residents, join us too in this quest, as we must stop all our governments from taxing our land, as In my opinion, this is unlawful. They are now on notice, and you are witness to them being told they were not acting within the law of our American Nation.

Remember,  Our land was created freehold, and as it was passed down through the ages, Allodially = totally, without taxes owed to anyone, and without the ability of anyone to place a lien or tax against it, less we give them that permission in writing, as per the original Georgia land grants and  Crown Land Patent terms warranted by the US Constitution's Supremacy Clause found in Article VI,  Clause 2. that passes freely to us the land owners today.

You all have my word, that I will not stop fighting for this, until victory is in this matter with ,  "We The People"   !  

Best Regards,

I Went To The Brazelton GA Civic Center Meeting at 6 PM Thursday 05-11-2023 . See My Posting Below ! 

Opinion Article BY:

Joe Woodall, Ecoitect TM, 

Is it legal to build an off grid home, even though your government may say no ?

We are not Lawyers except for ourselves, We're designers and consultants, but in our opinion and based upon the facts of court decisions, our answer is:

It depends.

Here's  "some"   of what I mean and YES, there's always lot's more to discuss than one article could describe:

You have Constitutional Rights ( we all do that live in the American Nation ) and the S.C.O.T.U.S. (supreme court of the US) has already affirmed many times in the

Americans favor, along the lines we write about herein, and their decision was against any government control by new laws , permits , fees or codes, that limit our

basic constitutional freedoms, so perhaps it's not absolute that you must follow , just as others may suggest, and go automatically to your government and

fully comply, with "local ordinances" if they are not constitutional, as the supreme laws may already dictate you don't have to. 

For example:

In the Bill Of Rights and the First Constitutional Amendment (and yes, it was ratified by each state, into their Constitution when that state was formed

and this still exists) affirms that:

"We The People" (that's you by the way), hold the Right to practice your religion . See more below, but to paraphrase: 

"(Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting, the free exercise thereof...)".


Could your way of life, and perhaps even the actual construction of some structure including your families home, be some part of your religion ?

Our Answer is: Yes it can certainly, and conditionally !

This "Right" to practice religion, has only been limited by a couple of Supreme Court decisions, that stipulated that

1.) Public Health, and/or

2.) Public Safety, must not become interfered with, by that practice of religion, for it to be limited.
BUT, Americans have that Right !

Are you an American ?

There are additional rulings, that have also affirmed our Rights, (as they are Derived from God not government and thus must be protected

by all governments within America), so the answer is not a simple yes or no,  as it may depend on who you are ( Man or woman Only !) and your religion ! 

Therefore, If you identify as a 3 legged unicorn or something else in fantasy - then Nope, in my humble opinion.

Here Below Are THE FIRST 10 AMENDMENTS, KNOWN AS "Bill of Rights" :

Amendment 1
Freedom of Religion, Speech, and the Press

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion or prohibiting the free exercise thereof, or abridging the freedom of speech

or of the press, or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.

Amendment 2
The Right to Bear Arms

A well-regulated Militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms shall not be infringed.

Amendment 3
The Housing of Soldiers

No soldier shall, in time of peace, be quartered in any house without the consent of the owner, nor in time of war but in a manner to be prescribed by law.

Amendment 4
Protection from Unreasonable Searches and Seizures

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated,

and no warrants shall issue but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched and the

persons or things to be seized.

Amendment 5
Protection of Rights to Life, Liberty, and Property

No person shall be held to answer for a capital or otherwise infamous crime unless on a presentment or indictment of a grand jury, except in cases arising

in the land or naval forces, or in the militia, when in actual service in time of war or public danger; nor shall any person be subject for the same offense to

be twice put in jeopardy of life or limb; nor shall be compelled in any criminal case to be a witness against himself, nor be deprived of life, liberty,

or property without due process of law; nor shall private property be taken for public use without just compensation.

Amendment 6
Rights of Accused Persons in Criminal Cases

In all criminal prosecutions, the accused shall enjoy the right to a speedy and public trial by an impartial jury of the state and district wherein the crime shall

have been committed, which district shall have been previously ascertained by law, and to be informed of the nature and cause of the accusation;

to be confronted with the witnesses against him; to have compulsory process for obtaining witnesses in his favor; and to have the assistance of

counsel for his defense.

Amendment 7
Rights in Civil Cases

In suits at common law, where the value in controversy shall exceed twenty dollars, the right of trial by jury shall be preserved, and no fact tried by

a jury shall be otherwise reexamined in any court of the United States than according to the rules of the common law.

Amendment 8
Excessive Bail, Fines, and Punishments Forbidden

Excessive bail shall not be required, nor excessive fines imposed, nor cruel and unusual punishments inflicted.

Amendment 9
Other Rights Kept by the People

The enumeration in the Constitution of certain rights shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

Amendment 10
Undelegated Powers Kept by the States and the People

The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the states, are reserved to the states respectively, or to the people.

It really is as Ben Franklin once said, when he was asked by a woman, standing outside of independence hall:

"What have you given us, Mr Franklin" She said? 
Franklin replied :  "A republic madam - if you can keep it" ! 

BTW. President Franklin is said to have been "a state citizen" - not a US CITIZEN,

as the latter, is a modernly invented term, that actually means something other, than you think it does !

Watch the first video below, for more info.

Georgia was formed as a part of a Crown Land Patent from King George and the areas were denoted as Parishes. As such you will need to know which actual "Parish" your Land Patent was apart of, to show your land is a part of the Patent process and bring that data forward with a summary of the individual conveyances. The actual historical Patents, are conserved and able to be seen in the online Georgia State Archives , which displays these original Patent Letters, (some of which are in poor shape) and it's information that's available for free to all the people.
There were 8 original "parishes" that a church was to be built into, so as to serve the English settlers, and those that were built number only two actual buildings so far discovered, and were crafted from the years 1732 - 1860 .

The following link is describing those parishes:

Many thanks to the Jackson County Commissioners this evening, for their allowing me, to come and present my Land Patents information, at tonight's monthly commission meeting, at our beautiful three story, plus a basement, court house meeting room. I asked them all to communicate with the state legislature and the Governor and encourage them with a message of freehold land ownership.
Once again tonight, I met so many nice people and all seemed very interested in just government and were very encouraging of my efforts.
Tonight I will pray once again, that we can all come together peacefully, to save our countrymen and descendents from repugnant unconstitutional codes, including land taxation.
Best Regards,
Joe Woodall


This was handed out at the Brazelton GA community meeting showing the 2023 County budget projections. I added the shown totals and the population and the math shows a burden of $581.31 per person equally apportioned as The US Constitution declares that taxes are to be apportioned equally, thus my math shows what your Jackson County GA taxes should Be. Your Land Value Has NOTHING TO DO WITH TAXES DUE, AS IT"S UNLAWFUL TO PLACE A TAX AGAINST LAND. SEE THE COURSE AND BOOK AT THE TOP OF THIS PAGE FOR A REFERENCE TO THIS.

Additionally, do you have a contract with the Jackson County Corporation (AKA Government)  for some service or product you expressly agreed to purchase? No ? Then you don't owe them anything !  Now this is not me saying that, it's the US Supreme Court and several United States Codes:


Which also goes on to show that using the mail to send false  , property tax bills to obtain money is a crime of mail fraud . And in 18 U.S.C. SS 2071 "Reclassifying a man's private property used for shelter as real property or a residence for the purpose of raising revenue through the falsifying of records is a violation of that code. And , creating a fictitious obligation and presenting it as a bill is a violation of 18 U.S.C.SS 514.

Supreme Court Overturns Precedent In Property Rights Case

Property owners and developers often have complained that zoning rules and other state and local regulations have effectively taken their property for public benefit, and that the Constitution requires that they be paid just compensation or left alone to to enjoy their property.

 U.S. Supreme Court ruled Friday that property owners can go directly to federal court with their claims that state and local regulations effectively have deprived a landowner of their use of their property. The 5-4 decision overturned decades of precedent that barred property owners from going straight to federal court until their claims had been denied in state court.

Federal courts are often viewed as friendlier than state courts for such property claims. The decision, with all five of the court's conservatives in the majority, may have particular effects in areas that have strict regulations for development.

The court's decision came in the case of Rose Mary Knick, who owns 90 acres of land in Scott Township, Pa. Knick's home and a grazing area for her horses are on the land, as well as a small cemetery where her neighbors' ancestors are allegedly buried.

When the town enacted a rule requiring all cemeteries be open to the public during daytime hours, Knick went to state court seeking a judgment that the state had in effect taken her property. When the town withdrew its notice that she was violating the local cemetery law, the state court said Knick could not prove that she was being harmed.

So, she went to the federal courts, which threw out her case based on decades-old Supreme Court decisions that have consistently required property owners to go to the state courts before appealing to the federal courts.

On Friday, however, the U.S. Supreme Court reversed the first of those decisions, a 1985 ruling that required property owners to take their complaints to the state courts first. Instead, the court majority said Knick and other property owners seeking compensation for limits on their property rights may go directly to federal court.

"We now conclude that the state litigation requirement imposes an unjustifiable burden" on a property owner's claim that his or her land has been effectively taken for public benefit without the government paying just compensation, wrote Chief Justice John Roberts.

In essence, Justice Roberts said, property owners are entitled to the same rights in federal court that other citizens have if they can prove that their constitutional rights have been violated. 





Today, I'm writing about our American national rights and how we are actually allowed to be taxed. I'm not debating if our government can tax us , only how they may legally tax us.

Land patents are the strongest conveyance of ownership, and this is the method all land was transferred within the colony's by the treaties our governments signed.

You will benefit most by seeing the pinned post on my Facebook, for a video ( noted below ) and first please download the companion book (PDF) noted in the 1st comments listed.

Skim over a the book, maybe for just an hour before watching the video and that may help you understand better the video. do so with your spouse, family & friends, as you will need your partner with you, in all things so dear, as your basic rights of Land ownership.

The video course is also at YouTube:

Both of these are FREE to watch & download so share them widely ! They are both also on my website http://joewoodall.com and I will update that page, as this information moves forward.

"We The People", need our administrative governments to do to peoples work, and this is evidenced by their winning our votes in elections, thereby putting them in their elected positions and they must govern lawfully and legally, always in keeping with all of our rights, as Free Americans.

Our land comes to us with many rights guaranteed and built in, Google "Land Patents" for a quick overview.

By my actions, I intend to bring our administrative Jackson county government, just to begin with and then our GEORGIA state government, as a whole, back into lawful tax collection practices.

We agreed by our votes for various projects and policies, that the government has to collect enough tax money, to accomplish or to run our government, but their collection actions, cannot run counter to the US Constitution and taxing land directly, is prohibited and counter to the Supreme law of our nation, the US Constitution guaranteeing that the treaties and constitution were supreme laws .

That document frames, how they "the elected" on all levels, may work for the people and they all swore an oath to uphold the Constitution, and I intend to see they do so, with my actions, by using any legal means allowed me, as a free American and I seek all Americans to join with me, in this and to bring class action attorney's too, that wish to join us, in this just cause, as it affects them too. Please contact me directly if you need more info & that contact info is at www.joewoodall.com

Remember this if nothing else today, our land that we own now, was passed to us by inheritance or in many other different ways, all legally including the purchases , and that land is just as equally "freehold" today, as it was upon the first Land Patent
( which means it's totally unencumbered ) and this is recorded as to be "in perpetuity" which means forever, and down through the ages it came to us, "Allodially" by the original wording, which means totally and transferred "without taxes owed to anyone including "sovereigns" or governments or other people, and no government may place a lien or tax upon upon our land, and this is again " in perpetuity". That is unless we give them that permission in writing, after being fully informed as to the options and consequences of our allowing such lien, ( not to do so is fraud , which has no time limitations ) and this is all as per the original US Land Patents, that were issued by Congress, in many cases they were signed by the President or later through for example by a Georgia original land grant and before all that, by the original Crown Land Patents and for lands acquired by our American Federal Government for example in the Treaty Of Peace With Great Britain, which was written and signed by our forefathers, to end the revolutionary war, and like so, with treaties that were signed between our Nation and all the Indian Nations, all of which had those same above terms, still included and named specifically, which are also warranted to "We The People", by the US Constitution's Supremacy Clause noted above, which included reference specifically to all the treaties and that states may not change this (which has also been Court tested and ruled "Supreme" by the American united states Supreme Court and this is upheld also in the International Court's too) thus our nation was founded and the Land came to us today, still Freehold & the Constitution in Article VI, Clause 2. warrants this entire nations succeeding governments complete acceptance, of those very terms , thus thereby passing all of the benefits, of those original documents to We The People, just as solidly today, as the day those documents were created, and keeping us Americans Free, on our land. Thus no government may take our rights from us, but they have tried by way of a property tax !

I look forward to speaking at all the future meetings as is possible, and with all our fine government representatives and to all the people of America interested in resolving this inequity, without a trial, fully in favor of "We The People".

And, I desire that all of Georgia's land owners, the renters & tenants on the land too, (whom may become land owners someday as well), and all Americans interested in all the Freedoms we inherited that are hidden, to please come and join with us in this quest, as we must stop all our administrative governments, from unjustly taxing our land, or taking our rights.

They the Jackson County Commissioner's collectively, are now on verbal notice, that they are not acting for the people, in good faith any longer, nor are they within the laws of our American Nation and I hear by, remind them that they too swore that oath, to uphold the US Constitution, and the state elected officials did too and the violation of your oath, comes with eventual criminal and civil penalties, and if forced to litigate this matter, "We The People" will seek damages.

Thank you to all The Very Supportive People I was able to meet at tonight's town hall meeting at the lovely, new, and massive Brazelton Civic Center !

Great job on that place !

While I wasn't able to speak from the microphone tonight,  they allowed me to speak to those that were leaving out in the main hallway, as they said my voice was too loud when speaking in the back of the room during their planned Q & A To Those Seated , so I got to talk individually to all those leaving ( And Boy did most leave early and MAD as the commissioners , all though they are the nicest of people we have elected, they said they had no real answers to the majority of the Peoples questions, past what they are doing now, as it's just what the state says they must do, and {I'm sure my voice was too loud also}.

The evening went very well, by doing it that way, So thank you to the very cordial Officer, one of Jackson County GA's Finest Deputies Ronnie Kilburn, (who is also a realtor (R) with Keller Williams)  for his wise suggestion to move my discussions out to the lobby, because I was able to meet so many more and actually talk at length to the local residents ( some that I met Monday at that Town Hall Meeting ) and we could speak longer and they all seemed to have the same Land Rights interest, as myself.

I have been speaking this week to everyone I could, as I traveled across the state of Georgia, with this Land Patent message, and with great reception from everyone and I spoke to a few Barred Georgia Attorney's too about the laws and about assisting me, in this quest for Land Rights for us all Georgians

( which included them too ) and they mostly are telling me this is solid case law  - "that Land Patents are already decided as the strongest form of land ownership" and one said this might be quite a large project, to cause our governments to follow the Constitution properly" .. because "it would be against all the states and over in US District Court, as this is a Constitutional issue" that can't be decided at the state level, since "our state judges actually have a conflict of interest because of their job positions being employed by the state" , if it had to go to trial, and "that it likely would", as it's hard to get real change from our state level policies and laws.  

Despite that, I will endeavor on forward, by speaking to those interested and I plan on being at the next Jackson County Commission Meeting, with a desire to meet more taxpayers interested in the same goals, as well as at other GA. county's meetings, passing on this Land Patent Allodial Title info, as far and wide as I can afford to, ( especially considering the double tax bill we are likely personally facing, later this year ).

PLEASE Share this info above in the pinned postings ( PDF BOOK & LAW OF LAND PATENTS COURSE ), as we need the Nation to be against Unlawful tax collections and unlawful property taking or land liens, as Land can't Lawfully be taxed, as per the original Land Patents wording & backed by the Supremacy Clause of the US Constitution and the Treaties wording .

As always, Call Me If I Can Be Of Help to your learning about what Iv'e learned.

Until my next posting, Best Regards,

Joe Woodall



I Hope this helps those planning alternative methods of payments. As I'm, but a simple Architect of off-grid homes, and not a bar associated attorney licensed in the State Of GA, so before our tax payments go out this year, I though I should ask a lovely young barred attorney I know, about the proper Promissory Notes, etc. uses for taxes.

She said that:
1. "The Tax Commissioner’s Office does not accept a Promissory Note as a form of payment. Technically, taxes are not loans."
2. "The memo/reference line on a check is not legally binding. The line is for informational purposes only and nothing written on that line can bind the recipient".
3. "Since you cannot pay your taxes with a promissory note, there is not a document I can draft for you to pay your taxes. I’m sure you can pay the Tax Commissioner with a certified or cashier’s check, and you can certainly request an allonge" (be) "attached to the check with your terms. But, in order to be legally binding, the Tax Commissioner will have to sign the allonge, which will not happen." This does not consider the bill of exchange act and its effects upon all.

In closing friends: "In My, Humble Opinion", if legally barred opinions mean anything, do use great care with this or alternative payment methods, to ensure they go to the right parties, if you want the payment to do anything positive, certainly this is the cases, when your treasured assets, are on the line. The will be more on this in next years edition.

Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah and Happy New Year !
And Best Regards,
