Do you exist?

Consider the matter carefully -- what evidence do you have that you exist? Naturally in considering the matter we must disregard your testimony, you being an interested party and all that. Similarly we must disregard the testimony of your parents and your coworkers since they are clearly the victims of a conspiracy on your part to deceive them into believing that you exist. Likewise we cannot consider any official government documents that you may submit as evidence for clearly they may have been forged or otherwise fraudulently produced. In short, there is no good evidence that you exist.

Unfortunately and quite unfairly, your nonexistence will not deter the government from collecting taxes from you.
