Anti-Tax Author Claims Mental Illness

Dateline: LAS VEGAS
Court documents claim Schiff, 77, suffers from suicidal depression, bipolar mental disorder, paranoia and delusions that made him believe paying taxes was voluntary.
"In short, Mr. Schiff's behavior is not rational," said Cynthia Barry, a San Jose, Calif., psychologist who interviewed Schiff in 2004.
Barry's account, along with reports from an Idaho psychologist and a Las Vegas psychiatrist, were contained in documents Schiff's lawyers submitted to Judge Kent Dawson. Dawson is due to sentence Schiff on Feb. 24.
Federal prosecutors could not be reached for comment Wednesday.
During his five-week trial, they portrayed Schiff as con man who scammed people into believing they could dodge their tax liability. They said the scheme was responsible for nearly 5,000 tax returns that fraudulently reported no income and cost the government about $56 million from 1999 to 2001.
Schiff faces up to 43 years in prison and up to $3.25 million in fines, plus unspecified sanctions for outbursts during the trial.
Co-defendant Cynthia Neun, 52, was found guilty of 15 of 16 charges, including conspiracy, tax evasion, aiding in the filing of fraudulent tax returns, Social Security disability fraud and theft of government property. She faces up to 50 years in prison and $3.3 million in fines.
Another co-defendant, Lawrence Cohen, 65, was sentenced Feb. 3 to two years and nine months in prison for his conviction on a charge of aiding in the filing of fraudulent tax returns.

The Warning Signs Of An Impending Bipolar Disorder Manic Episode
Bipolar disorder - as the name implies - involves two distinct set of symptoms. One set throws the individual down into the depths of a massive depression. The other places the individual who suffers with bipolar disorder at the top of a peak manic episode.
Most everyone can eventually recognize the warning signs of an impending depressive episode related to bipolar disorder. More likely than not, individuals with bipolar disorder try very hard to avoid it.
However, for many individuals with bipolar disorder, it's more difficult to recognize the signs of an impending manic episode. After all, a manic episode of bipolar disorder can be mistaken in some cases - especially in the very early formation -- for the lifting of the corresponding mood swing of the depression.
