SU v. U.S.

September 26, 2005.

TERESA B. SU, Plaintiff,
v.
UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Defendant.



The opinion of the court was delivered by: MAXINE CHESNEY, District Judge

ORDER DISMISSING ACTION FOR LACK OF JURISDICTION

Before the Court is the complaint filed September 19, 2005 by plaintiff Teresa B. Su ("Su"). Su seeks a declaratory judgment against the United States of America with respect to "whether or not the plaintiff is a taxpayer pursuant to, and/or under 26 U.S.C. § 7701(a)(14)." (See Compl. at 2.)

This Court lacks jurisdiction to issue a declaratory judgment "with respect to Federal taxes other than actions brought under section 7428 of the Internal Revenue Code of 1986," a code section that is not at issue in the instant action. See 28 U.S.C. § 2201; see also Hughes v. United States, 953 F.2d 531, 536-537 (9th Cir. 1991) (affirming dismissal of claim for declaratory relief under § 2201 where claim concerned question of tax liability).

  Accordingly, the instant action is hereby DISMISSED, with prejudice.

  IT IS SO ORDERED.
