Thinking About Tax Evasion? Think Again!
Many have tried, many have failed. Those who feel it is their right not to pay income taxes often wind up in court, some pay hefty fines. But it does make for some interesting reading...
Welcome to the Quatloos Cyber-Museum of Scams and Frauds! If you're thinking about a little tax evasion, take a few moments to read about what gimmicks have already been tried - no sense wasting your time with something that's already made its way through the court system. The Tax Protestor Gallery provides links to the actual court cases that have entertained tax schemes.
And if you're interested in a little background information, the Anti-IRS Theories a/k/a Tax Protestor Junk page may provide you with just the night-time reading you seek.
Voice of the Editor
Which isn’t completely true. I mean, occasionally I drop by when I manage to sneak out of the nonstop frat party over at Going Concern, but I’m mostly a wallflower over there. I’m happy to say that I’ve been given express permission (or explicit orders, if you like) to wander over here to AccountingWEB more often.
Why is that, you might ask? My job is to replace the irreplaceable Gail Perry as Editor-in-Chief. What does that mean? I don’t really know! I think it’ll be fun getting a feel for things, throwing in my own thoughts here and there, and listening to the discussions you’re having about the accounting profession.
