By that logic, if I'm on the losing side of the deal, you must be on the winning side? You're cheating the government, I hardly would call you a winner. I'd call you a cheater. And your Plato reference doesn't apply since there are repercussions in this case, such as serious fines and jail time. Also, saying that you pay as much as the average taxpayer on a per capita basis is irrelevant. Nothing wrong with making some extra scrilla on the side, just do it the right way. C&F probably wouldn't catch it unless the IRS caught you first, but that still doesn't make it okay.
I realize you may look at it as no big deal since it's your money anyway, but as long as it's a law, well then it's a law. And tax evasion, in any form and at any amount, is against the law. Besides, you sound like you have a lucrative side business that I'll bet could really grow even more if you wanted it to. You're only hurting yourself by constantly having to lie on your tax return. And if you want to find a banker in the U.S. to fund your growth, these days auditors look for the numbers used for underwriting. So good luck.
But yes, I agree that if there were no repercussions, I guess we'd all do it. But then, we wouldn't have a country. Like I said, pay your taxes if you're coming this way.
urgh;; you and I are on different wave lengths. I am so sorry.
One more thing: I think the world needs more people like you so that bolded doesn't happen. That way, I can evade taxes and we'd still have a country!
Yeah, we're on totally separate wavelengths. When I was a kid, if I was out with my friends playing and we came across a "No Trespassing" sign, I stopped. I got laughed at a few times, but I just don't have that bone in me that allows me to live dangerously. Not saying I've never broken the rules, I'm just saying I am the type who gets very nervous when I know I'm doing something I shouldn't be doing. Others might call that a rush, but it never felt good to me. As a grownup, I get a kick out of busting people and I cannot wait to get paid for it.
You both sound like douche bags. HTH.
It does help, thanks.
