Shoplifting is stealing from someone else.
Littering is making a mess that you expect someone else to pick up, in other words littering is being a slob.
“Cheating” on taxes is trying to keep what is rightfully yours from being taken from you by force so that it can be given to someone who didn’t earn it.
The first two are clearly immoral.
The third is not. (It just requires more balls than I posses, LOL!)
Cheating on one’s taxes is as simple as paying someone under the table. Very much akin to taking your wallet out of your back pocket and putting it in front while in a crowd.
While you “Cheating on Taxes” was tongue in cheek, I would never have though that I might agree with you but today with the cheats that are consistently found, maybe it it necessary to get the government’s attention. Things have changed so much!
Might be the time for the “little people” to refrain from paying taxes - seems the only thing that gets their attention. As far as a revolution per say, I could definitely agree with that. Heck, it might even get the attention of our overlords!
Tax simplification, removal of all special interest tax dodges removed would be a good thing. Follow up with TAX simplification and all might survive.
True Story: I had outstanding taxes due to working for myself for 3 years and had no idea about the tax requirements (naive at the time). After realizing that I was suppose to have paid taxes before they were due (every quarter), I went to the FED tax offices and ask what to do. I paid 40 thousand in advance just in case. They immediately ask about whether I owned property or had any other cash assets. This was our government. They were not worried about what I owed but whether I could be a provider of assets. They were only after as much as they could take. This was our wonderful government!
So, yes I sympathize with your taxes stand!
