It’s why we got chickens, a garden and a couple of steers. We’re splitting the steers with another guy and our chickens produce six eggs a day in winter. We can from the garden.
A friend who is an electrician does most of his work for cash. But they don’t need much cash because they also sell “shares” in their dairy cattle, allowing “shareholders” to legally consume the non-pasteurized milk they sell. They sell their eggs too. They get a lot more than us.
They pay no income tax. They are below the “poverty level”.
the way to achieve this without suspicion would be to gradually go off credit cards and onto only cash...
