“Everyone does it, so it must be OK.”  That is what more American’s are saying lately when it comes to the topic of cheating on on their taxes.  And since it’s tax season, you will probably start to have chances to cheat.  While of course it is 100% illegal, a ton of people still are going to give it a shot.  What do you think?  Do you plan to cheat?

When it comes to cheating on taxes, 12% of Americans say that they will either cheat a little, or cheat as much as they can, even though they know it’s wrong.  Many times people say that is because they feel the IRS is becoming more and more negative.  Also, Yahoo says that the people who mentions they would cheat, has probably made some bad financial situations.

“They justify not paying because they are paying all they can for something more important,” said Chambers. “These are sad cases to see, and are probably more prevalent since the recession of 2008.”

And if you know someone who is cheating, and cheating BIG, you might want to think about ratting them out!  Yahoo also says:

“On the other hand, you could collect a hefty ransom if you’re willing to rat someone else out for cheating on their taxes. The IRS will pay 15% to 30% of any amount exceeding $2 million that it collects from the tax cheat you turn in. For less than $2 million, you get a maximum award of 15%.”
