Please read one of David Cay Johnstons' books on American tax policy. He's uncovered so many tax dodges, that he's been called the "de facto chief tax enforcement officer of the United States". I'm halfway through "Free Lunch" right now, and can't wait to dive into the other 2 I ordered.
I am neither associated with David Cay Johnston, nor with any book selling organization. I simply believe in learning the truth about tax policy/law, and being able to correct misconceptions and demagogical attitudes and comments.
