    I have a friend who is an attorney and has been since '03. He doesn't work for a firm, he works for himself, so the clients pay him directly, and he has never filed a tax return. He just takes the money, puts it in the bank, and spends it.

    Obviously, he's an attorney so he's well aware he's supposed to be paying taxes. He just doesn't. One day he will be caught and it will be hell. I keep telling him this.

    Anyone else know any tax cheats?

    Anyone whoever had a yard sale and didn't report the profits is a tax cheat. Tax cheats are everywhere.

    "tax cheats" is a pretty broad term. What category would you place this individual in?

    LAWYERS WORK

    Hmmmm... No response from SpidermanTuba. Maybe just a fly by...

    Or then, maybe just overwhelmed by the burden...

    nope. I know none.

    and there is a reward for ratting on people like your lawyer friend. they should know that. so I do not really believe you know or are telling the truth

    your reason for disbelieving is because he has not ratted his Friend out to the government for a little money ..:? wow!..what a strange conclusion

    I suspect a whole lot of people can't really cheat on the taxes because their taxes are deducted from their paychecks.

    Most people who have yard sales aren't cheating because generally they are making no CAPITAL GAINS from the stuff they sell cheaper than they bought it.

    I just visited my tax cheating friend, and was pleased to learn that he now pays taxes.
