It’s that time of year again, which means that the tax rush is now officially over. April 15th tends to loom over every taxpayer’s head like a rain cloud. Sometimes a small white lie to reduce tax liability doesn’t seem like it would hurt anyone that much. In reality, this is called tax evasion and it should be avoided at all costs. Everyone has to pay taxes, which means that businesses as well as individuals may fall into the trap of lying about their taxes. Some people may evade their taxes altogether, but this is not as common as lying or misrepresenting the true state of your affairs to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS).
