SURVEY: 12% of Americans Say It's OK to Cheat on Taxes
While most Americans say cheating on taxes is unacceptable, 12% say it’s OK.
When asked how acceptable it is to cheat on taxes, if at all, 12% of respondents to a recent survey answered, "A little here and there" or "Ss much as possible."
That's up slightly from 11% in 2012 and up from a low of 9% in 2008.
The survey also found that opinions about the IRS have gotten more negative, with many people saying the agency spends too much time and effort trying to bust people – and doesn’t pay enough attention to helping regular taxpaying citizens. (CNN)
