He had no legal residence, no drivers license, and no job. He had a lot of old numbers, but they were all dead ends. They could not trace him.
And this guy wasn't a bum. He was dirt poor, but he supported himself.

wow, I can't see how it could be done. If he supports himself, he would still have to lodge a tax assessment? That tax assessment would then trace him to an address and how he supports himself.
I am not saying I want to get out of the system. It just frustrates me that I have little choices. Regarding my wages. I have to have them put into a Bank. If I didn't accept this process, I couldn't work.
And we have to have a job? If you don't have a job, then you have to put your name down somewhere on the Government system for benefits.
Legally, he should have filed taxes because he had barter income
If they'd known where he was they could have tried to arrest him for tax evasion
I have always had the option at my discretion, of presenting identification and my paycheck either at a bank or at a check cashing establishment, and recieving hard currency which would prevent my transactions from being recorded, although the cashing of my check would still be recorded.
My brother actually does deal exclusively in cash- he feels that he cannot trust banks
I'd start using a permanent address for my documents that I didn't live at full time and get a PO Box for my mail.
I'd get rid of my bank account and I would handle all of my transactions in cash.
I'd get rid of my cellular phone and I'd start using public phones.
I'd rent a room from or a guest host from a home owner and I wouldn't use that address for any purpose.
I'd save up a little money, then I'd quit my job, and using my savings I would make it my business to buy, repair, and resale the various things that I am more or less qualified to repair, particularly vehicles.
