Somewhere out there is a magical little number which is very hard to come by but I bet someone in here could find it out through their networks.
Somebody once shared it with me and it was so astronomical and from a source I could not publicly verify that I didn't bother to post it but it was
the number estimate of Americans per year that neither file or pay the Federal income Tax.
We already know the reasoning that so many people voluntarily comply as it is stated below from an internal IRS document and it is nothing as Noble as
Publicity regarding tax enforcement. The component of transparency that constitutes the strongest incentive for tax compliance is clearly the
publicity given to prosecution and conviction of individual tax evaders. In 1996 the IRS Criminal Investigation Division (CID), employing about
5,000 persons or five percent of the total IRS staff complement, referred 3,600 cases for prosecution to the Department of Justice (DoJ).13
3600 cases in 1996 and what was the population at the time around 265,000,000. Now you know good and well more than 3600 persons defaulted the Federal
Income Tax. Why is the number of estimated evaders so elusive. What possible harm could it do to know this number.
Because what if that number astronomically exceeds the number of available Law enforcement to prosecute it? Remember the IRS own statistics claim that
the majority of you voluntarily comply because you fear prosecution and that is why we are seeing this type of heavy handed advertising.
They know you respond favorably to tyranny.
