The easiest way to avoid going on the list is to pay your taxes then, is it not?
It is only the tax evaders who will suffer in the long run.
Don't kid yourself. It never is that simple.
For example, look at child support. If you owe more than $2,500 in child support, you can not get a passport and you may not leave the country. Now on
the surface, many people applaud such an action. However, let me show you another side.....
I can no longer leave the country due to child support. I had always had my support taken directly out of my paycheck. I never touched the money. One
day, out of nowhere, a private company known as "Support Kids" got involved. Without my knowledge, they sent paperwork to my employer's corporate
office and began collecting the payments..basically over riding the already existing paperwork which had my support being paid directly to the State.
This went on for a total of 3 years before I was aware of it.
Want to guess how I became aware of it? If your guess is that I became aware of it when the Police showed up at my job and arrested me in front of my
boss and coworkers for failure to pay support, you guessed right. I didn't go to jail that day, lucky for me it was pay day and my boss went and got
my paycheck and showed the Police that my support was indeed being paid every single week.
Turns out this private company, which collected my payments for a period of 3 years, not once reported a single payment to the State. Today, I am
still paying back all that money that they collected and because of that situation, I am now behind in my support and can no longer leave the
So only tax evaders should worry? Stop being naive. Every year the IRS screws something up and innocent people suffer. This will be no different.
