Could it be, that with the new year and April 15th on everyone's mind, the words "tax evasion" are used more often than other times of the year?
Maybe try not to distrust yourself so much. You are probably hearing it more right now.

Some of it can also be cell phones, computer microphones and smart TV's with microphones in them that listen to words and phrases and then display ad's and facebook suggestions. For example, I was talking to some people over my wired headset on my PS3 and a game was mentioned, then I went to my computer and got ad's for that game (first time getting that game ad).
Now, if words from the TV are self typing the self into address bars and what not, its time to turn that operating system "feature" off.
Two years ago, after BadBIOS, some German researchers created a proof of concept to see if transferring data across high frequency audio was possible to jump the air gap (arstechnica.com... ... ble-sound/). "Using nothing more than the built-in microphones and speakers of standard computers, the researchers were able to transmit passwords and other small amounts of data from distances of almost 65 feet." IMO, that advertisers keep basing their technological "progress" off of malware research and techniques is very telling.
