Sixty percent of Americans told pollsters fear of an audit influences their decision to pay taxes to the IRS. Note, only fifty-three percent of Americans pay federal income taxes.
See how CBNC managed to spin this as a positive:
The IRS Oversight Board's annual taxpayer survey finds that 86 percent of Americans thinks it's not at all acceptable to cheat on taxes. Most people surveyed also said they generally agreed that everyone who cheats should be held accountable.Fact is, if people weren't compelled to under threats of imprisonment, no one in their right mind would pay anything. People who fear retaliation from the most powerful criminal extortionists on the planet can't be trusted to respond honestly to such polls, nor should they, the threats are real. If the IRS is so confident people simply pay taxes out of "civic duty," they should remove the threats and see how much they get.
