IRS Poll Shows Majority Of Americans Pay Taxes Out Of Fear

Chris | InformationLiberation

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.

What's more, the vast majority of Americans—95 percent—mostly or completely agree that it's every American's civic duty to pay taxes.

It's not mainly a fear of getting caught that motivates people to be honest. More than nine in 10 of those surveyed said personal integrity influences whether they honestly report and pay their taxes. By contrast, just six in 10 said fear of an audit influenced their tax compliance.

[...]The taxpayer attitude survey was conducted last August by outside polling firm GfK Custom Research. The pollsters do not say at the beginning of the survey that it is being conducted on behalf of the IRS Oversight Board, but after respondents have answered all the questions it does indicate that the survey is related to the IRS.
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.

6645 Taxes are taken (stolen) out of my pay before I even get my check. I did get a very nice refund this year, the best I've ever gotten, but I'd prefer to keep the money I earned in the first place.

6897 read the front of the code book, it tells it all, Corporate tax code, are you incorporated? If not, ? NO one reads it, they listen to their IRS brainwashed CPAs, find a copy at your local law library and see if you are eligible.

6897 all your money goes to the FRS pet projects, off shore, underground and don't tell me they don't exist, they were displayed on tv with their guards at the front door with machine guns, wasting your money every year, lets see the FRS prints now 65B every month for years to prop up wall street and the bankers, the "right full owners, you thought he meant you" the people, the people who started the 1913 con.

6897 and don't go for a flat rate tax, if that ever happened we would pay 1%, and that could never go up, the gov;'t was never created to be the monolith it has become, the federal gov;t was created by the STATES!!! cut out 90% of gov;t and then we might vote on a flat rate or %, otherwise it will never do anything but support the existing insanity, remember, you can change anything from the same mindset that created it, no gov't other than the constitutional, bill of rights, no welfare, technological freedom for all nations, Mr. Tesla already showed the way, take care, Lightwire
