If you are trying to evade paying your taxes that is a criminal offense in the eyes of the IRS and
you may face severe prosecution. Tax evasion is when someone cognitively fails to report their income
or reports a lower income than they actually have. If you report false information or underpay your
taxes in any way you can also be found guilty of tax evasion. Understating your taxes or any other
reportable transaction is a serious offense that should not be taken lightly.
