    I dunno if Im allowed to ask this on here or not or if anyone will admit to it but I'll give it a shot. We all know the government is just a bunch of crooks and try to take waaaay too much money anyway. So does anyone make it work with out the legal stuff?

    Audit is if your on the books and not claiming the income.

    I'd rather be poor than have to worry about looking over my shoulder.

    I am very "on the books" with accounting and taxes and have little to no respect for those guys who operate "off."
