    I was wondering the same thing. There is the one company in town that doesn't pay taxes. His best guy is working for me now and he told me how this guys grossed over 100k last summer and only reported 4k of that to the IRS. Someone please tell me how I am suppose to compete with this guy? This guy had the nerve to tell some of the guys he had working for him that he has 5 summers worth of earnings buried in town somwhere. I don't know if this is true....but this is what he said. I have a feeling this guy is going down!

    Kinda vicious turning people into the IRS, don't you think. If you can't compete without being under-handed, then you're no better than he is.

    Does he not paying all of his taxes affect your business. If so please tell me how. Personally I think it is his business and only his. If the IRS wants to track his small assets, and get their share from him, then let THEM do it. Are you trying to drive him staight out of business by doing that? Its probably not going to work if he is grossing 100K a year. Sounds like he has enough business, unless his overhead is extremely high. Personally, I would stay out of it. I dont know this guy fom adam, but he could become rather upset if he found that YOU were the one to tun him in.
