    I was just wondering how many people are completly, 100%, honest about reporting their gross income? You know that we are in a cash bussiness (some of the time , esp. in residential accounts). And do you agree w our govt spending our tax $$$ in countries that have never been ourn allies or will never be. Ex. Nigeria just got over 250 Million in federal aid. What has this country EVER done for us? And why should our money be spent there? Just like to hear your comments. (I have contacted Eric and your ID will not be violated or reveled)

    Part of the game of business! Hire an accountant. Paying taxes is a game, too! Uncle Sam offers a lot of deductions, based on your business classification (Sole Prop., S-Corp., Corporation) Reseach and use them to your advantage.

    You better hold something back, if you are audited they will assume x % is cash and y/x% wasnt reported and rots of ruck proving otherwise so take your liberties now the IRS expects it.
