How does tax fraud affect me?

Since dishonest people are not paying their fair share, there is no “level playing field” for businesses or consumers. This can sometimes lead to higher prices, possible tax increases, and inadequately funded school systems, government infrastructure and other government programs. The added burden of covering these shortages falls on honest taxpayers and the taxpaying public.
