Cheating On Taxes? For Some It's Acceptable

WTVO/WQRF - "Cheaters never prosper" is a lesson most Americans seem to have adopted.

WTVO/WQRF - "Cheaters never prosper" is a lesson most Americans seem to have adopted.

A new survey shows a vast majority of Americans say cheating on taxes is unacceptable.

But, there are some who think it's perfectly fine to under-report income, claim bogus deductions, and inflate credits according to an IRS oversight board poll of a 1,000 people.

When asked how acceptable it is to cheat on taxes, if at all, 12% of those surveyed answered "a little here and there" or "as much as possible."

If you do cheat on your taxes, be ready to cough up a big fine if you're caught.  Depending on how bad the fraud is, you could even face prison time.
