    Regardless, breaking the law is not wrong if the law does nothing good and in fact perpetuates a negative. Most taxes do this so avoiding them when possible is a good thing.
    Not to mention, avoiding taxes is not necessarily illegal.

    Greatdane is just an emo-tard that tries to make an argument based on his overly sensitive emotions.

    al capone, wesley snipes, heidi fleiss, and a number of other people would disagree with you

    just because paying in cash or making unrecorded transactions will be hard to prove, that does not make it magically legal

    not paying taxes would mean you're avoiding paying taxes

    so that must mean it's a form of tax avoidance?

    You mean working the system isnt allowed? If you dont get taxed for under $500 sold, why would you sell $601? Sell $600 a day. Its like pulling money from the bank, $10,000 in one day flags your account, remove $9,000 in a day and dont get flagged.

    While we are talking about taxes, whats good for the president should be good enough for me right? You know, Loopholes and all!

    http://freebeacon.com/obama-family-tax-shelter/

    President Obama and his wife, Michele, gave a total of $48,000 in tax-free gifts to their daughters, according to tax records made public on Friday.

    The president and his wife separately gave each daughter a $12,000 gift under a section of the federal tax code that exempts such donations from federal taxes.

    There is nothing illegal about the president’s taking advantage of this tax shelter, but it does raise eyebrows given that he has lamented the myriad tax exemptions used by the wealthy—“millionaires and billionaires” like himself—to pay less in taxes. He has yet to propose a comprehensive plan to reform the byzantine tax code.

    The Obama’s tax return indicates that the gifts, likely for their daughter’s college educations, began in 2007, when the maximum exemptible amount was $24,000 per couple. The maximum exemption has since increased to $26,000 per couple.

    The Obamas paid a total federal tax rate of 20.5 percent on a gross adjusted income $789,674, which would typically fall within the top federal rate of 35 percent. According to an analysis of the president’s tax return, he may have paid a lower rate than his secretary despite making more than eight times as much money as she did.

    His most recent tax proposal—the so-called “Buffett Rule”—would increase taxes on about 4,000 millionaires and raise about $4.7 billion in new revenue per year, enough to cover about 0.4 percent of the projected budget deficit in 2012. Though the rule would apparently not hit the president himself.

    Supporters of the rule have acknowledged that the projected revenue from the “Buffett Rule,” which the Democratic-led Senate is expected to vote down, is “not even a meaningful small amount.”

    The Obama’s untaxed gift to their daughters will leave American taxpayers to subsidize the college education of the children of the multi-millionaire Obamas.
