Obviously if you are on company payroll you can’t avoid paying income tax.
But what if you own a small business? For example, suppose you’re a professional eBayer making primarily small transactions which don’t have to be reported to the IRS on an individual basis. Suppose you also use multiple bank accounts in different banks so that money donesn’t accumiulate in any one too quickly. How would the IRS find you in this case? How does the IRS find anyone who doesn’t pay taxes?
Or, what if you used an offshore bank in a country with no income tax and no reporting requirements? Could you have all of your ebay income transferred directly from your customers to the offshore account and then live out of the offshore account?
