The only thing we need to know in the USA is that all persons must to pay taxes ( except for sovereigns, other privileged people such as reservation Indians or others ). We cannot be forgiven by the law if we are wrong. If we have Alzheimer or other illness it is possible of course but must pay these taxes without process.

That country like the United States pays too much taxes, that's why most people sometimes don't pay taxes because it is a lot in their opinion, but that's the way the law is, sometimes we try to hide that, but in the long run the state will always win for that We must not cheat because now are the consequences, become aware of that.

The taxes were too high in America, but i can't make a comparison between democrats and republicans, because i don't know that amounts stopped by tax authorities... with some or with others, when they were in charge. We see the war there and what it will be.

How big are taxes on poker winnings in USA? Don't know if i mised somethin but i cant find that in article. Anyway you must accept the consequences for what you do in past. It's probably not that he like didn't know that he must pay taxes, right? There are allot of better countries if you want to play poker profesionaly.

no matter how much you earn,you pay tax on everything!we all know how sports players pay arround 50 % or their salary on tax (depend of state),so when they say on tv that some basketball player will get 20 million dollars for one year,he will get 10 million,because nobody say that is with tax!so everything else as playing poker and other things are same,you will pay it on end!

its not strange that people pay big taxes on salaries or something that they win,get or on luxury!we have other countries like usa,for example denmark!in denmark you have taxes on your salary and I think its more then 50 % and nobody say anything wrong,because they still earn lot of money and they are happy!
in usa normal worker maybe dont have so much money,so thats why he avoid to pay tax on any way!

America has always been a corrupt country. This is the truth since 1492 or more. Many crimes, robberies, rapes, protection fees, bribes, tax fraud or others ugly things. Illegalities are in every day here. We should not be surprised.

Unfortunately, sooner or later taxes adjust you so you have to be careful, a good accountant is never too much.

when you start working,when you gamble or whatever you do,you know before how much tax go on something like this,so you cant be suprised after that!we dont have such a big taxes as they or we dont have at all,like in my country (on online gambling,poker,casino),so we have luck in that!

The point is, there have always been people who fooled the tax authorities in united states of america. This has been happening for centuries and people even resorted to murder to get rid of taxes. Few countries can boast decent fairness without great illegalities.

The state cannot be fooled, I think that their mistake is knowing that they will not realize it, well we know that sooner or later things will be known and even in a country like the United States, that everything is attentive to fraud, well I also know Know that the United States has the highest tax rate, that makes many do not want to give for the amount they mean, and this is worse when you have not paid your taxes for many years, that has become very large that it is difficult to pay.

Any country from the world can be fooled and USA is one of leaders with tax fraud. There is always evidence but many of them escape, Until they take the cash out of the market nothing will change. Corrupt people in system falsify documents and escape without being caught...

this model should not be followed by many people, because we have a good chance of being caught and after that will lose more than we hope to gain through this tax evasion. Normalcy is best where we can be caught. When the chances are high to escape then we can commit fraud.

people will make tax evasions or all sorts of other scams because a crisis like Covid 19, an economic one or any other kind, can make people to avoid paying the tax and then they risk their own freedom. This is the situation and everyone proceeds as he wants to be, legally or illegally.
