Cheating on Taxes

Tonight on my way home from work I stopped by a small tax services business, trying to get my taxes done early. The one-man shop is run by a CPA accountant who is a former IRS auditor.

He basically encouraged me to cheat on my taxes in order to get a better return. (And no, I'm not going to have my taxes done with him.)

He then added: "I do taxes for about 20 pastors in the area"--that is, in Wheaton--"and every single one of them cheats on his taxes."
