It’s estimated that $450 billion in tax revenue is lost every year due to tax fraud – and that’s a serious problem. However, if you think this problem doesn’t affect you, think again.
When employers don’t pay the proper wages, taxes, and insurances for their employees they are stealing from our communities. Those taxes represent money that could help fix our bridges, build schools, reduce class size, take care of our veterans and shore up the social safety net. That’s money that could create jobs, shore up our infrastructure and make our countries stronger for everyone. That’s money that belongs to all of us as taxpayers—and it should be used for the public good. So if employers are breaking the law and not paying their fair share, who picks up the bill?
