  •  chris, yes you do have to be illegal to cheat (0+ / 0-)

    Cheating on your taxes specifically means not following the code, which is a violation of the law. Using every possible means, within the current code, to lower your taxes is not cheating in any way. There is a great quote from a progressive appellate court federal judge on this specific point. When I arrive home I'll add it as another comment. His major point is that there is no such thing as a moral duty to pay one penny more than the law requires, and I agree.
