It’s Time to Stand Up, Speak Out, TAKE ACTION.
In the U.S., tax season officially started in the U.S. at the end of January when the IRS requires employers to send W-2 forms to all employees. Seems simple, but more and more workers who should get a W-2 don’t—because many of those who employ them are cheaters.
The crisis involves various forms of fraud and illegal behavior, and it’s a gigantic problem in construction among large and small contractors on all types of construction projects—including ones you pay for with your taxes. They cheat to win bids and avoid paying their fair share. They do it because it’s been too easy to game the system and avoid getting caught.
It’s so bad that Attorneys-General from 12 states came together to press the federal government to crack down on cheaters. Read it here.
It’s so bad that, just when we need enforcement more than ever, budget cuts and “changed priorities” have slashed enforcement by the IRS—to the point of “collapse.” Read it here.
