    .....Illegally dodge paying taxes and get away with it, would you?

    I can be quite an honest guy so this would be a difficult decision.

    It would all depend on my financial position. If I was living confortably then I wouldn't risk it but if I was struggling then hell yes.

    Since I'm doing well at the moment I'd say no, I would pay them fairly.

    In my current position yes but if I was in a better position then definitely not. I am also a very honest person and would find it difficult to do something like that.
    I know the guilty feeling would never leave me.

    Same thing as both of you, I don't know if I would be able to do it, because I would always think about deep down when someone would talk about taxes and such. So it would be a hard decision to make in my opinion.

    I dont think i would be comfortable doing that.
    I would be scared of getting caught out 24/7, wouldnt be able to live normally for fear of getting caught.

    Most likely not. As WD said, I have bad luck, and I'm sure I would get caught.

    I just found out this morning that the "prizes" we win here at work (such as gift cards) will now be included in our income. I think that's bs.

    Well, the whole point of the original question was that you would get away with it - somehow, it was guaranteed you wouldn't get caught. So it doesn't matter how good or bad your luck is.

    Personally, I don't think I would. Although part of the reason I'd be tempted is the hassle, not just the money.

    I have found that nothing in life is guaranteed.

    I would only do it if I was in a position which I needed to, otherwise I wouldn't.

    I don't think I would. I've been brought up knowing honesty is the best policy.
