WASHINGTON - With tax season in full swing, a newly released poll says an overwhelming majority of adults don't believe it is ever OK to cheat on their income taxes, with most citing personal integrity as the biggest reason why.
When asked how much, if any, is an acceptable amount to cheat on your income taxes, 87 percent of respondents said, "not at all." Only 11 percent said, "a little here and there" or "as much as possible."
Ninety-five percent said personal integrity influences them to honestly report their taxes, while 63 percent said fear of an audit did.
The telephone poll of 1,500 randomly chosen adults was sponsored by the Internal Revenue Service Oversight Board. It was conducted from Aug. 30 to Sep. 17 by GfK Roper Public Affairs and Corporate Communications.
