Bogus Tax Gap
I have often explained how the stories of a Tax Gap in this country are nothing more than propaganda intended to bolster calls for more enforcement power for IRS. My own investigations into how the supposed undercollected tax amounts are calculated had the IRS admitting that the numbers are pure guestimates.
The National Taxpayer Union has an interesting debunking of a recent book on this topic, which you can find here.
