Good To Know: Tax Evasion & Tax Avoidance

To keep it simple--- think of it this way: Tax avoidance is the maneuvering to avoid the tax liability in the first place.  The tax does not exist, because in a legal sense, no income, profit or gain ever existed.  Tax evasion is maneuvering to avoid the payment of a tax liability that has already been created.  The tax exists because the income, profit or gain already exists.  To avoid paying the tax is a criminal act.
