Have You Ever Stollen From Your Kid’s Piggy Bank?

This seems fairly obvious, and now it’s official . . . if you’re the kind of person who makes up tons of lies when you’re doing your taxes, you’re probably the kind of person who has trouble being moral in other aspects of life, too.

A new survey by DDB Worldwide Communications Group tried to figure out the profile of the average tax cheat.  Here’s what they found.

He’d even steal from his kids.  28% of tax cheats say they’d steal money from their kid’s piggy bank, versus 3% of non-cheats.

The tax cheat is probably a man. 64% of the people who admit to cheating on their taxes are male.

He’s probably younger.  55% are under age 45.

He has a grotesque sense of entitlement. Tax cheats were FAR more likely than non-cheats to agree with the statements “I’m an overall better person” than the average person and “I’m special and deserve to be treated that way.”

He doesn’t show ethics anywhere. Tax cheats are more likely to keep the extra money if a cashier gives them the wrong change . . . pretend a friend is a former boss for a reference check . . . and keep a $20 bill they SEE someone drop.

He’s probably living paycheck to paycheck. 42% of tax cheats say they’re one paycheck away from DISASTER, versus 29% of non-tax cheats.
