    Hey BHW gang,

    So I've been discretely applying for new jobs as a Project Manager recently (I even applied for one SEO job even though that's a passive thing for me hehe) and took time off work for a break. The reason why I am looking for new work is that my boss is consistently late with payment, almost out of sheer laziness (you have to remind him the day before in order to get payed on time).

    Anyway, a fellow employee of mine just told me that he is legitimately thinking of committing tax evasion of $xx,xxx in which he owes (I remember when they calculated it last week, but apparently he's floating this by the poor book keeper).

    I am essentially one-foot out the door, but I'm conflicted to what exactly to do. I was planning to take next week off as an impromptu F-U to him whilst the Projects overwhelm the company, but now the charity side of me feels like stepping in and talking him out of eventually doing real jail time.

    He might have delayed your salary but atleast he did pay right? Leave him to his business especially if you are one foot out already. No point getting yourself involved in shady things such as this.. who knows, you might piss him off well enough that he would make things hard for you, especially if your potential new employee wants a reference from your old workplace

    When a small business considers tax fraud, it usually means it's their only option aside from going out of business. Don't snitch either way, but if you don't have a solid job lined up, just sit tight and get paid.

    In Pakistan if someone is paying the tax then its considered taboo.
    I would say just leave him to his course.

    Sometimes happens when revenge has no boundary, and you can go any lenght, but this is not that case, just let him do what he wants and dont think about reporting him.

    Honestly, if it was me, I'd pull him off to the side and advise him to try and find a way to pay the tax. I was going to say that 'Uncle Sam' really is very persistent in getting 'his' money but then realized that you really didn't specify a country and you posted in early morning my time - so unless you were up in the middle of the night, you aren't from 'this side of the pond'. ;)

    In either case, make sure you remind him that tax evasion could very likely cost him real jail time and that if he is in this situation, it may be time to sell or close the business completely before he digs himself an even deeper hole.
    Oh and yea... nows a good time to be looking heavily into another job. It very much looks like the ship you're on is sinking.

    Mind your own business. Reporting others is just disgusting. And you have nothing to gain by doing that btw.

    Although he has paid you late, and he's lazy - has HAS paid you.

    Id advice you just mind your own business and leave him.

    I hate a snitch.

    As long as he's been paying, you shouldn't report. Also keep a look out for another job.

    On second thought: Why don't you give him a hand?
    FACT: The IRS takes a "direct and unapportioned tax" from the American population. It is absolutely illegal (see 16th amendment) and is the biggest fraud in the entirety of the World.
    Don't take my word for it. Do your own research.

    Assuming you're in the U.S........He won't do jail time for not paying payroll taxes (it sounds like that's the case). At least not upfront. One way or another though, he will pay it. They are RUTHLESS (and rightfully so) about payroll taxes and will liquidate the company if necessary to get it.

    I'd STFU and find a new job ASAP. It's not like he doesn't know he's doing it. Stupid is as stupid does. So don't be stupid. GTFO as fast as you can. After that....Well then you can bring the rain if you like. You probably won't have to though. They WILL get their money.
