    I don't know your specific situation, and perhaps you have thought it through and your risks are low. But in general, some things to think about: It's typically reasonably low-cost to pay your taxes. It's a chunk, but it's part of the cost of doing business (psychologically - helps if you don't think of it as 'your' money in the first place - think of it as the gov't's money, that you are temporarily holding). And here's why - the COST if if you get caught will be high - monetarily, possibly jail term, and it's like herpes - once you are on the tax dept's radar for not paying, they will never go away. Now: maybe you don't get caught. But you will ALWAYS worry about - is tomorrow the day? But like I said - maybe you are very low risk, it's up to you. But for me, it's why I always pay it all.

    i lost my job and pple in my situation go run to ask for gov help, which i did not since 2 yrs i am in this fucking situation. I rely on adsense to pay my rent and it is fucking hard fo me. I started with one dollar a day , but at that time i was working ...and now i am making about 900 dollars, a month, and work damn hard for pennies but still, i am asking nothing from no one. I carry on scalling up what i am doing and when i will feel that i have to declare anything, i ll leave for another place

    Avoision is more like a slang word. You would never find it in a dictionary, but it is used.

    Oh, and if you want to look up a good example of avoision, just look at what Google has done the past few years in terms of avoiding taxes (legally).

    Was thinking of starting a similar thread, as I've recently got to the stage where you can call this a business and I should be coughing up my taxes. Still weighing up my options - go legit as a registered business or move to a tax haven.
