If you don't want to pay some more
The deadline to file federal income taxes was yesterday. Many, however, are not subject to the annual shakedown. Studies estimate that about 44% of US households will not pay any taxes to the feds this year.
Less than one in six of non-payers earns no income. Most of the rest do but take advantage of legal tax breaks.

The tax man chooses his targets with discrimination.
