tax checks - can they be returned

In a strange turn of events people who were honest and paid their due taxes may or may not get a refund. Whereas people who did not send a check will not have to pay a tax.

It seems to be the case sometimes that those who are honest get the short straw and those who wait for the longest and don't just pay up are penalized.

I would consider myself in the honest group. And I know I've sometimes paid more tax than I could have got away with. When I had a tax audit I was very pleased that I had not pushed it.

Sometimes I don't claim for legitimate things if I consider it not ok ethically. My choice. Others would claim breathing as a tax deduction if they thought they could get away with it.
