Overview

Who among us isn't sick of seeing the money we earn stolen by the spendthrifts and warmongers in Washington? Bill Wilson describes how many folks, a lot like you and me, are working under the table - and keeping their own money. Wilson describes many ways of getting around the heavy money-grubbing hand of the government.

Beginning with a brief history of the IRS, and how it went from repealing taxes unless needed to the gluttonous monster today's IRS has become, Wilson also gives examples of how the government destroys incentive and ensures that tax laws make it possible for Washington to become the drunken sailor spender it is - and will continue to be.

Using examples of what has happened to people who have fallen victim to the IRS, he delves into what you should consider when under the table income presents itself. From boarding houses and dominatrixes to flea markets, roadside merchants and exotic dancers, Wilson describes many ways that Americans are keeping Big Brother's hand out of their pockets.

If you are like the dozens of ordinary people in this book, you are very fed up with the callous and casual way the money you earn is going to line the pockets of politicos and their corporate cronies. The underground economy is not for everyone. Is it for you? Read Under the Table and Into Your Pocket and see for yourself.
