Those are quite the false equivalencies. The issue of jail itself is only for the most extreme cases. Often it is more like getting a bad credit rating, and debt collectors after you.

Could you explain this and give examples of "more like getting a bad credit rating" and "debt collectors after you" in regard to taxes? I haven't heard that before.
replied 402d
That is the normal experience. I think the IRS is harsher than the Canadian CRA, but often they work as debt collectors instead as well.

I have an uncle who owes about 2 million in unpaid taxes froma business he owned. He has had credit is the consequence. He doesn't get given any form of tax return anymore.

That was vague gibberish to me. Did it affect his credit score?
Is he able to get credit cards? Take out a loan?
replied 401d
No he can't. His credit rating has tanked. Any tax return just gets deducted from the balance owing.

Where does he live?
How was he avoiding theft by the IRS?

Not the IRS, the Canada Revenue Agency. He lives in a trailer on a farm and helps manage the property now. He also works a security business.
