Wisconsinites Choose Friends over IRS

A new poll shows that most Wisconsinites would not turn in a friend who's cheating on the federal income tax return.

The Badger Poll surveyed 500 residents statewide at random in late March. Twenty-seven percent said they would do nothing if they discovered a friend had cheated on a tax return. And 51% said they would talk to a friend about cheating on taxes, but do nothing more.

However, 16% of all Wisconsin residents said they would report cheating activity to the IRS.

The poll, sponsored by the Milwaukee Journal and the Madison Captial Times, has a margin of error of plus or minus 4%.
