WASHINGTON- Most American adults say in a new poll its not okay to cheat on their income taxes, with most citing personal integrity as the reason why. The telephone poll of 1,500 randomly selected adults was done by the IRS Oversight Board. When asked, if any, is an acceptable amount to cheat on income taxes, 87% said "not at all." Eleven percent said "a little here and there" or "as much as possible." Sixty-three percent said they feared an audit if they did but 95% said personal integrity influences them to honestly fill out their tax returns.
