Tax evasion is a very serious crime because if everyone committed tax fraud, the federal and state government would not have money to provide Americans with the collective good services to keep us safe, such as police, fire, and more. While only a very few Americans are ever prosecuted for tax evasion (in 2015, only 1,330 taxpayers out of 150 million who paid taxes were indicted), if you are one of those or you face an IRS audit, you could end up in jail.
