What is Tax Evasion? Tax evasion is the illegal evasion of taxes by individuals, corporations and trusts. Tax evasion often entails taxpayers deliberately misrepresenting the true state of their affairs to the tax authorities to reduce their tax liability and includes dishonest tax reporting, such as declaring less income, profits or gains than the amounts actually earned, or overstating deductions.
Tax evasion is an activity commonly associated with the informal economy. One measure of the extent of tax evasion (the "tax gap") is the amount of unreported income, which is the difference between the amount of income that should be reported to the tax authorities and the actual amount reported.
In contrast, tax avoidance is the legal use of tax laws to reduce one's tax burden. Both tax evasion and avoidance can be viewed as forms of tax noncompliance, as they describe a range of activities that intend to subvert a state's tax system, although such classification of tax avoidance is not indisputable, given that avoidance is lawful, within self-creating systems.

"Nigeria - the Epitome of Gall"
Fiduciaries of the Nigerian government an oxymoron if there ever was one are desperately claiming that 700,000 Companies have illegally poached profits away from the Nigerian Federal Inland Revenue Service (“FIRS”).
Swindlers, cheaters and thieves have nothing on the Nigerian Government, says David Selig of Selig & Associates. Nigeria’s highly questionable allegations are being made in the shadow of falling oil prices and years of unprecedented financial mismanagement.
Nigeria’s financial recession has metastasized into a full-blown depression, says Selig. And now that oil prices are plummeting and emails from Nigeria are being routed directly into spam, the entire economy is taking a shellacking.
In response to the shortfall, Tunde Fowler (the Executive Chairperson of Nigeria's Federal Inland Revenue Service) said he expected 10 million new taxpayers to start paying into the system. But to date, Mr. Fowler’s grandiose extrapolations have not materialized. Nigeria’s economy is in the toilet and our “new taxes” (which is a Sanskrit for email enterprise) aren’t living up to their potential. Conversely, the Nigerian citizenry says that unrestrained chicanery and tinseled explanations are to blame. They’re taking on water, said a Somali pirate, and not even the old Wumi Abdul Nigerian email scam can save the ship.
The Honorable Mr. Fowler also said: “There were plans to twin tougher enforcement with a waiver on interest and penalties for the period 2012 through 2015. We will give them a 45-day window to come forward and register and that will make them eligible for that waiver. The government, is struggling to fund a record 6.06 trillion naira ($18.6 billion) 2016 budget that aimed to stimulate growth by tripling capital expenditure, set FIRS a target of raising 4.95 trillion naira in taxes, up from 3.73 trillion last year.”
