People who do this more likely to face tax audits

Most people in Connecticut will never be audited. In 2019, only .45% of all taxpayers, nationally, faced tax audits.

However, people who do this one thing are more likely to be audited, and that one thing is: make a lot of money.

Why tax evasion is such a big deal?
