A German-language article on the topic of defraudation of taxes in Italy : http://www.spiegel.de/wirtschaft/soz…811486,00.html
Done not only by millionaires, but by almost everyone !

A quote from there (translated by me) :

"Because a lot paid too few or nothing at all, those who couldn't protect themselves from the grip of the state, no matter whether Fiat worker [Fiat is a car building company] or elementary school teacher, had to pay more and more."

I think this is why the loads of taxes in the U.S. are probably so high . Because no-one pays enough - in general. and that includes Millionaires, because they usually have the best lawyers who can work out the best tricks to elude paying taxes …

And when defraudation of taxes becomes a kind of mass sport, then everyone is suffering from it !

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
