Chicago Tax Cheats Beware City Wants you to Pay Up and Will Use Snitches to Get it Done.

Chicago tax scofflaw be aware the city is coming for you with a twist. They are ready to pay people to rat you out if you owe back taxes. The city is calling it a “tax whistle blower” program that will pit neighbor versus neighbor on business scene.

City hall will pay cold hard cash to these informants based on a percentage of  what the tax cheating businesses owe to the city.

“It’s just another way of bringing people into compliance,” Revenue Department spokesman Ed Walsh told the Sun-Times.

“It would probably be … a business knowing that a competitor is not remitting a tax. An employee [of the tax-dodging business] could know that, too. Typically, you need to provide some type of incentive.”
