Reporting a tax cheater(not declaring rent as income)?
Asked by: samserio
I have this guy who doesn’t declare rent as income.(Actually, I’ve lived with him, details in my other questions)
And, I’m wondering if I should report him.
I’ve paid him over two years totaling about $ 16,000, and, considering the other renter, it totals about twice of it.
I’m thinking of reporting to IRS, but, I’ve read a article that IRS is not actually interested in small cheaters, small cases like this.
Can I have your suggestions?
I actually don’t know his details either except for his name. He told me he worked as an insurance agent when I met him, but I don’t know if he does right now.
I once sent him a check, but only once. Others are cash without receipt.
Another is I recorded my conversation with him, in which he said he didn’t write a receipt because he didn’t deal with taxes. Does this count?
Isn’t his refusal to sign a rent receipt also a proof?
