Have you ever cheated the taxman?

Have you ever not declared earnings, left money in a hidden account, or not paid tax when you should? It is of course a crime, and being cracked down on ever more harshly. How widespread is tax evasion?

A. Undeclared/Hidden substantial sums (10,000s). 216 votes (4 %)
B. Undeclared/Hidden big sums (1,000s). 439 votes (9 %)
C. Undeclared/Hidden some cash (100s). 852 votes (17 %)
D. Undeclared/Hidden small cash (less than 100). 801 votes (16 %)
E. Nothing ever. I declare every penny. 2,613 votes (53 %)

We try to use technology to limit voting to one per person. Occasionally, this may erroneously block a few people's votes (eg, from shared offices). Apologies for that.
