10. How legitimate are the claims by "tax experts" that you don't have to pay income taxes?
Not at all. These con artists can be convincing, but they are not legit. Constitutional arguments against the tax laws are routinely dismissed by courts, and their proponents are fined or jailed. More sophisticated scams involve multiple family trusts, limited partnerships, and credit cards issued by offshore banks. While these schemes can confuse and slow down the IRS, they are bogus, period.
