What are your thoughts?My two cents....There are lots of regulations and procedures currently in place to control fraud and other crimes. However, I don't think any of us want government bureaucracy to become any more omnipresent (or ridiculous) than it already is. A part of the solution is for the "we, the people" portion of government to take more responsibility. No one wants to be a snitch, but when someone is doing something wrong, we each have a responsibility to talk to that person or talk to someone else who will talk to that person.(This is along the same lines as all the bullying advice--most people will back down if someone tells them to. Those who don't, you report to a teacher or other authority. There is a certain amount of risk, but since we all claim that our freedom/rights/country are worth fighting and dying for....)Certainly there are plenty of gray areas--most of those it's probably better to say nothing if you aren't pretty sure. But there are far too many totally obvious things that individuals choose to ignore. (Child abuse is the biggy that comes to my mind, but I don't work in the tax arena.)Kathleen
