All of the people who are flying under the IRS radar by getting paid in cash will instantly become tax payers! Waiters, drug dealers, illegal immigrants, all will become part of the tax system. Yes, even the kid down the street that cuts your grass becomes a taxpayer. when he spends the money on a new Xbox game and double McCheeses he pays the fairtax!
