Welcome to the Night Stand, where we realize the irony of appearing on television simply to decry its contents.
Tonights topic comes from the NY Times Magazine, "should i turn in my tax cheating business partner?"
Lets take a peak at whats going on.
My partner and i work in the marijuana industry, which has been legal in my state for almost two years. Nevertheless, he has worked under the table during that time, earning tens of thousands of dollars and not paying taxes on it..
Now that the business is legal, he doesn’t have the excuse that he can’t report his income because you business is underground. Whether that was ever a very good excuse depends in part on whether it was wrong to ban the marijuana trade. But only in part. In general, we ought to obey even ill-conceived laws until we can get them changed. Either way, that issue is now moot and you're being faced with legal issues for not nipping it in the "bud" from the get go when it became legal.
