Apparently so, at least according to this News & Observer article.
But it also may represent a fraying of the great American commitment to voluntary tax compliance. The state must figure out how to get a better handle on this problem.
The definition of the word voluntary includes “without valuable consideration or legal obligation.” Oh, and the word compliance means, in part, “conformity in fulfilling official requirements.”
So the very term “voluntary tax compliance” is itself contradictory.
