Re: Congrats to Tim...@YAAC
Everyone commits criminal activity. The person most recently illegally killed by the NYPD was selling individual cigarattes on the street - hardly a clear and present danger to the people of NY.
Suppose the same broken window had applied on Wall St. Everyone over claiming a home-office deduction, putting more than 3 meals a day on expenses when travelling or claiming mileage for a visit to a client starting from home instead of from the office - had been arrested, subsequently lost their job and possibly been chocked to death. then there might have been a different opinion on it's "success"
It might also have reduced the level of financial crimes. After all if you claim tax back on a coffee you might be willing to rig the libor rate!
