"it is morally reprehensible to avoid as much tax as humanly possible"

So are you paying MORE than you have to? The next logical step to your morality argument is that if you are a good upstanding citizen you should be happy to give over more than you need to.

Ive argued again and again that morality doesn't come into it.. I assure you what I consider to be perfectly acceptable by morals is very different to yours, and yours are very different to the guy next to you. Where tax is concerned the only thing that matters is the law.

Am I paying all the tax I *LEGALLY* have to pay? Yes.

If I told you what % this was would you think it moral? Probably not.

But then Im fairly sure you could tell someone on minimum wage how much you make an hour compared to them and they would think that immoral too.
