State is one of human construction, in need of resources for services offered, to finance the costs of public services available. Increasing the cost of services provided has the effect of increased taxation. Tax evasion is a condemnable act. It is not possible a combination of legal proceedings to obtain maximum benefits, but is reprehensible act, aware of the harm of others. Tax evasion have 2 facets: a lawful and an unlawful, or tax fraud. In our opinion, law does not allow evasion but rather helps the subject to tax in not reaching the area of tax evasion.
