The purpose of investigating tax crimes is to promote deterrence from tax cheating. Prosecuting tax evasion is about simple honesty and fair play between citizens that pay their fair share and those that willfully do not.
Revenue shortages resulting from cheating may inevitably influence tax increases on everyone just to maintain the same level of funds for important government services – education, roads, public safety, and medical care. Tax rate increases on everyone for an unfair reason is certainly unjust.
