A new survey has found 53% of Canadians wouldn't tell on someone they know who is cheating on their taxes.
But the survey for H&R Block also found 72% of respondents said they would be honest themselves and notify the Canada Revenue Agency if there was an error in their favour.
The online survey of 1,501 Canadian adults found 20% of those polled know a tax cheat. Men were more likely than women to know someone who has cheated on their taxes, while 60% of men aged 55 or older said they wouldn't snitch on that person.
The survey was conducted Sept. 3 to 5 using Leger's online panel. The findings have a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points, 19 times out of 20.
