If I went over the toll bridge and through the barrier without paying the toll, I would be committing tax evasion. However, if I drive the extra mile outside the city… take the free bridge, I am using a legitimate, logical and suitable method of tax avoidance… For my tax evasion, I should be punished. For my tax avoidance, I should be commended. The tragedy in life is that so few people know that the free bridge even exists.

Former Supreme Court Associate Justice Louis D. Brandeis

Anyone may so arrange his affairs that his taxes shall be as low as possible; he is not bound to choose that pattern which will best pay the Treasury; there is not even a patriotic duty to increase one's taxes.

Judge Learned Hand

You must pay taxes. But there's no law that says you gotta leave a tip.
