So who is the American tax cheat secretly keeping their cash while the rest of us have to pony up? Why do so many people believe that cheating on your taxes is morally ok? From actor Wesley Snipes to a Las Vegas pimp to a middle class couple -- Americans of all kinds have had serious run-ins with the IRS. Squawk Box Anchor Becky Quick investigates how this widespread tax evasion lands businessmen in prison, celebrities in hot water, and citizens in fear and desperation. We'll also meet the law enforcement side of the IRS, CPAs with a gun and a badge that investigate criminal tax evasion with the same zeal that brought down Al Capone. They'll hunt for income in overseas accounts, the secret vaults of criminals and even your checking account. CNBC goes inside the IRS's Forensic lab in Chicago to see how Special Agents use CSI technology to uncover even the most hidden evidence of tax fraud. From celebrities to the working class, no one is immune from an IRS investigator. Whether you think cheating is right or wrong, with hundreds of billions at stake, the IRS has a job to do.
