Criminal Law Questions? Ask a Criminal Lawyer.
I understand that there are no laws regarding a male dressing as a female. But if someone creates a name that doesn't exist (no SS#, no identification, no birthcertificate etc) then does business under this name there has got to be some other criminal offense other than simple tax evasion? How about identity fraud?
They are doing it on a cash only.
So you are telling me that people can go out there..make up a fictitious name and create a cash only business and this is legal?? NOWAY
So businesses can operate in AMERICA, on a cash only basis, not registered and not pay tax and there is no legal course anyone can take against them?
So a person doesn't have to have a business license? or a state license? to operate?
So how does one report or go after this person for tax evasion?
photography, makeovers, BDSM etc...
I find it extremely difficult to believe that a person can create "fictitious name and character" and do business and there is no criminal about that? I can't sign someone else's name to anything or do business as someone else....thats would be fraud.
