Tax avoidance vs. tax evasion? Also, what are the tax avoidance penalties? These questions and many more can cause concerns for individuals. The Experts have provided answers to these complex questions about tax avoidance.

Tax Avoidance is when an individual might apply exemptions and deductions to reduce taxable income, by means that are within the tax law. Tax avoidance is a way that allows legal actions for individuals to try to get their taxes reduced.

Tax evasion is a deliberate effort to not pay taxes which may be in violation of the law. Tax avoidance is to avoid paying taxes with the use of legal means within the law.
