Law and Order: Tax Squad
By David Cay Johnston

Criminal tax prosecutions in fiscal 2012 were down 44 percent from 1992, according to Justice Department data posted by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse. If you control for population growth, the drop in prosecutions is 54 percent. On the corporate side, additional taxes and penalties recommended after audit are down 11 percent in real terms over the same 21 years.
