When nobody cheats, everybody wins


NARRATOR: So, you just had your roof re-shingled

It sure looks great!

And you saved some money by paying cash under the table.

Who's it going to hurt, right?

When any business activity goes unreported, or under-reported, it hurts us all.

That honest local business down the street can't make a go of it against competitors who skirt the rules.

The shady dealings of the underground economy also mean that taxpayers who don't cheat, end up paying more to support the tax-funded programs we all rely on.

What's the big deal about working under the table or off the books?

Well, it's costing Canadians billions of dollars, including you.

When nobody cheats, everybody wins.

Do the right thing.

Don't participate in the underground economy
