The top sliver of high-income Americans dodge significantly more in income taxes than the Internal Revenue Service's methods had previously assumed, according to forthcoming estimates from IRS researchers and academic economists. Research on tax avoidance and evasion can be difficult and imprecise because it requires seeing what has been intentionally hidden.

The authors include John Guyton and Patrick Langetieg of the IRS, Max Risch of Carnegie Mellon University and Gabriel Zucman, a University of California, Berkeley economist who has advocated an annual wealth tax.

"The government can prevent a very sharp but short recession from becoming a long-lasting depression," they say.
