What would happen if i didn't file one of my jobs on my taxes?

I work 2 jobs, one is full time and the other is a part time, I don't even think I make over 8,000 dollars there in a year. I was wondering what would happen if I didn't file them on my taxes, I get less back.

The job will report your earnings, so the IRS will know you lied on your taxes. They may adjust your return, but more likeley you will set yourself up for trouble. If you didn't earn enough to be taxed you won't, but that isn't decided by how much you make at one job, but by how much you make in total... More

If you would get less back why would you leave it off? If you get audited you could face legal problems.

If you are paid cash, you most likely will get away with it. If you are paid by check, you will be caught, fined, and depending on amount owed and length of time frauding the government, could face jail time. Now is it worth it?

Thats a gamble. I did that once totally by mistake. It took them 2 years, but they caught up with me. I now owe the IRS alot of money. I wouldnt do it. You dont want to F* with Big Brother.

If you don't file it, the IRS will still get a copy of the W-2 from your employer, so they'll send you a letter telling you that you omitted part of your income from your return, and tell you how much additional tax you owe and give you a date to pay it by. It can take quite awhile, a year or more, before they find it... More
