Correction
In the January issue of the JofA , a word was mistakenly left out of the graphic on page 90, “ Uncle Sam Wants (to Get) You. ” A line read: “The number of people being pursued for tax evasion rose from a year ago as the federal government stepped up efforts to catch cheats.” It should read: “The number of people being pursued for employment tax evasion rose from a year ago as the federal government stepped up efforts to catch cheats.”
