[PC CHANGE/] [13)02. Tax Evasion]

What should be changed: A person, officer, or employee of an organization that fails to pay any appropriate fees or taxes liened against themselves or an agency they are an executive to.
A person who intentionally avoids or attempts to avoid tax or fee payments to the state.
This does not apply for fees that would fall under (4)02. Failure To Pay A Fine.
This charge may only be authorized by the Attorney General or a warrant by the Chief Justice.

Why: Tax evasion is a struggling matter when it comes to CITY and Bureau of Licensing. Business owners often advertise and conduct business activity without a valid business registration. This counts especially for escort agencies who operate without adult entertainment license. The problem occurs when licensing officials take action against these individuals. DOJ (Attorney General/Chief Justice) is not always reachable to authorize the charge, so business owners who tax evade easily get away. If this point of authorization from DOJ is removed or changed to something more efficient, it will make life much easier for licensing officials and hopefully decrease the amount of tax evaders in L.S.



no tax evasion should be happening in game without a prior warrant given its nature of requiring an in-depth report. It will be staying under DOJ/Attorney General authority as well, since it's something they have specialized in handling and just like IRL the CITY should not be charging people, but reaching out to an authority who can charge and issue the warrants.

[PC ADD] [Obstructing the passage of an emergency vehicle]

What should be changed:

Why: There's a growing problem of people purposely blocking an emergency vehicle such as a ambulance trying to enter/exit a scene or a police officer trying to overtake, sometimes obstructing is a harsh charge to add, I think a person or vehicle who fails to yield for an emergency vehicle that has used the megaphone twice to ask it to move and has emergency sirens and lights on should fall subject to a $3,000 fine. [ On an OOC note it's horrible to see the /megaphone spam just to get vehicles to move that fail to simply move to the right, causing time wasted to respond to a scene or let a ambulance pass, this would combat that and enforce road compliance with emergency vehicles, considering ig sirens aren't that loud and don't bring the same sense of everyone looks at you for not moving for the emergency vehicle or frowns upon you for it ]
