The most likely Americans to commit tax evasion are young males who are single, according to a recent poll.

A total of 15 percent of Americans admitted to evading taxes, while 64 percent of that group were men, according to a survey by DDB Worldwide Communications Group. Of the people who admitted to cheating the Internal Revenue Service, 55 percent were 45 and younger, and 35 percent were single, according to CNNMoney.

"Their willingness to cheat is not limited to their taxes but spans a wide range of situations and behavior where they are looking to get away with something," James Lou, DDB's chief strategist, told the news source.

Many people that cheat the tax system have a habit of taking part in other unethical activities, Lou added.

A large number of tax evaders, 73 percent, worked under the table, while only 20 percent of those who did not cheat, admitted to the same practice, the news source said. The poll also discovered that no particular income bracket attempts to cheat the IRS; there are evaders across the board.
