Since when did tax planning become so objectionable?

What income will they be looking at exactly. Is it everything reported on your income tax return (interest income, dividends, rent etc.) as well as wages from employment.

Curious, because my son doesn't work, but receives a small income from CD's and now has his condo rented and living with me. (No earned income)
