What do I do about my significant other's friend who takes cash under the table and pays no taxes, but calls us "suckers" that do pay them?

One of my significant other's friend runs a business that takes "cash under the table" and brags about his nice new toys, and teases us about what suckers we are that we have to pay taxes. This infuriates me. What do I do?

My SO has a friend that runs a business out of his garage and takes cash only so he doesn't have to pay taxes. He is constantly throwing it in our faces that we can't afford the nice things he has because we are suckers that have to pay taxes. He works at his primary job that does take taxes out of his paycheck, but everything he makes on his side job goes for his new truck, boat, and nice vacations. I have to work my tail off for what I do have and it's discouraging to look at my check after all of the taxes come out. I do realize some of it has to do with jealousy on my part because I don't have all of those brand new extras he has, but this "sucker" at least lives honestly and pays her taxes. I have thought about turning him into the IRS, but I don't know how to go about doing this, and I also have guilt about being a "narc" and karma will come back to bite me. In the mean time, this eats away at me. What do I do?
