Ethics Discussion

Is it ethical to pay a vendor in cash in order to get a substantial discount (e.g. 25%) even when one has a pretty good guess the vendor is accepting the cash and giving the discount in order to cheat on taxes and perhaps other laws?  Ignore the business reliability questions this raises (e.g. if one thinks the vendor is cheating Uncle Sam, doesn’t this make it more likely he will also cheat me?).   Just pure ethics — how responsible might one be for this vendor’s illegal actions, and if one is, how sure would one have to be that the vendor has illegal intentions for this responsibility to cut in.
