If we decide whether someone goes to jail by presenting the jury with evidence and them deciding if a law was broken, why can't we do the same with CFOs and blatantly tax-evading tax returns?

There's a difference between evading (breaking the tax laws) and avoiding (taking advantage of loopholes). Avoidance is legal and does not need a jury. That's for the tax office to decide, according to their own rules.
