Shrink information on a sub-report when no data is available

SteveL13 asked

I have a sub-report on a report that looks like this: (confidential information hidden)

Sub-Report Example
The sub-report has a box around it as you can see.  But here is what I need to do.  If, for example, the detail has no Tax ID # or no Main Phone or if any of the fields have no information, hide the label and shrink the data fields vertically including the box around the sub-form.  I do have the fields and the detail section of the sub-report set to Can Grow = Yes and Can Shrink = Yes.

Can this be done?  If so, how?
