Strategic Defense Against Tax Fraud Allegations
Deliberately falsifying income information is not the only way to fall into tax fraud charges or be targeted in an investigation. Believing that evading taxes was somehow justifiable is also common, but it is not a valid defense before state or federal tax agencies. Avoidance of taxation responsibility can lead a private individual or business owner to prison, even if tax evasion tactics were not willful. If you have received a threatening notice from the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) or any federal or state tax authority, you must take your legal situation seriously.
Turning to a well-respected financial crime defense attorney is a critical step after you have been charged with tax fraud or evasion or have realized that you are under investigation.
