White Collar Crimes Are On The Rise – Protect Yourself With Spodek Law Group


As the world becomes ever increasingly flat, white collar crimes are becoming increasingly sophisticated. Creating an offshore company used to be reserved for high net-worth individuals seeking to avoid taxes. However, with the rise of companies like createoffshorecompany.com, more and more business owners are creating offshore companies. To make matters worse, bankers, lawyers, and accountants are now helping business owners to set up these companies in order to hide money from tax authorities. In fact, a test conducted in October 2013, revealed that more than half of the offshore service providers tested gave advice that wouldn’t stand up to scrutiny. Don’t let yourself be caught in this trap – choose Spodek Law Group to help you navigate the complexities of tax law.

The Dangers of Offshore Companies

One of the schemes that has come to light involves a Canadian-Swiss banker and his plan for hiding undeclared cash in Switzerland using a method that, according to a panel of experts consulted by CBC News, is virtually “untraceable”. This type of activity is essentially money laundering and can lead to severe penalties, including imprisonment. Unfortunately, many offshore service providers are recommending these types of tactics to their clients. Spodek Law Group believes in providing ethical and legal solutions for our clients. We will never recommend an activity that could put you in legal jeopardy.

Tax Shelters: The Good and The Bad

Creating a tax shelter through an offshore company is not illegal, but it all depends on how it is done. Tax shelters can be a great asset, as they help reduce your taxable income. The best tax shelter is to use sound tax planning strategies and think of your business as a way to rightfully reduce taxes. This approach requires you to keep accurate records, such as receipts and checks, to ensure proper write-offs can be made. Spodek Law Group has extensive experience in tax planning and can help you structure your business in a way that maximizes your tax benefits.

IRS Investigations

If you use an offshore company to avoid taxes, you may be subject to an investigation by the IRS. If the IRS suspects criminal intent, they may deploy the Criminal Investigation Division (CID). The CID conducts a thorough investigation and has the right to contact friends, employers, co-workers, neighbors, and even the spouse of the suspected criminal. In order to prove and convict you, the IRS will attempt to show that you knowingly attempted to evade the tax system. Spodek Law Group has years of experience in handling IRS investigations and will work tirelessly to protect your rights.

Tax Evasion and Filing a False Tax Return

Tax evasion is a broad category that includes cheating on taxes owed to the government. This is a felony and carries up to 5 years in prison and/or fines up to $250,000. Filing a false tax return occurs when a taxpayer has listed false information on the tax return as a fact. This is also a felony and can carry up to a 3 year prison sentence and/or up to $250,000 in fines. If you find yourself facing these charges, don’t wait. Contact Spodek Law Group immediately for a free consultation.
