Criminal Tax Issues

When someone works in the USA, it’s illegal to not report income. This is especially true for business owners. Business owners have certain allowances and exemptions that can be applied to taxes during the year. But your income must be reported. If you siphon income, misrepresent or misreport it, then an investigation may occur from the IRS. An audit is a potential outcome for any individual or business who gains profits and fails to report them. This can result in criminal tax issues, which may require the help of an attorney.

Being charged with a criminal tax issue can be devastating on your business and personal life. The IRS aggressively prosecuted taxpayers who are involved in illegal activities. Since 2005, statistics show more than half of its investigations are prosecuted. 88% of those prosecutions end in convictions, and 79% of those indicted get prison sentences. Criminal tax issues rarely happen in isolation. There is usually a parallel, civil proceeding, and there are other governmental agency investigations as well. Mounting an effective defense can only be done with the help of an experienced criminal tax attorney.
