Los Angeles Tax Fraud Lawyers

Los Angeles Tax Fraud Lawyers

Tax fraud is a huge legal issue. According to the Internal Revenue Service, the amount of unreported income is at least $100 billion annually. The Federal Bureau of Investigation estimates that the amount of fraud within the United States is between $300 billion and $600 billion.

To combat this crime, the IRS uses a wide variety of methods to detect fraud. Intrusive audits, which allow the IRS access to personal financial information, are among the most common ways the IRS detects fraud.

Intrusive audits are audits that allow agents to review bank statements, credit card statements, and other financial records. The agents may also review tax returns, employment records, and other personal records. If the agents find something suspicious, they may question you about the information.

The agents may also ask your friends, family, and neighbors about your income and spending habits. They may even contact your employer to confirm your income and work history. Agents may also conduct surveillance, such as following you around or watching your home.

The IRS is not the only government agency that conducts intrusive audits, however. The FBI, the Social Security Administration, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, and many other agencies also conduct intrusive audits.

If you are subject to one of these audits, you may want to consult with an experienced attorney. An experienced attorney may be able to help you respond to the audit and protect your rights.

Each year, the government loses hundreds of billions of dollars to tax fraud, according to The Boston Globe.

Wealthy taxpayers are especially prone to committing tax fraud. This is because they have a lot more to hide and can afford to hire experts to help them hide it. In one example, a wealthy accountant was recently indicted for filing fraudulent taxes. He created fake businesses and even issued fake employees to his wealthy clients.

The U.S. is not alone in having a tax fraud problem. Tax fraud is a problem across the globe.

According to the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development, the global average tax gap is 13 percent of all taxes due. In the U.S., the tax gap is 10 percent. Some countries have significantly higher tax gaps than the global average.

The UK’s tax gap is 20 percent, and Italy’s tax gap is 26 percent.

The OECD estimates that tax fraud costs global economies as much as $255 billion a year. If you think that tax fraud is just a problem in the U.S., think again.

It’s a global problem that is costing taxpayers hundreds of billions of dollars each year.

Some of the fraud is committed by the wealthy, but the vast majority of taxpayers are honest. If you think that tax fraud is a victimless crime, it’s not.

The cost of tax fraud is passed on to honest taxpayers. Taxpayers have to pay more to make up for the lost revenue. That’s why it’s important to fight tax fraud.

You have to know how to fight tax fraud. The IRS is cracking down on those who fail to pay their taxes. You can fight tax fraud with these tips.

1. Don’t Lie

When you file your taxes, be honest. Don’t lie about anything. Don’t fudge your numbers. Don’t hide income. Don’t mislead auditors. Don’t hide money. Don’t falsify documents. Don’t do anything that could be construed as tax fraud. This is the best way to fight tax fraud.

2. Use a Tax Preparer

Tax preparers are legally required to report tax fraud. They can’t ignore it. If a tax preparer suspects tax fraud, they must report it to the IRS.

3. Pay Your Taxes

If you’re in the U.S. and you have an obligation to pay taxes, pay them. Don’t play games. Don’t try to hide money or withhold information. Don’t attempt to evade taxes. Don’t try to cheat the system. If you’re in the U.S. and you’re required to pay taxes, pay your taxes. If you don’t, you’re breaking the law.

4. File Accurately

If you use a tax preparer, make sure they file your taxes accurately. If you do it yourself, make sure you file it accurately. If you don’t, you’re breaking the law. The IRS publishes guidelines to help taxpayers accurately file. If you don’t follow the guidelines, you’re breaking the law.

5. Report Changes

The IRS requires taxpayers to report changes. If your income, deductions, exemptions, or credits change, you’re required to report it. Make sure you report any changes. If you don’t, you’re breaking the law.

6. Pay on Time

If you owe taxes, pay them on time. If you don’t, you’re breaking the law. If you’re late, you can face penalties and interest.

7. File on Time

If you’re required to file, do so on time. If you don’t, you’re breaking the law. You may face penalties and interest. If you don’t file on time, the IRS may assess penalties and interest. In some cases, you may be charged criminal penalties.

8. Get an Extension

If you can’t file on time, you can request an extension. The IRS allows you to file your taxes up to six months after the deadline. You can get an extension by filing Form 4868. You must file Form 4868 electronically or on paper by the regular deadline.

The extension allows you to file your taxes at least six months after the deadline. You must pay your taxes by April 15, even if you file for an extension.

9. Report Changes on Form 1099

If you earn more than $600 in interest, you should receive a Form 1099 from the bank where your money is deposited. If you earn more than $10,000 in interest, you should receive a Form 1099 from the bank or the brokerage. If you don’t receive a Form 1099, you should request one.

The IRS requires taxpayers to pay taxes on money they earn. If you don’t receive a Form 1099, it can be difficult to pay the taxes you owe. If you’re not required to file, you may not know you owe taxes.

If you have a 1099, you can deduct the interest you earn on your taxes. Make sure you get Form 1099-INT from your bank. If you don’t receive a Form 1099-INT, contact your bank or brokerage.

10. Use an Authorized IRS e-file Provider

Make sure you e-file your tax return. Don’t use a company that isn’t authorized to e-file your return. E-filing is the most accurate way to file. It also helps ensure your return is processed quickly.

I was hesitant to hire the Spodek Law Group. I read reviews and knew they have a great reputation. However, I thought I would spend money and not see or speak to my attorney. From the beginning to end of my case Todd and the entire staff were available and willing to help. We worked towards and end result that was way above my expectation and Todd delivered. I am forever grateful for patience and long days and night spent working on my case. Thanks Todd and the entire team!

I'm very satisfied with the services rendered by Todd, Alex and Mary Lou. I whole heartedly recommend Spodek Law Group . I've worked with and have retained other attorneys in the past with Todd's firm being the cream of the crop for many reasons. A very serious legal matter was resolved after a year's hard work and effort. Todd expertly guided me through the process and was able to navigate and make the good journey bearable as well as successful. Mary Lou initially provided excellent assistance before referring my case to Todd. Alex's support was effective and timely. The customer portal (MyCase) is an invaluable communication tool that also kept track of my case. Various aspects of my case were explained and there were several options provided but I made the final decision of how the case would be handled. The legal fee was reasonable considering the effort and amount of work plus it was a flat fee regardless of the length of time required to conclude my case. Todd made himself available to me and we had many scheduled meetings to go over the progress and to discuss the next steps. I felt more confident after many discussions with him. You will not go wrong choosing Spodek Law Group for legal matters.

Being that it was the first time that I was in need of an attorney, I was afraid and hesitant and knew I needed the absolute best. It is beyond understood why Spodek Law Group has a reputation of being the top, if not the best law firm in New York. Alex and Abigail were there every step of the way even at the most unconvenient hours. I could not have asked for more. They are extremely good at what they do and they delivered much much more than just winning my case. A big thank you to Alex and Abigail for all the guidance and counseling and their upmost loyal support that extended far more than just legally. If you need the absolute best than don't hesitate to hire Spodek Law Firm.

I cannot tell you how thankful I am to Todd and Alex for their hard work and dedication to my case. I had never been in any trouble before but I had an unfortunate event occur and in the midst of COVID-19 at that therefore I knew I needed a team that was dedicated to my success. Today- my case has been finalized and I’m walking away with no record and can continue life as a mother and a Grad student worry free. I cannot express enough gratitude for their assistance.
