Tax fraud and tax evasion are serious crimes that can be brought by federal and/or state prosecutors. There are different actions that the prosecutors and investigators look for when determining whether someone has committed a tax offense which including:
Failure to file tax returns
Understatement of income
Concealment of assets
Dealing in cash
Implausible or inconsistent explanations of behavior
Attempting to conceal illegal activities
Failure to make estimated tax payments
Failure to cooperate with tax authorities
If you believe you are being investigated for or are being prosecuted for any of these, you should speak to a federal criminal tax attorney immediately. It is important to understand that all actions you take during the course of a tax audit may determine whether or not you are charged with a state or federal tax offense. For instance, lying or giving evasive answers to IRS investigators or state tax authorities, delay tactics and other actions designed to mislead IRS or state tax agents can lead to state or federal criminal charges.
