Tax fraud is a serious crime with severe financial and criminal penalties. The life-changing consequences require aggressive representation from an attorney experienced in this complex area of the law. Tax fraud charges can take many forms, including:

  • Tax evasion - Willfully attempting or aiding and abetting anyone to attempt to evade taxes is charged as a felony. The use of certain shelters and foreign bank accounts can also lead to serious legal trouble.
  • Failure to file tax returns - Failure to file or pay taxes (including estimated taxes), keep records or supply information is a criminal offense.
  • Filing a false tax return - A taxpayer signing or filing a knowingly false return or other tax document is charged in federal court. Tax preparers, accountants and attorneys can also face serious repercussions if they assist in preparation.

Additional tax fraud charges can result from:

  • Underreporting of income
  • Embezzlement
  • Money laundering
  • Ponzi schemes
