What Is Tax Fraud?
Tax fraud is a federal crime in which someone attempts to evade paying taxes or otherwise defraud the IRS. Although many people make honest mistakes when filing their taxes, tax fraud charges allege that a person knowingly submitted incorrect information.
If you’re accused of tax fraud or believe you’re under investigation, it’s critical to contact an experienced tax fraud defense attorney as soon as possible. At the law office of Phillip A. Linder, we provide the tenacious defense you’ll need during a white-collar crime investigation.
How Our Experienced Litigator Can Help
In order to convict someone of tax fraud, the IRS must prove that the person intentionally underpaid his or her taxes. Individuals can face charges for:
- Failing to submit a tax return
- Submitting a tax return with inaccurate information
- Underreporting income, including wages or tips received as cash
- Inflating expenses or overstating the size of a household
- Misrepresenting your circumstances
If you’re convicted of tax evasion or any other form of tax fraud, you’ll likely face harsh fines and possibly even a lengthy prison sentence. The most effective way to protect your future and ensure your legal rights are observed is by teaming with an experienced lawyer.
