When Ben Franklin said that nothing is certain except death and taxes, the IRS hadn’t yet been conceived. The agency’s relentless, dogged pursuit of those they perceive as having evaded tax obligations would likely shock even the worldly Franklin. Yet if you’ve been accused of tax fraud or tax evasion by the IRS, you’re likely familiar with their scorched earth tactics.
Tax evasion charges can apply to personal taxes, business taxes, and employment taxes. But the government must prove that you intentionally acted to evade tax obligations or defraud the government and knew the consequences of your actions. If the IRS gets its way, the penalties are severe: fines in the hundreds of thousands of dollars, additional civil penalties, and up to three years in prison.
If you’re being audited by the IRS and suspect you may be under investigation for tax fraud or tax evasion, time is NOT on your side. Tax-related investigations can be a smokescreen for other types of charges (that’s what sent Al Capone to prison), and too often people err by providing too much information. You need an attorney by your side who will protect your rights. You need Superior Law Center.
We will work tirelessly to avoid civil and criminal charges by using defense strategies relevant to your case. For example, we may challenge the evidence as insufficient or discover that the statute of limitations has passed. We may also argue that you made a bone fide mistake, or that you were entrapped.
