How a Tax Fraud Attorney Can Help
There are many situations in which the IRS can bring charges of tax fraud or evasion against you. However, many people don’t appreciate how severe the consequences can be, even for a seemingly small mistake like forgetting to file your taxes one year. Additionally, a problem on your federal taxes can also affect your state taxes, creating an even more complex problem.
Situations that can result in charges being brought against you include:
- Missing tax forms
- Claiming false deductions
- Failing to file your yearly tax return
- Intentionally overestimating your deductions
- Claiming personal expenses as business expenses
- Making false claims to the IRS while being audited
- Making incorrect or inaccurate statements to the IRS while under investigation
