Filing False Tax Returns
Defended against By Our Michigan Fraud Attorneys
A person can be charged with filing a false tax return when their return does not accurately reflect their tax situation. For example, reporting less money than you actually made will be considered filing a false tax return. While filing a false tax return is typically an attempt to defraud the government, many times the false return is simply a result of negligence on part of the taxpayer.
Penalties for Filing False Tax Returns
Whether you intentionally filed false returns or the false returns were simply filed out of negligence will determine what sort of penalties will be assessed. If your returns were filed out of negligence, there will normally be a 5% unpaid tax fee in addition to “failure to pay” fees. However, if you intentionally tried to defraud the government, your penalties will be severe. You could be ordered to pay 75% of the tax unpaid due to the fraud, including personal fines of up to $250,000 and even a prison term.
