What Is Tax Evasion?
Income tax evasion, also sometimes referred to as income tax fraud, is when someone knowingly attempts to defraud the IRS and/or fails to file an income tax return. When this happens, the IRS can bring civil or criminal charges against the individual. The majority of tax evasion charges are prosecuted as felonies and, in addition to a prison sentence, you may face hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines and the seizure of your assets.
Common situations that may result in a tax evasion investigation include:
- Underreporting taxable income for several years
- Claiming fictitious or inaccurate deductions
- Understatement of income
- Failure to file a tax return
- Filing false returns
- Dealing in cash
To secure a conviction, the IRS must prove that you intended to defraud the government and that the issue wasn’t merely a mistake. At The Law Offices of Barton Morris, we believe in structuring an aggressive defense, and our tax evasion attorneys will thoroughly research your situation, helping you make sound legal decisions that protect your financial future and your freedom.

Mr. Morris happened to be the second lawyer that I contacted. The first lawyer said he would take my case for a $10K retainer fee and that I had a long road ahead of me. The next day, I contacted Mr. Morris and knew from our first conversation that I was in good hands with his representation. Stop shopping around and hire Barton Morris today!
