If you can't avoid tax crime charges, don't avoid legal support

If you are convicted of a criminal tax violation, you have probably done one of two things: hid financial information or lied about it. Both acts can be grounds for criminal charges, and both acts can result in serious consequences for people convicted. 

In order to avoid being investigated by the IRS for potential tax violations, you need to be truthful and fully disclose the necessary information on your taxes. If you are accused of certain types of misconduct, your finances, future and freedom could be in serious jeopardy.

In order to be convicted of a tax offense, it needs to proven that a person deliberately submitted false tax information. Lying about or withholding information from the IRS could certainly lead to criminal charges. The IRS could take action against someone who:

  • Fails to disclose all sources of income
  • Does not submit a tax return
  • Categorizes personal expenses as business expenses
  • Fabricates deductions
  • Lies about having a business or dependents
  • Destroys bank records

These are all very serious allegations, and anyone who is facing them should be aggressive in defending against them. It is possible to protect yourself against the harsh consequences of a tax crime conviction, but taking on the IRS and launching an effective defense can be extremely overwhelming for people who are not familiar with legal procedures and tax law. 

With the help of an attorney, people accused of committing a tax crime can build a defense by challenging searches, seeking the dismissal of improperly obtained information or negotiating a plea bargain to minimize the severity of charges and potential penalties. In some cases, it can be argued that a mistake was made by accident and not on purpose.

Identifying and launching the appropriate defense can be essential in protecting a person from the extensive damage that can be done to a person's life if convicted.
