Legal tax-reduction tips

A recent post explored the sometimes very fine line between legal tax deductions or other methods used to minimize tax responsibilities and alleged criminal acts. Many Minnesota residents understandably want and even need to find ways to limit how much income tax they must pay. This does not by any means indicate that they are criminals or trying to get out of paying their fair share. It simply means they want to not pay more than they need to. The U.S. Tax Code acknowledges many ways that people can legally do this.

The fine line between mistakes and fraud on tax returns

Most Minnesota residents have probably heard about people being charged with tax fraud. If convicted, defendants may experience serious penalties for these offenses. But, just what constitutes fraud when it comes to income taxes? Does the Internal Revenue Service take into account that tax code and procedures are very complicated and can be easily mistaken by taxpayers?

Federal and local investigators involved in financial theft case

Minnesota residents who read stories or hear reports of various white collar crime allegations can understandably be confused at times. There are many different forms of offenses that are considered to be white collar crimes and sometimes a single case may involve multiple allegations which can make it hard to distinguish between the offenses. Some types of white collar crime charges include Ponzi schemes, embezzlement, mail fraud and tax fraud among others.

What can be considered mail fraud?

If you're like many Minnesota residents, you may have read or heard stories in which defendants have been accused of mail fraud. However, do you really know exactly what that means? Just what things might result in you or someone you know being accused of this type of crime?

Identify theft charges leads to sentence

Minnesota residents who have been accused of white collar crimes know that the penalties they may face if convicted can be severe. There are many different types of offenses that are classified as white collar crimes and each may have its own set of penalties. These may also vary based upon individual case circumstances or even the inclusion of plea bargains.
