Tax fraud and tax evasion is everywhere. In most tax audits, the IRS seeks to claim owed taxes and any penalties or interest. However, if the IRS is suspicious, they can impose a civil tax fraud penalty which is equal to 75% of the tax owed plus interest on the penalty. The IRS could also send the case to the IRS Criminal Investigation Unit for criminal tax prosecution. It’s best to have a skilled and experienced tax attorney on your side when facing charges from the IRS.

The following are the most common criminal investigation cases:

  • Abusive Return Preparer
  • Abusive Tax Schemes
  • Bankruptcy Fraud
  • Corporate Fraud
  • Employment Tax Enforcement
  • Financial Institution Fraud
  • Gaming
  • General Fraud
  • Healthcare Fraud
  • Identity Theft
  • Insurance Fraud
  • Money Laundering
  • Mortgage and Real Estate Fraud
  • Non-filer Enforcement
  • Questionable Refund Program

The penalties associated with these frauds range from paying excessive fines to spending time in a federal penitentiary. Given the personal and financial consequences of an IRS penalty or investigation, you should strongly consider seeking help from a local tax lawyer.
