Tax fraud and tax evasion is a common occurrence. 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.
