NUMEROUS INSTANCES OF TAX FRAUD

Any individual, business, or agency that intentionally tries to pay less taxes than they owe can be charged with tax fraud. There is often no room for vague interpretations or plea bargains. To defend yourself from tax crime charges or tax fraud, you may need to fight to prove your innocence.

Examples of illegal tax fraud or evasion include the following:

  • Failure to pay: willfully attempting to avoid paying owed taxes, or successfully defeating taxes through illegitimate means, is a felony crime;
  • Failing to collect: it is a criminal violation to intentionally fail to collect or forward owed taxes when it is one’s duty to do so;
  • Failing to report: the intentional falsification or absence of a tax return or IRS inquiry, may be a misdemeanor crime; penalties may range well into the hundreds of thousands of dollars; and
  • Conspiracy to defraud the United States: plotting any action that could defraud the country or a government agency, or illegally remove tax resources from the United States, is a federal crime.
