Investigations And The Prosecution Of Tax Evasion Charges
A tax evasion charge originates with the IRS. If the Internal Revenue Service's criminal investigation division (IRSCI) concludes that an individual taxpayer or business enterprise has intentionally defrauded the government through tax nonpayment or underpayment, an agent will move the case forward to the United States Department of Justice tax division.
At that point, another analysis of the case is performed by a federal prosecutor who determines whether to authorize prosecution and move the case forward to the local U.S. Attorney's office. This is the office that ultimately brings tax evasion charges against the accused.
Defending Against Accusations From Multiple Levels Of Prosecution
There are many layers to tax evasion charges, which means there are complicated procedures to follow. While these cases are particularly challenging, the procedures offer several opportunities to combat the charges.
We offer responsiveness and flexibility in handling tough opponents like federal government agencies and representatives with vast legal resources to bring charges against those accused of white collar crimes. No matter what stage of investigation your case is in, we will be dedicated to upholding your rights and helping to tell your side of the story through vigorous representation. We always offer the highest quality counsel and exceptional client service in state and federal cases throughout the United States.
