An IRS Attorney Who Understands Tax-Related Crimes
Tax crimes are among the most common federal crimes. Whether it is tax evasion, tax fraud or resistance to fill out tax returns, tax crimes incur federal investigation and subsequent consequences. Tax evasion occurs when a person refuses to pay his or her taxes and uses an illegitimate method to do so. A person may engage in tax evasion to keep the government from knowing his or her actual income. Another tax crime is fraud, whereby a person does not answer the tax return form truthfully. He or she may fill in a wrong Social Security code or enter an incorrect number of dependents. A third tax crime occurs when people resist filling out tax return forms completely.
The FBI makes the initial investigation into a tax crime case. After the agency has completed its examination and analysis of the situation, the case is turned over to the Internal Revenue Service Criminal Investigation Division, also known as the CID. As there are CID stations situated in different parts of the country, the CID is able to take a closer look at the situation. The CID further investigates the case and determines whether or not the suspected person should be charged with tax crime. If the suspected person is considered guilty, he or she will most likely be prosecuted.
